Summary

Get with the funk

The Good

The funk, oh, glorious funk. The moment you load it up you hear that groovy music and you are back in 1976. When the characters swagger out strutting their stuff in their flares you know that this game is cool. Especially that guy with the afro. I love racing games, I love shooting things, put together with a cool theme, this is is a sure-fire winner with me. A unique element is that I used to play this two-player with my friend, but not against each other, co-operatively. One person would steer while the other shoot. A nice touch was the way you could fire your sidearm out of the window. Blowing up cars was never so much fun. The cut scenes were great as well, putting you back in the '70s

The Bad

I have played this on a few machines and one problem remains, it jerks. Stupid jerkiness. It doesn't take away from the fun though as I put up with it.

The Bottom Line

Extremely fun driving/shooting game that drags you all the way back to the era it depicts - the grooooovy '70s.
