Touge (??) is a series of touge racing games published by Atlus in Japan since 1995. The series was originally developed by Cave, however Touge R was developed by Nextech. As best sellers, Touge Max: Saisoku Drift Master and Touge Max 2 received re-releases in Sony's The Best line of budget range games. The gameplay focuses on import sports cars driving downhill in Japanese mountain passes using the drifting technique on curves.
‘Touge' literally means a mountain road. To understand the concept behind this game, one must first understand that the Japanese bureaucracy (for reasons of its own) has built a network of exquisitely paved, totally useless narrow winding roads through the country's mountains. Well, maybe not totally useless; motor enthusiasts and drag-racers frequent these mountain paths, and this, of course, is what the long-running Touge (a.k.a. Peak Performance) series is all about. The Xbox version looked very sharp with lovely vistas, nice scenery and good car models. The handling felt a bit stiff, but this will probably be improved by the time of release, later this year. The game has a Gran Turismo style play mode in which players purchase a vehicle and can then later upgrade it with custom parts/tuning.
