It is indeed a great game! I got the Genesis version first. Quite amazed about what the Genny could do. Later I got the 32x version which has best gameplay of all of them. Last (two years ago) I got the Saturnversion. It has more levels and a better two player mode. But It couldÂ´ve been much improved, since it looks very dated compared to other Saturn racinggames. Also, the gameplay wasnÂ´t quite up the the 32x one.
great game...and it was really inovative back then (but as far as I remember there was already a real 3D game on the Genesis, it was LHX Attack Chopper from EA, which I've been playing for months as I got it, it already used realtime 3D polygon grafik)
still Virtua Racing was lot's of fun on the Genesis and even more fun as I got it for 32X...was'n that the first game where you could choose between several views during the game?? But I didn't like the Saturn version....it was developed by Tiem Warner (as far as I remember) and by Sega any more...
whatever the only SNES game, which used real time 3D, that I can remember was
Stunt Race FX which realy sucked. The only thing that I didn't like in Virtua Racing was the lack of proper music, and those short jingles all the time realy got on my nerves ^^
Great game. I never was really very good at it, but it was always awesome in the arcade, especially with 2-player mode. Virtua Racing and Road Rash 2 are the only racing games I still play on the Genesis/32x - it seems like after Outrun came out, there was a dry spell of arcade racers for a long time until AM2 once again revolutionized the genre with this game (although Chase HQ was great as well).
