Put your pedal to metal and try to be the first to the finishing line. Roadsters is an arcade style racing game that is easy to get to grips with. If you fancy a high-octane racing experience, then Roadsters is the game.

Roadsters can be a four-player game and the multi-player mode is one of its best features. Because the game responds well and the cars stick to the road, the races are always close and that adds to the tension of racing. Although Roadsters is initially easy, when you win races and money you can buy new cars and upgrades. The game becomes progressively trickier as you make your way through the ranks and open up the harder variants of the courses.

Sometimes courses have multiple routes that you can take on your way to the finish. Learning where these shortcuts are can help significantly towards that all-important win. The tracks also become available to race in reverse when you have enough wins under your belt. There are over 30 different cars to choose from, including racing thoroughbreds like TVR's.

The computer-controlled cars will not give you any leeway whatsoever, in fact they tend to do the opposite. We’re not talking friendly nudges here, but full-on 'I want to see you in that wall and I’m going out of my way to make sure that’s where you end up'. It’s a shame that you can’t return the favour.

Out of all the versions of Roadsters available, the Sega version is the best looking. It doesn’t push the Dreamcast's capabilities but it still remains smooth and visually pleasing.
