    Racing Game Pinnacle Reached

    There have been lots of racing games over the years but none can claim to have been King of the arcades like the game that is Daytona USA. The home version of this game was every bit as awesome as its arcade father. The ... Read Full Review

    A sloppy conversion of an arcade classic, but at least it still feels like Daytona.

    If you played Daytona USA in the arcade, you'll know that it was one of the fastest and most exciting racers to blow your cash on. Sadly, when the game was ported to Sega's brand new console in 1995, the Saturn, the same... Read Full Review

    Even a chopped down arcade game like this one can still be really, really entertaining in the end.

    Wow, this isn't looking so good… Strutting along at a not-so-friendly 20 frames per second, you'd be quick to call Daytona USA on the Sega Saturn a huge mistake and undoubtedly a massive disappointment. What makes t... Read Full Review

    Simply a classic to be kept alive and remembered! It should be in every gamer's collection that owns a sega saturn. It lead the genre in it's time and can still be picked up and played by any gamer today and enjoy it for... Read Full Review
