By:João Diniz Sanches

Foreword:Bruno Senna

Starting with a history of racing games, and split into decades highlighting the major arcade, PC and console releases for that period, this book acts as a history, a buying guide and a practical manual, with sections on driving technique, car set-up/tuning, and the benefits of force-feedback steering wheels/simulators.

Re-Volt

Re-Volt is a remote-control car “simulator” that combines a convincing physics model with arcade elements to create one of the better racing games.

The control pad is a little touchy, so it is probably a better idea to steer with the digital pad. The cars react to the tracks just like their real-life remote control counterparts do: flipping off curbs, absorbing suspension-jarring jumps, and bouncing off competing cars. The tracks are also realistic, letting players race through grocery stores, museums, neighbourhoods and the like. Acclaim even threw in a track editor so intrepid racers can design their own courses.

Don’t think that you can outrace the competition by simply droning around the track. Winning requires a combination of driving skill and a mastery of the game’s myriad weapons, including oil slicks, bombs, bottle rockets and water balloons. The weapon effects do much to enhance the game’s graphical appeal, which is immense to begin with. –T Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Realistic physics
  • Slick graphics
  • Track editor

Cons:

  • Controls are hard to get used to

Please Note: If you have not used an RC car before we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the controls prior to use. We do not recommend the use of RC cars in confined spaces or domestic environments. Your model is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty; however this does not cover damage to parts, due to driver error or loss of control. Like its full size counterparts; an RC car has its own sacrificial parts which are designed to save additional components from damage. These inexpensive items are engineered to fail first and are commonly available. In simple terms, accidental damage is not covered by the warranty.
