One of the most underrated sci-fi racing games of all time, Activision's Death Track is a fun futuristic racing game where the objective is to eliminate your opponents-- literally. With names like "Preying Menace" and "Crimson Death," you know you will enjoy driving these cars long before the race even begins.

When the action begins, you have many delightful ways to get rid of the competition: by ramming them, slicing their tires, dropping mines beneath their underbellies, and -- of course-- blasting them with a variety of weapons, including particle beams, leasers, missiles, and good ol' machine guns. You must stay on track, though, so keep an eye out for road signs. Running off the road slows you down a lot, and it is hard to get traction when you're off the blacktop. If your car gets damaged, its performance will drop. When that happens, you can pull over into the pits to repair or get more weapons. The objective, naturally, is to cross the finish line first, but you can do that either by outracing, or outgunning, your opponents. "Kills" are worth points for your final score, but they don't win you any money, so winning each race is crucial to buying more powerful weapons for the next race. With vibrant graphics, furious action, and a wide range of weapons to arm your car with, Death Track is a must-play for all racing and sci-fi fans, and is a true precursor for games such as Quarantine and Interstate '76. Two thumbs up!
