Hi Octane - Saturn

A neat litle port over from the PC, Hi Octane is pretty much intact from the original, retaining the nine tracks, umpteen cars and Magic Carpet physics.

Its techno soundtrack, "space" courses and combat angle give it a Wipeout feel, though the glitch-prone graphics don't even come close.

It plays nicely, but when offered a choice between this and Sega Rally, we know which one we'd smash with a hook.
