Daytona USA

 

Daytona USA has a somewhat interesting history aside from its arcade roots. Following its original arcade release, it received a decent port as a launch title for the Sega Saturn, and was also ported to PC a year later. A planned 32X version was...

Fast and fluid arcade-style racing, online or offline ; Significant boost in graphics over previous ports and the original arcade version

Arcade roots mean there's not a lot of replay value to be found ; Very weak online community from the start, with little prospects of that improving significantly

The graphics have been given a signficant boost, now sporting a fluid 60 fps framerate, sharp textures and widescreen display. The cars and environments are still fairly basic and show their mid-90’s roots, but with the nicer textures they look...

Who can forget the first time they heard those magical lyrics, ‘Rolling Start!'? Honestly, growing up in arcades probably scarred my perspective on today's games in some fashion, but when a stupid song...

Still controls fantastically ; Wonderfully awful music ; Classic arcade action

Not a lot of extras ; Still only three tracks

Who can forget the first time they heard those magical lyrics, ‘Rolling Start!’? Honestly, growing up in arcades probably scarred my perspective on today’s games in some fashion, but when a stupid song from a cabinet machine still lingers with me to...

Review: Daytona USA is a Faithful, Yet Content-light Arcade Port

 

It's barely changed since the '90s, but Sega's classic arcade racer is still near the top of the list.

In 2009, Sega brought their long-celebrated racing game Daytona USA back to arcades, where it had flourished for years. This time, though, it was called "Sega Racing Classic" due to a lapsed license from International Speedway Corp. A couple of years...

Having an arcade-perfect version of Daytona USA at home has been a long, long, LONG time coming. Eighteen years ago, Daytona USA hit arcades and blew people away with its stunning graphics and massive car-shaped cabinet that allowed for up to 8...

I wound up loving the downloadable version of Daytona USA. If you grew up playing it in its heyday, or enjoyed it as Sega Racing Classic recently, definitely give it a shot. For $10 on XBLA or $7 on PSN for a limited time, you'll be able to play one of...

Daytona USA review

 

2011 has been a big year for Sega remakes. As if Sega Rally, Radiant Silvergun, Guardian Heroes and the soon-to-be-released Sonic CD are not enough, Sega has recently resurrected its most iconic arcade racing title, Daytona USA. With a presence in...

Overall, Daytona USA is a rare and shining example of how to update a classic title without compromising anything that fans loved about it in the first place. While technically its simplistic visuals, obnoxious soundtrack and limited vehicle and course...

Daytona USA Review

 

It’s unfair to lambast the game for these complaints, because the title is well made and it’s a decent homage to one of the arcade racing greats. But I struggled to find a point to its existence outside of a Museum exhibit dedicated to gaming past...

One of the best arcade conversions ever made; Everything is perfect, especially the sound; Great for a nostalgic bite

Stripping what made the game fun in arcades removes any point to play; Online community is completely non-existent; No new content, still just three tracks

Daytona USA (PS3) review

 

Before going into this review, let me give a little history on one of my favorite arcade racing games of all time. Daytona USA was released in arcades in 1993 and was the first to debut on the Sega Model 2 arcade board which allowed for more texture...

From the full-screen attract mode to the cars-flipping-everywhere 'Congratulations!' sequence on the Expert track, Daytona USA is a joyous, jubilant celebration of everything that made arcade games so exciting and got us into gaming in the first place....

Alongside the recent port of Guardian Heroes, this is the perfect example of how to revisit your back catalogue. With 18 years' worth of dust carefully brushed aside, Daytona USA has been lovingly restored and thoughtfully explored - providing a...

Daytona USA- PS3

 

Today, the battle between Forza and Gran Turismo is the only racing game world that matters to most people, but Daytona is back to show us that the fun of driving in a video game doesn't necessarily require realism. Like the words on that one wall on...
