If you like loud, fast racing, jump into one of the Newman Haas racing team's Indy cars and hit the track! This cart offers some of the best 16-bit racing of the season.

Unlike Acclaim's NFL Quarterback Club cartridges, the Genesis and SNES versions of Newman Haas IndyCar Racing look quite different once you get past the menus. The SNES game looks like most of the early video racing games of the past, with the "banded" roadway scrolling underneath the cars to simulate speed. The Genesis version, on the other hand, has a more realistic road surface and features numerous scaling roadside objects, from buildings and signs to - of all things - cactuses at the Phoenix circuit!

So overall, we get a rather tepid mix of a racing game, boasting a few nice features and decent race controls buried in a bland presentation, with many options but few diversions... ...kind of like real Indy car racing, actually.

If you don't yet have a racing game on your shelf (and you really shouldn't have one), this one could do you some justice. But if you're like me and you've been playing these games for years, try to steer clear of this one.

Richtig schlecht präsentiert sich dagegen das MD-Pendant. Einzig der Sound ist besser zu bewerten. Die nette Sprachausgabe und realistischere Motorengeräusche können ohne Zweifel überzeugen. Dagegen sind Grafik und Spielvergnügen, gerade im Vergleich, eine einzige Zumutung. Der Zwei-Spieler-Modus wird zur Qual, Ruckeln ohne Ende sorgt für Frust ohne Ende, da kaum eine Kurve optimal angesteuert werden kann. Auch die Bildschirmaufteilung ist hier deutlich schlechter, wie aus den Screenshots zu ersehen ist. Die MD-Version ist ein klassisches Beispiel für ein Game, das mit großen Namen und teurem Preis den ahnungslosen Käufer locken soll!
