    While it may seem like I'm being harsh on a game that costs as much as lunch at your favorite burrito shack, I can't help but feel this game does absolutely nothing to draw anyone in, especially where there are other racers that do it better at the same price or cheaper with more replay value and heaven forbid some kind of online interaction.

    Would I recommend the game? Yes, I would. It is fun, fast, frantic, chaotic, rewarding when played in a group and infuriating. So pretty much all the ingredients for a good old-fashioned night in around the TV with some like-minded buddies. It's a shame online wasn't included and not as much effort was made in the game's menu presentation, but for such a low price point, it is definitely worth a purchase.

    With that said, Bang Bang Racing feels like a homage to several 16-bit classics, including the hugely popular Micro Machines game. It just shows how, despite all the technological advances that can be exploited by video game developers, sometimes it's the most simple idea that works. However, this game could have been so much more with online gameplay and that really puts the longevity of Bang Bang Racing into perspective.

    Pretty, nice looking Arcade racing game with lots of tracks, cars and tournaments. Lack of any multiplayer online is a huge letdown.

    BBR is a fun game but feels like it is lacking something. With no online multiplayer available, it is not a game with maximum replay value, but if you have willing friends to play with, you could no doubt have lots of fun. It has a decent amount of play time for the 800MSP price tag, but there is nothing in particular drawing me back in to play it.

    I discourage you from buying Bang Bang Racing – it has nothing to offer apart from an enjoyable driving model. [August 2012, p.85]

    10 bucks isn't bad for a few hours of pleasantly frenzied multiplayer, provided you can coax a few comrades into joining you for the local-only ride.

    This power up-less arcade racer is entertaining if you have some friends over, but even then there are better alternatives out there.

    Sure, it's accessible and cheap, but the controls aren't there and the multiplayer is sub-par.

    Nothing more than Bland Bland Racing. [Sept 2012, p.101]

    Bang Bang Racing gives the player a real arcade feeling. Unfortunately the game lacks creativity. There isn't a whole lot of content and after a short time you have seen the same circuits enough to get bored of them. With a camera angle that doesn't work properly you can say that Bang Bang Racing has failed to impress.
