Hudson Soft brings you all the grandeur of racing in Battle Grand Prix for the Super NES!
Custom build your auto for Formula-1 style racing. Try your new wheels on any of the international race tracks. Maneuver quickly through the turns as you compete against the computer, or provide your own competition via a friend in the two-player mode. Buckle up, there are 3 difficulty levels.
It's interesting that Hudson would put this game up against the 'Mode 7' enhanced racers filled with graphic candy. Being a fan of top-down drivers, however, I had hoped that this entry might have some new spins on the genre. Although there are some cool techniques to master, the action never really grabbed me. Average.
I really enjoy playing racing games but unfortunately this one just doesn't hold my interest. The constant overhead display with an annoying split screen is the real turn off because you can't see what's coming up. The amount of options is nice but other than that, it's just a simple racing game without much flair.
This is not one of the better racing carts for the Super NES. The graphics are OK and there are tons of options and special features to please the racing fan. The game play is lacking in the control department and having a split screen for the one-player mode is weak. The game ends up being another average racer.
One of the things I really like about Battle Grand Prix is the numerous option settings. You can customize this game like no other racing game before it, and choose from several different types of races and courses. What's wrong? The perspective stinks. All turns are blind turns, and without some control, forget it.
