9 April 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Even today, I consider this game a true classic and is as playable as ever. I often start it up, using MAME32, and spend a little time doing some driving. The music is the timeless classic it has always been, and brings me back to the late eighties when I used to play this game down at the arcade in 1987-88.
