...nearly 30 years later its a joke. Shoddy graphics, printing that looks like it was done at the local Kinko's, and gameplay straight out of 1985.

Seems like it was created entirely by one amateur trademark troll in his basement. Its almost as if this game was created solely to have the "edge" trademark trolling keep on rolling.

If you see the demo of this game, it looks great, the ships look as though they have sliding physics, probably airbrakes, and some very nice visuals, but when you actually play it, you ship does NO sliding, grips to the ground and is generally boring as heck. If you enjoyed pulse racer, you will like this one. Race (indy 500) on the atari 2600 had better physics. NO communication rom the distributor of the people who hold the publishing rights to the game, until after the game arrived, and then it was an arrogant response. I basically wanted to know when they would ship the item so It would charge my account (11 days before they contacted amazon that they sent it). BAD all around, avoid unless EDGE games wants to pay you to have it

It's hard to describe how perfectly this product performed. The CD itself is as round as an CD I have seen before. Apart from the rather awkwardly stuck-on label the shininess was hard to beat. Of course, as a game, it was appalling. As a coaster, it was just the ticket. The quality of the packaging took the edge® off the overall experience. I was particularly impressed with the name "Racers"®. Like a good can of deck stain, it does what it says on the tin. Brilliant! It's this type of genius that keeps Tim Langdell at the cutting edge® of the games industry. I am looking forward to the next re-packaging of old Russian games to bring us such titles as "Shoot-em-up", "RPG" and "Some Sort of Simulation Thing with the Word Edge® in it" The industry expects great things of this acknowledge®d thought leader, and as ever, he never fails to disappoint.

"Racers" is just repackaged version of a (mediocre) 2 year old game called "Voltage" released by a different publisher in 2008. Look it up. It has been alleged that if you buy this, you'll just get a burned DVD-R with a sticker on it. Avoid.

This game is delivered on a blank recordable DVD which cannot be read in any machine, not surprising because the DVD was not recorded. The packaging is ink-jet printing and not professionally printed. The box is a cheap DVD case. There was no printed instruction booklet, just a piece of paper with more cheap ink-jet printing. The DVD label was a sticker. The seller refused to give any kind of refund or accept any returns. I think the five out of five "review" is obviously suspect since who would seriously litter their review with (R) symbols, apart from the owner of course.

Edge Games®, home of the Gamers Edge®, has long been my favourite games publisher. The Edge® led the way during gaming's golden era with standout titles such as the mind-bending Mazenture® and the captivating Activator®. Since then, the Masters Of The Game® have remained on the Cutting Edge® of game development with breakout genre busters like Mythora® (medieval AND futuristic? Can you beat that!?). Now, Edge® redefines modern gaming with this outstanding addition to the 700 strong Edge Games® catalogue: the cunningly titled Racers®.

Racers® promises much to the eager player: unlock more than a dozen space jets! Play in championship races worldwide on Internet servers! Multiple powerups! Numerous achievements! Strategies! It seems unlikely that any one game could possibly deliver on such outlandish promises, but, somehow, Racers® delivers on all fronts.

First, the visuals. From the sublime cover art through to the numerous and tastefully typeset trademarks that adorn the back of the case, Racers® is a real looker. The slick retro stylings of the numerous space jets and uncluttered interface leave imitators like Wipeout in the dust. Not since Mega Race has a futuristic racing game featured such compelling visual splendour.

The gameplay is equally compelling; so vivid is the sensation of speed I was on the verge of blacking out. Pressing various keys allows you to control your sleek craft and mastery of this skill is key to being a competitive member of the thriving online Racers® community.

The audio fits the action to a tee and will keep you on the edge® of your seat. Racers® sets new benchmarks for in game audio, delivering a sonic slug to the solar plexus of pale facsimiles such as Extreme-G and Sky Roads.

To sum up: I can't recommend this game highly enough. Edge® have produced an unqualified masterpiece that can confidently rub shoulders with the likes of Hi-Octane and Mach Rider, themselves outstanding examples of the genre. The fact that there is only a single copy remaining is testament to its quality. Live life on the edge®: grab it now!®
