Crazy CarsSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Following in the style of Out Run, Crazy Cars gives you the chance to get behind the wheel of four different high performance sports cars: Mercedes SL, Porsche Carrera, Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari GTO. You have to drive as fast as you can to get from Florida to Malibu through six stages within a specific time limit. You start with the sports Mercedes racing against all those other cars you would rather be driving. Not only are the steep turns and the opponent fast cars to contend with but the road also has dips and bumps of varying heights. When you get onto those bumps your car jumps into the air losing traction and speed. Completing each track is not really difficult and it doesn't need too much practice. After completing the sixth course you step into the next car and race over the same courses but this time within a decreased time limit! Well, Crazy Cars doesn't really offer anything new to the genre, rather than the feature to drive different cars upon completing all stages. Its successors, Crazy Cars II and Crazy Cars III are the ones that made some difference I think!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The DOS version supports only CGA graphics that look quite nice though they lack the colors of the other 16bit counterparts. The sound on the PC is adequate with just a few sound effects.
