Sega Touring Car Championship

Ah! Sega Touring Car Championship! The latest game to find it's way into Father Krishna's collection. Playing somewhere between Daytona USA and Sega Rally, this is yet another example of the excellent driving fayre available on the Saturn. With it's pumping techno soundtrack (there is a link between the Saturn and rave culture which I shall expand upon at a later date...) this game is a must for all race fans! I have a few days off this week and I intend to do a comparative review of Saturn driving games, as played using the steering wheel peripheral! These will include Sega Rally, Daytona USA, Sega Touring Car Championship and just for a laugh, Manx Superbike TT!

Obviously, the best way to play this game is in the arcade in a fully sized Toyota Supra, with widescreen and surround sound (as pictured below) However, as you'd have to go to the Joypolis Arcade in Tokyo to do it, for now the Saturn home console port will have to do!

This rather lovely game only cost me £3 and is in immaculate condition with one of those durable plastic 'snap shut' cases rather than the brittle plastic and paper UK PAL cases that like to disintegrate over time! So, despite the Wii entering Krishna towers, the Saturn love continues, and I promise at least three new posts in the ensuing week!

Peace Out! FK
