    2049 features great new standard racing tracks spilling with amazing shortcuts at every turn and a new coins system that unlocks secrets.
  3. Its solid visuals, imaginative tracks, tight control, and over-the-top physics model make it a winner in the arcade racing genre.
  4. The added improvements, like the new wings, will ensure gaming pleasure for months to come.
  5. A fun, if not exactly classic, future-racer, riddled with shortcuts and offering plenty to do. Pales in comparison to "F-Zero X," though.
  6. With a multitude of elements that let it transcend that narrow and often underrated genre, racing fans and those simply seeking a wild, entertaining experience would do well to check it out.

    Rush 2049 is an amazing racing game and has an intense trick system that allows you to fly through the air spinning the car around and doing insane twists. The game will provide you with countless hours of fun. I know I say this a lot, but it's easily one of the best games for the N64. Full Review »

    By far the best overall racing game for N64 it has excellent replayability and the secrets seem to never end. I have had this game since it first came out and despite having newer systems I just keep coming back. Full Review »
