Trots att tiden har gjort sitt vad gäller grafiken så är körkänslan lika underbar som den var för tio år sedan. Förväntar du dig realism är detta knappast någonting för dig. Spelet försöker inte vara någonting annat än en helknäpp och renodlad arkadracer som ändå lyckas leverera en rejäl dos nostalgisk underhållning.
Big Red Racing is fun, fun, fun... and even more fun! The real kicker is that this game has a MSRP of only $29.99 (US)! At just under $30, every PC gamer will get their money's worth, and then some. The street price will probably be a bit lower than that (if you shop around). So many tracks to race, with a wide variety of unusual vehicles to race with, makes this a must-have game for anyone looking for pure adrenaline-pumping action and fabulous multi-player fun, all rolled up into one ridiculously affordable package.

Big Red Racing, as we wrote in our past preview, is what you should look for if you are into arcade-racing games with multi-player support. This racing game is however completely the opposite of such titles as "The Need for Speed" or "Indycar Racing" whose realism is the primary element. Instead, "Big Red Racing" features fast driving in a 3D environment where you can drive freely with the most unbelievable range of vehicles, playing the whole at frantic speeds.
Anyway, Big Red Racing is a really great game. Gameplay is fun, and there is enough variety in vehicles and tracks that it'll keep you coming back. Big Red Racing will even be available for play on The Entertainment Network so you'll be able to challenge people across the Net for fun.
There's nothing really wrong with the game, except that the tournament play gets tiresome after a while. You have to win a certain number of races at the easy level, more at the intermediate level, and so on. And with no save game feature, once you lose, you have to start from scratch again. And so when you lose on the expert level, one win away from victory, you have to start all the way back at the beginning. It increases replayability, but it is still quite frustrating. All in all, Domark's contribution to the racing sim genre is a solid, unique product, offering some of the weirdest racing locals and vehicles this reviewer has ever seen. And for $29.95, who can beat the price?

Det er ikke så mye mer å si, spillet har en lett humoristisk sans over seg (greit kommentatorene kan bli litt irriterende i lengden), med en grafikk som inneholder noe tegnefilm-ish over seg. Spillet tar seg selv ikke høytidelig, og er glimrende i flerspiller. Hvis du har noen å spille med, samt liker arkaderacere, da kan jeg anbefale Big Red Racing på det varmeste, 17 år etter det så dagens lys for første gang. 18 år!

Once you get the hang of it, BRR's a real gas, especially in its multi-player mode. A racing sim it's not, but arcade fans should get a real kick out of it.
Für wen es nichts Schöneres gibt, als über Sanddünen oder künstliche Schanzen zu springen oder die lästige Konkurrenz mit ein paar deftigen Remplern ins Abseits zu befördern, wird an Big Red Racing helle Freude haben. Allerdings nur, wenn man zusätzlich auf spärliche Landschaftsdarstellung und ruckelige Bilderfolgen steht. Das alles wohlgemerkt bei einer Grafikqualität, an der der Zahn der Zeit schon recht arg nagt. Immerhin kann der Bildausschnitt verkleinert werden. Der Turniermodus bringt etwas Dauermotivation ins Spiel, die Sound-Effects versuchen Leben in die Tristesse zu bringen.
