This game is amazing. Game mechanics are unheard of for 1995. This game requires skill to be good. I have been playing it for 20 years, and I still can't get first every race.
The combat in the race really feels like it effects your ship as there is engine and control damage. Meaning your speed and controls are constantly fluctuating and changing over time due to all of the combat. Also you racer doesn't explode, it tumbles through the air then goes back on track. You hear that there is no arbitrary respawn. When you ship explodes the race/championship is over. I haven't played any other game that mastered the subtle nuances of arcade racing so well.
I recommend this game to anyone that loves video games. It is a classic.
