Set in a fantasy penthouse, Grooverider: Slot Car Thunder lets you experience quick lane changes, 360-degree loops, and crazy twists and turns on 20 slot car tracks. If you're a smart racer, you'll be sure to grab extra power-ups for a boost or blasting power. If you're not, then the tracks' spikes, mines, and other booby traps will surely be your downfall. In single- or multiplayer modes, you can get behind the wheel of any racecar, ranging from 1920s British cars to American stock cars. Expand

  1. Able to separate itself form the pack through its simple control scheme and fast action gameplay. If you are looking for a racer for the kid who always crashes into the wall in other racing games, then Slot Car Thunder is the perfect choice.
  2. Generic techno music replaces the familiar hum and clatter of slot cars, and the vehicles hop grooves unrealistically. [Nov 2003, p.151]
  3. It's a sad world when "budget gaming" is synonymous with "poke your eye out with a dull stick."
  4. 45
    Basic arcadey track designs mix with stupidly simple controls and poor graphics for an end experience that falls somewhere below the average.
  5. Although the title features a nice selection of tracks and cars, that doesn't change the fact that you're just cruising around set paths for three or five laps, and none of the car selections change much of anything.
