    Hi-Octane (ハイオクタン), known with the added subtitle as Hi-Octane: The Track Fights Back! in North America, is a racing game developed by Bullfrog which was released along with Sony PlayStation and PC versions for the Sega Saturn in 1996.

    History

    The Saturn port is widely regarded as the lesser of the three versions as it is more susceptible to slowdown and lacks texture-mapped models which are present in other versions. It was also unfortunate to be released just several weeks after Wipeout, which is considered to be the better game, both from technical and gameplay perspectives.
