Virtua Racing - Switch. It's really, really good! Now available in UK.


Recommended Posts

I haven’t even played multiplayer yet to be honest, and I’ve put countless hours in. 

 

Now its properly available in this region I hope to be able to get a game online, I wasn’t able to find anyone at the times I was playing (understandable given the time difference between the U.K. and japan).

Is the single player on this much cop, or is it really designed for couch co-op?

It is Virtua Racing, a completely perfect, better than arcade, beautiful conversion. It does have 8 player on one console if you would like as well as online play, but the game is amazing even in single player

So, today has finally come!!!

 

It might sound a little crazy, but having regularly traveled for miles and miles to pump pound after pound into this in various different arcades over the years and a couple of times coming crazy close to actually buying my own cabinet (but ideally I'd want a twin one) this is quite possibly my singularly most anticipated switch title!! 

 

The icing on this super tasty VR cake?

 

Spoiler

£5.99 :omg:

I've never played mutli player.

 

I just time trial the same course over and over and over. It is amazing.

Yeah but it really is.

 

The track is washed out too. Everything is too light.

 

They've paid such microscopic attention to detail with this port, it's weird that the colours are off.

Let get an online game going tonight then.   What do we do? Share friend codes?

 

Am I wrong but I thought it said 2 player online on the eShop description. 8 player offline.

LOLS.

All the other Sega Ages ones do and it even has a manual section – but it only has the previous Sega Ages manuals.

 

All the Wii U and 3DS digital games had them, but the Switch ones? Nope.

 

I see what you mean with these specifically - it's because they're all on a website (not in the game download) and they've just not made that live yet. You can get to it here: http://manuals.sega.com/sega-ages/

That link is accessed via the game though and still doesn't include the Virtua Racing one. Just seems weird.

It's the wrong shade of red according to one video.

 

It's worse than that (all the colours are off) but I'm sure it'll be fixed. 

 

In any case I've always treated this game as greatest arcade racer of all time (with Sega Rally on its tail) so I can live with a little colour / gamma inaccuracy.

 

Also I can't wait to see the complete removal of polygonal pop up and get accustomed to the handling (the PS2 port definitely didn't get that bit right).
