This game is a child of the 90s, from times when future was not all apocalypse and racing games dared to have other vehicles than automobiles.
The sounds of the planes, the craft and course design, radio chatter between competitors and the pre-race TV hosts introducing the upcoming track are few of the highlights which really make this futuristic world believable.
The game is challenging and the controls are really tight PROVIDED you’re using a joystick or even analog gamepad. This game NEEDS analog controls. Period.
One negative is the low in-game resolution which makes it hard to judge turns at distance and you to rely on track memorization. While the graphics are mostly OK and at times quite good for a 3D DOS game, there is no option to increase resolution past 320×200. Play it in 14″ CRT telly and it’ll be much better. -Supersocks
