Tengen has finally revealed pics of Race Drivin', the arcade-polygon race game made by Atari. (Curiously, Tengen's first-ever Mega Drive game was Hard Drivin', the polygon racer that preceded RD.) Everything is shown in a first-person perspective straight out the windshield of your car. Although Tengen has made certain graphic improvements such as the use of texture mapping, in most regards this remains faithful to the classic arcade racer. Don't worry, the instant replay is still there.
It does look antiquated compared to the new generation of arcade racers like Daytona and Ridge Racer, but this is still a very decent simulator and should be worth a look. This is also in preparation for the PlayStation.
So, if you've enjoyed the coin-op or just want some thrills on a really twisted track, you'll enjoy Race Drivin'.
