Definitely not a standard race game, this Geoff Crammond masterpiece proves you can do fast 3-D on the 64. The graphics are stunning, with the undulating tracks giving a convincing rollercoaster thrill. Your souped-up car can do 0-60 mph in two seconds, and it feels like it!

Most spectacular are the huge jumps - especially on the track called The Big Ramp, where you need maximum speed to make it over. Falling into a gap or over the side is easily done, causing severe damage to your car and loss of valuable time as you race a computer opponent.

A drivers championship adds long-term challenge. There are four divisions of three drivers: win and you're promoted for the next season. The award of a point for the fastest lap during each race makes you keep your foot down.

Stunt Car Racer is compulsive, superbly presented (with practice and save options) and perfectly implemented.
