Do you know of some good game in the Quarentine style? (Not taxi is the point - it's about car like quest, if you know what I mean...)

Big thanks!

Heard of "Grand Theft Auto" - a little different from quaratine but still very good. Drive around cities doing jobs for gangsters and things. Very good. RRP.£30. Get it of me for £10!!!!

Was Quarantine the one with the yellow taxi running over people?  If so, and/or you're looking for a realistic 1st person driving sim then perhaps Need For Speed (1 or 2) or for a more 'arcadey' approach Screamer Rally.

I do apologise - Screamer Rally doesn't actually exist!  Actually it could be quite good if it did but it doesn't so it isn't!

What I actually entered was a mix of Sega Rally and Screamer II...

What a fool!!!

If you want to play missions driving a car and shooting other cars, try Interstate '76. The makers just released a new add-on pack (I '76 Nitro) and supports 3D and whatever you want...

You can create your own missions and equip your car any way you choose!!! Very nice!

I checked Activision's site, and there's also something about Interstate '76 Arsenal.

Go here:

http://www4.activision.com/games/arsenal/

Matvey, if you want me to post an answer, please reject griffitt's answer to free up the question...

The game is worth it, for the music alone! Awesome. Add to this sublime graphics and huge fun, and you know why I like it so much!

Kind regards,
Simon

I checked some more:

It seems I'76 Arsenal is the combination of I'76 Gold (the 3D-enhanced version of the original, so the current full-version of the game) and the Nitro Pack (the current Add-on)

now you knwo it all ! Go for it, you won't regret it !

You wanted a game like Quarantine,
My suggestion is "INTERSTATE 76" by ActiVision

yeah, just one I seem to recall,

if you type "getdown" while playing, all the bad guys come after you, but when you die, you still complete the mission successfully!

see ya,
