Description official description

The sequel to Have a N.I.C.E. day! had a lot of improvements: instead of 3 cars you're now able to choose between more than 42 cars, 24 tracks with 96 variations and a lot of new race modes. The most significant feature is the new powerful graphic engine, it's able to display a lot more polygons and has some nice new effects (plus 3d accelerator support).

Two games in one package and a whole lot more

The Good
Very realistic arcade racing with great damage modeling. There are two types of racing games in this single package. On the one hand you have a arcade go for broke racing game, on the other is a very in depth simulation racing game. In the arcade half you can race little bug cars or monster trucks. Some cars resemble late 60's American musclecars while others are modern supercars. In the simulation mode you buy, build and race whatever car you can afford. Both arcade and simulation racing in one N.I.C.E package

The Bad
The simulation half of this awesome game can be confusing and maddening to the point of not even bothering to try it. If you have the patience it is a very exciting experience, if not the arcade racing more than makes up for the crazy sim side.

The Bottom Line
Do you like racing everything from Mini to full sized bus, if you do then this game is for you. More than 40 different vehicles and some 24 tracks will keep you busy for quite some time and that is just the arcade side of things. If you really want to challenge yourself there is a very deep and sometimes confusing simulation side which includes the above mentioned vehicles and tracks. Also included is a car combat mode where you get to take out your frustrations out on other racers, with very cool weapons such as: a gatling gun, grenades, missles and mines. All in all this is a very good racing game with fantastic graphics and a ton of racing modes so go out and see if you can find a copy and go nuts.!!
