4 Stars out of 4

This game is being reviewed for a second time, as part of our "classic" coverage. From time to time, we will re-visit games that we are still playing and enjoying since the initial release.

I am still amazed that Beetle Adventure Racing was not nominated by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences in May 2000. This game has been largely overlooked by gaming fans and should be given a second life on the Sega Dreamcast.

The controls and graphics are so smooth that you will be proud to own this game. Environments are textured so beautifully that you will never once tire of completing another lap. The cleverness of the course designs is something that must be experienced by all gamers.

The sheer amount of shortcuts and the interesting interconnection of those shortcuts makes for a more explorative experience. Gosh, that's a mouthful!

Each course is as fun as the last, and the scope of game play is expanded through the use of special crates with point values. Bust these crates with some hot fender action to earn enough points for continues and other cheats.

Rarely does a game make you feel like you are in the screen's depicted environment. Beetle Adventure Racing is an exception that will take you to the temples and sand dunes of Egypt, to the castles and forests of Wicked Woods, to the highways and merge ramps of the big city, to earthly volcano islands, to the icy crevasses and misty roads of the mountains, and to the waterfalls, open farm land, and underground mines of the vast countryside.

If you still haven't played Beetle Adventure Racing, you should be shot and skinned alive so Charlton Heston can use your body as a Halloween costume.
