Atari 7800The Video Game Critic
The races themselves are fair, but the animation is pretty choppy, and the handling is not what I'd call precise. Even the audio sounds messed up, with your engine sounds cutting out whenever you roll over the shoulder. The scenery is minimal, except for those annoying Atari signs that appear every 50 feet or so. Although the instructions recommend using the standard two-button 7800 controller to allow for accelerating and braking, you'll want to ditch that thing like a bad habit and use your favorite 2600 joystick instead. Who needs a brake in a racing game for Pete's sake?! Isn't the idea to go fast? Duh! For a game this basic, Atari screwed it up as only they could have. That company's incompetence always amazed me. Was this expected to compete with the NES and Super Mario Bros? Give me a [expletive] break!
