What are some good non-Mario Kart retro racing games?
love Didly Dong Racing. Still own it
I played the hell out of this game.
Especially with the Madcatz steering wheel.
Good times on multiplayer. Much of its appeal for me was beating the shit out of other people and being chased by the police while racing .
I love diddy kong racing.
This game still stands up extremely well to this day. I still play 2 player sessions with my mate and it gets real intense.
This level is our personal favorite, really tests your driving skills and you can get some really sick drifts which are a lot of fun to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byxZGMq-W6o&t=7m18s
Each vehicle has a different feel to it and most are very fun to drive
DKR. The beginning is much easier, didn't lose a single race for ages on my first try but the different racing formats and pretty shitty power ups make it way more difficult after a while, and beating the bosses can be quite tough.
Could never beat Greenwood Village, admittedly I gave up rather easily though.
MK64 is a piece of piss in comparison.
Alright, here's a list of some very important and amazing racers. Go get em.
- Rad Racer 1 + 2 (NES)
- Top Gear 1, 2, 3000 (SNES)
- F-Zero (SNES)
- Extreme G 1, 2
- California Speed
- San Francisco Rush, Rush 2, Rush 2049
- Cruis'n' usa, world and exotica
- Top Gear Rally, Top Gear Rally 2, Top Gear Overdrive
- Beetle Adventure Racing
- Automobili Lamborghini
Just a small list of some really fun racers. Some of my personal favorites and important for anyone's collection. Nice variety of futuristic / sci-fi racing to sports racers to ridiculous racers and some kid / family fun / comfy racers.
