Consoles Plus (Dec, 1997)
Air Race part d'une idée originale : des courses d'avions. Un bon jeu mais sans combat !
Mega Fun (Apr, 1998)
Air Race ist nicht nur ein innovatives Rennspiel, sondern auch qualitativ durchaus überzeugend. Hat man sich erst einmal mit der trägen Steuerung vertraut gemacht, macht es Laune, sich mit geschickten Manövern durch Felsspalten oder Hochhäuserfronten zu bugsieren. zumal die farbenprächtigen Polygon-Szenarios sehr ansehnlich sind. Für den Platz an der Sonne reicht es aber letztendlich nicht. Erstens fehlt dem Solisten die nötige Motivation, sich öfters ins virtuelle Cockpit zu setzen, da es keinerlei Extra-Features gibt. Zweitens wäre der Steuerung eine Analog-Unterstützung sehr zugute gekommen. Dafür überzeugt der 2-Spieler-Modus rundum. Sich mit einem Freund via Split-Screen zu messen bereitet einem aufgrund der nach wie vor sauberen Grafik sehr viel Vergnügen.
GamePro (US) (Sep, 1997)
On the options side, Bravo offers solo, head-to-head, or time-trial modes only with 10 planes and race locales that range from desert canyons to snowy summits. The graphics and controls are adequate, but recurring breakup hampers the realism and effectiveness of the flying. Bravo Air Race is fast-moving racing fun worth at least a full-fare rental.

But after a few hours play you realise that there’s not quite enough to it to keep you coming back for more. The most memorable car games, such as Rage Racer and Formula 1 ’97 keep you coming back again and again because they make you feel more involved with the environment. Perhaps it’s the fact that you’re on solid ground and can feel the cars squealing around a corner, but the underlying feeling you’ll get from playing this is one of boredom, especially when you realise there are only four tracks in total.
Joypad (Oct, 1997)
Original dans son concept, généreux quant au nombre de "circuits" et d'avions, Reciproheat souffre d'une réalisation un peu juste. L'animation bien que rapide saccade lorsque l'écran est surchargé de textures, les graphismes restent dans l'ensemble assez grossiers, le clipping est vraiment mal géré et le mode multijoueur (en écran splitté) ne permet de s'affronter que sur un seul et unique circuit ! Un concept intéressant qui mériterait mieux.
This could have been a great game with a little more attention devoted to increasing the replay value. The assortment of planes is nice but where are the courses? Great sense of speed, though!
GameSpot (Jan 27, 1998)
In the end, Bravo Air Race resembles THQ's old quality standard (minus a movie or television tie-in): a decent premise that results in a mediocre product. If you like flying games, Bravo Air Race is a good short-term thrill, but you're better off just saving your money.
IGN (Oct 09, 1997)
And, even if you did find yourself enjoying the game (I doubt it, but anyway) there's no circuit mode. You can only race one track at a time. Unless you fancy crashing a lot and being very frustrated, avoid Bravo Air Race.
