  • Summary: The game may not have the lasting appeal of Psygnosis' Wipeout or Namco's Ridge Racer, but it has enough gameplay, eye candy, and bonus secrets to put it near the top of what the PlayStation has to offer.

  1. Positive: 6 out of 7

  1. Two parts "Wipeout" and one part "Mario Kart", combined with a feel all its own, make the newest Rollcage a winner across the board.
  2. Amanda De Cadenet -- remember her? -- once said in an interview that she'd rather have five minutes of filth than half an hour of arduous bump 'n' grind and, at last, we understand what she meant.

    One of the finest four-wheeled balls to the wall arcade racers of all time.
  4. For its $10 asking price "Stage II" (and Midway's other Psygnosis refugee "Team Buddies") cannot be beat in replayability. Buy with ease.
  5. Like all Psygnosis games, Rollcage Stage II is full of eye candy, with flashy graphics and colorful decor up the wazoo.
  6. A great game and worth buying, however don't expect to be playing it in a months time.
  7. The game may not have the lasting appeal of Psygnosis' "Wipeout" or Namco's "Ridge Racer," but it has enough gameplay, eye candy, and bonus secrets to put it near the top of what the PlayStation has to offer.

    One of the best PS games I have ever tried. Everything is perfect, and in addition they threwed in a soundtrack, so fitting, I have never heared better. Something else than the standard EA soundtracks. Collapse

    Although a little difficult at times, the great gameplay and the amazing soundtrack makes this racing classic a must-have for any Playstation game collection. Expand

    It's a crying shame this series never made it past the PSone generation. Heck, i'd be satisfied with a half decent clone with all the hours I've poured into this underrated gem.

    Wipeout is great and all, but Rollcage amps up the fun factor whilst maintaining that blistering feeling of speed. With a surprising amount of depth, there is certainly more than one way to win a race which was quite groundbreaking for the time. Not fussed on finishing first? No worries. Just pummel your opponents with weapons to gain enough points to push you across the line instead. A measure of customization would have been extremely welcome but there's more than enough features here to keep you satisfied for hours. And who would've thought that 2 player rubble soccer could be so much fun? And you can't go past 2 player "Firefox" level as you speed around a giant ring, filling the arena with those spinning missiles. Amazing.

    It doesn't demand the same level of punishing precision as the Wipeout series but is still satisfyingly difficult to finish to completion. Play it now!

    At the time of release Rollcage, and this sequel, offered something a little different and quicker paced than the majority of other racing games. It certainly wasn’t a game you’d find yourself playing for months on end but it was fun whilst it lasted. Expand
