Trivia

Music

The 3DO version was one of the first games to license music from real bands. That was of course only possible since the introduction of CD-ROMs for games. Electronic Arts struck gold when they signed the college band Soundgarden for the game. By the time of the release in 1994, the group released the breakthrough album Superunknown that debuted at number one on the US Billboard charts and yielded two Grammy Award-winning singles.

Awards

The game received two awards in GameFan's 1994 "Megawards" (Vol 3, Iss. 1)
  • Overall Driving/Racing Game of the Year
  • Best 3DO Driving/Racing Game of the Year
It was also #22 in FLUX Magazine's (Issue #4) Top 100 Video Games of All-Time.
