This game is incredible. You have the controls of a real powerhouse of a car, which is more of a tank really. With your monster Death Racer you have to negotiate your way round a ruined city, with the vehicles on the road doing their best to knock you off the road and break you into little pieces. You also have the option to pick up weaponry, which makes it a little easier to deal with the other cars on the road, which are basically your sworn enemies.
The controls are very simple, just using the left and right arrows to steer in those two directions, and the up and down arrows to speed up and slow down. This makes it very easy for you to concentrate on the important job of surviving the race and winning. The ability to pick up weapons really makes for a fantastic experience and one that should make it very easy to become addicted.
