Today is a weird one because it came out not May 9th but December 9th in 1988 but I don’t have a lot of May titles and an abundance of December so here we are. But like any racing game; it’s awesome and should be enjoyed by all.
“Michael Andretti’s World GP features 16 unique courses located in Brazil, San Marino, Monaco, Mexico, Canada, United States, France, England, West Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Japan, and Australia. Each track can be played either in single player mode or in head-to-head 2-player action on a split screen. There are 4 different cars to choose from and manual shifting is a consideration during racing, a facet often overlooked in simpler NES racing game scenarios. While the star of the game is Michael Andretti, who pops in before each race to offer useful advice about the current track, the game also has appearances by many other F-1 racing stars.”
