Touring Car Racer

0 of 0 people found the following review helpful
At first, Touring Car Racer looks promising. It's based on one of the most exciting forms of motorsport around, with official cars of the time. The title screen is colourful and the car selection screen is well designed with detailed drawings of the various machines available. Sadly that's all the good things that can be said about TCR.



As soon as the race itself is started, the poor quality of the game engine becomes apparent. The graphical detail is lacking with solid colour skies, basic cars and no trackside furnishings. Some bushes and a grandstand in the distance are all the game has to offer. The scenery in each of the four tracks is near identical.



It's manual gearbox only, but once you've started the race and accelerated up to fifth gear, you won't need to change down for the rest of the race. There is an invisible wall either side of the track preventing you from leaving the road but driving into it I was still travelling at a speed of 176 (I assume kp/h). Turn the right way and you'll make most corners without lifting off the accelerator.



The sound in the game is atrocious. It initially sounded like some awful music but the tune was in sync with the speedometer meaning it was engine noise. Comparing it with the speed is the only way to know that, because it does not sound like any engine I've ever heard.



Touring Car Racer is a terrible game that attempts to disguise beneath pretty presentation. Avoid!
