A highly underrated racing game, Vette! features great graphics, camera angle options, and multiplayer. It was, in fact, one of the first racing games to offer multiplayer racing via modem, which is implemented quite successfully despite the lag inherent with older modems.

The goal of the game, as the name suggests, is to race your corvette against another human or computer player through an accurate reproduction of San Francisco, complete with discernible landmarks such as the Golden Gate bridge. You can choose between store models (stock or ZR1), or a tricked-up twin turbo or "sledgehammer". The game includes an excellent on-screen map display from which you can choose the best route – there are multiple ways to reach the finish line. You can also switch between all kinds of views, which includes combination views. Definitely one of the most fun street racing games ever made, with enough realism to satisfy die-hard racers but a gentle learning curve and great graphics to keep beginners hooked. Two thumbs up!
