MegaRace takes place on a futuristic virtual racetrack and features 15 different tracks spread over five stunning worlds with state-of-the-art 3-D rendered graphics and digitized animation. Go head-to-head on a virtual racetrack where anything--absolutely anything--goes. All the while, your maniacal journey through the future will be watched by the world, courtesy of Virtual World Broadcast Television (VWBT). Each track is filled with ingenious hazards like ice patches, skid zones, and deceleration areas--all denoted by symbols on the roadway. Your goal is to eliminate the five most depraved road gangs ever produced by VWBT, each with his/her own distinctive personality. Speed past your competition, and proceed with caution!

Game Reviews

So you think it's wild on L.A. freeways? Wait'll you experience the radical racing of MegaRace. The bizarre tracks for this futuristic driving game are set in impossible locations. How impossible? Inside a particle accelerator, around the rings of Saturn, and through a whale's body, for starters. Scattered among the courses are 3D obstacles, loop-the-loops, and steep drops. Using a behind-the-car view, you'll compete against five computer-controlled opponents or engage in two-player head-to-head competition.

For futuristic racing fun, strap on your seat belt and take MegaRace for a spin. You'll drive down some of the most harebrained tracks you've ever seen.

Ready, Set, Go!

In MegaRace, you're on Virtual World Broadcast Television, hosted by the ever-annoying Lance Boyle. As the next Enforcer chosen to race against tough-guy competitors, your mission is to thrill your millions of viewers and "race to win," which means you fire shots at opponents ahead of you. Fast and fun, the behind-the-car racing takes you through futuristic cities and even underwater.

The excellent graphics feature beautiful, detailed backgrounds and large, easy-to-follow cars. The varied backgrounds show off bright colors and vivid details that enhance the action.

The otherworldly sounds are as realistic as you could want. The high, steady whine of the motor forecasts the future of driving games, but the lack of dynamic background music somewhat diminishes even the game's best sound effects.

The only downfall of this cart is the control. You're traveling at top speeds across tracks filled with obstacles, but unfortunately it's very difficult to control your squirrelly vehicle. The wall and your car meet frequently on the sharp turns.

Mega Good

If you can overcome the difficult controls, MegaRace can generate MegaFun. Beginning gamers, however, and those with little patience will have a hard time with this disc. Once you're deep into the game, you'll agree that the fast racing and excellent graphics make it Mega-nificent.

ProTips:

  • Don't let the enemy get behind you, or you're toast!
  • Use your firepower sparingly. You need to save lots of ammo for the ends of the races.
