Renowned for congestion and tailbacks, the M25 might not seem the most obvious venue for a racing game. M25 Racer does what it says on the box though, enabling you to illegally race around sections of Britain's favourite motorway. And there's more. London and Oxford both feature heavily, as does the route between them.
Developed by Dutch outfit Davilex, their unique impression of England appears to have been gleaned from an episode of The New Avengers, The game being littered with rolling hills, red phone boxes and Range Rover police cars. The obligatory Stonehenge makes a token appearance, although druids will be upset to learn that it has been relocated to the Home Counties.
As for the racing, it's a fairly unrefined affair. The cars don't roll or display damage, and at high speed the road appears to buckle somewhat disconcertingly. Ultimately, it's a poor man's hybrid of Need For Speed III and Midtown Madness, both of which are available for a few dollars more.
