      Arcade game from the future

      San Francisco Rush 2049 is the 3rd Rush release on the N64, it was also released on the Dreamcast and in arcade format. The game is based in the future (as you have probably guessed unless you are reading this review in 39 years time!) and the graphics are quite impressive, having developed San Francisco into a futuristic sort of world that retains some of its current climate. The designs of the cars are also impressive and there's a bit of sci-fi feel to launching the cars up the famed hilly streets of San Francisco.

      It's not an easy feat to beat the other drivers unlike in so many racing games and this gives the gamer more gameplay than you might get from other titles, there's a battle mode and also a stunt mode where you can get points for various manouevres during the hill launches but neither impress greatly.

      I can't compare it to the previous editions of Rush because I've never played them but it's quite fun as a racing game, I'm not overly enamoured with the futuristic factor but if you like playing games that incorporate futuristic worlds then this may just be the game for you. I think that the courses or other racers could be a little more interesting, although there are a few nice touches when it comes to parts of the road that slow you down and accelerate you, there seem to be too many straight parts on the majority of tracks.

      It is far from the complete article but the handling is not horrible and they've done a fairly good job of bringing an Arcade classic to the N64.
