Hey Stampede, how about a review?
28 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Another one of those games which never got the following it deserved. Your Groove Champion and you inherit your sisters old muscle car with which to avenge her death. Together with a guy called Taurus, you drive across the American southwest fighting against an army which is trying to take over the worlds oil supply, leading you eventually to the murderer of Grooves sister Jade.

As this is a car-combat game you'd fully expect the main focus of the designers would be to create only that, nothing more. When I first played this back in 1997 I realised it wasn't really the combat that won me over to this game, it was the way the vehicles drove, the open terrain in which you play and the atmosphere which made you feel like you were really in a desert and long way from anywhere.

The cars are based on actual vehicles, late 60s muscle cars, trucks and helicopters of the era in which the game is based - the mid seventies. And just to make sure you didn't forget, there's the ever funky disco soundtracks on your car radio!

Another great feature I loved at the time was the multi angle views of your car during play. It was a game which really gave you the impression there were no limits. In a time where most car games were severely restricted, Interstate 76 let us explore far from Tarmac to literally anywhere its possible for a car to go.

To conclude, this game is a gem, sincerely a one off, I don't think there's been another game quite like it since, and I doubt there ever will be. The sequel 'Interstate 82' is a complete disaster next to 76, and Vigilante 8 probably even worse, but I urge you to play 76 without judgement of its age.
