Review by Tom Allen
1 Star out of 4

What an interesting control scheme. Sega's Flag to Flag uses the R button to accelerate and the L button to brake. This refreshing new idea would be better appreciated without the delayed cornering response, however.

Flag to Flag feels more like a Dreamcast demo than a full-fledged game. One camera viewpoint - the driver's point of view - is often plagued by specs of dirt hitting your helmet. Eventually, the driver wipes the helmet clean after too many specs. Nice touch, Sega, but keep pushing the envelope. Was that the only idea you could come up with?

The problem is that this game is too straight-forward. It's a serious racer, meaning all of the tracks are realistic and not very creative. Furthermore, all the tracks have the same look and atmosphere, and the camera is hung too low to appreciate the sky. Looking at pavement gets dull.

On the plus side, the game has an on-screen rear view mirror. Also, you can set driver damage sensitivity, which affects how quickly you will need to use the pit stop. To use pit stops in the championship mode, put the damage on "real" and leave full coarse caution "off."

You can also select weather conditions in this game, but when we picked rain, we only got clouds! Where's the rain, Sega? I guess it's on the Flag to Flag parade, if you get my drift.
