User review spotlight: Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (DOS)
Jack Rourke, the protagonist.
Jack is having hard trouble paying mob what he owes them, and they are determined to make an example of him.
Trying to outrun his pursuers like his life depends on it, which it coincidentally does.
For more realistic feel you can switch for front camera which will put you closer to the asphalt.

You don't have to play nice in order to advance.
Driving in 1st-person will put you much closer and personal to your opponents.
You can stop at gas stations to switch cars.
There's still a long way to New York.
Some opponents you'll have to take head on, but winning will earn you their pink slips.
Racing against Nikki and Mila.
What a predicament.
The sign said that road may be icy in some areas, but everything seems icy here.
Don't worry if your car looks busted, at the beginning of each mission you get a brand new one.
It is a rare phenomenon that cops chase anyone else but me, must be a bug :P
As the race goes, you'll get access to faster cars.
Hold the lead until the counter reaches zero.
The entire stage, from west coast to east coast.
Drifting may help you in curves if you can master it.
If you wreck the car, you'll be able to continue, but there is a limited number to that.
Cops are fast and persistent but things happen.
There are many cars to check in the car viewer after you've finished the race.
