  1. I haven't seen environments and vehicles this outstanding since "Wreckless," and the replays rank among the most stunning ever. [Jan 2004, p.66]
  2. Worthy of a rental, and it may just spawn its own little cult. [Jan 2004, p.151]
  3. A serious lack of gameplay depth and overall game length keep me from recommending this game to anyone other than a driving game freak.
  4. It's competently done, but fairly dull.
  5. The hokey storyline, complete with bad B-movie live-action scenes, makes the whole thing feel campy and fun, and what Maximum Chase might lack in longevity it makes up for with sheer craziness.
  6. I was somewhat impressed until I had to do the shooting levels. I just think it is a very bad mix and it should never be tried again.
  7. While there isn’t much there, it’s fun to play while it lasts.
  8. It's not a good sign when a game's replay mode outdoes its interactive sequences. [Mar 2004, p.90]
  9. There is no one element that leads to the game's failure. Rather it is a combination of the gameplay, graphics, and sound which ultimately lead this game to its demise.
  10. Players simply watch the drama unfold with no interaction at all, making Maximum chase a boring plod at best. [Mar 2004, p.81]

    Even for an arcade action game, Maximum Chase is short and easy. You'll blow through the entire game in less than an afternoon. There are special objectives to beat in order to unlock things such as new cars and camera filters, but there isn't much incentive to replay this game once you've beaten it.
  12. Its tiring shooting sequences, somewhat rushed production value, and lack of replay value hurt it badly.

    If you have any sort of good taste in games whatsoever, please do not buy this game -- instead, have someone else buy it, laugh at him, and then make fun of the title together over a Sunday afternoon. It's a short game, besides.
