The Video Game Critic
The controls are simple as can be, but there's plenty of strategy involved with timing your turbo boosts and using the pit stops in the most efficient manner. The tracks tend to be narrow, so there's a lot of bumping going on as you jockey for position. In the pit area, tiny crew members leap out to work on your car, which looks funny but impressive at the same time. This is one of the few games where pit stops really do make a difference! Between races you can easily and quickly use winnings to upgrade your vehicle. Expertly designed and programmed with care, Indy Heat sets the high water mark for old-school racing fun.
Danny Sullivan’s Indy Heat is a surprisingly fun racing game. If you race alone the game starts to grow old but it always heats up when you have some friends over. Along with this game’s older brother Super Off-Road, this is one of the best 4-Score compatible releases on the NES.
