Attention SNES racers: start your engines for F-1 ROC! Seta's new 16- bit driver requires a fast hand on the track and a cool head in the pits to take the checkered flag.

Drive for the Gold

Formula One racing is where it's at in ROC. Test drive 16 authentic Grand Prix courses in the training mode or you can proceed directly to the competition track for the eight car, real deal.This roadster's built for one-player comfort.

Your car's controls are textbook classics: accelerate, brake, downshift, upshift, and nitro. You can track an opponent's progress with a course map, but the one missing feature is a rear view mirror. Each time you place respectably, you earn points to increase your overall standing and extra bucks to help build a better car.

In-race damage can be repaired in the pits or at the shop for a small cut from your earnings. You can also spend your cash on several upgrades to your Chassis, Transmission, Brakes, Suspension, Diffuser, Front Wing, Rear Wing, Tires, and Engine. Buy Nitro for a speed boost during races.

Your race-drivin' opponents' cars improve right along with yours! Buy a better engine and their autos will be similarly improved. Take the lead early, or kiss these guys' exhaust pipes goodbye. ROC utilizes a 3-D, behind- your-exhaust-pipe camera angle. The graphics definitely shine, and the high-rewed sounds aren't bad either.

ProTip: At the start of the game, invest in traction-boosting items, such as Tires and Wings. Wait until you reach the U.S.A. course to add "power" components, such as an Engine. Never buy a seven-speed transmission. Stick with the sixth.

Champions, Race!

F-Zero trackies, who go for the thrill of "rush" racing, might not be blown away by ROC. However, fans of Formula One driving will enjoy F-1's extreme challenge, its real-life courses, and the add-on equipment feature. F-1 ROC rocks!

When you see a curve sign, check the severity of the curve before you act right curves require you to downshift a gear, then quickly upshift to regain speed.

This is a good example of a game design that spent more time working on the options as opposed to the actual play mechanics.The end result is a cart that looks good and provides a wide variety of customizing features, but once the race actually begun I was left feeling that most of the up-front features were wasted.

This racing game has plenty of spice and not a bad bit of action to boot! The most noticeable feature of this cart is the manner in which you are given complete control over your racer's performance and the roadways on which to race. There are some racing oversights, but overall this game provided some thrills.

This cart does a great job of adding features and options that make the game play more interesting. I like building your own car, but after you get through all the good options it's really not that great of a racing game. The graphics are good and the sounds are realistic but the game play is frustrating and control is minimal.

F1-ROC takes a little getting used to, but after a couple of races, it becomes fun. The customization option is a brilliant function, and the numerous tracks add a wide variety of racing action. I only wish the overall graphics has been drawn better, with some excellent explosions or something. As it is, the package is flat.

Exhaust Heat is a Super Famicom game, where you drive in race car and compete in a series of sixteen races on tracks from around the world. This game simulates the season and career of a Formula One superstar. The game uses the Super Famicom's Mode 7 to give the track and background perspective. You need to find a good balance between the parts.
