With the arcade like graphics, intense speed and great competition, Turbo Prop Racing may well be one of my favorite racing games in quite some time. Do yourself a favor and play it with a Dual Shock controller so you can really get the total package. I think the Fractal Generator makes the game worthy of a purchase in itself. I mean, how may other games out there give you over one million tracks? None that I can think of.
While Rapid Racer is certainly capable, inventive and has that clean Sony-produced quality to it, it doesn’t actually stand up to longer term play as well as it should. Unquestionably enjoyable in the beginning, you cannot escape the feeling eventually that once you’ve been down one raging river you’ve been down them all, although it should be noted that the terrain editor adds well over 200,000 possible levels.
In the end, Turbo Prop Racing proves to be a worthy addition to any racing game fan's library - especially if you enjoyed the Wipeout series. It's not without flaws, but its better points are good enough to keep you playing from start to finish.

Si le soft est merveilleux du point de vue technique, il demeure cependant ennuyeux et lassant à la longue, du fait de l'ambiance froide dégagée. Rapid Racer, très attendu des joueurs fanas de courses en tous genres, déçoit finalement. Il nous laisse un goût amer de sardine fraîchement péchée de la Seine, et c'est plutôt dommage.
In the end, Turbo Prop Racing is just another racing game. If you're really, really into powerboat racing, you might find Turbo Prop Racing slightly appealing. If that's the case, rent it, but it really isn't worth buying.
The Video Game Critic
The poorly designed, narrow courses are located in Miami, Utah, Canada, and even a volcano (wow - orange water!). The scenery doesn't look too bad, but the techno background music is the worst I've heard in a long time. The dual-shock vibration feature is supported, but it just feels like an annoying pager going off constantly. Why can't we have a good boat racing game on the Playstation?
