Following the unprecedented success of London Racer (over 100,000 units sold on PSX and PC formats in the UK), Davilex today announced it's latest arcade racing title. USA Racer will hit PlayStation and PC early 2002 and has a few surprises in store!
In true arcade racing style, USA Racer takes you on a fast and furious road race through some of America's most famous cities. 11 photo-realistic tracks are waiting to challenge your racing skills and nerves to the limit. Choose from 6 all American characters, each with their own unique personalities and vehicles! From the sleek sports cars of Hollywood to tow-trucks in Chicago, buckle up and prepare for the ride of your life!

Not only will USA Racer take you on a tour of the bustling metropolises, but also provides you with the opportunity to show of your 4x4 driving skills by sending you on a bone rattling ride through some of America's more wilder scenery. Stunning off road tracks twist their way through the Grand Canyon, Yellow Stone and Yosemite National Parks. Get ready for wild jumps and a rough ride!

Unique vehicle physics will allow for breath taking jumps, high-speed crashes and flips. See you vehicle loose it's shine and the damage increase as you bump and crash your car while performing heart stopping over taking and miss timed corners, but beware, too much damage will see your battered car splutter to a holt before you have reached your goal!
