Excerpt: Mad dash racing was the first ever game I bought on the X-BOX. I bought it because it was a multi-player game so that the whole family and friends could all play together and compared to the price of say Mario Kart it was cheap. ***Packaging*** It comes in a sealed typically green XBOX DVD case.
A racing game on foot... but very poorly done with no lasting gameplay, although fun for five mins

Excerpt: THE PLOT: Well, there isnt really one as far as I can tell. You take one of several small furry characters and try to get from the start to the end of the race as quick as possible, encountering various obstacles on the way.
Excerpt: Mad dash is one of those titles u can pick up at the bottom of the bargain bin or in the back of someones car at a local car boot, as its been around for quite a while now, able to be bought with the loose cash at the bottom of your pocket. However, dont let this fool you.
Excerpt: After watching my brother play this game for weeks on end, i decided to delve into it myself. After one frustrating race, with him taking every shortcut imaginable, of which there are so many, i lost, and he jumped around the room( i beat you, i beat you), and he's only 8!!
Excerpt: Now here is an interesting game if ever I’ve heard it. ‘Mad Dash’ is one of those games that sits at the bottom of your collection until one drunken night (with your student housemates) you decide that even though you've been playing SSX for 4 weeks solid you fancy a change, Bad move!
Summary: This is a simple game that is probably meant for younger kids between the ages of 7 and 12. If I give you my honest opinion, it is that the game doesn't have enough racing. It is a good game but I think it needs to have more tracks, more characters and more racing.
Summary: Mad Dash Racing wasn't the most popular title on the original XBOX despite being published by Eidos. Plus, it was at a time when racing games went into rapid decline, and music games were becoming ever more popular (particularly in the 360/PS3/Wii period).
