Acclaim presents us with ANOTHER of their disastrous PlayStation conversions. Yet again they have turned a great PC game into something completely average on our console. They have managed to KEEP IN the simulation aspect of the game, but somehow LEFT OUT the gameplay. This has resulted in a racer that while very clever, is just little or no fun to play.

Obwohl sich die Unterschiede wie schon bemerkt in Grenzen haltern, würde ich persönlich der PS-Version den Vorzug geben. Denn obwohl die Spielgeschwindigkeit geringer ist, läßt sich das Game auf Sonys Konsole einfach besser steuern. So kommt es wenigstens zeitweise zu spannenden Positionskämpfen und Extrawaffenduellen. Von einem Top-Titel ist Re-Volt leider immer noch weit entfernt, Haltet euch besser an das Längen bessere Micro Maschine.

Un cruelle déception pour quelqu'un qui avait beaucoup apprécié la version PC. Réalisation moyenne, musique faiblardes, Re-Volt sur PSX ne fait rien pour arranger son cas. L'aspect fun et speed disparaît complètement devant le manque de peps de l'ensemble. Tant pis.
Power Unlimited (Nov, 1999)
Alle goede eigenschappen die op de eerste twee systemen aanwezig waren, zijn op de PSX in geen velden of wegen te bekennen. De autootjes en decors zien er niet uit, er zit geen vaart in de game en ook de besturing laat regelmatig te wensen over.
Revolt is an interesting title. At first glance Re-Volt seems to be similar to previous remote control car racing titles. However, the more realistic physics engine seems to cause this title to have a cause of multiple personality disorder. The addition of a San Franciso Rush-style stunt track that doesn’t seem to jell well, with the realistic physics engine and a solid track editor adding to the confusion. Racing fans looking for more realism than arcade action, however, might want to give Re-Volt a try.

Think back to the original Wipeout, where you were slowed to a crawl whenever you touched the wall; magnify that experience by ten, and you have an idea of what Re-Volt is like. It's a shame, because all the elements are in place for a great racing game, but they end up turning against you, instead of setting up the sort of intriguing challenge you'd want.
It's a shame, too, because at an acceptable framerate this game could be a heck of a lot of fun. It also doesn't help that the graphics are depressingly first-generation looking. Grainy, pixelated textures abound, spiced with plenty of pop-up and other glitches. Acclaim, let's see this game on PS2.
Re-Volt är ett på tok för lätt spel som visar tydliga tecken på att ha lanserats för snabbt. När det hamnar i reahögen kan det vara värt att ta sig en titt på - det bjuder trots allt några timmars skoj.
Mega Fun (Oct, 1999)
Während die Nintendo-Version noch halbwegs überzeugt. dürfte es die PlayStation-Fassung schwer haben. Denn neben der schlechteren Grafik fällt auch eine ziemlich schwierigere Steuerung negativ ins Gewicht. Gut, man kann ein N64-Spiel nur bedingt mit einem PlayStation-Spiel vergleichen, aber man ist einfach Besseres auf beiden Systemen gewohnt, gerade von Acclaim.
