Beetle Adventure Racing is an arcade racing game that was released on the Nintendo 64, featuring real VolksWagen Beetle wagons.
The game is best described as an mixture of Mario Kart meets San Fransico Rush. The rich and colorful racing tracks were huge and featered all kings of terrain, from a dense jungle to a shivering hot lavamountain! All the tracks had several shortcuts, so you as a player were challenged to find all those shortcuts and use them in your advantage.
Beetle Adventure Racing was for me one of the best racers that was released on the N64.
It’s rumoured that it’s going to be released on Wii’s Virtual Console.
