  1. Avoid at all costs, unless you are an offroad junkie that doesn't mind racing nondescript blocks around a nondescript track.
  2. While Angel Studios does have something to build on here such as the cool Career progression and checkpoint-based races, they need to seriously consider what they are doing with the control and AI.

    The game is just boring. [Jan 2002, p.90]
  4. Next Generation Magazine

    The Xbox version boasts improved controls over its PS2 counterpart, but the basic gameplay is just as dull. [Jan 2002, p.31]
  5. All of the problems the off-road games have experienced in the past are as visible in this version as a Hummer with its high beams on.
