Freaky Flyers – Review

From the beginning, gamers have longed to kart race. Well, maybe that's not entirely true, but the racing genre, and especially "kart racers" have made up a consistent chunk of gaming libraries since Atari (the original one, not the new, fakey one) burst onto the scene.

Well, whoever those people are, I sincerely hope that they knock it off, or we'll wind up with more games like Freestyle Metal X.
