In an alternate 1976 where the oil crisis only got worse, you've got a funkadelic dystopia where people have strapped weapons to their vehicles and spout poetry. My kinda combat racing! ● Consider supporting LGR on Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/LazyGameReviews ● Social links: https://twitter.com/lazygamereviews http://www.facebook.com/LazyGameReviews Music used is from the I-76 soundtrack.

The only real problem with the GOG release is they needed to code an fps limit of 30fps regardless of renderer.

Loved this game. Want to go buy it again now.
Are you kidding me? Interstate '76, a vehicular combat game made by activision. This is a prequel to Vigilante 8! i mean, even the characters has almost the same look!

Huh...I was thinking this kinda looked like MechWarrior but thought that was just a sign of the times. Wasn't expecting to hear it uses the same engine.

I swear I'm gonna learn how to use the Unreal Engine and make a remake of this game. Also Hi-Octane.

Really reminds me of an early vigilante game

This needs to be remade with the engine from the Mad Max game.

Yo, Vigilante 8 is a spinoff of Interstate '76? I did not know that.

Hands down one of the best games of the era. I had DSL through my college at the time and dominated the online play (the lava drop and rear firing mortar where one hell of a deadly combo).
Peter Hruska (3 months ago)
this game was pretty hard
kenthed45 (3 months ago)
Im surprised you didn't mention how this game takes a lot of notes from the classic, Steve Jackson's Car Wars. You can really tell from the game's initial premise, and the car statistics sheets when customizing your car.

Interstate 76 was my favourite game for a long time. Interstate 82 sucked balls.

I dominated the online multiplayer for I'76. I went by Misery Machine, and was one of the best players in the world for a couple of years.

This game is now older than 1976 was when it was first released

I got a demo of this game when I was 7, it was epic :D

I'm so glad you did this review! This was a blast from the past. I remember getting a demo of this game in a magazine. Loved it ! This was one of the few vehicular action games at that time, and possibly the only one where you could load weapons on the cars! I think there was Twisted Metal for the Play station but on PC this might have been the only one those days... Cheers and best wishes Clint! Sid *Oops just saw the entire clip. I had forgotten about streets of sim city :)

I liked the period,but I like them now more.2005-2012 was pretty dark though (with some notable exceptions).
Looks much better and more fun than Fallout 76

This review has made me reconsider this game. When I was younger I thought the game looked annoying and uninteresting.
bombatomba77 (3 months ago)
Man, this game is something. For the longest time after I bought it I wasn't even able to install it (it would error out at the end), but I refused to return it to Babbages, even though I also really wanted Heavy Gear (and that box was awesome). I kept tweaking settings and retrying with every update, but nope. Totally worth it in the end.

Is good to know that one of my all time favorite games Vigilante 8 had its roots on this classic masterpiece. Saddens me to know the fact that vigilante 8 will probably never get ported to the current or next gen of consoles, nor it had the same amount of sequels as Twisted Metal had, which was a far inferior game.
Lerssinen (3 months ago)
now this is a game which gives me good memories and wibes !! It was still an "open world" as new as it was back then and i enjoyed it troughout the story.. A good story in a game is important as an gameplay itself and this had both ! a masterpiece.

I finished the demo version of this game a gazillion times at a time when I couldn't afford original copies. A few years later, as I was walking down the video game isle, I came across its sequel, Interstate 82, which was being sold for cheap (10 Euros). Purchased it and since then I played it from start to finish about 4-5 times, and enjoyed it every time. In the sequel, you can also get out of your car and hijack other cars, which brings a new dimension. Anyway, it is the gameplay that sets this series apart. Here's hoping there will be a remastered version of this.
Wallipalloo (3 months ago)
What a fantastic review. This is one of those games that missed me growing up. I'd heard about it, read about it, but for some reason or another, never played it despite it sticking with me all those years. The review had me seriously pumped for the game. Then I heard "GOG," and lo and behold, it's on sale there for a paltry 2 bucks. Now *that's* poetry.

