This game is truly a treat. The intense gameplay keep the player gripped to the calculator. The graphics are breathtaking: lightning cracks in the distance, rain falls down, streetlights, and trees blaze by as you go up and down hills and through tunnels and, of course, try to get the upper hand on your opponents.

However, there are a few problems. The graphics are stunning, but you pay a heavy price for them in archive space. Also, this game is very hard, and, while you can move one pixel at a time, this is one of those games where you must hit every key correctly. In some of the earlier levels, you might be able to collide with one or two things and still win, but in the later ones, you have to do everything perfectly. Another disadvantage you have is that all the other racers start out at top speed, slamming you from behind when you are trying to accelerate.

The idea of the game is to get through checkpoints and complete the level, not necessarily to win. In some of the later levels, Badja seems to have employed optical illusions such as tunnels to force the player to collide with other cars, which is incredibly annoying. The steering is reasonably tight, however, so if you know what to expect, you can usually pass through unscathed. The last three levels are excessively long and repetitive and often the player runs out of time in sight of the finish line, forcing him to retry the entire level.

Nonetheless, I recommend this game, for its initial fun and good graphics, if not for its replay value.
