  1. Despite throwing around more polygons than any other Xbox racer we've seen, Racing Evoluzione rarely if ever skips a frame. And that includes our appraisal of the two-player split-screen, which was examined at jaw-to-the-floor inducing length.
  2. With a good story, excellent graphics, varied tracks, and a whole lot of great racing machines that most of us only dream of driving, Apex is one of the better racers to be found on the Xbox.
  3. A fine game but in terms of depth it's a paintscratch away from the surface.
  4. What I liked best was how most of the tracks were set up in a way to guarantee fast or exciting finishes. [Mar 2003, p.64]
  5. Why should I worry about getting the best car when just about anyone can race to the front regardless? [May 2003, p.89]
  6. The physics need major work, the AI seems a little funny, the sound is terrible, and frankly, the racing just isn't that exciting.
  7. For a game that could have been that potential leap forward, it's a real shame that all Apex manages to do is present a mediocre-to-poor driving experience in a painfully threadbare setting.

    I thought Atari was a good company, like Sega. But I am obviously wrong. The physics are so bad and the game is so easy (other than the, hit I thought Atari was a good company, like Sega. But I am obviously wrong. The physics are so bad and the game is so easy (other than the, hit the car and it somehow speeds of you AI cheat) that it is funny. Atari, you had the perfect Racing game idea and ruined it, I'm disappointed. Collapse
