R.C. Grand Prix

R.C. Grand Prix isn't the usual racing game - it's based around those great off-road radio controlled buggies that go incredibly fast and go through batteries even faster!

At the start of the game, the number of players is selected (up to five can race), and then you're off. There are four cars in the race, three are computer-controlled, and the other one is under control of the player. The idea is simply to drive your car around the narrow, twisting track (it can't leave the track, but slows down when it bumps into the sides), overtake the computer cars and come first - simple, eh?

The winners are awarded prize money, which you can use to buy extra goodies for your car - and you certainly need to, as opponents get really tough later on.


R. C. Grand Prix

R.C. Grand Prix is a highly enjoyable game which offers all the fun of radio-controlled racing without the expense of zillions of batteries. The car whizzes around the smooth-scrolling track, and overtaking the opposition while keeping it from bashing into the side requires good hand-to-eye co-ordination.

The graphics and sound are great and the only problem I can see is that there's not much variety in the gameplay so, it one player mode at least, lasting appeal is limited.

But if you're after an original multi-player race game that's fun rather than exhilarating, check this one out. You could be surprised!
