  • Summary: An original title designed for the Xbox video game system, Mad Dash Racing combines high-speed combat racing and 3D adventure action with a crew of motley characters for an insane multi-player competition!

    Compete in a race for survival against the evil Hex, his dirty minions and your
    unforgiving friends. Glide across rivers of hot, steaming lava, bash through mammoth boulders, and slide down icy glaciers to beat the other racers and escape Hex's wicked wrath. Do whatever it takes to cross the finish line first from shooting weapon power-ups, planning scheming attacks, or knocking your opponents off track with a sharp elbow nudge. Expand

    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. Perhaps the greatest drawback to Mad Dash Racing is the interface, which can be confusing at times.
  3. 78
    A blisteringly fast racer for one to four players with bizarre tracks, edgy characters, and exhilarating action.
  4. 70
    A good-looking game with good split-screen multiplayer but a relatively dull single-player game.
  5. I guess not being interested in the game's rules themselves is a basic qualm. [Jan 2002, p.87]

    It'll be too frustrating and unforgiving for most people to get into. If you enjoyed "SSX Tricky," and like the thought of a harder, half-platformer-half-racer hybrid version, though, you'll probably find it just right.

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

    It's fun as a multiplayer, my kids love it.

    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. Collapse
