5.0 out of 5 stars Rad, indeed March 2, 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever wanted to see a new take on a game like Pole Position? Rad Racer hit that mark. Okay, so there's nothing TOO new to the Pole Position formula, but Rad Racer is just as fun nonetheless.

It kinda has the same basic gameplay as Namco's arcade racer, but that's not really a complaint, since the gameplay is already very good.

You can speed up by holding Up. However, that can cause a problem when it comes to turning, so you might want to pull the brakes when a turn comes.

The music is well-composed, and the graphics are great for its time.

What really makes this game stand out, however, is it's 3D feature. If you press Select, the game switches to classic red-and-blue 3D! Just get those 3D glasses and enjoy the game. Granted, it's dated, but back then, it was huge.

Overall, it's a really good take on Pole Position, and it's well worth your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I want to be a Rad Racer!" March 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
I legitimately remember saying that to my mother after playing this game at a neighbors house. I was for some reason bizarrely fascinated by this game and to this day my fascination has grown and I am now a loser who sits in his mother's basement playing this game non-stop! ...

Just kidding. This game is awesome and is usually cheap enough to add to your collection without breaking the bank.

Fun fact: the makers of the Final Fantasy game series (Square) also made Rad Racer. Imagine that!

Greatest racing game on the good old NES. I have played this game well over 100 times and can say it is very good. If you are buying this I would also recommend a NES advantage or NES MAX. They complement this game very well. Also to get some cheesy video game music press the down button.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Nintendo Game Ever Made!! September 15, 2002
By A Customer
I love this game. It is very addicting and exciting. I could play for hours and hours. This is definitely one of nintendo's best games. If you love classic car racing games, this one is for you. It is simple but fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want this game severely! August 5, 2003
A Kid's Review
I borrowed this game from a babysitter 2 years back. Sadly, I had to return it since they love their NES as much as I do (well, I don't think anyone could quite love it as much as me!) Some time later, I was looking into some used classics. I wanted to build my SNES and Game Gear collection and go cheap so I didn't fuss over my NES too much. I never got around to this addictive racing classic.
The graphics are kindda like a late Atari 2600 game but that dosen't stop me or other classic lovers. You can drive insanely fast, dodge obstacles and choose your car! Don't make the same mistake as mine; buy it now instead of having to wait for your next order (or visit to your classic-loving friend's house!)

Cartridge look OK and it took some cleaning work to get the game to play on my console.
