    The quality of graphics between Virtua Racing and Star Fox was gigantic. Much more polygons, faster drawing, more speed and almost no slow downs. Virtua Racing was an incredible game to that time.
    Unfortunately lacked of just three courses. So the motivation was the speed permanently. It was a litte bit to much arcade style and i think for that price, this was a big disadvantage against Star Fox for instance. Star Fox couldnt match up to VR optic but it was the better game definitely.
    Whatever, i loved to play this title espacially in the multi player mode.

    Just for your information:

    THis game can be emulated.

    It runs realy nice on the genesis emulator for Gp2x Console (Picodrive)

    I think the cart for the Genesis actually plays better than the 32X version

    I disagree. I think the 32X version is WAY more fun. It almost feels like your in that original, "sweet jesus" 1993 V.R. cabinet.

    The only problem with racing games on 16 bit (32 bit considering 32x) is the lack of analog controls. While 2d style racing games (Outrun) are fine with d-pads, i find it severely lacking to drive a 3d game with such inaccurate controls.

    I don't see why analog control makes it better for racing games...

    I think it kinda depends on the game really, for arcade racers I'm fine with thumbsticks, as I think powersliding and drifting is way easier, but for some reason I just can't play Gran Turismo with anything other than the D-pad.

    Anyway, I must be remembering wrong, cause I coulda sworn that when I rented the genesis original that it got really choppy at some points. The 32x version was great though, I remember it was the second game I got for the system (the first being the craptastic DOOM).

    I should try and get ahold of this game some time. $10 is not a high price for one of the games that defied the "no 3D" claims often made about the Genesis, especially considering it was $100 when it launched. Also, I'd be able to save my Genesis the humiliation of having a 32x inserted into its cart slot.

    I agree with Jesse, this game is handled pretty well but the present tracks aren't enough to keep it enjoyable aside from casual and occasional plays.
