Boss Rally

Boss Rally
1.5

Boss Rally from Southpeak Interactive is a glaring case of missing the point about everything that makes an arcade racer fun. Boss Rally offers 16 cars to choose from on six rally-style courses. You may race solo against up to 19 computer-controlled opponents or engage in competition against up to three other humans — an […]

TOCA Race Driver

TOCA Race Driver
3

The guys at Codemasters were really good at creating fantastic racing sims, such as Colin McRae, for both PC and Xbox. TOCA Race Driver is a more career and story focused driving sim, but with all of the Codemaster emphasis on realism. As you begin the game, you can choose to participate in series of […]

NASCAR Thunder 2003

NASCAR Thunder 2003
3

NASCAR Thunder was a marked improvement over the painfully bad NASCAR Revolution. The physics model, among other things, has been completely revamped here, from the handling of the vehicles to the way the car will take to the skies when conditions are right during a high speed collision. Like most respectable sims, NASCAR Thunder 2003 […]

Euro Rally Champion

Euro Rally Champion
2

Euro Rally Championship is pretty much bottom of the barrel rally racing, with dated graphics (2001’s Colin McRae Rally looks far more superior), uninteresting sound effects and poor sound support, gnawing loopy techno music and a bare-boned driving simulation that is outclassed by the decade-old NASCAR Racing (1994). You can drive through the barren and […]

Rocket Jockey

Rocket Jockey
3

In Rocket Jockey, you join like-minded thrill-seekers in an arena and compete in a series of events that challenge your skill as a rocket jockey. Using a third-person, over-the-shoulder view, you’ll pilot your rocket through dozens of unique arenas, using such unsportsmanlike tactics as clotheslining, tripping, and ramming your opponents in three different events: War, […]

Moto Racer

Moto Racer
4

The obvious inspiration for Moto Racer is Sega’s arcade game Manx TT. From the tracks to the planes that seem to fly overhead at the most graphically appealing moments, it has everything an arcade racer should have. The one main improvement with Moto Racer is that it supports Direct 3D. Unfortunately, there’s still a lack […]

Moto Racer 2

Moto Racer 2

Moto Racer 2 is a fast and furious superbike arcade racer. At its time, it had some of the best graphics around for a bike game. Like the original Moto Racer, MR2 puts you in powerful dirt bikes or superbikes and puts you in appropriate circuits. Racing modes range crom practice, single racers, time attack […]

NASCAR Racing 1999

NASCAR Racing 1999
3

Developed by Papyrus, Sierra’s line of NASCAR products is known not for style and flash but for realism and accuracy. NASCAR Racing 1999 has some modest improvements. The graphics are very similar to NASCAR 2, with minor improvements, while the audio, interface, and gameplay are unchanged. What is different here is the presence of 11 […]

Crazy Taxi 3

Crazy Taxi 3 continues the simple gameplay recipe of the well-known arcade racing series. The object of the game is to drive around in a taxi cab, always keeping your eyes peeled for potential customers. The first incarnation of this popular arcade racer was unleashed by Sega back in 1999, and was subsequently released on […]

Need for Speed: Underground

Need for Speed: Underground
4.5

The once-revered Need for Speed racing franchise has been coasting downhill since the superlative NFS: Porsche Unleashed rolled off EA’s production line. With each subsequent chapter, EA has dumbed-down the driving physics to placate the gamepad-equipped console crowd. NFS: Underground takes the racing in a new direction: although the vehicle dynamics are still conspicuously slot […]
