Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Hard Drivin' series (2 titles)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Polygames/Atari/Tengen
RELEASED:         various
TYPE:             Racing (auto)
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          The first of the polygon-rendered racing sims, the
                  original coin-up took the arcades by storm.  Just about
                  every trick used in today's sophisticated 3D racers can
                  be seen here with the notable exception of texture

IMPRESSIONS:      It may look and play rather laughable now, and the
                  Genesis version isn't the best of the various ports, but
                  at least everything's here that I remember from the
                  arcades.  Give it a look, if only to see just how far
                  we've come since then.

VARIATIONS:       Hard Drivin' (1990, original game)
                  Race Drivin' (1993, sequel adds a track editor and a few
                    more driving challenges)

Quite underrated. (Score: 1)

I have to say that this is a game that is a lot better than most people say, sure I love underrated games, but this proves that racing games have evolved quite a bit in the last decade. At times the games can be bad, but they are fun and provide hours of gameplay. The graphics are sure good looking. A few more tracks and options would make this a well rounded game.

hard drivin is no shit. i found this game t be pretty hard but insanely fun, and you will too. i like jumping the bridge that is pictured on the 3rd row, far right. i never did make it past that damn loop. i almost made it once, but got hit by a semi. crashes are fun too, and are followed by instant replays. get this game.

Hey people! where the hell can i get the best genisis emulator? where can i find the ROM's? plz reply

this is such a cool game to play around with if ya have a few minutes to blow! just the fact that you make it all the way around the track is a great acomplishment! and makeing it around the loop is a particaly exciteing thing to do! still is really a crap game by todays standards so 1.5/5

These games are actually very good! I like racing games and it is fun to make your own track! A splitscreen palymode would have been great, but exept that this game is great!

Here's a fun little thing to do....

take a right to go to the stunt course, go down the hill and down the road. pull a 180 and jump the barn! More fun then actual gameplay!

Hard drivin' was the first "sim" game I took seriously at the arcades! the physics for the time were outstanding not to mention for the only 50 cents that it required to play a sit down full sim game like such it was a joy to play! the console is not as reactive as the arcade but its all there! and they even fixed the loop to loop glitch that killed you everytime in the arcade!

This game doesn't look or feel great at all how could you feel happy about a game that plays worse than its bastard relative in an arcade coffin box its worse than sad, its sick.

I'm sorry but I can't agree with everything you guys are saying.

Yes, Hard Drivin' is definitely fun (especially when it was released) and it actually matches quite well to the arcade original. And who can beat driving against yourself on ghost time, eh?

But, Race Drivin' can kiss my black ass. The graphics push the system too hard, making it a choppy, unfun experience. Then you have to deal with the fact that the tracks are floating in thin air! I guess you're supposed to "imagine" that the tracks are all put together and not just held up by puppet wires.

Hard Drivin' gets an 8.5 and Race Drivin' gets my butt.
