The Team17 Softography Says… “Welcome to the definitive top-down arcade racing game – welcome to ATR. Whether in the exciting single player arcade mode or the simply fabulous simultaneous two player battle mode, we guarantee you’ll burn serious rubber!

Featuring six exciting 3D style terrains to race across with over 40 competitive tracks with many unique features.”

A top-down racing game, and while it is hardly “definitive” it is amusing to play. It doesn’t feel very much like a Team17 game, and there’s a good reason for this too – it was created by Jamie Woodhouse, the same man who created Qwak. It’s certainly an interesting racing game, with some rather nifty features, but it’s certainly not the greatest racing game in the world. Team17 have not had a good track record when it comes to producing racing games, as players of Stunt GP will no doubt know, but this is the best of the lot, even if the selection isn’t that great.
