With just a flick of the wrist and a tap of a finger, you were burning up the highways at top speed in Rad Racer I. The excitement was nearly unbearable, but when the dust settled and the crowds had all gone home, things just weren't the same. Bet you'd never thought you'd have that feeling again, right? Wrong! Just when you thought all was lost, along comes Rad Racer II. Whew!

Now, once again you can feel that powerful rush as you switch on your "Turbo Boost" and power your way through eight new cities, including New York, Las Vegas, and San Francisco. There's a hot new selection of drivin' tunes to help get you revved up, too! So on that note, if it's the thrill of speed that you need, keep an eye open for Rad Racer II, ease yourself behind the controls and get down to some hard drivin'.

Game Reviews

Here comes the turbo-charged sequel to one of the most memorable NES classic, Rad Racer! Rad Racer 2 expands upon the previous game by throwing together all-new courses, new music and even more challenging game play as you battle across the United States in your auto. Better graphics and sounds populate this follow-up being released directly from Square, the developers of the first Rad Racer.

People say:

7.0

Beyond some graphic and sound changes, I can't really tell that much difference between Rad Racer one and two. I really enjoyed the original, and the second is a welcome surprise, I wish they could have done more to make it even better.

6.0

Not a spectacular game at all. Rad Racer 2 is not any worse than the first, but it's no better either. The game controls and plays exactly like the first, only new backgrounds and goals have been added. There needs to be a little more in this one.

5.0

An average sequel to one of the best Nintendo drivers, Rad Racer 2 tries to recapture the look and feel of the first, but the scrolling isn't as smooth and the game play isn't as good either. The only big plus is its harder than the first.

7.0

Rad Racer is as good as ever, with brand new courses, tunes and options. The cars control the same and you still get some "coastingtime" before you stops (I always liked that!). If you liked the first than you should enjoy the sequel.
