RC Cars

RC Cars
4

Much like ReVolt, RC Cars is a fun little racing game that puts you in control of a remote controlled car racing around a host of different environments. The game offers pretty good graphics, detailed environments, and fun gameplay. However, the game does have a few problems, like a frustratingly unforgiving single player mode and […]

Mercedes-Benz Truck Racing

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 […]

Grand Prix 4

Grand Prix 4
3.5

Geoff Crammond was long considered the godfather of Grand Prix racing simulations. Unfortunately, with Grand Prix 4, it was obvious he was clinging to the same graphics and physics engines that was used in past games. This isn’t to say that GP4 is a bad game. Far from it — Crammond’s sim is a stylish […]

Dirt Track Racing: Sprint Cars one of 16 official vehicles, representing four different basic types of car models.

Monaco Grand Prix Racing Simulation 2

Monaco Grand Prix Racing Simulation 2
4

Monaco Grand Prix Racing Simulation 2 depicts the FIA Formula One series, but never states as much. The cars and teams are fictitious but closely modeled after 1998 F1 cars. By the same token, the tracks are rarely (Monaco excepted) identified by name, but seem to be exact replicas of the circuits that host the […]

Beetle Buggin’

Beetle Buggin’
3.5

As a racing game, Beetle Buggin’ (based on the Volkswagen Beetle) is surprisingly broad. You can run Quick Races, but the game inexplicably doesn’t allow you to select the tracks, just the type of race. You can choose from any of the four race types: Speed (regular racing on concrete), Jump (a bizarre skill test […]
