Atari’s birdseye view driving game turned out to be less enjoyable than I was expecting.
The top down view is okay and the general idea isn’t that bad; to chase after and capture the crims.
The problem, unfortunately, is in the controls. You don’t actually directly control the car itself. Instead you use the steering wheel to move a pointer a little way ahead of the car, which the car then continually drives toward.
I found this made for too much oversteer and made the driving experience too much like driving on ice. Top down racers tend to be a bit skatey anyway due to the perspective, this just made poor controls worse.
