One of the first "historical racing games" ever made, 1000 Miglia from Italian developer Simulmondo is a great racing game that lets you experience the thrills of the "Mille Miglia," a famous annual "one thousand miles" racing event in Italy in which all the racers must use period cars - no sleek modern F1 here. As in the actual race, you race cars from the 1927-1933 period in one long race around Italy, passing Brescia, Ferrara, and Rome.

The game offers excellent graphics and a lot of depth. Before each race, you can take up to 6 spare parts with you from a wide selection of parts including spark plugs, spare tyres, fuel pumps, fan belts, extra batteries, dynamos, and more. The intro screen before each leg of the race is full of good information including brief description of the leg (e.g. "generally flat course with a few difficult 'S' bends"), length, road surface, and weather forecast. The controls are easy to learn, and the presentation is intuitive with all vital information presented in the bottom of the screen. If you enjoy unique racing games or driving period cars, 1000 Miglia is a fun, highly underrated, and unique racer you will probably enjoy. Highly recommended.
