World Tour Racing is an Formula 1-style racing game. The player guides a very fast car on road courses based on countries around the world. The graphics in the game feature fully 3D environments constructed with texture-mapped polygons.
The various game modes include a championship, single race, and arcade mode. Championship mode consists of a 16-race season. Single race is self-explanatory, and arcade mode is similar to championship mode, except that advancement to the next race is based whether or not the player finishes high enough in each race.
