Reception[edit | edit source]
Speed Devils received fairly average reviews. Game Revolution wrote a review saying, "At the finish line, Speed Devils is an above average racer, but not much more." The reviewer said the game had good graphics and cool cars, but suffered from poorly made tracks that leave the player wondering how they managed to drive off a cliff without noticing the cliff in front of them. The article also criticized the games two player mode for being boring and drawn out.
