A 12 year old could probably create something more appealing then this. I'm surprised there is even a game like this that exists... I was so shocked I had to do some research on it. Apparently when It first came out in stores it cost somewhere around $20... I would have been PISSED if I bought it. :lol:

Wikipedia wrote:Upon completion of the race, the player is presented with digital representation of a large three-handled trophy and the text "YOU'RE WINNER !". The game occasionally fails to distinguish between whether the player is starting or finishing the race when they pass through the starting point, and so this congratulatory screen may appear within seconds of starting a game, ending the race before it even begins.


Wtf? Did they all get fired after the first 3 days and decide to release the game anways?

You need a patch if you watch the opponent's truck to move.. rofl. And the reverse thing was totally awesome! Why does this game give me such an urge to buy it? Having this game is like owning a piece of important video game history.

Eh I think that's a pretty close assumption to what happened... I read somewhere that it was released in it's pre-alpha stage... But the question is "WHY?!?!" What could possibly possess ANYONE to do that?

Yea.. they were either geniuses, or morons. Perhaps they counted on it being given a lot of attention as "the worst game ever" and therefore selling over 20,000 copies, or perhaps they were just plain stupid.

This guy says it all:
Few times in history has a product been so bad that they are not worth the materials they are made out of. For software, this is never the case. All the value is in the software, not the CDs themselves. But, today, I will tell you of a game that managed to make the plastic and cardboard far more valuable than their contents.

Here's the rest of what he said about it.

I guess that's what happens when you outsource everyone on the team.

Hmmm... this game defines the term Epic Fail, not that we even need another racing game that has nothing special in it.

This is my favorite game ever, because it makes me know that I'M WINNER!
