Back in the prime years of N64 playing, Beetle Adventure Racing was one of the cheap and cheerful budget buys that offered you an alternative to the more mainstream racing games. The graphics were reasonably good and the game was easy to play. The game involves pitting your wits against VW Beetles in a VW Beetle of your own. There are three levels - easy, medium and hard and the idea of the game is to enroll in a championship whereby you unlock courses by coming in a high position and gain cheats to make the game more interesting by finding hidden routes, the courses are pretty inventive and interesting, ranging from a regular road through town and country ...

I have owned this game for about twleve months now and it has to be one of the best racing games on the N64, and believe me, the competition is pretty steep! My opinion is going to be biased on this game, as the VW Beetle is my favouirte car of all time.

I bought this game quite a while ago nearly a year. It has to be one of the better racing games on the N64. The levels are hard but after a few goes and you find the shortcuts they get easier.

The multiplayer is where the game is let down. It is good but I have only played it with two players more might be more entertaining. I hear there is a cheat for the game to open up the cars as you can progress up the levels to get faster and more multicoloured beetles. Overall I would ... Read the complete review

Probably one of the low budget games made for the N64, it has decent graphics and fairly decent driving physics, although it isnt the most spectacular game it will still hold your attention for a couple of hours. The game supports 2 player races and 4 player battles. A similar game was created in Australia under the name of 'HSV Adventure Racing' exactly the same game, but with Holden's instead of Volkswagen's. The game revolves around winning the races whilst finding the secrets hidden in each race track in order to get bonus points in the championships and to unlock cheats to use in the game. Tracks vary from driving on country roads, ... Read the complete review
