Though lacking the Official Nintendo Seal of Quality (the game is one of several unlicensed NES titles produced by Tengen), Super Sprint is a solid, if somewhat incomplete, port of the coin-op classic. The biggest drawback with the game is the absence of a three-player mode. Other, less egregious shortcomings include the lack of helicopter flyovers, reduced graphical detail (there are fewer trees and no spectators), and a simplified Winner's Circle screen. Also, the seven courses, though roughly patterned after those in the arcade game, are non-selectable. On a more positive note, two new obstacles have been introduced: exploding cones and hydraulic poles. Gameplay mechanics remain very similar to the original, and many players will find that the NES control pad is actually easier to use in steering the cars than the arcade wheel. Certain gamers less enamored with the cartridge will toss it aside in favor of a deeper, more "modern" NES racer such as R.C. Pro-Am. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
