Larry Ragland’s 4×4 Challenge
Are you ready for high speed offroad competition in the only game endorsed by
Larry Ragland, winner of 5 Baja 1000 races? Race on 8 different short tracks
designed by offroad pros in 15 different high-powered 4×4’s, for 3 different
championships. The races are long, the competition is fast, and the outlook is
grim. All you got is your skills and unerring faith in your machine. Are you
ready for Larry Ragland’s 4×4 Challenge?
Larry Ragland’s 4×4 Challenge (LRC from now on) is basically an arcade racer
in a short-track offroad setting. Usually set inside a stadium or such, it
features some unknown-make vehicles (no adjustments allowed) each with
slightly different ratings in handlings, acceleration, and more. The courses
are very reminiscent of the ones in LEADFOOT (by Ratbag Interactive).
The tracks are your typical supercross type-tracks… Lots of curves, jumps,
and a few straights with switchbacks and more switchbacks. The tracks are
different enough as some are longer with higher speed whereas some are low-
speed with lots of switchbacks.
You get an arcade mode where you’re supposed to keep up with the clock, or you
can play the championship, where you race a field of 5 other AI drivers across
a series of events on the various tracks. When you win one championship, you
unlock the next one, which is longer and features a couple new tracks. There
are a total of 3 championships across 8 different tracks, up to 6 laps each.
The vehicles in LRC are pretty tough, but they are NOT indestructible. This
game actually models damage to your vehicle. There are four components you can
damage: front tires/suspension, engine, transmission, and rear
tires/suspension. The usual cause for damage is smacking into walls too hard,
though hard collisions with another vehicle will do damage. Damaged cars don’t
run quite as fast and generates black smoke. The parts go from green to yellow
to red, and if you’re really bad… black.
Multiplayer is only supported as 2-player split-screen, or 6-player LAN.
Internet play is not supported.
