Unlike the previous San Francisco Rush titles, this racing game is set in the future. The same rules apply though, get to the finish before everyone else while avoiding massive crashes and taking as many shortcuts as possible.
Along with the usual race style, you now have the ability to fly, allowing you even more speed, stunts and shortcuts to the finish line. While the tracks themselves include moving ramps and switches to other shortcuts.
Modes include time trials, stunt mode including unique track designs to get the most out of your stunts, and a four player 'Battlematch' mode that adds weapons to the action.
This was the last game published in the arcades under the company Atari Games Corporation. The owners at the time felt that the name "Atari" was too associated with the older 2600 home game market so they discontinued using the Atari Games name and all arcade games from them after this were made under the Midway name.
