    Codemasters' Race Driver 2006 will hook you up with dozens of hours of both single and multiplayer gaming that'll test your wheel skills in just about every type of motorsport racing there is.
  2. Race Driver 2006 is one of the better racing games and the best racing sim I have played on the PSP since its launch.
  3. You simply will not find a more complete driving simulator for your PSP.
  4. Diehard gearheads out there who really like to tinker with a vehicles set-up might be a little disappointed with inability to do so in the Career or Trans World Mode. However, that being said, with great graphics, good sound and some very engaging gameplay (multiplayer included) one cannot go wrong with this racing title.

    The presentation is excellent as well. Though not as sharp as the PS2 version, the graphics look excellent, the audio is solid, and overall, this is a very well-rounded racing simulation with plenty to do.
  6. A really solid racer that feels a tad dated and features way too much load time. [Aug 2006, p.82]

    With the flood of racing titles hitting the PSP right now, it'd be easy to miss Race Driver 2006. But if you're craving variety and great control in portable form, this is the game for you.
