    So what if it's cheap. You "steer" by hitting L and R which make you switch tracks. I for one really enjoyed it and found it quite original. Quite a laugh multiplayer.

    One of the best games for the Xbox. Sure graphics are poor but it's only $20 bucks and is fun and simple.

    Game Informer's review is moronic. It is a SLOT CAR game, since when can you steer a slot car. I think this review should be removed from Metacritic, the reviewer is obviously an idiot. Sure this game doesn't have the greastest graphics but it is easy to pick up, fast and best of all fun. Multiplayer is great.

    Everything about it screams budget ,sure, but there are much worse full-priced games on the Xbox. [Oct/Nov 2003, p.99]
  2. For a $20 game, the environments look pretty dang good. You will be racing over and under tables and beds and plants plus whatever else they throw at you. I wouldn't say its eye candy, but they look good.
  3. Unforgiving AI, lack of play options to customize your game, and the annoying fact that you can’t restart a race during a championship really can make the game more aggravating than enjoyable.
