WTMG's Leo Faria: "Pacer is not something that’s going to reinvent the wheel, but it’s a fine addition to an otherwise criminally overlooked subgenre. It’s a game with a lengthy career mode, wacky courses, a brutal difficulty curve, and a smooth performance; pretty much everything you’d want in a futuristic racer like this. Is it better than F-Zero or Wipeout? No, nor it was intended to be. Is it a great alternative to PS4 and Xbox owners who don’t have access to Fast RMX? Absofreakinglutely. This one will most certainly satiate any futuristic racing fan’s hunger for a while."
