Well now, this one looks A LOT better then the prequel. This one I could play.

My brother and I had this game when we were kids and I still have it CIB to this day. It was one of the better racing games on the SNES, fast, fun, upgradable cars, good graphics, just a blast to play. My only complaints are the lack of other car models to race as and maybe more tracks, otherwise it's super fun and a must own for anybody that has a SNES.

tidusantuna33, I would recommend it. It's simple and fun. You can upgrade your cars tires, engine, suspension, etc which makes your car faster and handle better and I think you can change the color of your car. It's very arcadey but in a very good way, the controls are tight, and the graphics while not mind blowing are nice and have held up well over the years. If you have a SNES yeah, I'd say pick this one up for sure.
I've never played the original or this one. Looking at this game from a modern perspective, would you recommend me playing this game ? I'm indifferent about racing games. I like playing them but, if I don't play them, I wouldn't care either.
This game is so simple and straight forward. It's like a 16 bit version of Enduro for the Atari 2600. There is only one model of car, but you can change color and buy upgrades that end up making your car much faster and sturdier. I think the simple to pick up and play yet hard to master gameplay (try to win all races on the higher difficulty level) and the upgrades are what make this game so addicting. It's actually to this date one of my favorite racing games.

I've never played enduro for the Atari 2600. Seeing as you have played this game, would you recommend someone with neutral interest in racing games to play this ?

 River Raid - Atari 5200
"During the early 80s, this was the game to play. I'm a big fan of the game, but it is rather repetitive. I actually had this version of the game, so I was a bit disappointed that the improvements were very slight. However, this is a fun game to play!" - dschult3

 DeadLight - Xbox 360
"Great game get it while its free on xbl!" - harris77

 River Raid - Atari 5200
"The game looks awesome. Too bad the label is destroyed!" - leoabreu

 Sega Saturn Racing Wheel - Sega Saturn
"What I love about this wheel that I think most people haven't pointed out is that you can put the wheel in between your legs while sitting on the couch. You then cause use the stand to hold with your legs so you get maximum confort while playing and no hunching over to the table. Most racing games work better with this wheel. Make sure to look up what games work well with it first before you purchase any games for it." - Truxton4life

 River Raid - Atari 5200
"For the first time in forever, the 5200 version of a game is better than it's 2600 counterpart" - bendrowned33
