    ACCLAIM BRINGS SEGA ENTERPRISES' SMASH ARCADE GAME F355 CHALLENGE: PASSIONE ROSSA HOME

    Highly-Anticipated Sega Dreamcast Version of Yu Suzuki's Arcade Masterpiece Arrives In Stores



    GLEN COVE, NY (SEPTEMBER 22, 2000) - Acclaim Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKLM), a worldwide interactive entertainment company, today announced that the company has distributed the Sega Dreamcast[per thou] version of the highly-praised arcade racing simulation F355 Challenge: Passione Rossa to stores. The game features online components in addition to the popular racing modes of the original. Acclaim currently holds distribution rights for F355 Challenge: Passione Rossa in North America and Europe.

    "Acclaim is pleased to have partnered with Sega to distribute this impressive racing simulation," said Evan Stein, Brand Director of Acclaim Entertainment. "F355 Challenge has set a new benchmark for racing games, providing gamers with the true-to-life thrills of driving a Ferrari."

    F355 Challenge is a highly realistic racing simulation featuring the F355 Challenge racing car. The game boasts extraordinarily smooth graphics, gorgeous circuit visuals and unprecedented car control. The game contains six circuits, all of which are accurately modeled, including stadiums with detailed graphics. F355 Challenge incorporates an in-depth training mode featuring an auto-braking system and voice and visual guidance. After the race is complete, players are given the data on their racing line, time, RPM, speed and gear selection.

    F355 Challenge's Internet capabilities allows gamers to download competitors' race times via an Internet service provider. The races are accurately represented through the use of "ghost cars." Anyone can log on to race, and up to 16 players can compete in the same race where the top eight scorers advance. Gamers can store and maintain their network ranking scores in the Driving Data mode. Top ranking scores can also be uploaded to a server. Gamers can also compete in split-screen races by engaging in the Versus Play mode.

    Replicating the thrills of its beloved arcade counterpart, F355 Challenge boasts several modes for single-player racing enjoyment, including: Arcade, a checkpoint style race similar to the original arcade version of F355 Challenge; Championship, where gamers compete for the combined highest score; and finally, Single Play, another arcade-style mode where the gamer is not restrained by time limits. The result is a game which attempts to bring gamers closer than ever before to experiencing the real thrill of F355 Challenge racing.
