  1. Cheat Code Central
    It is also a game that will have you clocking in more than a few hours to beat. Again, that is a great thing but at times can add to the frustration to the player.
  2. 79
    Very deep and is worth every penny of its price if you take the time to get to know it.
  3. Looks good but has some problems with control elements, which can only be described as sluggish in some instances.
  4. Official Xbox Magazine
    The problem here is that little about Lotus Challenge really stands out. [May 2003, p.79]
  5. There’s a clever smattering of Challenge modes, various original and well-handled Stunts for you to master and enough tracks and vehicles to give the game decent longevity.
  6. 60
    Easily the game's worst trait is its sound. The Formula One cars sound more like lawn mowers burning nitrous oxide than like the most responsive and powerful automobiles in existence.
  7. The balance of skill based gameplay and traditional racing makes Lotus Challenge a competitor in today’s generation of racers, but some of the game’s handling letdowns keeps it from pulling ahead of the pack.
  8. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    The game's strange mix of sim and arcade gameplay will please no one, and will leave serious Lotus fans in support groups, talking about what could have been. [June 2003, p.124]
  9. Xbox Nation Magazine
    The thrill of driving classic Lotus cars is obliterated by its unresponsive handling. [April/May 2003, p.93]
