  • Excerpt: NEC Interchannel’s first offering to the U.S. public is an ultramodern racer with the unfortunate name of “Tube Slider” (which brings to mind images of puffy, waxy-skinned man sliding through a waterpark on an inner tube and not the sleek, speed-rich vehicles that are actually in the game). Well, at least it wasn’t called Tube Slider Xtreme.

Tube Slider

Nintendo World Report
26 June 2003
  • Summary: Tube Sliding should become an olympic sport. But then it would probably be respected about as much as curling.
  • Pros: Detailed environs, Some cool music, Spot-on control
  • Cons: Cheap difficulty, Only ten tracks, Pretty darn generic

Tube Slider

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: Possibly the biggest letdown of TS is the small number of tracks available. The tracks included are well designed. All the tracks are enclosed tubes – hey, that’s where the title came from! – and whip around and around some cool environments that you can never take a good look at unless you like riding in 4 th Place. The presentation is great but also lacking are the racing modes, which break down to the bare necessities: Time Trial, Grand Prix and Free Race.

Tube Slider Review

GameSpot
23 April 2003
  • Excerpt: Tube Slider marks NEC's return to the North American video game market after a nearly decade-long hiatus that began with the fall of the company's own video game platform, the TurboGrafx-16. It may warm the hearts of sentimental gamers to see NEC's name on a video game once again, but unfortunately for them, and for NEC, Tube Slider is as an uninspired futuristic racer, and it definitely isn't the comeback hit they might've hoped for.
  • Pros: N/A
