"What cost this game a lot of points was the fact that just about every level looked the same. There was very little variety in the appearance of the different locations, which can make the game pretty monotonous after awhile. Still, the smooth controls give a great feeling of speed and involvement in the game. If you're looking for a new style of 3-D game, check this out."


1) Lens flare effect - Lens flare is the light scattered in lens systems through generally unwanted image formation mechanisms, such as internal reflections (electric lamp light, sun) scattering from material inhomogeneities in the lens. (You can see many small round lights flare trough movie camera lens).

2) Popularized in the movie Easy rider (1969).

3) Other earliest games with lens flare effect is No Respect, I-War, TOCA Touring Car  Championship, Andretti racing (only Windows version), Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Mizzurna Falls.

4) Emulated in: ePSXe
