"The neat thing about go-karts is their simplicity and
speed. These lightweight vehicles are barely more than engines on wheels,
capbable of taking hairpin turns at 100 mph. Microprose Software recognized the
potential fun in karting, and has just done the competition one better with its
release of Virtual Karts."
"Virtual Karts is a fun game, and arcade gamers should at
least take a look at it. For a different kind of racing experience, Virtual
Karts is a slick ride on a fast machine."
