Rumble Racing User Reviews
Graphics - 4.5 - Richly detailed tracks and cool-looking fantasy cars give Rumble Racing the gaming equivalent of a flame paint job - flashy, clean, and fun. The smoke and fire effects kick butt, too.
This screen shows one of the power-ups in use. As you can see, its not that great for a PS2 game, but it was for a PS2 game in its early years! The moutains in the background are kind of choppy at the top, but you really aren't going to be noticing that at 142 mph, are you? The car isn't in too much detail in comparison to these cars from Burnout on the Xbox.
Sound - 4.5 - High-octane music, from country to rock, keeps the audio revving. Jess Harnell's off-the-beaten-path commentary will either thrill or annoy you - there's no in-between. At least it's different.
Cool tunes, don't you agree? Also notice Jess Harnell's commentary in 3:54 to 4:00.
Control - 5.0 - Power-ups are easy to launch; combining rear-fire with rear-view works surprisingly well. Analog steering is there for technicians, but drivers who prefer to tap around corners with the directional pad will be happy, too.
Fun Factor - 5.0 - No NASCAR? No problem! Rumble Racing works better as a hot-rod game anyway, and the best gameplay bits of the first title are well represented in the second. This is arcade racing at it's finest.
Can you see those awesome moves? Don't tell me that's not cool! The bad:
Not much for this one!Summary:
Nascar Rumble on the PlayStation was a woefully under-appreciated game; the arcade gameplay rocked, but it's jacked-up, light-hearted take on stock car racing never really found it's audience. Revenge, it seems, is sweet: Rumble Racing loses the license, adds the power of the PS2, and floors the formula all the way to hot-rod heaven.

Rumble Racing combines the high-flying fantasy tracks of San Francisco Rush with the kind of midair stunts you would find in a skateboarding game: Barrel rolls, backflips, and corkscrew twists can yield massive speed boosts. From st...
Great gameplay, descent graphics, fun game, cool cars, awesome levels, cool trick mode.....The bad:
Don't let the kiddish look fool you. This is actually a great game that people of all ages will enjoy. It has a very cool multi-player mode with several types of tricks to pull off and it won't get boring anytime soon. The storyline missions are fun too but get repetitive and old kinda fast.
Overall Outcome: Buy It!
A True Arcade Racer, plenty of powerups, a LOT of codes, cheats, shortcuts, stunts, speed, and its a good challengeThe bad:
any fan of any arcade racer should get this right now
this game plays well and looks good enough for a ps2 game.the tracks are cool with lots of shortcuts but you need to know where some of them are as they can be hard to spot at 180mph!it has usual race modes plus co-op championship and stunt mode.you have to spin and flip your car when in the air to gain speed boosts as well as pick up weapons to slow down your opponents.weapons can be turned off if you want.if you liked rollcage then you`ll like this.rent it and see what you think and i bet you will want to buy it.
