"Unfairly overshadowed by its high-profile counterparts, Rocket: Robot on Wheels is one of the best 3D platformers available for the N64. Physics-based gameplay and a futuristic theme park setting provide the basis for seven different game worlds, each filled to the brim with challenging platforming segments and hugely inventive puzzles -- the latter of which outshine even Nintendo and Rare?s finest efforts in some instances."

"One of the N64's stranger titles - Robot: Rocket on wheels strives with its innovative physics engine and ingenious puzzles. Some camera issues prevent it from being a truly great game but as platformers go it was one of the best of its era. The quirky music, original level design and addictive challenge combine to create a bizarre yet engrossing experience. Very odd but brilliant."
"Rocket Robot on Wheels probably should have sold more. Packed with bizarre characters and lots of imagination there’s certainly plenty to do. Yet somehow, it all gets a bit tedious. Maybe because, by the time I’d played it, Mario, Banjo, and DK had already been there and done that, it didn’t feel special. Even its fun physics engine doesn’t really make it stand out."
"I never finished this game but I rented it back in the day. I remember it being very cool and very fun to play. I loved the amusement park theme to it. I definitely plan on picking it up to play it again - this time to completion. One of the more innovative and well-made 3D platformers of its time. We need a sequel IMO."
"Rocket: Robot on Wheels is one of the most underrated games on the Nintendo 64. Its pure platforming goodness was strengthened by a rememberable protagonist, large open worlds, immense gameplay, and one heck of a challenge at times. Easily one of the best platformers of the Nintendo 64's later life - and, indeed, its life as a whole - and an easy recommendation for platforming lovers."
