This game is not half as bad as people make it out to be. The smooth graphics and framerate really make this game shine. If you play on a computer that has less then the required specs, don't go for it. Game does seem to have a mind of its own going faster then the car can drive at times. Its probably the VSYNC I have disabled. Don't like the fact that it's missing it's licensed sound track that made it famous in the arcade (The Offspring) Original PC release had it's soundtrack replaced too. Licensed properties such as Foot Locker, KFC, Tower Records have all been replaced by generic names. Makes the game less notable. I would get it if it's part of a sale.

This has always been a fun game and I looked forward to playing a classic on PC. Pick up tricky customers against the clock and race across the city to deposit them (on time) and collect their fare, then race off for the next. Collect as much money as you can and try to earn your Class A license.

Great - except, on PC, forget it. :(

There are inexplicable lags and frame-dropouts. The game will have momentary freezes throughout. I should mention that I have an overclocked i7-4930K (12 logical cores), 6Gb Titan Black and 16Gb DDR but the performance is as reported in the forums - strangely poor). It doesn't make a lot of sense. However, this would be tolerable if it wasn't for the wrecked controls...

Sega have mapped the controller to digital keys for this (bad) PC port. There is no analogue control via gamepad, so touching the control stick lurches the car sharply full left or right (no gradual or easy turns), making it impossible to weave through traffic. There is NO gain in using a gamepad for this game whatsoever, and on/off digital controls merely give full 90-degree turn or no turn. Horrible.

It's a shame because this game has always been one of those entertaining lightweight games that was pretty flawless on console, but there is no joy to be found in this PC port. Avoid if you have the game on any other format (console and Android versions are much better).

Despite the lack of analog steering and branding on the buildings and the original soundtrack it's a good arcade game that manages to soothe the nostalgia from the Dreamcast arcade racer. By the way, you can mod the soundtrack into the original one, check the guides!
