Review by Tom Allen
3 Stars out of 4

Electronic Arts should be commended for being the first in a long time to include a decent create-a-track mode in a racing game. In fact, I would say, without question, that it far surpasses Jeremy McGrath in that regard. I had more fun creating tracks than racing them. The program is so easy to use that you'll feel like you should be programming (I should say designing) all these damn video games yourself.

The God complex is not without spoils, however. Your personally created tracks may use no more than 50 building blocks of "road" material. Tracks can't overlap, either. Intersections are not allowed and are indicated in red as you build. If this mode had allowed for more freedom, we might have considered giving the game an "A" for that feature alone.

The second best feature of the game is how you can test-drive a car right from the car selection screen, eliminating the hassle of wasted experimentation.

The racing action on its own is not ground-breaking, but the Arcade, V-Rally, and Championship modes should be enough to keep you busy. In V-Rally mode, damage to your car does not affect its performance. The opposite is true for the Championship mode, which provides the most challenge. This game is currently available for the PlayStation.
