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 ?

TOP GEAR 2 review for Super Nintendo
Added by: CGR Undertow

 Defender II - NES
"The music clips and sound effects are straight out of many other Nintendo first party games. Punch Out, being a major one. HAL knows how to get good performance out of the NES, that's for sure. The game itself is a solid version of Defender, so what you see is what you get." - erdrick

 Sanctum 2 - PC
"Not fun in my opinion. Weapon handling is mediocre and the controls feel like they are from a watered down console port. Worth 5$ or less to me." - silkynoah

 Syphon Filter - PlayStation
"Fairly enjoyable but hasn't aged well in my opinion. Controls feel sloppy and the story is a bit bland. It spawned an excellent franchise though!" - silkynoah

 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist - Xbox 360
"The perfect mash up of old and new Splinter Cells. Play anyway you like! Definitely recommended for any stealth genre fan." - niko

 Thunder Spirits - Super Nintendo
"Not as good as Thunder Force 3 but it's still fun." - airzonkworldchamp
