Summary

Not the best racing game, but pretty fun

The Good

The game features a radio, making the game more realistic.

The cars look nice.

Cops add to the challenge.

The graphics are good, and so are the sounds

The Bad

Well, they could have put a dashboard like Maxis did in Streets of Sim City to make it more realistic.

The controls are sensitive! A little tap on the left or right key and the car makes a big turn.

On my Windows 98, the game runs horribly! On the back of the CD case, it said it could run on Windows 98, 2000, and even 95! The game slows down on me on numerous occasions. I can't imagine how it would run on 95.

The other racers run on a fixed course which means: NO AI! NONE AT ALL!

The Bottom Line

It is a fun game, I mean, you race through the U.S, but it isn't the best out there.
