Summary: "NASCAR Rumble", IMO, was a rather underrated racing title for the PS1. I think the "NASCAR" moniker turned a lot of people off from what was radically different from the famous sport, as the game offered crazy weapons, featured tracks that were more than just endless loops, and gave quite an adrenaline rush. Well, the PS2 sequel has those things as well, but it's a perfect example of an unambitious sequel.
Summary: EA Sports usually bring great sporting games out, and they haven't disappointed with this title, it's just that they have added the usual unnecessary fillers that bring the game down later on. Rumble Racing is much like a Hot Wheels game, in-fact, apart from the backgrounds being more a realistic setting rather than a childs bedroom, both games are identical in many ways.
When the computer cheats, the game isn't fun anymore.

Summary: Graphics - Good enough, I suppose, but not the best. They are a little on the grainy side, especially during the introduction movie. Which doesn't make sense, because it uses shots from the game! How is it that playing the game looks better than the intro? The tracks aren't really anything special. Though I have to admit I have yet to see another car racing game with tracks full of places to do stunts. Controls - Very smooth. No problems here. Sound - Excellent.
Summary: The commentary is embarrasing. Fortunately, you can turn it off in the options section. Step 2. You must not be a graphics hound, parts of the game look like a N64 game. It has very poor texturing in some parts and yet other parts of the game look GREAT! What a mystery. Step 3. You must like racing games that would be considered arcade. You must love power-ups and short cuts. Step 4. If you don't like tough games, you won't like this game.
Summary: This is a pretty good game (well short from great). I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could. I will list the good and the bad. Good: *The Graphics *The Powerups (especially the Twister!) *2 player co-op mode Bad: *2 players! I would give it 4 stars if it had 4 players *It took me 2 weeks to win this game. A five star game should take 1-4 months to win. This is only good if your a big racing fan. I would save your money for something like TM Black.
Summary: I was very pleased with this fun game when I started. Easy to get going, familiar to anyone who has played SSX (and if you haven't, stop reading now and buy it immediately), easy enough to progress. Like SSX, finding the short cuts and being able to pull off tricks in the right places becomes increasingly important (though these are cars, not snowboarders, so the tricks are fairly limited). Like SSX, you need to win at each three-race level to unlock the following one.
