Hydro Thunder?

It definitely looks like a Midway arcade title...

It looks N64-like to me but isn't Hydro Thunder as the HUD is completely different.

It looks a bit like Quantum Redshift, but I don't think it is that...

An interesting game where giant animal-like robots tow steel sledges through sea, air, and land, but game play is a bit dull. Only released in Japan.

Never heard of it, I like the premise though.

Worth hunting down as a fan of giant robot animals that pull sleds?

Not really. It sounds a lot better than it plays. Fun for half an hour, but there are much better racing games on the system.

Torrent before you buy.

Looks to be around the £13 mark generally, on eBay anyway.
Torrent it is then, for now at least.
