Badlands

This variation on the Supersprint theme has the cars armoured, and armed.

But instead of enhancing playability, I feel this diminishes it by spoiling the racing aspect - after passing a human opponent, you often find yourself on the end of a missile!

That's if you can get past in the first place: overtaking is made difficult by the large size of the cars.

Despite these flaws, and the dull graphics, it plays okay in two-player mode. I reckon it was harshly dealt with (41%) in the original review.
