  1. Scrap Metal is a solid, all-around vehicular combat game.
  2. There’s much worse out there, and even though Scrap Metal may not rise too far above the heap, but it’s definitely up there, on pure fun alone.
  3. Scrap Metal doesn't redefine this genre, but it does offer some unique twists that will entertain and challenge gamers. There are a few annoyances with the controls, but the overall gameplay and game options far outweigh these slight irritations.
  4. With 20-plus cars to unlock (and upgrade) and modes ranging from straight-up, no-weapons racing to missions where you protect a VIP--all of which are seriously more fun when up to four buddies join in--Scrap Metal is more than worth the $10 download. [Jun 2010, p.81]
  5. This top-down racer offers both thrills and frills, but it gets some of the basics wrong.
  6. If you're looking for something to relax and just have fun with, Scrap Metal is your game.
  7. A tedious top-down racer priced at three times its worth. Disappointing stuff from the N+ boys. [June 2010, p.121]
