Tired of racing games where all you do is drive fast around a track? Try Combat Cars for the Sega Genesis, a game that has as much to do with weapons as it does wheels. Before you begin a race, you must choose from eight different mean-machines, each of which has a different driver and a different weapon. The weapons are: Glue Globs, an Oil Dumper, Anti-Auto Mines, a Power Shotgun, Thick Smoke, Heat-Seeking Missiles, and a couple of Hydro Boosts.
After each race and each lap, the top three finishers are awarded prize money which can be used to improve a car's performance, enhance its weaponry, and upgrade its tires. You can play Combat Cars by yourself against the five computer-controlled competitors or let a friend join in for some two-player split-screen action. Or you can battle it out with your friend in the Head-to-Head mode. Viewed from a top-down perspective, Combat Cars features 24 tracks in all sorts of terrain ranging from city streets to country roads to mountain trails. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
