A classic from my younger years. A popular arcade title of its time, how does it hold up today? A bit different of a game for me to look at being an arcade title, but I played this so much back in the day I had to give it a revisit. Fun casual arcade racing, and the announcer is still as awesome as ever!
This game barely works on Windows 10, a lot of special video editing to make it work. Maybe we could use a remastered edition!

Thanks for reviewing this somewhat obscure game, at least now! Definitely had fun with this!
Windows 3.1, WinG, Win32s
This and Command & Conquer were the first computer games I had… All I did was hold down the accelerator and bounce off the walls XD
Such a gem of a channel!
Man, this is one of the first games I ever played. Oh, the memories.
OMG! Like advanced Pole Position. Love the "TIME EXTENDED" call. I was an Andretti fan, so I would NEVER have played this game. HAHAHA!!
If you love announcers like that or rather even better ones and good arcade racing games which also benefit from driving via steering wheel I highly recommend to you to maybe even review the DOS game Whiplash (a.k.a. Fatal Racing). It features an SVGA mode and the cars available in that game even handle differently and you can do pitstops.
Try running it in an emujlator called PCem. You would have to install windows 95/98 inside the emulator, and select a voodoo card or something like that. Might work better for you.
🥰 Hello Childhood!
I had this game and totally forgot about it. It was included in a box set which also had grand prix 2 in it (which was much too hard for me).
Since I live in Austria and didn't understood English I always wondered what an Al Unser is
I remember this game! Used to play it on my Hot Wheels themed PC when I was little!
Great channel, love your content.
Who else got this from the "Racing's Greatest Thrills!" combo pack?
Who's gonna be a boss and convert these for use in ICR?
Better yet, convert them to NR2k3 so we can run them with the NRF 2020 Indycar mod.
How long did Al Unser Jr. race for? I had Al Unser Jr's Turbo Racing for the NES as a kid.
CART didn't have jumps? Have you seen those pictures of Michael Andretti bounding over the curbs at Surfers Paradise in the mid '90s?
The opponent names (other than Little Al's, obviously) seem to be anagrams of real drivers: Dongor = Gordon, Sellnam = Mansell, Halra = Rahal, etc.
I have a suggestion for you. original rFactor has a great Formula One mod called SRM F1 1990. I really suggest you do this one in a featurette style like this video. Here's a small clip to give you an idea of the detail… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfb1wQKuAqU
Seeing an old British production company and a broadsheet newspaper being snuck in. I guess this was made by a British developers for them to sneek those two in
Whenever I see fictional tracks in a game, I try to see if they got the idea from a real one. Track 1 is pretty obvious, just a rectangle. In my opinion, 5 looks like Road Atlanta, 9 like Kyalami.
I remember having a collection of demo games for windows. In a virtual space station you would walk around to spacy music and select the demo you wanted to try depending on the room you were in.
Al Unser only had one track but what does a 7 year old care?
Had a quick search for it: https://archive.org/details/cdrom-win95-game-sampler
I can remember a racing arcade game in the 1970 at our local tourist attraction place. it was pre video style, it operated by a light behind frosted glass with the steering wheel operating a mechanical arm with your car attach to it. the track would appear to come to you in a continual curve with arrival cars coming at you a bit like space invaders do and you dodged them. it was probably built in the 1960's or perhaps earlier. it was very very clunky and vague, and completely uninspiring. but it was all there was, and we would still jump on it and have a go. 🙂
I remember this game from my childhood. Like most racing games, it took a back seat to my obsession of F1 World Grand Prix, but I enjoyed it. Somewhat recently I downloaded it, but even with the fastest cars and not replacing Unser Jr., it was very easy to dominate the championship. When I was a kid it was the right difficulty for me, so that was disappointing. My big complaint with the driving is that it's basically impossible to put in a medium amount of steering lock… I know it's a keyboard game, but they could've done better.
I think the announcer is actually the voice of Al Unser Jr.
My older cousin had this on his PC and I played the shit out of it whenever I was over there.
Someone needs to recreate these circuits for a modern sim.
It sounds like Emerson Fittipaldi saying "Congratulations. You've beaten the lap record." Certainly sounds Brazilian.
This game was packaged with the first PC I ever bought in 1999! i found the game so frustrating and undriveable I only played it once or twice and it went in the trash!
It reminds me of that hovercraft game that came with Windows back then.
Oh dear god, i had this back in the day.
Had totally forgotten about it. Thank you for igniting an old memory 👍
Looks like you're running too much toe-out 🙂
The thing I remember about this game is that you could use mouse movement for steering and maybe even throttle/brake, to get analog control without a joystick or wheel. It worked really well, great fun.
