Description of Mario Andretti's Racing Challenge

Nice 3D racer from Canadian racing game experts Distinctive Software. Features a fun career mode and a nice selection of different tracks and cars from Sprint Cars, Stock Cars to Formula One and Indy racers. I'm no fan of early 90's 3D polygons in racing games, but Mario Andretti offers pretty cool racing action for its time. a nifty little title that challenged racers to a variety of series and then allowed them to spend the resulting prize money as they rose through the ranks to "Championship Cars." The drive was only fair, even for the time, but six different car types. The game's best feature is undoubtedly the innovative "career path" option that tracks your progress from rookie to circuit champion-- a really cool feature for its time that was sadly not followed up on by later games.

Overall, a solid racer that offers a few new ideas and decent realism, if not earth-shattering. Anyone who enjoys the game should check out Andretti Racing, a sequel released in 1997.

They did make a sort of newer version for the Genesis/Megadrive however. I'd love a modern remake of this really. Way. Way ahead of its time and at least 20 years ahead of its time, too.

What I don't understand, is why nobody made a newer version of this game (even under a different name).
