A decent racer

Bladestar, Amazon

  • Summary: Decent controls, undistinguishable racers, interesting tracks.. The track editor is interesting, though. You'll probably spend about 20 hours if you complete this game.

Fun game from my childhood!

ZstarZ, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: I am happy to have purchased this game for old times sake! It is a very poorly designed racing game when compared to others of its kind. The only true fun factor of this game in my opinion is the Trak Editor feature. This feature allows you to build your own tracks, and then race on them with a friend! Provides hours of entertainment building and saving your own tracks The campaign mode isn't worth it as the racing can get repetitive and boring quite quickly.

The editor is amazing, but what a horrible game!

Stalvern, Amazon

  • Summary: I love futuristic racing games like Wipeout and F-Zero, so, when I found out about HSX, I HAD to get it. Not only did it promise frenetic racing action as in those venerable series, it included a track editor as well! However, actually playing the game was a major let-down compared to what I had expected. It seems that every positive review of this game has focused on the track editor.

A LOT FUN FOR A VERY SMALL PRICE 8 OUT OF 10

ACEMAN1 "HERE TO PISS YOU OFF", Amazon
22 March 2009
  • Summary: Although Hypersonic Xtreme received mixed reviews from critics, the few gamers who bought this underrated and underappreciated Majesco title were given quite a big surprise for such small price. Although it's been billed as a "Wipeout Clone" who cares? It's a solid futuristic racer that will provide loads of entertainment. WHAT THE GAME IS: A futuristic racing budget title. It has no actual storyline, it's just a futuristic racing title.

An excellent value!

Thomas A. Florio, Amazon
14 March 2006
  • Summary: HSX is much like Wipeout in its gameplay. It has very good weather effects (rain hits the camera like a Rain-X treated windshield), decent music, vehicles (nice variety), racetracks, vibration effects, etc. There are three view modes that should suit all tastes -- or most, anyway. Each track is different (there are five courses, each with six tracks) but not in a night-or-day way, but the sense of speed is fantastic and I looked forward to going onto the next one.

Best-spent $10 -- ever.

Kharmic Tide Pool, Amazon
9 October 2003
  • Summary: For $10 there's no other game out there that matches this value. The tragedy of HSX is that it feels unfinished. The game does not save record times for player-made tracks, nor does it save weather on player-made tracks. Some of the sub menus only have one item in them and, overall, the game feels like it needed about five more months of work. What stands out is that HSX allows players to design their own tracks -- anywhere on Earth -- from scratch.

A stripped down WipeOut

Mike Sweeney "eldirty", Amazon
31 January 2003
  • Summary: First off I must admit that I'm a sucker for ultra-stylized games, such as the WipeOut Series, Frequency, the Extreme G series, etc...P>When I got the game, I was a little hesitant, because of the poor resolution of the cover art ...but heck, it could have just been a rush art job. The game isn't bad, if your expecting something like wipeout, you'll get it in a stripped down version.
