2nd best racing game for the Sega Genesis!!
If you're a big fan of the Sega Genesis and really like racing games, then you definitely should've tried Super Monaco GP!! This is a review for it's sequel, Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II!!! I remember when I first played this game when it was originally released, I didn't like it very much because I was disappointed with how it controlled so much different than the first game. So I ended up selling it a year or two later. I was always a big fan of the first game, I think it's one of the best games for the system, so I decided to pick up the sequel again on E-Bay. Well, after playing it again and putting some more time into it, I'd have to say it's actually a pretty solid Formula One racing game!! They have amped the difficulty way up from the first game, especially if you play on "Master" mode!! But, if you get REALLY familiar with the tracks, you can do well!! The key to winning at this game is realizing that you just want to go as fast as possible even if that means going off the sides of the course. In the first game, it really slowed you down to even touch the sides of the track, but in this game you can run right over the track edges and not even slow down!! So, because of this, you can go FULL OUT for most of every track that they have (16 different tracks)... If you want to become really good at this game, you definitely want to get used to using the 7-speed manual transmission. Your car goes so much faster when using the 7-speed trans!! They did improve on the background graphics from the first game. When racing in Monaco you can see all the beautiful hills and buildings and even the water in the background. They didn't just use the same old background graphics from the first game. Somebody actually re-did the backgrounds, and they look terrific!! (Some of the best graphics on the system) And, now you can enter your name and nationality, which you couldn't do in the first game. The most disappointing thing about the game is the music!! The original Super Monaco GP had great exciting music, but this game the music is pretty poor and sometimes downright awfull!!! But, I wouldn't let that hamper your purchase of this game if you're thinking about getting it. It is a great racing game!! You will have to put a lot more time into the game if you want to beat it, though... In the original Super Monaco you could beat the top team (Madonna) after the first two races and take over that car!! In this game you definitely have to climb up the ladder much slower, just a few teams up at a time... but eventually you can beat Ayrton himself and take over the Madonna's team car!!! If you are looking to buy a racing game for the Sega Genesis, I would highly recommend buying the first Super Monaco GP game... then, if you liked that game or allready have that game go out and get Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II!!! It's Genesis driving action at it's BEST!!!Read full review
