Streets of Simcity

Streets of Simcity
2

The llama bows its head shame. Mapping 2D cities from SimCity 2000 into 3D space has been done once before in the Maxis game SimCopter, but never had there been a car combat gimmick wrapped around the idea. But despite what is implied, Streets of SimCity is not Interstate ’76 set in the land of […]

F1 Championship 2000

It’s easy to confuse Formula One racing simulations because they look and play in a similar fashion. There’s UbiSoft’s Monaco Grand Prix 2, Psygnosis’ Formula 1, EA Sports’ F1 2000, Sierra’s Grand Prix Legends, Eidos’ F1 World Grand Prix and then also EA’s F1 Championship 2000. It’s a sequel to F1 2000, and it introduces […]

Mercedes-Benz Truck Racing
3.5

If you enjoy two very specific things – Mercedes trucks and racing – then you’re probably going to enjoy this low key but surprisingly digestible game.

Dethkarz

Dethkarz
3.5

Dethkarz looks very similar to many other post-apocalyptic sci-fi racers like WipeoutXL: 2097, Motorhead or POD: Planet of Death. One can even compare it to MegaRace, an old racing game that was one of the very first to make use of CD-ROM technology. However visually comparable this game appears to these venerable titles of the […]
