The 32X version is a little smoother and more detailed, but Sega CD version has CD music, so pick your poison. Any way you look at it, BC Racers is a game which showcases the power of Sega CD and the prowess of Core. Now, how about an uber-version!!?
Player One
BC Racers s'installe avec brio sur Mega CD ; c'est beau, jouable et surtout désopilant ! Ne le manquez sous aucun prétexte.
GameFan Magazine
Sega CD owners get yet another great Core game. BC Racers main attraction is it's great scaling, but that is not where the fun stops. BC has a great cast of characters (including some pre-historic beauties), cool bongo music and it's just plain fun to play. Hook up a second pad and one guy can drive while the other does the mashin'. And, three viewpoints are available on the fly! It's VR Chuck!

The control is just alright, though. And the levels aren't really that interesting. Neither is bad enough to bring it score down, but I certainly wished the levels were slightly more interesting to look at. Though a 3DO version was released, it didn't improve on the game at all, and I still am demanding a proper sequel to this game! But regardless, the game is a lot of fun, and worth having in your collection. It was before Mario Kart, but not even in the same category. Well worth taking a look, even if you have to buy it.

Auch bei BC Racer verwendet Core Design das gleiche, geniale Grafiksystem wie schon bei Thunderhawk, Soulstar und Battlecorps. Das Resultat kann sich wie immer sehen lassen: Schnelle und fließend scrollende 3D-Grafik sowie schöne detaillierte Hintergründe zeigen, was das Mega-CD kann. Die Musik besteht fast nur aus dumpfen Getrommel, das jedoch gut zum Spiel paßt. Leider wird die Raserei mit der Zeit etwas langweilig, denn außer der grafischen Gestaltung der Rennstrecken ändert sich nichts. Es gibt keine Extras oder Zusatzwaffen einzusammeln, und bis auf ein paar Sprungschanzen bieten auch die acht Kurse wenig Abwechslung. Mit einigen Features mehr und vielleicht einem Battle-Mode hätte aus BC Racer ein Classic werden können.

Adding a split-screen two-player race - or even a time trial mode - would have enhanced the game's replay value greatly; unfortunately, there just isn't enough here to justify the full-on Sega CD treatment. OK, it does have a colorful cartoon intro sequence, but I would much rather have had more action-packed gameplay.

While it probably isn't for sophisticated gamers, BC Racers still has plenty of youth appeal. Until they're ready for Road Rash, novices can get good mileage from these cave clowns.
The Sega CD's scaling capabilities are quite impressive, but are nothing to lose your precious bodily fluids over. With a two-player mode, a handful more options or a few more tracks, this could've been a keeper; but in its present state, you'll play B.C. Racers once or twice and forget it in a couple of days.
Ce jeu, plutôt atypique souffre de ses défauts et risque de détourner un grand nombre de joueurs. Cependant il est le seul représentant du genre sur Mega-CD et n'a pas à souffrir de la concurrence.
