For some reason it was Time Warner Interactive that took on V.R. for the Sega Saturn.
The result? A steaming pile of shit, not even vaguely funny.
A sad day, and an opportunity missed all around.

CD case, Sega Saturn CD-ROM disc, colour manual, spine card.

Dammit! Even the Sega Ages 2500 version is a let down: the car slides all over the place and the visuals are a horrible mess. Witness the 2P mode: the backgrounds flicker so much it's embarassing.
What the f**k is going on? Can't the PS2 handle Virtua Racing?

PS2 case, PlayStation 2 DVD-ROM disc, 10-page colour booklet, 'Sega Ages' notebook card.
