Combat Cars for SEGA Genesis

I donít even remember buying this one.  Those of you unfortunate enough to be on my contact list know Iíve been carpet bombing EBay with bids for months and we end up with things like this.

So, back in the early 90s, this meant something.





Interesting games back then.  Oh well.

Hereís the cool title screen.



And then you pick a racer and get a screen like thisÖ



Not sure what IQ has to do with the ability to hit a gas pedal and go vrrroooom but here we are.

And in a post Mario Kart and F Zero world, hereís the best we can do.




As always, there was a good game buried in here somewhere.  If you make one single mistake during the race, itís game over.

I don't recall ever playing that game, pretty sure I never heard of it till you texted me a screen shot.  I looked up a video on the tewbs, and it sort of reminds me of neo drift out/1000 mile rally, but overhead instead of isometric. Graphics look passable, tracks are varied enough (asphalt, dirt,snow,etc) I might load it up on the everdrive and see how well it plays. I need to get down there and load up the genesis RC Pro-Am game anyway.
If you're replying to a troll you are part of the problem.
I also need to follow this advice. Ignore or report, don't reply.

I gave combat cars a go, and you werent kidding, naff up a single turn and you'll be lucky to eek out 3rd place.  While I was down there, I loaded up Championship Pro-Am...


Biggest change between the NES version and the Genny is 5 CPU opponents instead of just 3. You also spell out CHAMPION instead of NINTENDO. Its the same basic game, prettier but if you dont collect every power up and every letter you'll loose early and often. I dont remember the NES version all that well but the CPU is still merciless and there isnt an ending, its just play the tracks on a loop till you run out of ammo and its game over. Still really fun and is what us old heads played before Mario Kart was invented.
