Dead Heat by Namco

Dead Heat

Dead Heat isn't the typical arcade driver. In fact, there is nothing typical about it. Dead Heat is an intense driving game that focuses on head-to-head competition. Every race is exciting and the thrill of tight races will have players scrambling for a re-match. Photos are taken of each player before the race and appear above their car during the race. This feature helps players identify their opponents quicker and heightens the competition. Players will know exactly who they are battling for first place with.

Namco's Dead Heat is the only arcade driver that incorporates social networking. Players that race each other are identified as "friends." The social networking tree expands as more and more friends race each other
