Full Title: Super Off Road
Year Released: 1993
Game Type: Racing
Max Players: 2

Super Off Road is a conversion of the arcade game with the same name and includes most of the arcade features. The game is a top down racer for 1 or 2 players who race around various tracks with 4 trucks on the track at the same time which makes for some competition in trying to get on the podium. While racing bags of yellow money appear and extra nitos which can be used to temporarily give a speed boost. Your winnings and any extra money you collected can be used to buy more Nitro's better acceleration, better speed, new tires and better shockers which will help you with a good chance of winning the next race.
The gameplay involes racing around a set of tracks to win money to use to supe up your truck for the next race. While on the track you can can bump the other trucks out of the way in order to help you get a chance of a high finish as different amounts of money are awarded to the top 3 winners.
The graphics are very good with lots of colour and are in keeping with the arcade that it's based on. The games attract screen's are in keeping with the arcade too.
Sound & Music
With a collection of different music tracks for different races and little sound effects of when money or Nitros are collected and used by you and other players. The tunes do try and replicate the same tunes from the arcade.
The controls are simple button 1 to accelerate and button 2 to blow a nitro the dpad is used to direct the truck. The controls are good and precise to allow you to enjoy the game. Ohh by the way when the game first starts instead of pressing button 1 to start the race.... Press button 2 for an option screen. I used the Sega Genesis/ MegaDdrive arcade power stick to play this.

Replay Value
There's 12 tracks to race on and some of these are more fun than others. 2 players can get into the action together and fight for the trophies together. With 1 or 2 players there is plenty of replay value here.
Games that are similar are micro machines RC grand Prix and buggy run as well. In my opinion this is way better than RC Grand Prix and much cheaper than buggy run and micro machines. Super off road offers a lot of gameplay and arcade features and action to keep you entertained for quite some time. Do your self a favour....plug Super Off Road into your Sega.
