I played three racing games extensively on my SNES--Super Mario Kart, F-Zero and Uniracers. That's pretty good company. Maybe Uniracers is the forgotten one, the overlooked one, the never-saw-a-sequel-like-the-others-did one, but it's one of the most original games I've ever played and a great example of how much fun video games were when they didn't take themselves so seriously. There's plenty of personality in those little unicycles. I actually grew quite fond of mine. I like the green one.

It takes long time to learn all the different stunts and combinations and last but not least all the courses, so that you know where the various obstacles like clay and stuff are placed and where the free open spaces where you can safely perform your stunt are. this is the main drawback of the game because it can easily get boring to try to memmorise all the games around 20 courses but on the other hand it makes this game a real challenge with long last ability. The 2 player mode is a welcome option in Uni racer as it´s many times more fun racing against a friend than an boring and predictable computer. All in all Uni Rally is a new fresh SNES title that I recomend to racing fans that have got bored of all the F1 and Go Kart racing games and wan´t to try something new and special.

Obwohl die Räder wie bei Donkey Kong Country gerendert sind, gehört die Grafik nicht zu den eindrucksvollen Erlebnissen dieses Jahres. Aber auch ohne pompöse Farborgien kann dieses Game begeistern, da das Gameplay (Nintendo-typisch) einfach stimmt. Dazu kommt noch der mitreißende Soundtrack, der entfernt an „Rock 'n' Racing“ erinnert. Wenn Ihr Euch und Euren Kumpels einen Gefallen tun wollt holt Euch Unirally, denn da könnt Ihr wirklich nix falsch machen (is' halt von Big N).

Mega Fun
Schade, Unirally hätte ein ganz hervorragendes Spiel werden können, wenn nicht dieser letzte Feinschliff am Spieldesign, speziell bei den Stunts-Tracks fehlen würde: ihr seid manchmal dazu verdammt bei einer völlig ungeeigneten Streckenführung Höchstpunktzahlen zu erreichen, die voraussetzen, daß Ihr alle Megas im Schlaf beherrscht, also genau die Megas, von der die Anleitung selbst sagt, daß sie durch zufälliges Knöpfedrücken herausgefunden werden sollen. Besser wäre es hier sicherlich gewesen, den Computer die Anweisung zur Ausführung dieser versteckten Stunts preisgeben zu lassen, sobald man eine Liga auf Gold geschafft hat! Die Race- und die Circuit-Tracks wurden überzeugend in Szene gesetzt, die Computergegner intelligent programmiert und die Aufmachung geht, trotz akutem ACM-Mangel, voll in Ordnung. Unirally bleibt also, von den oben aufgezeigten Unzulänglichkeiten abgesehen. ein durch und durch empfehlenswertes Modul, das nicht nur Rennspielfreaks ansprechen dürfte.

All Game Guide
Uniracers is certainly not for everyone. Those who like skate boarding games will probably like it because of the tricks you can perform. Racing fans will appreciate the high speeds, and anyone looking for something a little different and nonviolent will want to at least give this game a try. The controls, once you get used to them, are smooth and efficient. The competition is fun and exciting, and the little unicycles are actually cool and enjoyable to control in a strange kind of way.

On the surface, Uniracers is a superfast, occasionally frustrating action game. Dig a little deeper, though, and you'll find that it's addictive qualities outweigh it's flaws by about a ton. Take it for a test drive; you'll be hooked.

A clever concept that's a little one-dimensional. Uniracers is the most fun you can have with one wheel on the SNES.

Uniracers has its unique charms, I suppose, and I'm sure some younger players will find it absorbing, but the whole concept seems excessively twee — which, come to think of it, is my reaction whenever I see anyone riding a unicycle.

Uniracers aurait pu être un excellent jeu Super Nintendo s'il n'était pas entouré par l'ambiance à la fois vide et cacophonique qu'ont mise en place les développeurs de DMA Design. C'est vraiment dommage pour le gameplay remarquable qu'offre le titre. Néanmoins, il est à essayer pour les amateurs de jeux de courses et de time trials, qui peuvent y trouver leur compte.

I don't know. I'm a fanatic for racing games, but Uniracers does nothing for me. Oh sure, the background visuals are good with vibrant colors and the sounds are decent, but the adrenaline rush you normally feel while playing a racing game just isn't there. The little twists and stunts you can perform help out a little, but I just found myself dozing off. Not intense by any means.
