The ultimate hi-octane racing game where you control vehicles travelling at blistering speeds.

The PnP version was awesome, but this is simply the icing on the cake.

Has a push your luck feel that often has the leaders fighting to maintain not only position but also survival, due to the other opponents, the vehicles condition, & the deadliness of the track itself.

Instead of movement dice the game uses an original & unique gear change mechanic, plus a simple On/Off weapon activation system.

The speed & physics make it far superior to any 'Roll & Move' racer out there; The faster you go the less lane changes you may get.

Rush 'n' Crush blows the piss out of Formula D and Road Kill Rally. If you can't handle the speed, fit L plates and look there!

Created Cyberboard version.

Best racing game I've played. Very good mechanics that don't bog down game play. Every game has been intense. Components are well made, especially I like that this game doesn't require lots of space (tiny cars aren't a problem if you glue them together).

Absolutely unbelievable. why bother with Formula De, when you can get much more simple fun, and shoot the competition while you are at it! shame scale is so small thou, the cars fall apart every other time you pick them up...

Unique and deadly futuristic racing game. 2 modes of playing: Arcade (simpler and somewhat symmetrical) and Overdrive (deadlier and a little more assymetrical).

Vehicles are cool but tiny.

Great racing game that makes Formula De near obsolete. The movement is great and the weapons are fun.

I like the shifting/overheating system.

There's quite a bit of overhead to knowing all of the little special rules, but it pays off. Once you get it all it plays quick.

APers will take too long though, I recommend my classic Formula De fix which is you can count out your car movement once then you can move your car (choosing either the path you took or a new path). This will cut down on over analysis. It's supposed to be a racing game, yo!

Basically Formula D with weapons, which is more than a bit awesome.

Tearing around a track, dropping mines, and hitting your opponents with flame throwers as you try not to explode is my idea of a good time. The constructable track just makes the whole affair that much better.

A fine game that has instantly taken over the "racing combat" niche. Take Formula-D, add a modular board, add more acceleration/braking options, and a lot of nasty player interaction with shootings, mine laying and ramming.

It's also quite aggressive, and you can push your luck to astronomical levels. Usually the winner is the last car standing.

This game should be a 10. Unfortunately, loses 2 points because of the mediocre production work.

Yes, having this, there's no need to play Formula D anymore.

Pretty solid game. There's a non negligible amount of dice rolling, but the mechanics provide some way to mitigate the randomness through resource management. An important point is that you have to be both bold and tactical, a fair amount of aggressiveness is usually well rewarded.

Jogo de corrida e tiroteio muito bom. Curti bem mais que o Formula D.
O sistema de marchas funciona perfeitamente e o esquema de quanto mais rápido o cara anda, menos trocas de pistas pode fazer é massa.
Só achei que poderiam ter mais carros e pilotos, e as miniaturas dos carros poderiam ser diferentes entre si.

A sorte tem algum peso, poderia ser menor, mas não é algo que seja tão problemático.

Great play with teams and long tracks. With 12 or more segments this game is an excellent play.

In fact, I'd recommend teams of two, on a six or eight segment loop, two laps. This is when the game really shines.

Car Wars here I come!

Finally sat down and played it against my brother, 2 cars each. It was pretty cool, though we played it wrong. We allowed too many uses of the equipment, so it was much easier to prevent overheating (while doing other things) than it should have been.

Looking forward to playing again.

Now this is what I'm talking about. The things that were missing from all of my other racing games were weapons, turbo boosts, deadly obstacles and the ability to maliciously slam your opponents into walls! I love Formula D and Powerboats, etc., but this hits all of the right buttons for me when I just want some good old fashioned destruction and carnage on the track!

Simple, fast, fun, and enjoyable. The decision-making and chaotic amusement are both deep. Real sense of speed and desperate combat. Those who think this takes too long to play or is not deep enough probably were not "truly" looking to play a combat-racing game at the time.

