Bang Bang Racing is a game that’s sure to tweak the nostalgia lobes. Each generation of gamers seem to have a similar little gem stored away. For some they’ll travel back to the time of the Micro Machine and the joy of racing along a kitchen worktop or pool table or, if you’re slightly older, like myself, the top down racing genre brings memories of the magnificent Super Sprint flooding back.
And when memories as rich as those come pouring in it’s with undiluted excitement that I approach this Digital Reality and Playbox release for the Xbox LIVE Arcade.
But, as I remove the drivers helmet and walk shoulders slumped from the pit lane of Bang Bang Racing the only feelings washing over me are ones of disappointment and regret.
