If you're looking for a game that combines awesome racing action with brutal combat, then look no further than Combat Cars. In this hybrid style of racing, anything goes, ramming, shooting, or just outrunning the competition, as you vie for the top prize on 24 grueling tracks. You'll be racing through mountain ranges, congested urban settings, and sandy beaches as you challenge your opponents to a duel like no other. There are eight vehicles to choose from, each equipped with its own arsenal of devastating weapons: missiles, mines, oil slicks, bullet blasts, and glue globs. If you're lucky enough to win a few races, you'll be able to upgrade your arsenal or your performance with things like turbo boosts, mega tires, and souped-up engines. Strap in and get ready for the race of your life with Combat Cars.
Looking for a little arcade-style racing? Test-drive Combat Cars from Accolade for the Genesis. This one-or two-player (split screen) over-head-view racer has weapons, power-ups, and eight characters with unique cars. You get to drive on 24 tracks—stuff like beaches, mountains, snowtops, cul-de-sacs, and downtown streets. Winning gives you prize money to spend on better parts. This cart may not win prizes for racing accuracy or inspired graphics, but it does offer some lightweight fun. Try it with a friend—competition adds a little zing—if you can deal with the compressed split screen.
- Save your weapons for the later laps...they add up and you can wail.
- Pulse the accelerator rather than using the breaks.
- Choose a character with higher handling ability at the outset
