Retro Car Game

March 4, 2009

It’s a bit old now, but it’s still a sweet little game.  I got home the other night and was bored as all hell.  Rather than do anything constructive I thought I would see what I had on my HDD to play.  I ended up cranking up GT Legends.

If you’ve no idea what GT Legends is, then gather around children whilst I tell you a tale of magic and wonder.  Or rather of simulation and classics.  GT Legends is made by SimBin, a German software developer.  The level of physics and detail is, for it’s time, quite astounding.  The only thing I find lacking in it, is the lack of Japanese classics.  Having said that, it’s still fun as all hell to fang about in Mini Cooper’s, Lotus Elan’s, RS3100 Capri’s, Alfa Romeo GTA’s and many others.

Do you get bored at work?  At home?  Do you like to pretend to race cars with-out actually racing them?

BATracer is an online racing strategy/manager game, you compete against other people from all over the world in numerous different categories of car racing.  There’s constantly new categories under development and some are far more difficult than others.  It can take some time to get into it but it helps pass the time and is entertaining to boot.

You can check it out by following this link or by clicking the picture above;


From that main page you can see the current 18 different race types to choose from and with more coming there’s a selection for everyone.  In the retro stakes there 1986 Formula 1 and in the MR2 racing you can choose the AW11.  I’ve personally been playing it on and off for a while now.  I would recommend it to anyone who gets bored at work and has access to the site.
