View Full Version : Jaguar XJ220
When you think of the Sega CD, you don't immediately think of racing games. There aren't all that many, and not all of what's available is worth looking into. That's unfortunate really, because a few, like JVC's Jaguar XJ220, are quite playable. We have a full review (http://sega-16.com/review_page.php?id=1112&title=Jaguar%20XJ220) for you, so read up and see if this one's worth tracking down.
What relation does XJ220 have to the Lotus games? They look very similar

Nothing that I know of.

I used to love this game. Looking back on it, it's not so much... but the music I really liked (at the time, now it just seems cheesy). I remember the really tight curves (how your car would lock in place during the turn) and the weather effects, especially rain. Wasn't one of the songs called Speed-E? or Indigo? (can't remember). It could get pretty fast at top speed in the way that only sprite-based driving games can.

I also loved this game as the XJ220 is one of my all time favourite cars, I was damn excited when it came out! Until now I had completely forgotten about this game, it is now added to my must buy list!:D

Nice Game, Lotus Trilogy is also nice and has great music (on CD32).

i liked this game i always had the highest scores it was an easy game but the curve system made it but more realistic,you think you can curve with like 200kmh??? naah only in burnout,its just a bit realism and still makes it more chalenging then just a race trought game like burnout,the graphics have nice scaling on them but you don't even notcis the caling due the decent use of colour.
I never owned it but rented this a lot. I still remember the look on my Super Nintendo loving friend seeing this game in motion for the first time. He was just speechless! Just remembering that makes me want to play it again...

I like XJ220 - I think the only thing that turned me off was the hairdryer engine sound effect, it really contrasts with the smooth, synthy soundtrack :)
