So, there's nothing terrible here, and I have to say that if companies are going to make less than revolutionary games, they might as well include a bunch of busty babes for us to gawk at sometime during the action. Girls, I don't exactly know what you want, maybe the boys from N'Sync showing off their bods, but substitute accordingly depending on sexual preference. I like to think of myself as someone who approaches all games fairly and with a healthy sense of skepticism, so believe me when I say this one doesn't suck and that it might even be worth spending the money on if nothing else worth ten dollars is available. Or, if you like looking at grainy FMV of scantily clad Hooters girls. After all, ten dollars probably won't even buy you a lunch at Hooters... :)
Hooters Road Trip is a pretty good arcade style single player racer. Overall the game is pretty simple once you get your cars set up. It's just good ol' straight up racing with the added bonus of the beautiful Hooters girls displayed throughout the game. Are these girls added to help sell the game? Probably, but the combination of racing game and the girls is a good one. (and to address any fears that the Mom's and Dad's might have about their kids playing this game, there is NO nudity in this game, all the girls are displayed tastefully, and fully clothed, in swim suit or Hooters uniform). While Ovaldog can't give this game two thumbs up due to the arcade nature of the game, I will give it one thumbs up as a FUN game to play with some really beautiful scenery (wink wink).
Hooters Road Trip is a mindless driving game with a host of repetitious features. While graphically average, the game retreads the same ground over and over. But taking an otherwise average race game, and trying to spice it up with sexist images is demeaning and silly. Even the game states that it is tacky, yet unrefined. That about sums it up.
So if all this sounds like your cup of tea then by all means, make haste to your favorite game store and do pick up Hooters Road Trip. If, on the other hand, you prefer fun games then you'll definitely want to blow your money on something more worthwhile, like a root canal.

This game would insult my intelligence....if I had any...had any left after playing this game that is. It's pandering the lowest common denominator and unfortunately, that means me and you. Don't give 'em the satisfaction.

If there is something positive to say about the game, it is that it allows you to play your own CDs while racing. The CD music is conveniently controlled with the numeric keypad and has the added bonus of freeing you from the game's annoying soundtrack. Between the grating guitars and the motor scooter car sounds, you'll be happy to listen to some of your own music instead.
PlayStationThe Video Game Critic
Does seeing a video of four Hooters girls jumping around in bikinis make the marginal gameplay worthwhile? Well, if you're a guy the answer is probably yes. But be forewarned: You will not be playing this game for fun!
The Hooters chain of themed restaurants describes itself as "delightfully tacky, yet unrefined," but as far as this game is concerned, a heaping dose of refinement is sorely needed. The very brief FMV sequences can be quite hilarious to those with odd senses of humor, but sadly you have to sit through several minutes of poor racing to watch them. Hooters: Road Trip unfortunately proves that, as the adage goes, you get what you pay for.

Dynamic four-way traffic and high-speed collisions aside, Road Trip is not a good arcade driving game. Nor is it a satisfying peep show. In the end, racers and leering perverts alike will be very disappointed.
PlayStationGame Informer Magazine
Even if you manage to succeed, you still lose; your reward is the embarrassment of watching clips of vapid Hooters bombshells trying to grasp the concept of "language" as they struggle to string together sentences with vague sexual overtones. Hot. Just like sitting down for a meal at Hooters, Road Trip has ample cleavage mixed with shame, but there are no buffalo wings here, and that makes all the difference.
Let's put it this way. Don't buy this game unless you're trying to get yourself into some sort of world book of records, and even then, it's not recommended.
In a nutshell: even at objectifying women and relying solely on their wafting sex appeal to excel, Road Trip fails miserably. Because of that, the game must rely on play to justify its existence. Too bad it can't even begin to compete with titles from nearly a decade ago.
If you have $10 lying around and want some Hooters memorabilia then get a Hooters calendar or a T-Shirt or just give the cash to the waitress for a tip. The smile you get in return will be more enjoyable than this title.
Hooters Road Trip is an embarrassing journey down a road that is thankfully less traveled. It is embarrassing for the dozen Hooters "employees" appearing in the game, who are clearly uncomfortable delivering lines such as "Ooweee, you finished first!" and "Hey there, welcome to Jacksonville!" It is embarrassing to anyone who buys it for the "hoot" in Hooters because they'll find nothing but a disjointed assortment of poorly produced five-second clips and no nudity. And it is embarrassing for the developer, because the game surely didn't turn out as envisioned.
