  1. Apex's drab driving and painfully dim AI drivers drag down an otherwise interesting idea.
  2. The physics need major work, the AI seems a little funny, the sound is terrible, and frankly, the racing just isn't that exciting.
  3. The idea behind it was brilliant, but the execution drug it right out of innovative and right into mediocrity.

    Mild annoyances in the interface, a design mode without anything to design, and some questionable racing physics keep the game from the top of the podium. With that said, Apex is an enjoyable and mildly addictive title with plenty of arcade action for racing fans.
  5. Its story concept and great visuals give it a nice boost, but its lack of options and frustrating AI add some unnecessary weight.

    Imagine building one of the most visually arresting games in recent memory, infusing the track design with genuine ingenuity, then having your work cruelly undermined by a learning curve shallower than a hill in Holland. RE is simply not challenging enough. [March 2003, p94]

El juego tiene variedad aceptable de coches y carreras. tiene gráficos decentillos para su época y los vehículos poseen daños visibles. una pega es que podría resultar un poco extraño la forma en que se simula los impactos al chocar o al tomar las curvas, un excelente y divertido juego de conducción Full Review »
