n64gm165 - Developed by Electronic Arts Canada, Paradigm Entertainment Inc. and Published by Electronic Arts, Inc., "Beetle Adventure Racing!" was released for the Nintendo 64 (N64) Entertainment System on March 24, 1999. This is a 3rd-person perspective an arcade-style racer that incorporates an element of exploration and adventure. Choose from the latest Volkswagen "Beetle 2.0" classics, from straight street to off-road models, and compete on many different track types. If you are sharp you can seek out shortcuts in order to get ahead of other racers and reach the end first, moving on to the next track. If you're trailing near the end you can also use nitro boosts to jump ahead and win. The graphics are gorgeous and often rival many arcade racing games, displaying none of that haze effect on the horizon that we've grown accustomed to with other games. Even with the immense sense of speed on display in Beetle Adventure racing, the picture stays very smooth while maintaining a excellent frame rate throughout. The game control in Beetle Adventure is features excellent car physics and is very intuitive, especially helpful on the long, well-designed tracks. There are some nice little touches in this game, such as the ability to win new tracks and cars by coming in first in the championship mode. The game also features numbered boxes that are positioned strategically on its tracks, and if you can collect all these boxes, they open up cheats and other extras in the game menu. If you need some help, you can also practice in the single and also in the race option. You can play alone against the excellent AI computer or race against a friend in the multiplayer (2-player mode). If you have more friends, you can race it out in the special Battle Mode challenge where you collect flags and also battle with weapons such as rockets and mines. My analysis? Beetle Adventure racing is a remarkably well developed N64 game that is also a great challenge, a lot of fun and very delightful.
