racing mate, that's the one
a bit racy? Sometimes wear a helmet and driving gloves during
your drive to work? Then you'll want to know what games are
here for the holidays won't you? For the Formula 1 fanatic he/she
has two choices. If you like to drive the cars then it has to
be Official Formula 1 Racing '99 which includes all the cars,
Drivers and circuits from the '99 season and lets you become
formula 1 champion without the need to get a racing suit on.
If you like to coordinate the cars, organize pit stops or be
an all round Ron Dennis then it has to be Grand Prix World.
Made by Microprose it is a sequel to their previous Grand Prix
Manager games. Given a new look and the option to watch the
whole race as if you were watching it on the telly. Take control
of any of the top 10 teams in the 99 season and steer them to
glory. Don't like Formula 1? Like you cars to have a roof to
keep out the cold? Then one you should take into consideration
is Le Mans 24 hours. A full simulation of the 24 hours Le Mans
Race and yes you can take up the option of playing the full
24-hour race. It includes all the cars from the most recent
race and allows you to race them in the world's most historic
event. Rally Championship is another you should consider to.
It includes all 120 World Rally Car stages with you being able
to drive all the WRC and BRC cars. Become Colin Mcrae and be
king of the forest. The one point about this game that might
put you off is that you need a powerful PC to get it to run.
around the 300-400MHZ range CPU, 64MB-128Mb of RAM and at least
a powerful video card, Voodoo 3's or a TNT2 should be more than
enough to run all the holiday's games.
don't really like any of them
worry there are plenty of other titles to fill up your stocking
this Christmas. How about the fourth game in the Tomb Raider
series, Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation featuring that little
known computer character, Lara Croft. Or what about Codename
Eagle. This game is similar to Rainbow Six but allows you to
take on a variety of cunning tasks. If you like a fair share
of gore in your game then Kingpin should meet all your needs,
allowing you to blow different body parts of individually with
an aura of firepower. Taking the criminal angle you my want
Grand Theft Auto 2 to be on your list. You can just about break
every law there is in this game as you steal, kill and smash
up parts of a made up city to impress the gangs employing you.
