MegaRace is a Sega Mega-CD racing/shooting game developed by Cryo Interactive Entertainment and published by The Software Toolworks. Despite being an European game (and being advertised in Europe), the Mega-CD version was only released in North America. It was given a supposed release date of May 1994 in the UK.[1]

Gameplay

MegaRace is a futuristic racing game set in a virtual world where the objective is either to win in a three-lap race or destroy all opponents on the track. It is one of several racing games produced around this period where tracks are represented entirely by full motion video - while the player can accelerate and break, it is not possible to "turn" your vehicle, with Left and Right merely adjusting its horizontal position on-screen.

In game music is not streamed off the CD, instead being generated by the sound chips of the Mega Drive.

History

Legacy

MegaRace was followed by MegaRace 2 and MegaRace 3 in 1996 and 2002, respectively.
