Summary

One of the first non-linear futuristic RPGs that was actually REALLY fun

The Good

You could do anything you want in this game. In order to earn more money you had to keep updating your cars or building your cars from scratch. There were arenas that you could test your car and your abilities in, as well as courier jobs that you could fulfill. Sometimes, while listening to the rumors in the truck stop you could find out that the FBI wanted you to do some jobs for them or the clone hospital in Boston wanted a heart delivered. Or you could sell your courier jobs to the fixer at the bar for the price of your prestige. The choice was yours. Top it off with long roads between cities filled with enemies that you could blow up and salvage and you have the makings of one of the most fun games ever made.

The Bad

Animation was bad, but understandable when considering the age of the game. Only the biggest cities contained the most services, but some were ridiculous, as Providence, Rhode Island contained only a truck stop and nothing else.

The Bottom Line

A primitive Privateer anchored to wheels and land.
