If there's one thing about the future that developers seem to wholeheartedly agree on across the board it's that sporting events will be a great deal more dangerous than your current viewing schedule on Saturday Grandstand. For some reason, in the not too distant future, it is presumed that we will all suddenly demand more danger, thrills and excitement from our voyeurism, therefore enabling the conception of such events as this.

In the year 2015, that's exactly what the Drome Racers offer. Whether you tune in via TV or the Net, or travel to the Drome to experience the spectacle of the greatest racing teams in the world, competing across the most hazardous, most extreme range of racetracks ever assembled. There are flying cameras, giant screens and terraformed landscapes. For spectator and competitor alike, it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The game itself takes the form of the now-customary futuristic, high-speed, battle racing game. You select from an assortment of 18 vehicles from the Lego range before battling it out against up to five opponents. There are a total of 18 tracks, set across six diverse locations, all rendered in impressively fast 3D.

As you may expect, an intense and unusual array of weaponry is at your disposal, from rockets to bombs, meaning that, if you're having trouble overtaking any opponents, with the push of a button you can quite easily eliminate them from the proceedings.

It's not the most original game concept but as far as racing games go, Drome Racers is an accomplished title. There's also support for the GBA link cable, enabling up to four friends to battle it out in some intense multi-cart action.
