Power Drive is a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive game that was released in 1992. The game revolves around a futuristic street racer who must compete in various races to win money and prizes. The objective of the game is to win races and accumulate money, while avoiding obstacles and competitors on the track.

In Power Drive the game contains five different stages, each with their own unique courses. These stages include Factory Act (a course populated by factory equipment), Mountain Act (where the terrain is mountainous), Aquatic Act (where you must race boats instead of cars), Highway Act (an extremely fast freeway) and City Act (which has more twists and turns than any other stage). The courses also have pitfalls such as bridges which need to be crossed or oil slicks that slow your vehicle down.

At the start of each level, players are given an amount of time in which to complete it, as well as the opportunity to choose from one of several vehicles with different strengths and weaknesses. Racing cars can range from stock types that offer good balance of speed and handling, or tricked-out sport cars for those seeking greater speed at the cost of agility. Players can also choose from boats for aquatic courses or large trucks for mountain courses. In addition to choosing a vehicle, players also get to pick from one of several items such as power hearts that restore energy points, nitro boosts for an extra edge, invisibility cloaks that make you difficult to hit and more. Additionally, there are multiple skill levels available which provide varying degrees of difficulty depending on how skilled a player is.

Power Drive also includes other factors like weather conditions which effect visibility during racing, fuel tanks which need refilling during longer races and a split-screen "dual play" mode where two players can race against each other using multiple screens linked up to one single console. It also allows up to 8 players through link cable systems so racing against friends is easy.

Overall Power Drive offers a fun racing experience with plenty of variety including different types of vehicles, skills levels available will offer both beginners and pro’s something interesting: challenging but not too hard so it won’t become repetitive easily; many tracks providing lots of surprises; additional features like nitro boosts and invulnerability shields; dual screen play available; multi-player capability possible , are just some reasons why this classic Sega title has remained popular after these many years!
