Plot:
The game seems to be completely devoid of plot. AI opponents are unnamed and tracks don’t have specific locations. Try to come in first place. 

Gameplay:
The driving in Shanghai StreetRacer is oversimplified. No matter what surface you drive on, whether it’s grass or asphalt, the car moves at the same speed. There isn’t a handling penalty for driving off-road. 

No damage model is present. Smack into a wall at high speeds and the vehicle will be perfectly fine.

The game did ship with a multiplayer function. However, it is only LAN based. No online multiplayer was supported.
