  1. The tracks are dull and lifeless, with little to no detail and the same circular pattern. In addition, each car handles the same, no matter which model you select.
  2. A pretty dull game. Almost every facet of this game feels monotonous and could even be described as boring.
  3. It's got bad graphics, boring, repetitive missions, and not enough variety to justify toiling through race after race. The game is really nothing more than a photo and video collection of the race's history with some interactive parts to tie it together.
  4. I’ve played better Flash games. I’ve played better racers on the Game Boy Advance. Those are both very sad statements that I hope I never have to make again.

    This game might be worth a rent for a diehard Indy fan who is not an experienced gamer.

I love the mechanics of racing and the retro era. The many negatives I see lament that only one track is available. Well it is a game about one track...Indy! I do agree that they should not have limited the car selection so much. But the various cars do drive differently. Full Review »

The only thing "accurate" about this game is the information about the cars and track... the gameplay has little basis in reality. The only thing "challenging" is trying to keep your lunch down due to severe nausea resulting from profound regret over wasting your money. Finally, the only thing "fun" here is laughing at the absolutely pathetic visuals... racing games on the N64 looked better than this. Avoid this game at all costs, even if you are a die-hard racing fan. Instead, save your money for Mario Kart. Full Review »

    I suspect this might be a game where the hardcore doesn't get it. It isn't mario kart, but it has its merits. By far the mostI suspect this might be a game where the hardcore doesn't get it. It isn't mario kart, but it has its merits. By far the most effective driver aids on the platform, it is very hard to lose control in this game. The drafting/slingshot game mechanic are very nicely done. Now if I could only avoid the pits, and only '60's cars? Full Review »
