RC Pro-Am 2, Off-Road, Race Across America, just to name a few.

And top down racers that have multiplayer such as the awesome Micro Machines and Super Sprint.

Weren't all of those top down racers though? I wasn't familiar with other racing games that supported split screen.

Heck, the only splitscreen games I can think of are Ballblazer and Spy vs Spy. I'm sure there are more but it can't be very many on the NES. I could be wrong though.

It doesn't matter because ChatGPT doesn't know what Rad Racer 2 is and just cobbles together random crap associated with related keywords like "NES", "racing", "review", etc. Pointless to interrogate.

Race Across America is Pole Position style. RC Pro-Am 2 and Off-Road are isometric.

And now you’ve done your own review, and it seems there are a few things we disagree on.
