Mad Dash Racing was a launch title for the original Xbox. The concept is similar to 1998's Running Wild (both games involve foot racing) except Mad Dash Racing mixes up the formula by making the player perform certain controller movements at certain times in the race to mimic actions such as climbing and swimming.

Racing abilities and characters

These players can easily bust through fractured doors and walls, and are a threat to other racers while bashing because they are nearly untouchable to attacks. Players who bash something will get a little boost of speed.

Dashers: These characters can run fast and dash up steep slopes as long as they have enough energy.




Gliders: These characters can overcome obstacles and avoid enemies by taking flight.




*Players may have all 3 abilities by collecting 10 meteor chunks. Players must be able to keep their juice bar or energy as full as possible by performing stunts or drinking Hex-A-Cola in order to bash, dash or glide.
