    A really cool game that I enjoyed a lot. Unfortunately, because of the horrid rubber band AI, I have to cut off a star from my rating. This really hurts the game in a way it shouldn't. I prefer my wins by skill and not dumb luck.
  2. A fun and truly original jaunt which breaks the mold of combat racing titles.
  3. Perhaps the greatest drawback to Mad Dash Racing is the interface, which can be confusing at times.
  4. It's a good title for what it is - Crash Bandicoot gone psycho.
  5. A lot of fun. I just wish there was not so much going on all the time because I really felt out of control through the majority of the races.

    A blisteringly fast racer for one to four players with bizarre tracks, edgy characters, and exhilarating action.

    If there's anything to get disappointed about, it's that once you've figured out your perfect routes, you'll have little interest in the actual act of running through the levels, unlike most racing titles, where it's usually the opposite experience.
  8. If you can get around the framerate hiccups and seemingly unnecessary load times, this game is a worthy purchase.

    I was expecting to really like this title even after reading some sub par reviews. But as it turns out, I think I like this game less than I was expecting to really like this title even after reading some sub par reviews. But as it turns out, I think I like this game less than most reviewers did. It's just not fun. Full Review »

    It's got good graphics, sound and fun. Ever since I played it I thought it was the best game in history.
