Cyberspeed -- Mindscape

Zoom around nine futuristic courses at supersonic speeds in your choice of eight unique ships. Power-ups provide you with everything from speed boosts, to the all important shooting weapons. Just remember you'll want to keep a short line through the course in more ways than one. Cyberspeed from Mindscape is for play on the Sony PlayStation.

A entertaining futuristic racer with some cartoonish graphics and a typical techno soundtrack. The sprites are nice and large, the action is decent, and the sound is all right. Some of the nuances are nice, but the challenge of flipping your ship to the opposite side of the curves wore thin after about an hour. It is no WipeOut, but then again - what is?

A unique twist in a driving game... it's to bad that they hid the instruction on how to actually drive the vehicle in the middle of a paragraph in the middle of the manual! Once I figured out that you have to keep your car on the inside of all of the turns I suddenly did a lot better. The music is pretty good, as are the graphics. Play control is pretty good as well (granted you can figure it out). The commercials between levels were cute and the game overall was entertaining. If you're into "hover-car" racing games, be sure to give this one a look, and be sure to read the manual before playing.