I think this works best with 5 or 6 players. With less it can tend more towards the racing element. With 5 or 6 it seems pretty balanced between people losing by going to slow and losing by getting blown up. Compared to Formula De, there is more player chaos. You have a bit less control over the outcome because if someone wants you dead, they can pretty much kill you, if at great personal cost. In that regard, it's probably not as strategic of a game as Formula De, which makes me enjoy it a little less. Then again, it's awfully satisfying to ram someone into a well at 160MPH after shooting them with a machine gun. Ratatatata!

This game is almost what I wanted Formula D to be. The modular board means both that you don't need to buy a ton of expansions to keep the tracks fresh and that the game length is extremely variable. Having dice determine lane changes rather than speed seems to mitigate the runaway leader problem. Having weapons increases interaction significantly, and having asymmetrical weapons makes things even more interesting.

The one time I've played as of this writing, the person who won also had the best die rolls - then again, he also took the biggest risks, so I'm not sure which was the bigger factor (or if they both contributed). I also gave Formula D an 8 after my first play, which dropped to a 6 after three subsequent games, so while I don't expect my rating to rise much for this, it may fall.

Still, my impression right now is that this is a really fun-to-play game. The atmosphere was similar to Galaxy Trucker in that people found it amusing to see their car blasted to bits. I suspect there'd be a lot of overlap in the fan bases for those two games.

Good balance of tactics, luck and player interaction. With four players the game goes a bit quicker than the time stated in the manual. Six players is likely the basis by which the authors are making their estimates for time.

Very enjoyable weapon- and brawl-based car racing game. For a racing game, it first felt weird that the game has no mechanisms whatsoever for curves or bends - the bends are just cosmetics: mechanisms-wise, they might as just well have been straights.

But it was soon obvious that going smoothly through a curve was so far from the point of this game that it was simply omitted - instead, what you do is try to zig-zag to avoid obstacles in the road, and ram, shoot or flame your opponents. And in those terms, the game succees tremendously.

Dice controls how much your car can change lanes, how much your energy overheats, and how much damage you do when attacking - but all rolls can be mitigated, depending on distance, speed and how much you accelerate, so it's a toying with probabilities, which result in a lot of excitement as the dice are rolled.

(That said, personally, the game would have gained quite a bit if the bends had been designed so that you need to do a lot of lane changes to the right in order to take a right bend. But it's a minor peeve.)

I love this. Such speed and risky decisions. Win or crash and die. I just love how that works out. It's a rare game to have two people make it past the finish line. Great components. Customisation of track is a major major bonus.

Solid racing game where you need to manage your damage if you want to even survive past the first lap. Good speed control mechanisms and plenty of combat that isn't too damaging where it might take you out too fast. Well implemented. Now we need some new tracks for this.

I like the arcade rules more than overdrive because it needs less calculations and plays "faster", the battle between players is great and it has modular game board but it should have a "lock" system (see descent...) to avoid board tiles moving.Cars should have been better.

Futuristic racing game set in the (defunct) AT-43 universe. You have to balance speed, heat and damage to make it through without your car bursting into flames or exploding. Some excellent use of dice here as your speed increases. Can be tense and exciting as you drive by the seat of your pants.
The consulting of charts for collisions slows down an otherwise nippy game; between the two rule books there's a great game, I might compile my own version of the rules balancing flow and complexity.

Lots of fun, but wish dice values were a bit more consistent as it can be a pain trying to remember if a high value is good, or you should be rolling 4+ or just 1 or 2's, etc. Reference sheet helps, but still fiddly in this regard. Also has a runaway leader problem, so had to introduce house rule for needing to go at reduced speeds around corners.

Though the vehicle components are a little meager, this is a very solid game which transports future racer video games (Wipeout, F-Zero, etc) to the tabletop. The player boards and tracks are cool, I wish there had been some sort of expansion with various racers we can attach to our boards...could use a little more variety, but it's fun and a unique idea.
