super speed racing
it was leagues ahead of anything on the n64 or playstation
An early release for the Dreamcast, Super Speed Racing captured the pomp and circumstance of the American CART racing, delivering it in a nice little package to Japanese gamers several months before Dreamcast owners in the USA.
Featuring all of the drivers and officially licensed circuits from the now-defunct motorsport series, Super Speed Racing (known as Flag To Flag in the United States) was the first true racing simulator to grace the Dreamcast. And while not very well known outside of the NTSC localities, it is easily one of the most enjoyable open-wheel motor racing titles on the system. Super Speed Racing may look fairly basic by today’s standards, but back in 1999 it was leagues ahead of anything on the Nintendo 64 or Playstation in terms of looks, It isn’t as well known as the latter console’s Newman Haas Racing or the former’s Indy Racing 2000, but Super Speed Racing trumps them both in terms of that race day atmosphere, responsive controls and seat-of-thepants arcade thrills.
Many of the circuits are typical ovals seen in Us-based racing, but that’s not to say the races aren’t engaging and fun – and when played from the cockpit view the sense of speed is great. A superb example of an early Dreamcast racer done well.
[Dreamcast] Not the most visually stunning racer on the Dreamcast, but races can get very heated – just don’t hit the walls or other cars!
[Dreamcast] You get to race on real tracks against real drivers from the 1998 CART championship.
