Its pretty rare that a racing game comes out which is different enough to perk my interest. While Im not the worlds biggest racing fan, I do enjoy the scent of a freshly burned patch of rubber every now and then. Unfortunately, with the overabundance of driving games available on practically any system out there, the genre seems to have become quite over saturated from where Im standing.
Game Description: Rumble Racing is over-the-top combat meets NASCAR-style racing in this brilliant blend of two unlikely styles. In Championship mode, you’ll duke it out with other cars in a series of heats to determine who wins the five championship cups at stake. Along the way, you’ll unlock 12 of the 15 tracks that can be played in Single Race mode. Completing Championship mode will earn you the right to try your hand at Stunt mode, a timed event in which you must pull off crazy tricks. There are plenty of weapons and power-ups to keep the combat junkie happy, and the racing action is superb.
Game Description: Your name is Bond—James Bond. You've got a stable of specially equipped licensed cars from the Bond universe that have been prepared with weapons and gadgets from MI6's infamous Q branch. 007 Racing for PlayStation delivers to game players a unique Bond experience that features over 15 missions of pursuit, evasion, protection, surveillance, and termination—all inspired by unforgettable moments from Bond films. Missions in 007 Racing take place within a new story line that's inspired by scenes and moments of the more memorable Bond films. Also, players will be assisted by—and pitted against—famous characters from Bond films. The game's multiplayer mode offers intense peer-to-peer combat racing.

Electronic Arts, granted the license from MGM, took notice of Bond's affinity for fast cars, and 007 Racing
was born. Unfortunately for Electronic Arts and its developer, Eutechnyx, every release that followed Rare's brilliant GoldenEye 007
has proven that the license can only carry a game so far. 007 Racing
is a game that barely carries its license and succeeds only in driving it into the ground.

007 Racing's developer, Eutechnyx, puts the following tag line underneath their logo: "Advanced gaming science." If 007 Racing is any indication of this pretentious moniker, than it's wrong on all counts.

In that case, developer Tose Software did a superb job of recreating the Gran Turismo effect on Dreamcast. Sega GT plays the same, looks the same and sounds the same as its PlayStation counterpart. Of course, Sega GT is able to take advantage of Dreamcast's superior processing power, so the cars and environments look more realistic and less grainy than they would on PlayStation. Aside from that however, it's hard to believe this game wasn't developed by Polyphony Digital.
Game Description: The car workshop in Sega GT lets you build your dream car from the ground up. You'll choose between thousands of options and hundreds of styles to make the car that best suits your driving habits and personality. But there are 130 prebuilt classic and current sports cars if you'd rather just jump in and drive. Each car is modeled for precise look, handling, and performance. Once your car is set, take it into competition through five racing seasons on more than 20 courses. Go against the smart-driving computer opponents or take it head-to-head with a friend via the game's split-screen mode. Be sure to plug in your Dreamcast-compatible racing wheel for the ultimate in driving simulation.

The appeal of Sega GT extends beyond any sort of admiration I may have for Gran Turismo, because it is quite the opposite. It would seem that I am one of the two percent of gamers who actually dislike Gran Turismo. I have never been a fan of the silly tests and other hoops that Polyphony Digital forced me to jump through just to gain access to certain cars—especially ones that perform only marginally better than the last one I owned.
