Review of CART Fury

What is CART you ask? It stands for Championship Auto Racing Teams. These puppies drive at speeds over 235mph. Champ Car engines are 2.65 litre overhead-cam turbocharged V-8 monsters that spit out 850 horsepower at 15,000 rpm and are manufactured by Mercedes, Ford, Honda and Toyota.

Its only fair to point out that this is a conversion of Midways arcade machine and as such the emphasis is on speed and fun rather than realism.

Starting out, the player needs to set options like 1 or 2 player mode, audio, controls, and cheats. Yes, Cart Fury has its very own cheat screen. Next, pick a driver, there are quite a few champions to choose from, to name a few: Michael Andretti, Bryan Herta, and Jimmy Vasser.

Now it is time to choose a racing mode. Arcade mode is just that; except you dont have to pop in a coin to play. Simulator mode is a little more challenging because the player also needs to make basic adjustments to the car settings, which can have an outcome on track performance. A qualifying round needs to be accomplished first. This will determine the startup position for the next race. Winning first place will allow for advancement. Season mode is a series of races and is not based on taking first place. It is based on points. The player with the most points of course…wins.

Boost and Super Boost is probably the best feature of the game. Hitting boost when available will send your car soaring at great speeds so you can catch up if lagging behind. Super Boost is like rocket speed leaving fire trails behind. The only way to recharge boost is to hit a checkpoint so use it sparingly.

There are also some extras like short cuts and six mini-games. Demolition was my favorite mini game, bang up as many vehicles as possible, and watch out for that flying debris it can jack you up!

The tracks are plentiful and range from easy to very difficult. Hitting walls and other vehicles can damage the players car causing tires to degrade leaving them to eventually blow up. Hints: Look out for smoking tires, find shortcuts, and try to damage the opponents car if possible. This can be accomplished by snuggling up to the enemy.

The car details are way below what we now expect for the PS2. Midway seem to have saved most of the POLYs for the scenery: blue skies, trees, people in the stands, mountains, cool tracks and settings like Germany and exotic RIO. There are also some realistic effects like airplanes zooming by, and passing cruise ships, smoking tires, sparks when making contact with other objects and skid marks; No…Not the kind on your undies!

The sound affects are really awesome. I just love the sound of cars zooming by and they sounded so freaking real!! Crank that surround, you would swear your at the INDIE 500. There is also some commentary and the music is rocking.

OUR PLEDGE: We promise that we have fully played 'CART Fury' before writing this review. The scores given above are our honest opinion and were not influenced in any way by the manufacturer or distributor of the game.
