Vanishing Point is a console based racing game released on the Dreamcast and the PlayStation. It was developed by Clockwork Games and published by Acclaim.

Summary[edit]

The game is provided with peculiar car physics, which can be experienced through various game modes, tracks and Cars. In the main game mode, Tournament, there is a bronze (2 tracks / 2 laps), silver (3 tracks / 2 laps) and gold (3 tracks / 3 laps) championship for each main vehicle. In each race of a championship, there is a time to beat and the other vehicles in the track are just traffic to avoid. Winning championships unlocks not only the next ones (Heat 1 unlocks Heat 2 and Heat 2 unlocks Heat 3) but also game features, such as cars, game modes and racing options. Starting with 2 cars, the player will then conquer almost all the game content through these championships. In another game mode, Single Race, the player can unlock the 8 main tracks, in their 4 different versions (Forward, Reverse, Mirrored FWD and Mirrored REV), by simply winning a race with a random car.
