Power Unlimited (Mar, 1999)
Rollcage zal nog wel een tijdje in mijn PlayStation blijven zitten want ik ben er na een week spelen nog lang niet op uitgekeken. Dat is mede te danken aan die multiplayer splitscreen mode die net zo snel is als de 1 speler mode (!) en natuurlijk die vette soundtrack en de... Nou ja, ga het zelf maar checken.
Rollcage is a fairly honest game, which is possibly why I find it so appealing. It doesn't pretend to be a Gran Turismo clone or a Ridge Racer beater. It's basically an Arcade Rollercoaster ride that will leave you breathless for a moderate period of time. Psygnosis have thankfully returned to what they do best... breakneck speed futuristic arcade racers. WHOOPEEE!!!

Overall, the worst thing about Rollcage is that it's only two player, which is hardly a complaint given that most PlayStation games are one- to two-player. But wouldn't it be great if...Oh well...Not to be forgotten, the single-player mode is fantastic, but it's the two-player mode that'll have you jumping around like a nerd on coke and pop-rocks. It's an instant immersion into adrenal levels of ferocious competition. If you haven't already figured it out, Rollcage is a highly intoxicating battle racer that anybody in his or her right mind should own.
Rollcage takes a while to get to grips with, that’s something you’ll Just have to accept. I mean, how many times have you raced a pal with your vehicles roof-to-roof rather than bumper to bumper? But the old Psygnosis quality is definitely lurking around within, and as usual, they’ve bundled together a collection of aural finery to tantalise your ears as you race. Of course, only the coolest artistes have made it on the game, so don’t be surprised to hear the likes of Fatboy Slim soothing your frazzled brain as you get to grips with these tricky terrains. Rollcage is either going to hook you immediately with the pull of a dozen tug-o-war teams, or send you packing with the promptness of a twin-bearing bride-to-be. We think it’s well worth checking out... but could somebody pass me the Alka-Seltzers please!?
Mega Fun (Feb, 1999)
Rolltage begeistert durch seinen enormen Funfaktor. Durch das innovative Streckendesign, das euch à la Men in Black über Tunnelwände und -decken führt, wird man nicht nur überrascht, sondern vielmehr zu halsbrecherischen Stunts verleitet. Denn nicht selten locken Speed-ups oder Extra-Waffen. Einziges Manko, das ich entdecken konnte, ist dass das Game etwas zu schnell durchzuspielen ist. Aber für Zocker, die besonders gerne mit Freunden spielen, ist auch dies kein Hindernis. Auch wenn die virtuellen Konkurrenten alle hinter einem liegen, für einen Fight unter Freunden ist es jederzeit gut.
Annars finns det nästan bara positiva saker att säga om det här spelet. Vi vet redan att svängig dansmusik gör sig alldeles utmärkt i dessa sammanhang och vid det här laget finns det nästan inget racingspel som saknar flyt. Och trots att ljuseffekter som blixtrar och elektriskt blå elstrålar inte är några nyheter bidrar de till inramningen. Dessutom går det imponerande snabbt även när man spelar två personer samtidigt, med delad skärm. Men som alla vet är det spelkontrollen som gör ett racingspel. Och den hade kunnat vara bättre.

Rollcage is an overall good game with the gameplay being the absolute best part. The speed, and the ability to race upside down or anywhere for that matter makes the game original and fun, which is incredibly rare among racing games in today's et. The soundtrack was really good, and the graphics were even better. Not only is the game fun, but it is addicting as well, providing for hours of racing fun.

Als ernsthaftes Rennspiel darf man Rollcage also nicht ansehen - wer jedoch auf ein technisch perfektes Pyrotechnik-Spektakel, eingebettet in eine Racing-Umgebung, steht, sollte sich diesen neuen Psygnosis-Titel auf jeden Fall genauer anschauen. Ich hatte zumindest selten so einen Spaß mit einem Waffen-Racer - das Gewinnen ist hier irgendwie gar nicht so wichtig!
The Video Game Critic (Apr 09, 2016)
One thing I love about Rollcage is its brisk pacing. The menu's are a breeze to navigate, the load times are short, and even the race countdown is brief. a challenging league mode lets you unlock features and the two-player split-screen mode is exciting. Rollcage is a lot of fun to play and frankly I wonder how I missed out on it the first time around.

Rollcage est un jeu très jouable, qui bénéficie d'une bonne réalisation technique et compte quelques atouts qui font de lui un bon jeu de course, même si la concurrence est de plus en plus rude dans ce domaine sur Playstation.
Game Revolution (Apr, 1999)
Perhaps in the future we will drive crazy vehicles like these. Maybe we'll also live in high rise space needles like the Jetson's, filled with exotic alien women, and be playing the Playstation 3000. Hell, who knows what the future may bring... but Psygnosis' future will be set and secured if it can only keep its credibility up by sticking to quality games like Rollcage. Just please... please leave the racial groin kicking out.

In the end, if it weren't for all the catchy spots in this game, Rollcage would rank up around the original Extreme G, if not near Wipeout XL. Take my advice and buy the soundtrack, rent Rollcage, go home, cross your fingers, and hope that the upcoming Wipeout 3 will become the new reigning king of futuristic racing games.
Rollcage isn’t a terrible game, it’s fast-paced, high-octane racing is both fun and therapeutic. But with such an overpopulated genre, the game really needs something spectacular to shine through the crowd. Unfortunately, Rollcage is just too much of the same thing to emerge as a replacement for the host of sci-fi racers already occupying your shelf space.
