Remember the telly programme of R The G? Crap, wasn't it? Fortunately, though, the game is a sight better and comes in three multiload (groan) parts, which you get either once, twice or not at all per game (it's random, you see).

The water events (hovercrafts, speedboats, jet skis and inflatables) take place on a big lake, half scrolling horizontally, the other half vertically, with you racing against the computer. This bit would be hundreds better if it weren't for the annoying controls and puny graphics. The track events (all on different sorts of buggies) work with a sort of off-centre flip-screen top view, nice chunky graphics, ramps and bumps - and are spookily satisfying. And as for the assault course - well, it's essentially just a waggler, but quite good fun.

So to sum up, we're talking three averagely average sub-games - nothing special, although then again for a mere £2.99 you certainly are getting quite a lot of game for your moolah.