It's funny you call the pistol a desperation weapon, it was actually the most OP thing in the game. The way the pistol worked was anything that had a green or yellow life bar was immune; once it was in the red, though, the pistol could finish the driver of the car off with impunity. Combine this with the fact that fire damage bypassed armor, and the fact that ANY damage to internal car systems, even something as inconsequential as a single tire, was interpreted by the game as putting that car in the red, and boom. I was a part of an I76 multiplayer gang that exploited this quirk of the game to use the pistol and napalm to do battle with the stream of cheaters who used hex editing to give their cars infinite armor and chassis reinforcement. I made a lot of friends out of that experience, and had a lot of great times as a member of the I76 online community. Many of those same people. along with myself, were invited to beta test Nitro Pack and the sequel, Interstate '82. A dubious honor, considering how that game turned out, but an honor nonetheless.This game's disc stayed in my car for years, even after the gang and I had moved on to other things. The music is just as good playing on the radio in a real car as it is in the game.

Thanks For Refreshing My Childhood. I used to have demo of this game then played the full version of the game and realised how hard this game is I mean it was so realistic for it's own time (change in handling when your car gets too much damaged). Seriously This Was the Gta In 3d Back then.

Review interstate 82 pleeeeease
Fones R Phunny (3 months ago)
That first poem is so terrible. Wheels wear down constantly even while driving normally and you're not doing a lot of normal driving in this game. "Infinite" is really one of the worst ways to describe wheels in this game.
XH1927 (3 months ago)
Wheels don't wear at all, tires do. Go home, silly child.

1:30 when to use each system, and when. Lol jk LGR the only screw up I’ve ever found in any of your vids keep up the good work

@LGR: if you line your car properly with the enemy, you can get a one shot kill with the pistol.

The pistol is the best thing in the game, you can kill the driver and keep the car in good condition so salvaged parts don't need to be repaired

Excellent review. I still get fuzzies from this game's style. Everything from the stylized characters that totally still hold up, to how all the menus look like real world objects. It's so good!

I forgot all about this game until I stumbled across it on your channel. Such a fantastic game. Will have to track it down to play it again. Thanks for this video!!

I remember this as a kid and seeing how awesome the game looked on the box. I wouldn't say it was a great game but for it's time it was awesome driving those 70s cars and the environments were soo good for a 90s game.

This is one of my all time favorite games....It begs for an update with modern gaming engines....But need to keep the same story line and game play.

This game came with a video card I bought back in '97 or '98. I sucked ass at it, but I still loved it. Watch that shit, cowboy!
Ryan Commins (10 months ago)
This was my first online gaming experience. Wrecked fools all day with the winnebago equipped with Dr. Radar missiles. Most of the best weapons were radar based, but you dropped off of radar when you cut the engine with the S key. People always thought I was cheating because they didn't realize this. Love this game.
grimmriffer (10 months ago)
Using the pistol allowed you to kill a car's driver rather than blowing it up - yielding more salvage. It worked best when the target had already taken a good pasting, presumably trashing its armour.

Yo, can you do a review on Nitro?? I also need to bring to attention that Nitro now has full router support (original I'76 still does not unfortunately) and a very active online community .. We host about 3 events a week. Check out the forums at interstate76.com for more details

I played this game so much back in the day (and i still do, i bought a new copy on gog). The secret vehicles (tank, helicopter, ufo, even a hot air balloon) are awesome, lol

This is one of my favorite games of all time! Not sure how it holds up today though but a great story and soundtrack goes a long way.

An amazing game
2ane (1 year ago)
Still one of the my most fondly remembered games. The whole action-sim genre with its complex missions during which you werent allowed to save was a blast and needs to make a proper comeback like classic RPGs did recently. btw, that Pistol is incredibly powerful as it allows you to shoot the drivers once the vehicle is in the "red" giving you more to salvage. Very useful with flame-throwers as they instantly destroy the armor of enemies.

That dedicated poetry button reminds me of the reverend character from Call of Juarez, who had a bible in addition to his usual weapons. You could be walking down the street shooting gunslingers while quoting bible passages. Felt epic.

wait... is this a Vigilante 8 Pre-Quel?!
Raze Game Developer (1 year ago)
Hey LGR! Might I ask if you remember what setup you ran this on? I've never seen this game run with such a high framerate before
Mikko Kukkonen (1 year ago)
Wow, I played I76 a LOT back in the late 90s. I loved the theme and the music, my god was the music good! I was really into 70s stuff and muscle cars back then (owned a couple later on), and this game was perfect for me. I still got the case with the CDs stashed at my parents house, but sadly the original box is missing. I used to pop that game CD in my stereo from time to time and listen to that groovy funk.
