Slipstream 5000 Software Refinery, Ltd., The / Front Street Publishing, Gremlin Interactive Ltd. 1995

Conventional motor racing has yielded to the advances of thrust drive technology. Popularity for Slipstream racing is at its peak. Successful flyers quickly become icons and heroes. Race fans flock in their millions to the circuit-side stadiums hoping to catch a glimpse of the latest anti-grav machines which defy all laws of motion. The track's prepared, the crowd are hustling for the best seats and the drivers and commentators are all psyched and hungry for action. It's worth remembering that Slipstream was released on PC 6 months before WipEout appeared on the PlayStation and its blend of speed and smart 3D graphics with that all important playability still make it one of the most original and enjoyable PC racers around. There are ten exciting and varied circuits to choose from. You can fly through the Grand Canyon at over 300 mph or hurtle down the Thames past St Pauls and the Houses of parliament. The graphics still look fantastic and on a pentium, Slipstream really flies through an array of volcanoes, forests, canyons, beaches and bustling cityscapes. There are also ten different Slipstreamers to choose from, champions in their own right from across the globe. Each has their own unique vehicle that is honed to individual specifications and a unique personality that affects their strategy and tactics. A very nice feature is the ability of picking up weapons during flight to keep your opponents under control. You're able to upgrade your racer after every track. The CD version included extra speech.
