The Dreamcast has been out now for nearly three months and we are still waiting for the first traditional racing game to hit the streets.

Looking very nice, and due for release very soon after the Dreamcast launch in September (there's still a chance it'll make launch day on 9/9/99) is Ubi Soft's latest development of its hot-rod racing franchise. Playing somewhat like Beetle Adventure Racing on the N64, the game is full of beautiful scenery and lots of alternate routes through the huge courses. The car design is imaginative and different--and the controls are absolutely spot-on. Could be a bit of a sleeper hit this one.
The Dreamcast gets its first taste of high-octane arcade road racing with Speed Devils. You can choose from 12 hot-rod racers and grind fenders with your opponents on 8 tracks set in locales that include New York City, Las Vegas, and Hollywood. Each track's loaded with shortcuts, and your path changes with each lap. In addition to Arcade, Championship, and two-player split-screen modes, there's a gambling feature that allows you to put more than just your pride on the line.
