Gameplay is very basic - just race up the screen as quickly as possible, dodging bombs and other vehicles, occasionally managing to fire a shot back. It seems CodeMasters have been playing Ocean's Run The Gauntlet
as Nitro Boost is similar to the races of that multi-event product except on a straight course and with no direct opposition. Without these, Nitro Boost is a pointless challenge, so stuntmen are
advised to purchase Ocean's game.
