Editors' reviewThis sequel to Interstate '76 won't disappoint anyone looking for a mission-based driving game that offers plenty of shoot-'em-up action. Although the game offers an involved back story, it's easy to skip it and go straight to the carnage. Unfortunately, unless you have a gamepad, you'll be doing a lot of dancing around the keyboard. More than a dozen controls require various keyboard combinations. Luckily, those controls are user-definable, but you still might need a crib sheet to remember what does what. The demo also forgos the game's Training mode and runs a bit light on instructions, so you'll likely be lost at first. The game's graphics and sound effects also are a bit dated, but this demo's crashing, weapons, and explosions still appeal.
It's 1982 and auto terrorism is at an all-time high. The U.S. is in crisis, and you, the legendary road warrior Taurus, are dealing with a crisis of your own. Your longtime partner, Groove Champion, is missing, and it's up to you to keep him from becoming a skid mark in the mother of all wars on wheels. Wage fully charged vehicular combat as you strive to uncover and destroy top-secret forces before they drive you--and the entire country--to the brink.
