Description

Adrenalin: Extreme Show is an action-oriented racing game with a catch: all twelve selectable drivers are female. But because we are talking about a video game here all of them have jobs like "porn star", "party bitch" or "pole dancer". So the main reason why there are no male drivers is because the most potential buyers don't want to see almost-naked men in their menu screens.

With that issue out of the way we can now concentrate on the game itself. As usual the player wants to become the number one during the career mode. When he wins races he receives prize money which he reinvests in his car. In the tuning garage he can buy special maneuvers, e.g. a turbo boost, or just better parts like a new engine. Before every championship he makes a contract with a sponsor which grants him extra money when reaching a certain goal, e.g. winning all races.

The race winner is not inevitably the one who crosses the finishing line first. The game rewards drivers with points when accomplishing good performances, e.g. sliding, perfect turns or leading the race for a certain time. On the other hand there are also negative points for actions like getting overtaken or crashing into something. The driver with the most points wins the race. During the career mode he unlocks more courses and playing modes, e.g. duels where he needs to crash the other cars, long jumping or speed races where the drivers need to maintain a certain speed. Overall there are eight cars and 15 courses.
