It is notable amongst racing games for its wide and open tracks, and the resulting freedom offered to the player, and also for its excessive speed. Hi-Octane is rumored to begin life as something several Bullfrog programmers coded in free time, and then decided to improve the game and market it under the auspices of Electronic Arts. There are six tracks to race on, with names like New Chernobyl which hint at a dystopian futuristic world . Certain parts of the track allow to recharge vehicle's fuel, shields or ammo, although the vehicle has to slow down in order to fully benefit of the recharge. The different vehicles display different handling values in the front end but these are just for show, the underlying stats are the same for all the vehicles. Today, Hi-Octane can be run in a Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 environment using a very specific DosBox setup. It runs well in Windows 9x .
