Anything Sega can do, Namco can try to do better! So, last year Sega created Sega Rally--an "off-road" racing game and Namco is now readying Dirt Dash for production.
Featuring incredible graphics, thanks to Namco's Super 22 System board, DD brings not only near perfection to the visual realism of racing, but they now have also taken the physical feel of driving to the max. Not only does this game feature tactile feedback through the steering wheel (like we had in OutRun), but the sit-down version actually bounces you left and right and up and down as you swerve around corners and drive over rocks and other debris.
In the version that we played, there are a total of five tracks (snow, town, hills, jungle and cliff) containing some of the most treacherous roads--if you want to call them that--you have ever seen. To get you through the race, you have your choice of several different vehicles. Whether it is a buggy, sports car or pick-up truck, the driving will still be the same--intense, mwhite-knuckle, high-speed thrills fact, we liked it so much, our editors picked DD to be the best racing game at the recent Tokyo JAMMA arcade show. Now if we can only convince Namco to bring the game out over here in the States!
