The instant I received this (lacking of) quality game, I opened the box and played it. With a (not) rock-solid, (not) steady, (incredibly slow) speed of 1-2 Frames Per Second, this is sure to be a hit. Forget about the new-fangled "next generation" consoles, like Xbox, Gamecube, and PS2, and remember about Race Drivin'! It's the (never will) "knock-your-socks-off" game, with a tremendously (un)realistic damage model and midi music that will stick in your mind forever! I especially like the ultra-realistic physics, like how when you go over a hill you'll fly up 100 feet into the "air" and crash if you're going 5 mph over 60! One of the peripherals you'll definitely need for this game is a hammer, so make sure that you have this very important device. The way you use the hammer with this technologically (un)superior cartridge, is by putting it on a stoop, then whacking like there's no tomorrow! Also, the orangey-yellow smoke cloud and cracked windshield when you crash add extra realism to the game. This game even includes mythical shape-changing eighteen wheelers! There's a truck when you see it through your windshield, but in your rear-view mirror it becomes a car and then disappears after a frame (i.e. second) or two. All in all, this game is not only a ten, but it is an eleven! Go out and get it (and the hammer peripheral) today!

All I have to say about this game is "wow". WOW. Why is it that a company that can produce such high quality* games would stop? Even though this game sold only 4 copies, I still think it has alot to offer. First, the thrill of driving is amazingly* reinacted in this realistic* simulation*. I'll tell you, there's nothing like speeding into a tight turn at a max speed of 3 M.P.H. not to mention the realistic modeling! You almost feel like you're in the car! Wow. WOW. Also, the sound adds to the realistic experience, you have the one racing song that you can listen* to, but if you are lucky enough to crash and end this "wonderful" racing experience, you are greeted by a 2 second MIDI file! The developers also proved merit to the phrase "quality over quantity". I mean, God, why would you need any more tracks, when you have 3 nearly identical tracks already at your disposal! COME ON! BUY THIS GAME! And if you can't buy this game, go to 7 Endicott Road, Andover Massachusetts sometime late at night, look hard, and the treasure will be yours!
