Top Gear 3000 Super Nintendo

TOP GEAR 3000
Released on April 27th 1995
A review by Cam3ron36
Last edited on september 12th

Platform: SNES

Publisher: Kemco

Genre: Futuristic racing

Players: 1-4(using a multitap)


Just a note: I felt the need to come back and edit this review after making my top gear rally review, it was lacking and short. Enjoy.

Okay, Here is the third installment of the top gear series: Top Gear 3000.

The Game is absolutely wonderful and I couldn't speak of a game with more speed than this one, I know it's probably off but by the end of the the hard races your car is apparently reaching 700 Km/H. Like I've said, that's a stretch, no way you are going that fast, but asides from that, that is the headline of the game: "Speed"


Video note:^^^^ That is only like level 6 of the game out of like 70 so it's not to fast yet, but look at the change in that from the original VVVV


Video Note: Well, okay, it's not much of a change, it's top gear, it owns!

In top gear 3000, You're given the option to play by yourself through story on Easy, Hard or Medium. You can also play through story with a second player, surprisingly the second player can be another person or an AI player(Not something you see much) I personally find this player 2 AI thing neat, but very frustrating. The AI player gets every upgrade you buy and is always going to beat you pretty much
Top Gear 3000 is also one of the few games on the super nintendo to support multi-tap play, yes the snes had a multi-tap, but it was only supported in like 19 games or something like that.
In the 4 player mode, you can play with 1-4 players, but there will always be a four way split screen and only four racers.(story has 20 racers including you). It is a neat feature but it's just something for a little contest, it has about 16 races seperate from story that just pits you against the other three racers only unlike story, you can't get eliminated. joy!

along the way of the story mode of the game, you get a purchase screen, much like in offroad where you can purchase upgrades for your vehicle, and along the way, you get even more upgrades added for purchase.
Such sections for items you can buy are Paint(Free), engine, tires, armor, gearbox & boost. These are used to generally alter your car and the AI has a set pattern they move along for purchases so stay ahead of them with technology, and you are good.
Top Gear 3000 also feature in game items you can unlock as you go and purchase, you start out with a booster, then you get a jump device, an attractor device, an infared ray & finally a warp device, you can cycle through these using "L" & "R"

One last point I have to make for this is the charger mats, you come along flashing Red & Blue mats throughout each level, one charges your car battery and the other charges your armor, often times, you have to slow down on the battery mat to fill your meter fully.

Sound is the last thing we will visit as always, the sound is awesome, one of my favourite game soundtracks.
Now, For your viewing pleasure, I present you the music.


Video note: I apoligize, I can't really find just plain music for this one. Above is the menu music.

Overall, It's a brilliant game and definitely worth trying.
Below is all I've left from the old review, Enjoy & comment.




1st place: 100,000 credits
2nd place: 80,000 credits
3rd place: 70,000 credits
4th place: 60,000 credits
5th place: 50,000 credits
6th place: 40,000 credits
7th place: 30,000 credits
8th place: 20,000 credits
9th place: 10,000 credits
10th place: Qualifies, but no credits. You can collect bonuses, though.

Bonuses:

Bonus A: Simple, boost across the finish line.
Value: 30 000
Bonus B: I still don't know this one.
Value: 50 000
Bonus C: Don't run into any other cars during the race.
Value: 70 000
Bonus D: Don't crash into any thing like Trees, pickets, etc. so bassically stay on the road.
Value: 40 000
Bonus E: If you don't leave the road, This ones yours.
Value: 20 000

Helpful hints:
1) Try to get as many bonuses in a race as possible.
2) Never buy anything under category 4 because their crap Save your money for the best.
3)Try the easy difficulty first.

and also you get more tracks the higher the difficulty.

Enjoy top gear 3000, It's a must try.

Re: Top Gear 3000 Super Nintendo

Good review cam. I remember playing this and thinking if I am going 700 km/h how come i am not a plane instead?

"Top Gear 3000 is also one of the few games on the super nintendo to support multi-tap play, yes the snes had a multi-tap, but it was only supported in like 19 games or something like that."

There are more than 50 games which support the Super Multitap.
