If you liked the fine SNES version of this game, you'll get good mileage out of the Genesis game. It's virtually identical, which means these tracks are filled with strong racing.
As with the SNES version, the game provides a lot of good options. You choose from 15 rural tracks (a mix of ovals and road courses), and you customize your stock car in 20 ways (everything from the color to the tires). This game's for thinking drivers; matching your car's specs to the right track in order to beat the hard-chargin' competition is a true challenge.
ProTip: On steeply banked tracks like the ovals in Florida or Alabama, lower the spoiler's angle to generate higher speeds.
Efficient controls enable you to effectively weave through traffic. Your car really responds to changes you make, and it never goes so fast that you're always flying off the track, a problem that plagues other racing games.
The graphics are about equivalent with the SNES edition: large cars, spinouts, and colorful backgrounds with moving clouds and jets. The cars aren't as sharply defined as the SNES's, and the game still needs visual details like flying sparks from collisions. But the race is definitely involving, especially in the two-player split-screen game.
The sounds are about as strong as they were on the SNES. The roaring engines and screeching tires accurately convey the world of speed.
You'll go much slower on a twisty road course like Washington's than you do on an oval track, so select soft tires that'll handle all the turns.
Any racer can get into this game. The sophisticated options will entice veteran drivers, and the hard-chargin' action will attract novice speed demons. Climb in and peel out!
