FIRE, EXPLOSIONS, AND RACING?!?

The mean dirt slinging machines of the slam-and-mud test dragsters are hitting the screens on your Super NES! Choose from three wild and rip-pin' metal monsters! Each one of these totally devastating vehicles has the ability to tear up the track in its own special way, however, so be sure to pick carefully! One you're in the seat as a truly awesome four-wheeled warrior, it's out for blood in one of the wildest and most intense races ever!

Don't come to this competition expecting some simple walk around the oval, either. The terrain out there has a lot of nasty supprises ranging from sandpits to ice, with a few death-defying jumps thrown in for good measure. With enemy drivers out for blood and car customization, RPM roars!

Game Reviews

R.P.M. Racing (Radical Psycho Machines), is a new racing game along the lines of R.C. Pro-Am for the NES. You race a monster truck against three others in a battle to reign supreme! Enter shops after each race to improve your truck with many new items, such as sticky tires, super charged engines, and ultra strong suspension! After finishing a series of races, you move up to a tougher level!

People say:

7.0

While I give this game high marks for its original execution of the "racing" theme, it just doesn't have the play mechanics nor the visual pizzazz needed to make it a winner. This type of game needs an all-out intensity that unfortunately is missing from RPM Racing. Even though the music kicks, the graphics just chop.

6.0

While this racing game doesn't have all the special effects the an F-Zero has it still does things that make it a very enjoyable cart. Racing head-to-head on a split screen is a blast! The competition is intense and even though it is set for the younger player old veteran racers can still have some fun.

4.0

Rotation Pleases Martin. Well if you are going to make a game for the Super NES why don't you use the special graphics modes? The game play is difficult and the car is hard to control. I believe that RPM could have been a much better with some scaling and rotation built in to give it the needed special effects.

4.0

This is definitely NOT one of the most impressive Super NES games available! RPM Racing never struck me as an awesome game to begin with, so don't go looking for high praise on this one. Very few of the Super NES special effects are utilized. It seems F-Zero is the only really cool racing game out there.

RPM Racing offers two player, split screen racing at it's finest. There are five tracks to choose from, each of which you can customize to your own racing preference. Ramps, curves, and nasty road obstacles give the racing an off-road feel. Each time you blast past the checkered flag as a winner you collect the big bucks. Put those bucks to work! Stop in at the automotive shop and you can upgrade your mean machine with top-of-the-line parts and engines. All's not in the size of your engine, however. The mote power you have under the hood, the more precise your driving skills must be. Get ready to max out those rpm's with RPM Racing.
