Furious Karting (XB) - Facts & Screens

by Thomas on Aug. 15, 2002 @ 5:40 p.m. PDT

WARNING: The following game features stunts, crazy "special moves" and fast race manoeuvres performed by professionals or under the supervision of professionals. ATARI and developers must insist that no one attempt to recreate or reenact any stunt or activity performed in this game…. Don't abuse chickens either! Wopping 47 screens together with the fact sheet below!

Furious Karting refreshes the too conventional racing genre by providing an explosive alternative racing experience. Driving skills and upgraded vehicles are not all that it takes to have fun.

"Are you a TNT or a Yellow Shark" - Furious karting is about taking part in a battle of clans and making your character become the leader. Watch the way you drive as acting and reacting towards other drivers has consequences on the story line.

Finding the best line and speeding up is not the only way to become the king of the track. Pulling out tricks, smashing other drivers with your base ball bat, spilling flammable oil on the tracks or calming down your opponents using the right icon gives you a glimpse of what makes this game so addictive.

Main features :

  • A karting game that brings an exciting racing experience focused on characters rather than cars. 2 teams, 8 different characters with upgradeable skills and behavior, all involved in a "Furious" racing challenge. Before driving choose your clan!
  • Up to 12 go-karts on track with fully animated characters.
  • A Compelling "Non-linear" scenario based game mode. The way you drive, react and behave toward others drivers will influence the 15 episodes of story.
  • An interactive "Hip Hop vs Rock" soundtrack. Impose the soundtrack of your team onto your opponents; drive them crazy and intensify the rivalry.
  • Exclusive iconic language system to provoke the other clan or congratulate your team mates while driving. Improve your Karma and get some new weapons.
  • Tricks system and "Mario kart like" special moves that make the race more fun. Driving skills are not all that it takes to make it.
  • Easy kart handling for instant fun, realistic physics for pure thrills.
  • A huge selection of environments, from classical outdoor circuits and stadiums to unexpected racing tracks with a cool atmosphere (supermarket, disco, ice rink…)
  • Addictive multiplayer modes, up-to 4 drivers, including an exclusive "Jam Battle" mode where players can upload their favorite tracks and make them part of the challenges.
  • A large variety of game modes include "Scenario", "Quick race", "Time Attack", and multiplayer modes.
  • AI based on human behaviour modelling, allowing for specific animations (driver ejection, emotional gestures, search of balance, special abilities, etc), and also races in tight packs, and fighting spirit. The AI gives the illusion that you're racing against humans.
