Fast forward to the 23rd century, even further into the future than the lofty heights of the Wipeout series, and you will find that, rather than hovering above the tracks, at least three feet are back on the ground. It’s Magforce Racing, a catchy abbreviation of ‘magnetic force’ of course. The construction of the courses in this game make some kind of magnetic traction essential, so when you find yourself heading into a 360 degree loop, you had better be ready with the magnets. You could always try to build up so much speed on your approach to the loop and hope for the best, but there are pick-ups available to restore your magnet power as you race around the track. There are also offensive and defensive weapon pick-ups dotted around, so you can protect yourself and then blast your opponents out of the way. At the end of the racing schedule, a schedule that starts on Earth and takes in the rest of the solar system, your efforts may be rewarded with a bonus track.

If you are familiar with Killer Loop on the PlayStation, then you’ll know all about Magforce Racing, because it’s the same game. Expect the same game-play and design, but revel in the quality of the graphics. The Dreamcast really does it justice, so if you can deal with the DC joypad, Magforce Racing will please those of a future racer bent.
