GSY Video PC Xbox One

If you're a Virtua Racing nostalgic, chances are you've already purchased the excellent remeaster which was released on Nintendo Switch, but you might also be happy to know that Formula Retro Racing has just come out and it's a true love letter to the old arcade racing games of yesteryear. For €10.79, you get 8 circuits, one car model coming in different colors, 2 game modes (arcade and eliminator), 3 difficulty settings and the inevitable online leaderboards. Multiplayer is sadly absent, which is a bit of a shame as it would have reminded us of our time competing against other players at the old arcades, but it's hard to blame the one guy behind this game. Other than that, you get pretty much what you'd expect from such a title, no more, no less, but we've truly enjoyed our time playing. We'd like to thank Alan from Team VVV for letting us know about the game and sharing a code with us.

the "Start Your Engines" and "Time Extended" V.O. really pulled on my nostalgia strings.
have to agree no multiplayer is a shame, but understandable given its one guy behind it.
