Summary

Top view racing at its best

The Good

The graphics were nothing compared to our time, but is excellent compared to it's time. The way the head lights affect textures and lighting on walls was amazing, and the cars shining in sun was also an eye catcher. The cars look very good.

Buying cars is fun, as you truly do have a sense of achievement as you get better and better cars. Each car is different from the first, and they all (excluding the first car) look great. Blasting the other cars with 2 guns is a truly great feeling (once you get to 4th car, your car gets 2 guns)

The Bad

You will find that if you are a good gamer, you can finish the game in about an hour. It's not very hard to earn money as for some reason you are always faster than other of the SAME CAR, and you can find cheap ways to get ahead of them (clinging to edges of a turn). I beat a race which had 2 Shriekers (4th car) and 1 sentinel (3rd car) while I was a vagabond (1ST CAR!!), by doing the turn clinging thing.

The Bottom Line

Pretty good game, but should have been extended a little.
