5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy racer for N64!, 20 July 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Beetle Adventure Racing (Video Game)
For anyone who doesn't know anything about this game, it's best described as a cross between Mario Kart/Diddy Kong Racing and a full-on arcade racer - Top Gear Overdrive comes to mind ...but this is much better!

The whole feel of the game is very solid and could easily be passed off as an official Nintendo game to anyone who didn't know otherwise. The graphics are superb, very cartoon-like, packed with character and are still quite impressive today. The courses are absolutely MASSIVE and have an insane amount of short-cuts - finding them all can take ages, but it's damn satisfying when you do! They also each have a great cartoon vibe about them, be it a tropical island, ancient Egypt or a haunted wood.

Speed-wise, it starts off quite slowly (no faster than say, Mario Kart) but soon gets a hell of a lot faster once you start to progress through the tournaments. The game ends up being one of the fastest racers on N64 by the final tournament!!! The controls are also very solid and the cars are great fun to drive!

A great final touch to this game is the inclusion of 'boxes' - Each course is littered with boxes that contain points. These boxes are usually tucked away in bushes, alleyways, and the many secret shortcuts on each track. Collect the full 100 points worth of boxes on any one course and you'll be rewarded with a bonus, usually crazy cheats! This works really well and requires you to learn the courses inside out, including finding all the crazy short cuts - which are the most exciting parts of the course!

Highly recommended!

This review is from: Beetle Adventure Racing (Video Game)
THIS IS THE BEST RACER FOR N64 WITHOUT A DOUBT, TOP GEAR RALLY AND MARIO KART DON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO THIS MODERN CLASSIC, A WONDERFULL MIX OF CARS COMBINED WITH A HEADY ARRAY OF INSANE TRACKS MAKES THIS ONE OF THE BEST GAMES ON THE N64
