I never bought TOCA World Tour, which is odd, as 1&2 were my absolute favourites on PS1. The variety of racing models alone has always appealed, though.
It wasn't great by any stretch, and I actually played it on Dreamcast, but Vanishing Point was a good game, IMO.
Not sure how the PS version held up, but the car variety was good for the time and the challenges added something different to the saturated genre of the time.
I used to play this game with my sister as coop. I would be driving and she would be shooting. We would yell at each other because we couldn't keep the baddie's car on target I don't think I ever got past the 3rd level, but when you're a kid you can just keep replaying the same level over and over and not get bored. Also it's nice being able to drive around without the fear of being chased, unlike Driver 1/2.Not necessarily a racing game but I have this mediocre driving game called World’s Scariest Police Chases. It was basically a clone of the classic Driver recipe except you controlled the police car. It was pretty fun and arguably slipped under the mainstream radar. A few months later GTA transitioned to 3D on PS2, and then people couldn’t care less about crime-themed open world driving games on PS1.
Thanks for this! I was reminded recently to play that game, but the lack of a completed translation would be why it hasn't happened yet. 🐺Got in this thread to say that finally there is a fan made translation completed for Racing Lagoon. Will not be hard to find the translation pack or the game already translated itself.
