Maybe it’s not good to say that, but still - something like this should have been done a long time ago! Of course, Daytona USA for the Saturn system, for all its shortcomings, is a wonderful game; exciting car racing, deafening collisions, intricate tracks. But now, finally, the European company Toca has decided that such a game should be created for the PlayStation system. And it turned out not just a copy - the game Burning Road has its own undoubted merits. Naturally, you have the opportunity to choose three route options - one is longer and more difficult than the other.

The track for beginners (Beginner) is not very difficult, but quite interesting. On it you will find long mountain tunnels and large sections of the path in the canyons.

The track for experienced racers (Advanced) puts before you quite difficult tasks. On sections of a dirty road, you are carried from side to side; on icy areas your car slides; in addition, there is a large wooden bridge on the track.

Finally, on the Expert track, there are long, fancifully lit tunnels along the way; The route passes through the streets of a big city.

You can also choose one of the four cars. Each has its own speed and its own control features. Moreover, the view that will open in front of you during the race also depends on the choice of car. For example, from a huge truck, you will see all the other cars as if from above.

Of course, it would be unfair to deny that the creators of Burning Road borrowed ideas from other racing games. Already when choosing a route, sound effects will remind you of something. You have to choose the type of gear shifting - it is best to choose automatic mode. Many episodes on the road and details of the cabin design will be familiar. Well, why, how many popular games have already been - races. Radmobile, Ridge Racer Revolution, Dirt Dash, Sega Rally.

To be successful in this game, you also need to be able to get out of dangerous encounters with honor. Cars here, I must say, are able to withstand very serious skirmishes. On the road, you can play real battles - only bumpers fly. However, terrible accidents are done here with great gusto, besides with a very impressive soundtrack.


  • At the beginning of a sharp turn, be sure to apply the brakes - otherwise you will be carried off the road.
  • Use the traffic watch icon to spot cars coming up behind you and block their path so they can't pass.


  • Mirror tracks - Enter NARCIS as your name.
  • Super car Enter LNCMU as your name.
