In the year 2525, if man is still alive, game developers believe he will be partaking in hover races. It's scarcely the most original of concepts, and indeed one that has sparked a minor conspiracy theory. Cynics believe that some racing games were never intended to involve hover-vehicles, it's just that the developers were unable to implement the wheels properly, forcing a change of focus at a late stage in the project.
Paranoid ramblings, clearly, and if Midas want to release a 23rd century racing game featuring hovercrafts with modified classic car chassis', that's their business. And that's exactly what they've done, with all the requisite speed boosts and so forth that one would expect from the genre. So far, so WipEout, except it's a far more leaden experience, and that includes the music, which is nothing more than a barely discernible dirge.
While the graphics are no great shakes tor the PC, they could probably still hold their own against any of the so-called superconsoles, although the Blade Runner-esque cityscapes pile on the cliches. By way of vague originality, your craft increases in speed lap by lap until it's barely controllable, making qualifying for the next race a tricky business.
