The long drought is over for motorcycle racing fans. With Manx TT leading the way and several others nipping at its heels, including VMX from Virgin and Moto Racer GP from BMG, we finally have some two-wheel action for the 32-Bit systems.
Manx TT is an arcade port, sporting all the features of its arcade big brother and more, except for the stylish fiberglass motorcycle that your rump rests on. There are two primary tracks that feature long, gradual curves and lots of pretty scenery to look at (You can also race the tracks reversed and mirrored.) Playing Modes include: the new Saturn Mode, in which eight different high-powered super bikes can be used, and the traditional Time Trial and Arcade Modes. In Time Trial, a Ghosting Mode is also included so that you can race against your best time. Serious racers will be happy to know that the Saturn analog pad can also be used to upgrade the control.
This racing game is brought to us by AM3, the same fellows who created Sega Rally.
Manx is quite similar in gameplay characteristics and overall appearance to that hit game. Preliminary play revealed that Manx TT is quite fast and works well with the analog controller. With good gameplay and graphics thus far, perhaps Manx TT could join the ranks of the classic Saturn racing games.
The power of these superbikes was just too much to allow the home crowd to sit idly by as the coin-op fanatics raced their way through multiple levels at speeds over 200kph. MANX TT allows you to choose the course and the bike and to challenge other opponents in an extreme competition-based race. The terrain and altitude of the race offer some variety since they both change as you rocket through scenic levels in a third-person or a virtual-reality perspective.
Sega's Model 2 arcade motorcycle racer will be hitting the Saturn soon in all its glorious speed and smooth animation. The home version will have plenty of new features, like at least one brand-new, unique track and backward mirror tracks. Other features include two-player split-screen action and support for the Nights analog controller, for those tiny adjustments crucial for motorcycle driving. Sega also promises that the home version of Manx TT will have a few "Saturn enhancements" not found in the arcade game.
