Power up for the best 64 race game yet.
Well you must be feeling on top of the world right about now. You've driven
your Ferrari across California in record time, ridden rough shod over some of the
gnarliest Moto Cycle Cross courses in the world, hell you've even decimated an
entire air force at the request of the US Navy.
But now let's see the TRUE stuff that you're made of. Yep, this time Sega have
cooked up a real tough one for you - we've put you in for the Power Drift league.
We've heard a lot of good reports about your driving skills but can you handle
a hot rod with a souped-up engine and the heart of a 4x4? Sure you can, but
be warned, you're not the only out there with the need for speed.
Power Drift is played over five different courses with five different circuits
to be found in each course. At the start of the game any course can be chosen
and any one of 12 drivers can be chosen from to take to the hot seat.
Revving up at the start with the other 11 all around you it's now or never. Putting
the pedal to the metal, 224 km/h worth of engine roars up and the opponents
eat your dust.
Round the first bend, you deftly slam the car into high gear and the others
are far behind. Taking the second bend doesn't leave much paint left on your car,
but what the hell? - this buggy can put with a lot of damage.
Only one head-on collision with a sign, tree, post, or another car can spin
this baby off the road.
Woah! Over a ramp you go and the car is flying! Back
down to the earth and the buggy is really roaring alond now with the tyres smoking
round the corners. Past the start line again and it's the second of four laps
underway. Uh oh, here comes a dawdling car but he's moving so slow he looks like
he's going backward and YOU'RE GONNA GET HIM!!!!
Spinning off the road is new experience which you can do without and now
you're down to fourth place - if you don't end up in the top three then you're
out of the race and can find your own way home mate! Those rival cars sure are
fast and like you they take those bends with no thought for safety; theirs or
When you burn past that third-placed driver, show him what you think of his
driving with a 'suitable gesture'. (Wadd'ya mean it ain't suitable for a family
mag like this, just do it!).
Those high rides sure are fun but don't forget that you're talking stratosphere
in height so don't wander too near the edge of the road unless you want to fly. It's
not an F-14 this time boy!
Lap three follows and lap four begins - you're in second place and the leader
is burning around the course, over hills, round twisting bends, and under bridges.
No time to admire the scenery, even if does remind you of relaxing palm beaches.
Just go flat out!
The computer controlled leader crosses the line and is displayed in all his
glory as 1st just to rub it in. Never mind second is respectable but no time for
a breather - it's off to the second course and after that another three more.
This time watch out for the slight gravity going round corners - the effect is
gonna get a heack of a lot stronger so get practising now or else. With all
these hills, bumps, and bends you're in for a bone-shaking roller coaster ride.
Complete all five circuits and the next course beckons. Fancy turbo-ing around the
bridge course or rocketing through the plam beach cirucits, or how about a desert
burn up with your hair blown back (who needs hair dryers?!). Take your pick of
the next course and change the driver if you want, but go all out to win that
trophy! GO FOR IT!
