Choose a remote control car from a set of boxes like the ones in your local toy store, and off you go in this fun racing game. You can race against human or computer opponents in a series of challenging races, or you can opt for the all together more fun two player games - the best of which is a tag game where each player starts off in a different part of the same level. You then have to both hunt for the 'tag' and grab it by driving over it. Then the clock starts to count. Once you have maintained possession of the 'tag' for two minutes, you win the round. Hitting, or even passing extremely close to an opponent changes possession of the 'tag'.

Sound simple, and it is, but it's also fiendishly addictive. Throw in a few weapons for good measure, and before you know it you have been playing for hours.

The racing games are fun, but pail into insignificance next to the Battle Tag mode.

Additional playability is given by the easy-to-use, and flexible, track editor that lets you create your own levels. But there are plently of well designed ones as standard for you to race, before you need to rely on the editor.
