Graphics are the highlight of this game

  • Excerpt: "...3 different types of VW Beetle which you can use in the races: one for speed, one for handling and one for acceleration. Each looking slightly different from the other. There is however a lack of tracks, there are only a handful of tracks in the game, not enough to keep you playing for a long time. The game ends once you finish all the tracks, therefore you'll probably finish the game in 1 or 2 sittings. 1 Plus this game does have, is that the game ...
  • Pros: Good graphics, Good gameplay, decent enough AI .
  • Cons: Multiplayer mode is dull, especially the battle mode .  Lack of tracks .

  • Excerpt: "...prime years of N64 playing, Beetle Adventure Racing was one of the cheap and cheerful budget buys that offered you an alternative to the more mainstream racing games. The graphics were reasonably good and the game was easy to play. The game involves pitting your wits against VW Beetles in a VW Beetle of your own. There are three levels - easy, medium and hard and the idea of the game is to enroll in a championship whereby you unlock courses by coming ...
  • Pros: Fun courses, good multiplayer mode
  • Cons: Pretty easy

  • Excerpt: "...hey that’s a good thing. Beetle Adventure Racing surely represents its title nicely; it’s one big adventure packed with lots of surprises, thrills, and of course spills. Gameplay: 9/10 -------------- The opening intro pretty much demonstrates the wackiness and excitement that BAR brings. The championship mode is the place where you’ll spend hours driving your bug, but there’s also a two-player competition and multiplayer ...
  • Pros: 6 Huge tracks, very challenging, lots of hidden goodies
  • Cons: Needs a couple of more tracks, music should be more involving

  • Excerpt: "...game in the least. The Beetle battle mode, wherein two to four players try to gather six differently colored beetle icons and escape first, just misses its mark. The arenas are often so large so that you begin playing more by watching your radar than the actual screen. They're not badly designed, but they make you wish for the simply constructed and compact "deathmatch" levels of Mario Kart 64. Meanwhile, the two-player race option is weak since there ...

  • Excerpt: "...fun rather than realism. EA's Beetle Adventure Racing shouldn't even be thought of as being within the same genre as games like Sony's Gran Turismo or Sega's Sega Rally 2, as it really belongs more to the crazy racing offshoot pioneered by Midway's San Francisco Rush. That, of course, means Beetle Adventure Racing is rife with shortcuts and jumps, but the physics are more down to earth than its San Francisco cousin, making you feel much more in ...
  • Pros: fun, fun, fun

  • Excerpt: "Beetle Adventure Racing really shines in its single-player mode. Even without the appeal of letting you find each of the track's shortcuts and collect all the boxes to open up the game's secrets, the basic racing model is quite sound. The tracks are well made, and the gameplay is challenging to the point where you'll begin memorizing where you want to be on the other side of the turn to ensure getting that extra turbo-boost (something I haven't felt ...

  • Excerpt: "...gaming beauty at its best. Beetle Adventure Racing combines fun, exploratious racing in a stylish car with top of the line eye candy that will make you go "ooh" at every turn, mixed with incredible sound, graphics, and one heckuva addictive multiplayer mode that will keep you glued to your set for hours. This game adds lots of replayability with it multiple pathways, tracks, and shortcuts and keeps you coming back every time. You always find something ...

  • Excerpt: "Beetle Adventure Racing is probably the most fun and frantic racing game I have played on the Nintendo 64. The multiplayer battle is great fun especially when you are trying to push your freinds of the edge of the Rooftop and they are firing missiles at you! The single player game is quite fun too with hidden suprises on each course including a cheat menu which increases the games fun due to the fact that you can customise almost anything you want. ...
  • Pros: Great racer, millions of shortcuts, good selection of cars
  • Cons: Tracks can be too long and can become boring in one player

  • Excerpt: "Ummmm. Beetle Adventure Racing. On paper, this game has the makings of a classic. Huge tracks, hundreds of short cuts, and cool Beetles to race. But along the way something went wrong. Unfortunately, the very details which should have made it great have been its downfall. The tracks are just too big. It takes between 6 and 9 minutes to complete a three lap race. There is a tournament mode which allows you to un-lock new tracks, but it can be sooooo ...
  • Pros: Massive, multi - layered tracks .   Oh, and there's a T - Rex !
  • Cons: Requires lots of patience .   Not much replay value .

Ein VW Käfer im Nintendo-Reich

  • Summary: Alle Besitzer/innen eines Nintendo 64 sollten jetzt einmal kurz aufpassen, vorausgesetzt, dass ein Interesse an Rennspielen besteht. Denn bei „Beetle Adventure Racing“ handelt es sich um ein Spiel, welches ach mehrere Jahre nach seinem Erscheinen es meiner Meinung nach nicht verdient hat, in der Versenkung zu verschwinden bzw. in Vergessenheit zu geraten.
  • Pros: Schön bunte und stets flüssige Grafik, sehr hoher Mehrspielerspaß, der eine hohe Langzeitmotivation verspricht, gelungene Kamera und Steuerung, abwechslungsreiche Strecken voll mit Extras und Abzweigungen
  • Cons: Viel zu geringer Umfang im Einspielermodus, Schwierigkeitsgrad ist leider sehr unausgewogen (anfangs zu leicht, später teilweise unfair), ganz schwacher Soundtrack
