Some interesting points made here. One of the things I never noticed originally playing this in 89 was the weird CD, especially with the trees, I guess they just assumed people wouldn't attempt to go that close to them. I know I never did!

I also noticed about halfway through the video you were dangerously close to the side wheels and it didn't collide either.  ;)

AA rated this highly, I didn't get it. I thought it was very boring to play, and as you mentioned, every track had the EXACT SAME color scheme which took away from it, especially when you're a 64k tape user, and this was a real bad multiload nightmare. It's like the graphics guys got lazy as the deadline loomed. And as you also pointed out, it's too slow.

I don't think the opponents cars crashed into each other in the arcade version either, so at least it was consistent if anything else. I'm not a fan of opponents cars crashing out anyway. It used to drive me insane on WEC Le Mans!  :laugh:

And yes, longplayers using cheats annoy me too. Sorry, but if you can't play the game as it's meant, don't try longplaying it.

Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?
