Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game for clear reasons has the best graphics for the standalone Megadrive (so with no Mega CD or 32X). Why? Because Sega decided to respond to the popularity of Nintendo's Super FX chip in games like Star Fox by creating the Sega Virtua Processor, or SVP for short. The one thing Sega couldn't do that Nintendo could, however, was fit the processor in a standard cartridge for the Megadrive, which is understandable as compared to the Super Nintendo cartridges the Megadrive cartridge is pretty damn small. So this cartridge is about twice the size of a normal Megadrive cartridge, and this is all in height. So if you have your Megadrive say in a cabinet where you are just able to fit Megadrive cartridges in, your luck's up unless you want to pull the console out.

Also, I wouldn't plan on buying this game if you have one of those recently produced "plug-in and play" Megadrive consoles that have a cartridge slot. They use software emulation, and will just freak out when they see the extra hardware inside this cartridge, clearly because atgames didn't decide to use Kega Fusion as a software base... While they don't use software emulation, this won't work on your Sega Nomad or Genesis 3 either. Only buy if you have an original Megadrive or the original Megadrive II Models.

After all the hardware, let's actually go to the game. The graphics are very impressive, as was the idea of this game. This processor shows it is highly probably superior to the Super FX chip, as the amount of polygons you will see while racing through the 3 tracks will easily put Starfox to shame... Specially since half the effects in that game still rely on sprites. But I digress. The only thing I would have left out was the pits at the start of the first track... That pit crew just wasn't worth the effort.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Excellent fun for a 16 bit games console. If I remember correctly, every scrap of memory was used in the making of this game. A real arcade winner!
