Pack-in Video's hard-hitting PC Engine lineup was so stacked that a few of their quality titles kind of slipped through the cracks. Even the company's number one nut-job fan (me) never gave much thought to Road Spirits, as it doesn't receive nearly as much attention as fellow PCE drivers Out Run, Victory Run, and Final Lap Twin. Heck, even when RS is mentioned, people usually just confuse it with Racing Damashii. But after finally bothering to do a little research on it, I decided it was a game that I needed to pick up. Images did it for me: I really like the nice, light colors RS employs as well as the variety it presents in stage-to-stage vehicle design.
Oh, and after each stage, you're "rewarded" with a "girl picture."
