In a rare instance of a sequel improving on nearly every aspect of the original game, Rush 2049 stands out as an exceptional example of a solid franchise being raised a notch, and what a notch it is! Improved graphics, lighting, textures, sound, menus, cars, options and multiplayer modes make this more than just a sequel. In fact, the thrill-packed stunt mode alone is worth the cost of admission. Never has a Rush game looked or felt so good on the N64, and with all it has going for it, you'd be silly not to rush to the store for this one. A must-own for fans of high-flying action and unbelievable stunts.

Even though Gran Turismo 3 may be the most in depth racer on the market, San Francisco Rush 2049 is by far the most addictive. Without a doubt San Francisco Rush 2049 not only redefines arcade racing games, but it rewrites the books on what you can and cannot do. This Dreamcast port brings everything you loved about the arcade game, and gives you so much more.

Really good racing game and very fun, go out and buy it if you want a good time. If you buy one racing game this year, buy Test Drive: Le Mans. But if you buy two, buy San Francisco Rush 2049, its one helluva game!

Rush games have always offered a huge amount of replay value, and this title is no exception. There are tons of things to unlock such as cars, tracks and parts to customize your car. The stunt mode is extremely addictive, and the multi player battles are intense, even exploring the levels and finding all the shortcuts and coins could take hours at a time. This will easily keep you playing for a long time.

Overall, this is a beautiful game that is also a blast to play. Forget the serious stuff. San Francisco Rush 2049 brings the fun back to arcade gaming.

Problems aside, the Dreamcast version is hands-down the best version available - even killing the arcade version in looks, playability, and sheer lasting play. Every mode in this game is also in four-player splitscreen mode - and not a bit of fun is lost in the reduced screen. Don't pick up Rush 2049 because it's a racer - you'd be missing the entire point. Rush 2049 is all about vehicular action, and this game has it in spades and is done extremely well.

But if you've come to stunt or to battle then you've come to the right place because San Francisco Rush 2049 is easily the best of the series and, now, one of the most recommended titles you can buy for your Nintendo 64. Rush fanatics everywhere -- no worries here, Midway Games West has delivered.

San Francisco Rush 2049 zu beurteilen fällt mir gar nicht so leicht. Würde das Spiel nur die Möglichkeit zu normalen Rennen bieten, würde es ganz schnell eingehen. Denn eigentlich ist die Heckperspektive am besten für diesen Racer geeignet, doch wegen der Ruckelarien einfach nicht zumutbar. Wirklich schade um die eigentlich tolle Optik und um die mit versteckten Routen nur so vollgestopften Strecken. Wenn ich aber daran denke wie viele tolle Stunden ich mit diesem Titel im Multiplayer-Modus hatte, sind die Einzelerlebnisse schnell vergessen. Die spannenden Kämpfe und das gemeinsame Sammeln von Münzen in der Stunt-Arena motivieren einfach endlos, da dort die nicht ganz optimale Steuerung überhaupt nicht stört. Trotzdem hätte man noch so viel mehr aus dem Spiel machen können.

San Francisco Rush was an absurdly fun racing/stunt title when it was released a few years back, and instead of falling into the trap of rehashing with a few new cars and tracks each year, Midway and, Atari Games have been able to renovate their series to get with the times. San Francisco Rush 2049 is easily the best installment yet with slick and fast visuals, an awsome multiplayer mode and an enormous amount of modes, tracks and secrets to explore. You'll be playing this one for a while to come.

At first glance, this game would seem to be no different from any of the other countless generic franchises and tired sequels cluttering up store shelves today; something to keep little Billy entertained for a few hours, and not much else. However, those who automatically lump San Francisco Rush 2049 into this category will find themselves missing out on a surprisingly addictive little arcade racer whose lifespan actually manages to exceed that of your average mayfly. Though it's not "3-games-in-1" by any stretch of the imagination, Rush's vastly different modes and insane sense of speed offer a little something for everyone, no matter what type of gamer you may be. Whether you're looking for a change of pace from lengthy RPG's, or just enjoy playing video games with friends, San Francisco Rush definitely warrants a closer look. Just don't expect the thrills to be, you know, stimulating or anything.

This is racing the way I like it - pure arcade action! Forget realism, I want simple controls, fantastic tracks, and gravity-defying gameplay. Rush 2049 delivers all of that and more. It's the kind of racer you can just turn on and have fun immediately. The futuristic graphics allow for wild road designs full of shortcuts and ramps, but I wasn't as impressed with the graphics as much as I thought I'd be.

It need not be repeated that Rush 2049 is quite an arcade racer. With a multitude of elements that let it transcend that narrow and often underrated genre, racing fans and those simply seeking a wild, entertaining experience would do well to check it out.

This is easily the best home version of the series so far on any console. Rock solid gameplay coupled with some amazing graphics make this one of the better second generation Dreamcast games so far. Definitely one to pick up ASAP unless you have no interest in racing games whatsoever.

Le jeu est assez frustrant, car il oblige à jouer impérativement avec les bonus dispatchés un peu partout sur la course. Faire l'impasse sur ces gadgets difformes et monoblocs vous ôte toute chance de victoire, car il est impossible de s'imposer à la seule force de ses talents de pilote. Voilà qui rend le jeu assez répétitif ! Mais de toute façon, Micromachines V3 effacera bien vite cette suite peu alléchante.

Spelet är riktigt kort, vilket med de liknande banorna i åtanke kanske är tur. Det kan bli svårt ibland, men aldrig balanseras det faktumet med att endast nio banor och två spelsätt finns att välja mellan. Att man heller inte kan spela två förvärrar läget. Nej, vill man ha ett spel som räcker längre än ett par timmar bör man helt klart välja något annat än San Francisco Rush 2049.

Despite carrying its name, the game does not live up to the Rush 2049 label, and aside from that, doesn't even live up to being much of a decent game at all. If you're really hungry for another racing title on the Game Boy Color, you might want to give it a shot, but you'll find better options out there, even on the portable level.

Ultimately, the GBC release of San Francisco Rush 2049 is Rush in name only. Some slack must be given for the graphical alterations required to bring the title across, but no amount of lowered expectations explains away the rest. The game doesn't play like Rush, it doesn't sound like Rush, and most importantly, it doesn't feel like Rush. People seeking a good top-down handheld racer should pick up Micro Machines instead. Those seeking a good handheld version of Rush should simply save their pennies.

Une version de Rush 2049 qui n'en possède que le nom. Cette adaptation Gameboy fait vraiment du tort à la série en proposant un jeu de course bien médiocre.

San Francisco Rush 2049 est un jeu de course en 3D isométrique à la Rock & Roll Racing. Le mode principal est une suite de courses où il faudra arriver bien placé pour débloquer le circuit suivant. Un mode Time Attack est également disponible. Les voitures sont peu nombreuses : cinq seulement. Il aurait été intéressant de signaler leurs faiblesses et leurs points forts lors du menu de sélection. Les courses se ressemblent toutes et la lenteur de l’action ajoute à la monotonie ambiante.

Graphismes antédiluviens, ambiance sonore minable (et buggée), maniabilité pourrie, jeu vide d'intérêt, je ne m'étalerai pas plus sur les nombreuses qualités de San Francisco Rush 2049, à vous maintenant de ne pas l'acheter.
