Game Play

First, choose your vehicle: a sedan, a station wagon, or a truck. Then select a course and race through the roads of Japan, The United States, or Europe. Drive through city streets, highways, and winding country roads. Race to reach checkpoints and earn bonus time. Avoid pedestrians and obstacles that suddenly appear. Accidents will cause you to lose time and have your ratings go down. You must also look out for cops and speed traps. After the game, your driving skills are analyzed and displayed. Your driving is evaluated on your reflexes, desire, style, courage, manners and IQ.
