    It's a fun game and the graphics are far from - ahem - wack, with impressive detail (especially the funfair on the pier), destructible scenery and progressive vehicle damage, all in solid, smooth 3D. [Jan 2007, p.83]
  2. The vehicles aren't nearly as customizable as in "Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition" or as destructive as in "Twisted Metal: Head-On," but, thanks mostly to the multiplayer and extra single-player modes, Rush provides several days of enjoyable arcade style racing.
  3. Leaving aside the rubbish storyline, the dialogue sounds like it was written by a white chav who thinks he's black, and characters are only able to speak if they're waving their arms around at the same time. It makes the Fast and the Furious flicks look like Shakespeare.

    An adequate street racer that does everything you'd expect, but nowhere near well enough to challenge the big boys of the chav's race scene. [Christmas 2006, p.82]
  5. In truth, I honestly believe that a traditional Rush game, marketed at a low price-point, would have probably sold better than this strictly par street racing release.
  6. A PSP update of a middling street racing game that really wasn't worth your time when it was released on consoles last year, and certainly isn't worth your time now.

    The open-ended world felt entirely tacked on and unnecessary, and the inclusion of classic modes was little more than a poorly veiled concession to fans of the older games.
  8. The game's slipshod controls and lame story mode weigh it down. Even worse, players can't pimp their own rides -- that's handled automatically by West Coast Customs.
  9. 50
    A reasonable game but its lack of challenge and enticement makes it fall far behind the pack.

    Series fans may enjoy the returning stunt mode and the local wi-fi multiplayer, but Rush is too uneven to really recommend. [Feb. 2007, p.83]
