Turbo Cup Challenge

Oh, not another driving sim?! How 'unthrilling' can you get? Oh well, suppose we'd better have a look.

"Race at speeds in excess of 120 MPH!". More like jerk' around rather slowly if you can get to grips with the stupid control system. "Practice on each course first, before competing in a head to head race!" True, but the practice bit is intensely boring (there's no one to compete against). "Race around four of the most exciting race tracks in Europe - Magny, Cours, Dijon. Prenois, Nogargo and Paul Ricard!" Exciting? Pretty samey, I'd say. And there's hardly any scenery either so there's little to look at (or indeed crash into). "Featuring unbelievably accurate graphics!" (erm, no). "Artificially intelligent competitors!" (not really), "Accurate race track representations!" (yes, but who cares?) "And more" More? "Hurrah!"

Oh dear I hate to say it, but this is a bit of a waste of time really. Unplayable, unaddictive, jerky - and a bit crap. Thank you and goodnight.
