To shed light on both titles, allow me to blog to you about these two games. Videos are provided for educational purposes.
Cars.Every car featured in this game are all classic automobiles. Beautiful classic cars are featured in this title from many established motor racing marques. Classic cars from the likes of companies like Ferrari, Porsche, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, and more are featured in this game. Every car sounds beautiful with a sweet engine roar.
Graphics and Racing.The graphics are absolutely beautiful. The sense of speed is incredibly scary for a 2D racing game. You blast through cities and country roads in your racing of the Mille Miglia. You need to be alert at all times. The turn(s) you need to make appear as an arrow, This arrow appears for about half a second, meaning you need to quickly remember what corner is coming up and take it on effectively. You need full concentration to make the most of each stage. Effects like rain, thunderstorms, clouds rolling by, and fires are all done amazingly well.
The first stage takes you from Brescia to Verona. The other 11 stages will all test your reflexes and racing skill. Don't be passive- go flat out and race hard!
This is a video demonstration of this challenging game (Evolution Model):
I told you that this game was crazy! Now you see WHY!
I must personally say that while this new style of play makes this game exciting, the classic character of the original title was completely destroyed in this game. The game was taken from a traditional rally-style racing game and turned into a no-holds-barred racing game with plenty of radio comments. I think it just takes away from the classic character of the previous game. Even though the classic character of the first game is mostly destroyed with this title, this is still a fairly exciting game.
I must say I'm disappointed character-wise with this game as opposed to the previous title, but I'll leave that up to you to debate with this video. I STRONGLY recommend you check out the first video to understand what I'm talking about. If you have seen the first video, compare the experience in the previous video with the experience provided in THIS video:
So what do you think? Which is better?
Both games are little-known or forgotten. They are one of at least 80 or so games I've mentioned in an old blog post called "Little-Known or Forgotten Racing/Driving Games." See the MASSIVE list of titles I've felt are little-known or forgotten by checking out that blog post.
