The Nintendo 64's first racing title is a conversion of 1994's coin-op game by Midway Games. As in the quarter-munching original, the object is to travel across the continental U.S. in a series of 14 point-to-point races. Two play modes include "Single Race" and "Cruise the USA." The former offers a choice of ten individual courses, while the latter includes the entire cross-country trip. Four non-licensed sports cars and three bonus vehicles are available to drive. As you travel from California's Golden Gate Park to Washington, D.C., you'll view such landmarks as Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, and the White House. Eight computer-controlled drivers are your primary competition in each race, as you carefully weave through traffic-filled highways spanning multiple lanes. Options consist of five difficulty settings, two transmission types, multiple controller configurations, and customizable traffic. Head-to-head racing is also available via split-screen display. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
