Sprint Cars 2: Showdown Eldora
great game and is really fun. best dirt track game ever
The Same Difference
I've played numerous dirt racing games including: WoO Sprint Cars Dirt Track Racing Saturday Night Speedway Sprint Cars RTK Dirt to Daytona Dirt Track Racing 2 *ranked accordingly* Sprint Cars 2: Showdown at Eldora is a very simple basic racing game. It lacks the frame rate that it requires to be a decent game. The vehicles in this game are the same as the prelude in the series Sprint Cars: Road to Knoxville except that they've added 3 classes. The career mode is not at all in depth and very easy to blow through quickly. Many things should have been added to this game to make it great but it appears that it was made on a very small budget. If you really love dirt racing and can get a copy for cheap I would just to say you have it. But I would not recommend seeking out a copy expecting a great racing game.
Should Have Never Left the Factory
Always been a huge fan of this genre of game and most reviewers do not give the dirt track the respect it deserves. Unfortunately, Sprintcar2 Showdown at Eldora deserves every bad review it gets. I will not get into too many specifics as to why this game should never have been released but here’s what SAE offers. -The same tracks as Sprintcar Road to Knoxville -The same models and paint schemes for the Modifieds, Midgets and Sprintcars as RTK -Three new classes Prostock, Latemodel and Wingless Sprintcar (all with paint schemes that look like they took as long to name as they did to complete. -A Tractor pull mini game Sounds like Big Ant just added to an OK game and no harm right? Wrong! What was smooth, fast racing in RTK is now so jittery with a frame rate fluxuating like my waistline during the holidays that it completely unplayable even with everything (including all sound turned off.) Also, don’t bother starting a career, I had a driver win every race in a series and still finish 6th and under a different name. If you are even considering purchasing this game please consider games such as Saturday Night Speedway, World of Outlaw 2002, NASCAR Dirt to Daytona and yes even Sprintcar Road to Knoxville.
