Kein Zweifel: Rock'n'Roll-Racing ist eins der genialsten Rennspiele überhaupt fürs SNES. Es ist technisch nahezu perfekt prall gefüllt mit tollen Ideen und feinster Action und wird Euch garantiert nicht mehr loslassen. Wem Rock'n Roll Racing nicht gefällt, dem ist nicht mehr zu helfen!

Ondanks alle hi-tech wapens blijft Rock 'n' Roll Racing in de eerste plaats een racing game die het uiterste van je stuurmanskunsten vraagt. De controls zijn uitstekend en dat is in een spel als dit natuurlijk van levensbelang.
Rock & Roll Racing was one of the best games ever released in the 16-bit era for the SNES (and later the Genesis). One can't help but to think that it inspired and paved the way for games such as Wipeout and Extreme G. It exhibited tight control, excellent graphics and an unprecedented soundtrack. This game was simple in concept and flawless in execution.
Games Master
Rock 'n' Roll Racing is great. Don't think it's being marketed solely on the gimmick of having great classic rock tracks. Not at all. In fact, it's a superb game with the music as a bonus. Buy it.
Rock'n Roll Racing ist ein sehr gutes Game, dass sich auf keinen Fall hinter F-Zero oder Mario Kart verstecken muss. Es macht auch heute in der Zeit der modernen 3D-Racer noch wahnsinnig Spaß, obwohl es ausschließlich in 2D gehalten ist.

You remember the ace RC Pro Am games for the NES? You do... Well imagine RC Pro Am with better graphics with famous rock music hits like Born to be Wild in the background. Now add some cool vehicles equipped with lasers, missiles, bombs and nitros that´s racing on a deserted desert planet fro life and death and you´ve got Rock 'n Roll Racing in a nutshell!
Nintendo Life
It goes without saying that if you're a fan of the NES classic RC Pro Am, you're going to absolutely love the racing action in Rock & Roll Racing. Not only is the core gameplay idea still intact, but the unique hard rock soundtrack and impressive race announcing breathe new life into the game and make it truly stand out from the other racing titles available for the Super Nintendo system. If you're a fan of the isometric racing genre, you owe it to yourself to see why so many racing game fans hold this game in such high regard. It's not only one of the more enjoyable racing titles to come out of the 16-bit era, it's also one of the more unique as well.
High Score
Rock 'n Roll Racing är ett kanonspel. Det är roligt att spela själv och helt sanslöst kul att spela mot en kompis. Bara ljudet i sig är en upplevelse. Bra rocklåtar som ger den riktigt aggresiva stämningen och en kommentator som retas med en när man ligger sist. Det enda som stör mig är att banorna känns lite mesiga efter ett tag. En femma blev det inte men Rock 'n Roll Racing är helt klart värt pengarna.

It has the potential to be superb, but the track boundaries almost ruin it. With a bit more freedom to roam with your mean machine, this could have challenged Micro Machines.
Du vroum vroum à tout va, des missiles qui volent dans tous les sens, des mines posées stratégiquement pour faire exploser vos ennemis, le tout saupoudré d'une bande-son très rock. Rock'n Roll Racing a tous les ingrédients qu'il faut pour passer un excellent moment. Et à deux en écran splitté c'est encore mieux !
