F555, the most frustratingly realistic racer I've ever tried (just try playing with all the aids turned off without praticing much first). Oh and one other thing autobotguy "Transform and roll out" was Rodimus Prime in the movie, not Optimus Prime as in your sig (guess which film I watched recently).

Tokyo Xtreme is utter garbage, very bad physics and bad graphics, bumping into stuff does nothing, no effect, no swurve, its complete garbage. MSR.. some people like it, but it is no GT2 or 3.... I personally dislikes it also due to when u hit stuff... it's not very real. Sega rally=never played, but doesnt compare to the staurn version I am told and is probably not very good. I personally recommend getting ur hands on a GT2 bleempack.... it's the only way to really play. Yes I am told that ferrari game is VERY GOOD, but can get frusttrating/boring (a little too real :lol: ). but whatever u do, stay away from tokyo. It's utter cat piss.
Another great and interesting post brought to you by the DoughBoy!

P.S. I'm looking for A Turbo Express, PM me if you got one.

I picked up MSR for 3.00 bux at a garage sale... I liked it a lot. Probably my fav racing game on DC other than SF Rush...

Get a spare VM, get Bleemcast GT2, and a PSX Gran Turismo 2.

Sorted.

"Transform and roll out" was Rodimus Prime in the movie, not Optimus Prime as in your sig (guess which film I watched recently).

dude though he says it u should really know what ur talking about before u fuck with an autobot... jk but now optimus says it through out the entire series as well... u know there is more than a movie
though not everytime he said it it was exactlly quoted like that, it is how it started then variations IE...
Optimus - " Autobots, transform and meet me there"
Ironhide - " You heard him, roll out!"

and various others... just get it straight man im just trying to educate.

Its not hype. MSR is one of the best Driving games on the dreamcast if not THE best.

If you don't want that then Gran Turismo 2 Bleemcast is probably your best bet. Sega GT is similar but the car handling is horrible, its like driving a bowl of jelly(jello) every time.

If you just want plain fun go for San Francisco Rush 2049.. :o

That game is sweet
It's really sweet if your playing 2 ply or stunt or any other one...

I've played most of the games that you said.....

I kind of liked Tokyo racer...Kind of..The graphic's were good and everything but, There was no meaning to the game, you just drive around and beat your oponits....I'm more of the KILL KiLL KiLL type :D ( just kidding)


Like I said and many people think this game sucks but I say this game ROCKS---2049


Later
Hope this helps

Le mans is totally the best racing game on DC, not only for single player but for the 4 player mode, so you can crash all your mates. It has the good graphics and I believe it is the only racing game on DC that you can acually use the steering wheel properly on

Actually in the series any varient of "transform & roll out" was said by another autobot, and it was always something with the same meaning ex "transform & move out" but never that exact phrase, well in the original series anyway.

Test Drive Le Mans is the most grueling and engrossing racing game on DC. Just be sure you play it on the hardest setting for the most fun.
