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. 

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.
