One of the best racing games on the NES, and supporting 4 PLAYERS, Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's Super Off-Road is legendary. A port of the arcade games (complete with a wheel and a gas pedal), no excitement is lost on the way to the home console.
Have you played this game? What do you think of it? Is this your only exposure to the Ironman?
If you've beat it (after 99 Races), put a score here! 014480 Mr_Mustache ($212000+ - 10/14/13)
That screen really is good, and the music in that game; I've never heard anyone talking about it. So good. Hopefully we can wrangle enough of you dudes for Rochester in '14 so we can break out some 4p action.
I got in the habit of seeing when Ivan was on one of his "there is no chance of you beating me" runs, and I just took my time going around the track. At that point, when money is no object, there is no apparent penalty between finishing 2nd or 4th. I always thought that 2nd was BETTER than 3rd (like, you don't lose a Continue or something), but its all the same. Conserve Nitros, live to fight another day. Beat the game. Tell your friends.
I recall seeing the arcade unit of this game at a local swimming pool when I was very young. At the time it was the most advanced video game I had ever seen, so I was fascinated by it... but never actually played it, just watched other kids do so. I've always meant to buy the SNES version, but I get the feeling the game doesn't hold up, so it's probably best left as a memory of wonderment.
