A driving variation of Duke Nukem.

A great game I personally think. It was released in 1997 by SCi games and the graphics maybe a little raw, (even with the 3DFX support, it can crash quite often), but the sheer fun you can have of having a head-on collision at 150mph or plow into a bunch of women in bikini's is great. With over 30 cars to choose from, and many strange and wonderful tracks to drive on, such as causing mayhem in New York or go banger racing in a field with cows running all over the place. The vehicles to are also fun, like a Mercedes-Benz CL600 with caterpillar tracks to a Lada Riva monster truck. All cars can upgrade their specs., like upgrade a straight-six engine to a V12, add titanium studs, layers of shielding, once you have the money, which is gained from running people down, more if you get a "Splatter Bonus" or a "Pile Driver Bonus". The violent levels in it can be quite high, it isn't one to show for the children, hence having a well-deserved 18's cert. on it. Hours of fun for only €10. A good 9 out of 10 for this one.
