Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Adding to your woes, the driving model is sloppy, unresponsive and frustrating, even in comparison to the weakest of arcade games. Banging bumpers is quite common, and if the confusing graphics don't throw you miles off course, progressive damage to your vehicle might do you in. Multiple viewing perspectives, courtesy of rotating cameras, hinder rather than assist. However, with a couple of trial runs on each course the whole thing gets pretty easy, and as a final blow to gameplay longevity, winning a race against computer competition becomes almost second nature. As mentioned earlier, racing against real people would improve things somewhat, but other arcade driving games such as WHIPLASH and SCREAMER also feature network play; and are infinitely better. Aside from the concept, this is one game that really can't be recommended to any age group.
