It’s been awhile since I got a new N64 game. I’m excited to welcome Beetle Adventure Racing to the fold. I’ve never played it back in the nineties/early zeros, but I’ve heard positieve things about it. It’s supposed to be one of the N64 hidden gems. I’ve played it for about ten minutes and it is definitely worthy of further investigation. One gripe I have with racing games is the lack of a camera on the hood. I feel a behing the car camera generally works well, but sometimes I want a little more in on the action. A bumper cam always feels a little weird to me. The best is a behind the wheel camera, but I appreciate most developers omitting this mode because a lot of the screen is lost to the car interior. A hood cam is then a welcome alternative.
