No Boulder Canyon from Diddy Kong Racing?

Now THAT’S seriously a bad ass track which the track being tight ermakes it even more of a butt kicker especially yours if you so much as hit a wall.

You need some serious skills to navigate the tight turns and changes from water to land on that track.

The fun part is a castle which you can seriously screw your opponents up if you raise the drawbridge at the right time then they have to go the long way around. Hope it isn’t you! :)

The coarses are real technical circuits that throw everything at you. In a way they follow increadibly fanciful F1 style designs that test out the versatility of the crafts. Due to the limitations of the hardware the tracks can be a bit tight in a Monaco kind of way, but that just added to its character, after all people love Monaco for a reason. I’ld say the best are from the game are:

1 Odessa Keys
2 Gare d’Europa
3 Sagarmatha

Oh and the last two tracks are out of the world insane. Great way to end the game but don’t make to top 3 because they can kind of feel like navigating a helicopter in a building.

Although graphics have evolved so much, the feeling of driving a car has never been more realistic than in those two coinops!

That game was a joke.

Tut tut.
