So far as replay value is concerned, trying to get farther in the time limit is about all there is to strive for. And this game can be a bit more frustrating than many other racing games on the Atari 2600. Still, if you're looking for a good challenging racing game on the Atari 2600, Night Driver might be worth looking into. I should make one other note. This game requires a paddle controller, so if you don't have a paddle controller, you'll need to get one before you can play this game.

The Video Game Critic
This ancient first-person driving game does a surprisingly good job of conveying the illusion of speed. Unlike the original black and white arcade game, which simply has posts along each side of the road, Atari 2600's Night Driver features oncoming cars and some roadside scenery.
