Peu emballant à première vue, Touring Car possède les qualités et la difficulté pour combler les accros du jeu de course.

Wie schon bei Sega Rally gelang den Programmierern des nichts ganz so populären STCC-Automaten (der einzige, den ich kenne, steht in einem französischen Skiort) eine im Rahmen der Saturn-Möglichkeiten sehr gute Konvertierung mit erträglichem Pop-Up-Syndrom, die alle Rennspielfans nicht enttäuschen wird.

If you don't have a 3D Pad, then don't bother with Sega Touring Car. Without analog support you have little chance of appreciating this game. It moves fast, but at a low frame rate. Once you get used to the control and tweak your car(s), the challenge to compete will keep you interested...

Doté d´une réalisation plus que correcte et orienté très arcade, ce jeu est à conseiller à ceux qui n´ont pas peur de se décoiffer devant leur TV...
In all, Sega Touring Car Championship is more difficult than it's worth. There are no real-life tracks from out of NASCAR or the Formula 1 circuit, and Mario Andretti never makes an appearance. Graphically it suffers less than a lot of the competition - hats off to the developers for eliminating the number one enemy of any game based on pure speed: graphical slowdown. However, control issues plague the game, and with only three tracks, even a perfect racer would only be fun for so long.
The Video Game Critic
I don't even know what a "touring car" is, but apparently they are forced to race on the most boring tracks on earth. There's really nothing to see outside of the wall-lined courses, and the high speeds make it hard to anticipate upcoming turns. But the worst part of Sega Touring Car, by far, is when you ACCIDENTALLY pull into that God-forsaken pit stop area. Like most racers, the pit stop is just a waste of time and if you use it, you're guaranteed to lose. I suppose the same could be said about playing this game.
