Argonaut’s entry in the racing genre using the Tom Cruise Days of Thunder movie licence. Here is your chance to become cocky Cole Trickle as you race around various circuits from the Daytona 500 to Phoenix. Although in-game graphics are rendered in 3D, they are quite primitive even for its time (e.g. compared to Papyrus’ 1989 Indianapolis 500). Overall, Days of Thunder is a mediocre racer, not very inspiring at all. Watching the movie will probably give you more adrenaline rush than this disappointing game. Too bad the movie license wasn’t utilized to its full potential — cut-scenes from the movie that follow the plot, for example, would have made the game a lot more interesting. Too bad.
