Consoles Plus (May, 1999)
Le jeu semble assez fun, la réalisation technique soignée et les courses ne manquent ni de rapidité ni de rebondissements. Si vous aimez le style, lancez-vous.
If I had to put all of the "kart" games into perspective, I would probably say that Bomberman Fantasy Race falls behind both Mario Kart and Rockman Battle and Chase. However, Bomberman Fantasy Race is still quite a good time, and should absolutely not be overlooked due to its few ugly points. It might lack a bit in the graphics and control departments, but it makes up for them with great ideas like the triangle jump and the dash, as well as with the bomb-throwing mayhem that comes with the Bomberman name. If you like cute racing games and want a good time for one or two players, Bomberman Fantasy Race will probably suit you. Best of all, it has been picked up by Atlus for a US release. I'm very glad to see that someone actually notices cool import releases like this one, and brings them over to the US for everyone else to try out. I wouldn't reccomend importing this one unless you're a die-hard Bomberman fan - wait for Atlus' english release in November.
Om Hudson hade lagt ned lite mer tid på att försöka kombinera racinggenren med bombardemanget på ett lite mer sublimt sätt hade det här kunnat smälla högt. Men de brände sin chans.

Although it lacks a speedy adrenaline rush, and it doesn't push technical limits to the top, Bomberman Fantasy Race is a good time. No, you don't get to butcher monkies with a red-hot poker, and you certainly don't get to hit Leonardo DiCaprio in the neck with a foldable chair, but you'll enjoy the game nonetheless. And why not? Hell, it's Bomberman we're talking about after all! Bomberman's games is fun, nuff said.
Power Unlimited (Oct, 1999)
Erg enthousiast ben ik niet over dit spel. De graphics zijn niet geweldig en zonder het bommengeweld is dit maar een tweederangs racegame. Het meest positieve dat ik over dit spel kan zeggen, is dat ik telken van Ed kon winnen, en dat is me bij geen enkel ander racespel gelukt.
GameSpot (Apr 27, 1999)
The undeniable urge to race has struck many a platform- and puzzle-game hero. It hit Mega Man in the Japanese release Rockman: Battle & Chase and Square's cutesy-cutesy Chocobo in Chocobo Racing. It's even happened to Mario twice now. Since Bomberman has long been known to play with fire and explosives, it was really just a matter of time before he added the track to his long list of vices.
Joypad (Oct, 1998)
Produit léger et vite programmé, il ne présente pas de défauts majeurs mais souffre d'un manque de profondeur certain. Rigolo une après-midi pour deux joueurs, quelques jours seuls... mais pas de quoi l'acheter neuf au prix fort, quoi...
Video Games (Aug, 1999)
Oh Mann - diese vermaledeiten Viecher steuern sich wie ein Rudel störrische Esel - Krämpfe in den Fingern durch dauerndes Drücken von X und D-Pad-Up für Beschleunigung inklusive. Schon mal davon gehört daß mittlerweile Analogsteuerung und Rennspiel quasi verheiratet sind, Hudson? Auch sonst deutet von den Spielfiguren (fünf oder sechs Polygone?) über die Strecken (welch liebliche Tunnelaussicht durch die Clipping-Wand) und die Musik (einmal Randomtaste auf dem Synthie gedrückt) alles auf ein ohne Liebe dahingeschustertes Machwerk hin, das zudem schnell durchgespielt ist. Laßt es einfach links liegen.
PlanetStation (Sep, 1999)
Bueno, al menos este Fantasy Race cuenta con el carismático Bomberman como protagonista, tiene una secuencia de video la mar de simpática y el modo jugadores da algo de vidilla al pobre conjunto que es el juego en sí (siempre resulta divertido dejar en la cuneta a tu compañero a base de bombas y bombas lanzadas sin piedad). A pesar de todo, siempre será peor el mini-juego de carreras de Kensei.
(...) It's appalling - the graphics prove that the game was knocked together with no thought, everything slices and bounces all over the place so much it's hard to race properly, and it all feels completely pointless. No fun? No reason to play it then.
Random Access (Mar 20, 2013)
So basically, you just paid for a game with one stinking track, one Looie and one Tierra, plus no chance of ever winning! Thank God I don’t believe in getting angry over stupid things or else I would be poop-my-pants enraged right now. If you are the kind of person who enjoys having your eyes jabbed with a hot poker, then this is the game for you.
NowGamer (Jul 01, 2000)
The most annoying bit is the racing control system. For some reason the programmers thought it would be fun to make players repeatedly (or intermittently) press forward on the D-Pad or Dual Shock pad to speed up. It isn’t. At all. You’re so busy trying to persuade your ungainly ride to go in the right direction that often you forget to use the speed up button at all. Fantasy Race does include a split-screen option and a pretty neat wagering system, but there really is nothing that even vaguely stimulate the senses; there’s more excitement in a morgue. Come back RunningWild, all is forgiven.
Mega Fun (Aug, 1999)
Sorry Hudson, aber Fantasy Race löst bei mir das gleiche Gefühl aus wie ein Sylvester-Knaller, der nicht explodiert. Mal ganz abgesehen von der schwachen technischen Umsetzung (kantige Spielfiguren, Lens-Flare-Effekte, die diesen Namen nicht verdienen, nervige Sounduntermalung), setzt BFS auch in spielerischer Hinsicht wenig Akzente. Der kleine Streckenumfang wirkt sich vielleicht nur beim Einspieler-Modus aus, die schwammige Steuerung der Reittiere und ein stellenweise unüberlegtes Streckendesign minimieren hingegen auch den Mehrspieler-Spaß.
