Ooh luvverly, I'm in a particularly miserly mood this month so nothing pleases me more than to review two bad games one after the other.

Afterburner was bad - this is even worse. It's a very basic 3D racing game with competent graphics, average sound and disastrously tedious gameplay.

The reason it's so boring is that it's terribly unrealistic. It's dead easy to overtake, dead easy to corner and worst of all dead easy to crash.

You can be doing well only to come a cropper because you were positioned a pixel out of place. Don't bother, guy.

Thanks... but no thanks. This is about as interesting as waiting for R-Type to load. It's programmed fairly well and quite attractive to look at but lordy, is it boooooooring? Er, yes.



Emerson FittiFrames tries to overtake on the outside and fails miserably. This action shot looks tasty, but it only flatters to deceive.
