Despite its Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) license, Midway's CART Fury Championship Racing is an arcade game through and through. Players looking for a CART simulation will not find it here. Instead, they'll discover an easy-to-play game in which a broad appeal is hindered by several flaws. For every positive aspect of this game, there's a negative one that more than neutralizes it. While the gameplay itself is very straightforward--reminiscent of Midway's Rush and Hydro Thunder series--its menus are quite frustrating. Although the graphics are good, the sound is extremely poor--the music isn't suited for CART and there's a noticeable lack of variety in sound effects. While the game features 15 real-life CART racers and seven actual tracks, the racers behave nothing like their namesakes, and the fictional tracks are uninspired. The artificial intelligence deficiency is the most criminal. The game's AI causes the computer-controlled drivers to behave very predictably, which makes several of your opponents too easy to defeat. The rest of your opponents are just as predictable in their dominance. This makes game sessions either unchallenging or frustrating. The game's numerous faults make it difficult to recommend to serious racing game fans. It does have Midway's trademark user-friendly appeal, making it an interesting choice for casual gamers looking for easy-to-learn fun. --Raymond M.
