Some goon is trying to blast you outta the sky! Racing Aces from Sega combines the best of two worlds — dogfighting with everything from biplanes to cutting-edge fighter aircraft, and aerial racing that will leave you breathless as you bank at pylon towers that guide you through the course. This one-player disc has great 3-D graphics and one of the most interesting CD soundtracks to hit your stereo. You compete against a field of 30 rudder-busting dogfighters. With a wing and a prayer, you might just win the competition. But watch out for the cloud-busting granny. She's an ace.
Bring a Parachute
You get to fly warplanes from three eras—World War 1, World War II and the 1990s. Your goal as you race through the skies is to win... and try to blow your fellow pilots out of the air. If you or an opponent gets shot down, it's a long parachute ride to the ground. But you go back in the race from the shoot-down point—kills are in name only. As you rack up wins and prize money, you can buy better aircraft, soup up existing planes and purchase additional weaponry. You have 40 courses to fly, 12 fighters (three of them can be bought only from a shady black-marketer) and any of 30 pilots from which to choose.
The menu gives you options for three race types—a Test Track, where you learn the ropes in three legendary combat planes; Pre-Sea- son Racing, in which you go up against the other competitors; and the Racing Season, where you race all the tracks on the circuit in each era's planes. Each race garners you points and bonus money for shoot- downs, placing and good flying. With better equipment, you win more money. With more money, you get better equipment. This is the only way to fly!
