Play Time (Sep, 1991)
Für die Ultra-Skate-Freaks unter Euch wird TOUR DE TRASH vielleicht etwas müde sein, man möchte ja schließlich selbst auf die Schnauze fallen. Allen anderen, die Szeneluft schnuppern wollen oder einfach nur mal was Exotisches in Ihren Spieljungen schieben wollen ist das Spiel durchaus zu empfehlen.
Video Games (Sep, 1991)
Hätte man die Rampenakrobatik motivierender gestaltet und ein paar Kleinigkeiten im Rennabschnitt hinzugefügt, hätte Tour de Trash den Sprung zum Oberklassen-Modul. Ein schönes Spiel, aber kein “Muß".
Power Play (Sep, 1991)
Spielerisch und technisch ist die Tour de Thrash eine öde Nummer – kein guter Game-Boy-Einstieg für Electronic Arts.
Raze (Oct, 1991)
The two sections of play make Skate or Die an attractive game. But the gameplay soon bores as these stages are very repetitive. However, if you're one of those people who play the Lynx's California Games skating section all the time, you may find the monochrome version quite a trip. But a whole game based around the sport is a bit much.
While Tour de Thrash is not a bad game, it just doesn't offer enough to play against within that game.
