Operation Sports ranks the top five toughest racing car tracks to ever show up in a video game.
Lol. Once you master that shortcut on Rainbow Road (at least in Mario Kart 64), the track becomes a piece of cake - even if it's still way too long. On the Super Nintendo though? God, it was a bitch. Still, good article idea. I say 'idea' because I haven't really played any of the other tracks (could some one else comment on Nurburing and the GT4 track?), but it's good to see more hardcore focussed articles like this one.
F*CK RAINBOW ROAD, I ALWAYS FALL OFF
This made me chuckle
WipeOut should have many tracks on this list though. MANY.
Lol rainbow road is so easy.
@NoBias I would second that about WipeOut. Taken from all the games, the list could be 1-5 all WipeOut tracks.
I've never needed to take the shortcut, most of the people I raced against often kept falling off the track leaving me able to win easily, it's not that hard to stay on the track.
Not surprised Nordeschleife/Nurburgring got on their. To me it's a lot of fun and kind of easy, but I've done probably over a hundred laps if not much more around that place. To be good their, you need to know the track inside and out not to mention it's in the neighborhood of 14 miles in length. But I did have fun in the IA license in GT4 and went around "The Green Hell" in my 3rd try and only 10 sec off from gold.
There's some tough tracks in wipeout as well, can't remember their names though. The last track in the first Wipeout was a bitch to complete.
All the memories of me being annoyed at the Rainbow Road track when i was 5 :)
Heaven or Hell track on Jet Moto.
I remember my thumb being tired of pressing A for the 3 long laps on rr for n64
Any track from Wipeout HD
seconded ( the amount of time required to master them ... is something i gave up once i realised how much i needed )
the lava run in conkers live and reloaded......... but then i found out you have brakes.........
Have this guy not played f-zero gx? Those tracks require damn there god like skills to pass.
Seriously, to make a list like this and ommit that game is criminal.
there has to be a ton of tracks through the wipeout series to warrant a spot on this list!
I don't know, Rainbow Road especially on the N64 was never that bad, just long. Yoshi Valley on N64 gave me way more trouble than Rainbow Road, Bowser's Castle in just about every Mario Kart was pretty troublesome, too.
You will be spanked. Hard. Any error you make... You will get pwned by the cpu. Any time u go too fast on a complex track u either A: get owned by flying off course to ur doom, or B: Get owned by the track via shield degration due to constant gitting of track. Just try to get 1st place on the sapphire cup on ur first try on the first track. you will fail. hard :D.
Damn the freaking track, specially in GT2
