Those expecting the same experience as Electronic Arts' Need For Speed will be sorely disappointed. Beetle Adventure Racing is exactly what the title says; it's an adventure game with the Volkswagen Beetle. The focus is on taking the unbeaten paths and crazy high-flying jumps and power-ups and not so much on getting the fastest lap times. It's arcade fun on long imaginative tracks with many different possible directions. The strict racing sim fan should stay away, however, but all others should have a blast.
