Other fun old school racing games you have played

Postby potterman28wxcv » Tue Jul 14, 2015 7:45 am

Aside from Rollcage, I remember MegaRace 2 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkg4crjPpg0

To describe MegaRace in one word : MS-DOS :P

Aside from that, you had a vehicle and could fire some missiles. Every time you were hit, you were losing some armor, until your car was destroyed. I cannot really remember what happened then.. But it was more arcadish than really racing. You could bump the other cars like you would bump a ball in a flipper. As one of my very first racing games, well it was actually fun.

But there is also Ignition (the french name was Fun Tracks) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDVJHrwZZ-0

An awesome racing game in 2D. No weapon this time, but you could have environmental effects on the road. And as far as I remember this game was actually quite hard. Though, it was lot of fun :)

And you, which other fun racing games you have played ?

Check out the for the Rollcage Neo-mode Tournament 2017, starting 15th April !

OMG i remember Megarace! The f*cker was all in french and i couldn't understand a thing! But i remember every track, that damned tibet track with the ups and down, the foundry one... it was so polished for the time... with those cinematics that built up the expectations...

But i remember it had rocktes? I couldn't find them in the Lets play videos.. But damn those cars. I've played it when i was like 6 or 7 i don't know but i will never forget two things: the graphics and the part where the girl in the studio is wearing a metal suit and acts like a robot.

----------

Talking about racing games: Death Rally anyone? Do you know that the developers made a revised version that could be played without the dosbox? It's on steam too!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWTDQwF-aTc

Cars had health, miniguns, mines, bumper spikes, boosters, you could buy a sabotage for someone else and you had to buy upgrades to step up your game and race in higher leagues. You had to earn money by winning, or you could ask the loanshark which f*cked with you if you didn't give him his money back in three races, or you could earn decent money by having no damage on the car after a race, or by being always first for a few times, or by DESTROYING ALL OF THE OPPONENTS IN A RACE AND THE VEHICULAR GRIM REAPER CAME AND GAVE YOU MONEY AND I ALWAYS DID THIS UNTIL I HAD EVERY SINGLE UPGRADE CAUSE I LIKED TO BULLY THE OTHER RACERS WHEN I HAD TOP NOTCH WEAPONRY AND THEY WERE SCRAMBLING HELPLESS AROUND THE TRACKAHAHAHHAHAHHAHHAHHAHHA
And then you could earn serious money by picking up drugs along the track and then finishing first so you could give them to the smuggler guy before everyone noticed... good game.

Oh and during the race there were people along the track cheering and you could ram them or shoot them with the miniguns and they would turn into a blood splat along with a "aaaaaaaahhhh" sound. Good times...

Oh yeah? I'm so boring that

As well as Rollcage, i spent a lot of hours as a child playing 'Ridge Racer Type 4'.

There was some bizarre but wonderfully fast 'vehicles' you race against to unlock in the "Bonus mode" once you completed the actual Grand Prix career mode.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI49rK3snZs

Also, it had a ridiculously good soundtrack!

Motorhead?

I played that a lot as a kid, it's a good game. Gets pretty damn fast, too.

@Altair
ofc, i remember this game. I didnt had many psx games, but i had this. Why did you show the pc version, which has no music (actually you can fix the music on pc to get the original soundtrack back, but i was a bit complicated, not as easy as in rc redux or extrem...) I liked the music from it.
You will never forget this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYdo_KWe4Ws
Also one of the old games i couldnt beat at all (when i was young, now i have already played it through) but i had the cheat to unlock all the cars so i was happy :D
(when somebody wants to play it with music on pc, then pm me)

Now that you already mentioned re-volt, i can just think of Big Fun Funk-Flitzer (dont know whether it has also an english name or even version), but it was my first game i ever played on the pc. Got the cd from an mickey mouse magazine.

@Tiakh yes the main menu theme is just perfect :) I had to listen it again! Unfortunately I played only pirated PC version :oops: --> game was released in 1999...but in Poland in 2003 :cry:
Now I could only said sorry to the developers...

For a while Re-Volt was on gog.com


Edit:
Just corrected some typos.

Not sure if it counts, but NFS took a huge role in my childhood. The Underground series, to be exact. :)

One game a played ALOT (or series of that matter) Were the shotoku battle series (Tokyo Xtreme Racer) My absolute favorite is drift 2 because of the mountain passes. The game looked beautifull. I still play it (have the CD still) often. The game was legit hard tho and no game has yet filled its void because theres nothing like it, Alot like rollcage in fact!

Someone mentioned POD: Planet of Death?
No?
okay erm there was this game called POD in PC in 1997 and it was GOD DAMN f*cking AWESOME!
Physics were flawed but fun, you had 32 tracks (!) to choose from (that also could be raced reverse!) and a lot of vehicles to choose from with their own behaviour and quirks.
You could customzie your vehicle stats before racing to optimze em for the tracks and every tracks was unique in term of artstyle and character.

The game also had a story:
Planet Io is dying, people already left and the few poor souls left race for their lives to determine who gets the last shuttle.
Driving through the dark and destroyed enviroments combined with the eerie music made this game very special IMO.

If you want to check it out there are some videos on YT and you can get it for cheap (inc. Add-On) on gog.com.
