RC Cars puts you in control of three different RC Cars: a Bigfoot-style truck, a six-wheeled Hummer, and a racecar. You only begin with access to the Bigfoot truck, and you’ll need to complete levels in order to play with the other two vehicles. The cars each have strengths and weaknesses, and handle quite differently. However, it would’ve been nice to have a bit more variations.
The environments are nice and diverse, however. Throughout the game, you’ll race over many different types of terrain, from beaches to busy roads and so on. And, of course, there are lots of obstacles thrown in your way to prevent you from top placing in races. Since the cars are little RC cars, the obstacles tend to be things like pop cans and other litter, people, and even real cars.
The game also boasts a pretty deep garage mode that allows you to upgrade your racer as you progress through the stages. You can purchase new parts throughout the game, increasing your speed, handling and acceleration as you move on to harder stages.
