A whole new dimension to the world of car racing! This game is great to release all that pent-up stress 😉 It was the first game that bought together big giant guns, and a new way to win a car race.
I remember playing this game on my 286. That damn Melissa cow would always get ahead of me in her crappy red car ROAR. Then I would get my biggest missile out and blow her clean out of existence! WOOHOO! Take that! Hehe, I loved this game so much. I never really was one for car games, but Deathtrack is just so much fun!
When you first start you can chose between three different cars, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Some are faster, yet some have heavier armor and can kick harder ass. All are rather funky and threatening though. You then can take your car to the shop and buy weapons or parts. There are some serious weapons, such as missiles, caltrops, mines, machine guns and terminators etc. In the parts shop you can get faster engines, wheels, armor etc.
There are 10 different tracks, in 10 cities. Some of them are at night, some during the day. I liked the variety, as there were enough different tracks, but also not too many, which allowed you to learn them rather well. The more you win, the more money you get. The more money you get, you can buy weapons and car modifications. You NEED to buy weapons, so that you can blast the other drivers off the track, and also defend yourself. Because the less drivers alive on the track, the less people that can fire a missile at you.
When you play this game you will definitely need a slow down app, this game runs way too fast on anything higher then a 286. (You don’t want to try playing this on a p3, mark my words 😉 hehe).
