Discover illegal street racing through the whole of Europe. Through every major city, such as Paris, London, Barcelona, Stockholm, Florence, Amsterdam, Marseille, Athens, Berlin, with all nations and the most exotic cars from all over Europe competing against each other.

Europe Racer could be labelled as an expanded version of the previously released London Racer and the France-only release Paris-Marseille Racing. Developers Davilex are, after all, responsible for bringing this latest instalment to us, and if it’s as much fun as its predecessors, it should be a good laugh, at least.

The crux of the game is to start out with a basic, small car, and work your way through the courses, hopefully succeeding in the races along the way. The better you place in the race, the more currency you accrue, allowing you to upgrade your car and eventually trade say, your Nissan Micra, for something a little sportier, a little faster maybe. There are over thirty cars available to race in a total of 21 European cities, whose streets and squares will be instantly familiar, featuring as they do, landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Brandenburg Gate.

With a plentiful array of race options and championship modes available in Europe Racer, boredom is a long way from setting in. Even if it’s not your turn, you can always admire the scenery.
