    As with other Namco Live Arcade games, the coin-op's alternating-turns two-player mode is gone(update the emulator already, Namco!), so you New Rally-X replay value depends entirely on how much nostalgia you've got in the tank. [Mar 2007, p.81]

    Overall, it makes for a slightly better game than "Pac-Man" and "Ms Pac-Man," though that's not saying much. [Feb 2007, p.101]

    New Rally-X was the mostly-forgotten semi-sequel to Rally-X in the arcade, and it most definitely should have stayed forgotten. Namco: New Rally-X was the mostly-forgotten semi-sequel to Rally-X in the arcade, and it most definitely should have stayed forgotten. Namco: Here's a thought... instead of ransoming every old decrepit arcade title off for $5 a pop, how about bundling 3 or more together for that price, and actually make the download worth it? Here's an idea for the first one: Bundle all of the Pac-Man games you haven't already released! (Pac-Land, Jr. Pac-Man, Pac-Mania, Professor Pac-Man, and Super Pac-Man) I'd buy that for $5!
