If you're a Disney fan, you have to have this game. If you're a fan of Mario Kart or Diddy Kong Racing and wouldn't mind seeing some new courses and challenges, you could do worse. And if you're too cool for this stuff, hey, grow up and get over it, because you're missing out on a terrific game--not to mention the chance to get as close as you're likely to get to the secret worlds of Disney.

Die Entwickler von Rare beweisen aufs Neue, dass sie ihr Handwerk verstehen. Viele, bis ins Detail ausgearbeitete Strecken, die euch mit jeder Menge Abkürzungen für Wochen auf Entdeckungstour schicken, pfiffige Gegner und ein zusätzlicher Mehrspieler-Battle-Modus – was wollt ihr mehr? Na ja, sicher hätten ein paar Innovationen nicht geschadet, denn sämtliche Aspekte in Mickey's Speedway USA sind bereits schon in anderen Spielen aufgetaucht. Dafür erhaltet ihr einen umfangreichen Fun-Racer mit perfekter Steuerung und wunderschönen Kursen: Zugreifen!

Aber wir wissen ja alle was Rare normalerweise aus dem N64 herausholt. Da geht man vielleicht mit einer größeren Erwartungshaltung ran. Der Speed ist in den höheren Klassen gelungen und bringt eine schnelle und saubere Framerate auf den Asphalt. Ein bißchen mehr bei der Gegner KI und den Items hätte dem Spiel eine höhere Wertung verpaßt. Mangels Konkurrenz ist der Titel aber auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert. Wer aber einen MK oder DKR Nachfolger erwartet der besser ist findet ihn mit Mickey's Speedway USA nicht.

Don't be fooled by its cuddly exterior. With 20 tracks, four battle arenas, and a plenitude of hidden characters and cheats to unlock, Mickey's Speedway USA has enough substance to keep even the most dedicated kart racing fanatics coming back for more. While young ones will find later circuits far too difficult, those who can get past the colorful exterior will find a deep racer full of things done well, but often done better in other games. While not a genre buster, Mickey's Speedway USA is one tough nut in a colorful wrapper.

Slutomdömet är ändå att Mickey's Speedway USA är den mest välgjorda Mario Kart-klonen hittills. Personligen tycker jag att Disney-temat känns lite småtråkigt och att Diddy Kong Racing var mer intressant när det kom, men jag förstår dem som är av en annan åsikt.

Rare s'en tire plutôt honorablement avec ce titre très bien réalisé mais totalement dénué d'originalité. Mickey's Speedway USA déçoit légèrement par rapport à un titre comme DKR du même éditeur et aurait certainement récolté une note supérieure s'il était sorti quelques années plus tôt. Les fans irraisonnés de Mario Kart pourraient toutefois trouver leur bonheur dans cette cartouche conçue dans le même moule que le titre de Nintendo.

The carts are very easy to maneuver and it actually feels better than Diddy Kong Racing in that regard. The problem comes back to the level and vehicle design. I thoroughly enjoyed taking to the air and water now and then in DKR, and I also liked the adventure mode. Mickey's Speedway lacks that and it ends up being another game where the license does all the talking while the gameplay does very little walking. Rare is an ultra-talented company, and perhaps we expect to much of them sometimes. Is Mickey's Speedway better than Penny Racers or South Park Rally? You bet. But I feel it's not even up to par with Diddy Kong Racing, which was made three years ago by the same company. Such is the reason I'm not as thrilled with this piece of software as I wanted to be. I eagerly await a sequel to Diddy Kong Racing, or at least one done in its style. Rare: I hope to see you then.

You can probably already tell there’s a lot about Mickey’s Speedway USA that remains curious, but even though there’s the feeling Rare was mostly plain sailing on this title, it says a lot about the studio's ability that it could still produce a game of this quality. It undoubtedly lacks the variety and imagination of Diddy Kong Racing, or the character and track design of Mario Kart 64, but technically it shines, demonstrating glimpses of what was still possible at this point with the N64. By that alone it probably deserves a second look.

Game Informer Magazine
I can see tykes flocking to it because Mickey Mouse is on the cover, but after witnessing the simplistic gameplay, hardcore gamers will avoid it like the plague. All of the tracks are blasé constructs that lack animation and terrain differentials. The only feature that really caught my eye was the character animation. Of course, seeing how Goofy’s ears flap in the wind doesn’t justify a purchase. Nintendo targeted youngsters with this one, and completely turned its shoulder on the core audience. Basically, if you’re reading this review, then you’re too old for this title.

Mickey's Speedway USA est un bon jeu de course inspiré de Mario Kart 64 bénéficiant de l'apport des stars de Disney que sont Mickey, Donald, Dingo et les autres. Les graphismes sont très bons pour la Nintendo 64 et la jouabilité est simple et efficace. Avec beaucoup de modes solo et la possibilité de jouer à 4 simultanément, la durée de vie est également au rendez-vous. Un titre qui devrait donc satisfaire les plus jeunes et amuser quelque peu les plus grands.

Als je wilt karten op de N64 koop dan Diddy Kong Racing en laat deze zooi lekker in de winkel liggen.

Mickey's Speedway USA is a kart racer for the young-uns. It's just a bit lacking compared to the elder Mario Kart. Kids will enjoy the easy to master controls and Disney characters, but there isn't enough meat for the older, discerning gamer. However, Mickey's Speedway USA makes for a much better present for junior compared to that 'other' mouse (or whatever it is) in Hey You, Pikachu.
