Re: Have You Played This Game Today?
Greg, I played one here in NJ that is called Daytona something... It
is the best road racing game I have driven(played). Very real turning
and control. Play head to head or solo. You can apex turns to get
better speed and shifting is realistic. You hit walls and it
determines the amount of damage and you can keep going until you toal
your car. Nothing like that Lambo drive through Miami that used to be

It's an arcade game called Sega Rally. The best driving game I've
played yet. It's a 2-player with virtual reality technology. You can
race against the computer or another player. Choice of two cars -- a
Lancia rally car, which handles much like an Audi, and a Toyota Celica
GT. You can choose from a 4-speed automatic or a clutchless 4-speed
manual in either car. You race on one of several European
autocross-type racecourses. The makers of this game actually modeled
the performance characteristics of these cars into the game. The
Toyota has serious acceleration and top end -- is it turbocharged? The
Lancia is less quick, but handles like it's on rails. I always use the
Lancia. If you use the proper technique, you can do full power slides
around turns. You go over dirt, pavement, bumps, water, everything.
There's a voice that tells you what type of turn is coming up ("hard
right," "medium left", etc). Steering is excellent. It's the whole
ball of wax. It's been at one arcade here (Quarters in Kirkland, WA)
for several months, but I haven't seen it anywhere else yet. Check it out.
