Oh, so when you say Mode 7 you say the Jaguar was at least comparable graphics wise?

Not sure how to explain Mode 7 any better than showing some screens:









The Sega 32x and Atari Jaguar (the "tween" consoles) are both capable of Mode 7 style graphics, which is essentially a large sprite being rotated and scaled to simulate a 3D, flat, landscape.

Atari Karts does a great job with this style of graphics, where as BC Racers on the 32x has some serious frame rate issues. The Jaguar is a monster when it comes to scaling sprites, far superior to what is capable on the SNES.

I wonder if the Jaguar is capable of something like this...

Possibly. It doesn't look like it's using any "real" 3D, only precomputed or static 2D bitmaps.

Lol. I think the same could be said for Checkered Flag, but I haven't played SC3D yet to be able to compare.

Well, if you thought Checkered Flag's framerate sucked, wait until you see Supercross 3D...

Well I finally got Atari Karts. I actually think it controls better than Super Mario Kart, but it still can't hold a candle to Super Burnout. Seriously, Super Burnout is insane, what a gem. I hope someday gamers recognize it like they do AvP and T2k.

Finally bought, and played through Supercross 3D! Man, if the frame rate wasn't so pitiful, this game could have really been something. The controls are spot on, and would have been even better if the frame rate didn't suck. Still, not a bad game, just not good either.
