    The Infinitrax track generation system is interesting. By making use of six user-defined inputs such as curvature, hilliness, and track width, Infinitrax generates new courses on the fly.
  2. The key differences between something like "Wipeout" and Pulse Racer is that "Wipeout" has a compelling, cohesive look, a great soundtrack, an interesting track design, and fun, responsive controls, while Pulse Racer bears none of these traits.
  3. Officially the worst Xbox game I've ever played... Play this title only if you don't have Dr. Kevorkian's number handy. [Feb 2003, p.105]
  4. Pulse's worst crime isn't even that it looks hideous (both technically and artistically); the real sin here is its lack of feel. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.88]

    Easily one of the worst racers on the market.
  6. Simply put this is the worst game we’ve seen on the Xbox. Before you even touch the controller you have to endure the pathetic excuse for graphics. The textures are about as bland as you can get, the visual effects are comparative to the Game Boy Advance and the vehicle models do anything but inspire.
  7. This is the worst Xbox game available, in every category, from graphics through gameplay. [Feb 2003, p.75]

    Wow what a great game. It was the best game I had, but my friend stole it. I'm going to buy another copy, it's that good.
