from backdrops to your car is very well drawn and animated.

When the finish line has been finally crossed, it has to be said that Team 17 have come up with a winner. Everything about this game is just brilliant – it looks good, sounds good and plays as well as any racer I have yet seen. Do yourself a favour, buy Challenge, have hours of tyre screeching fun and save a dollop of dosh at the same time. Awesome.
Amiga Format
There is nothing us reviewers like more than whingeing about the price of games, so when a brand-spanking new, more than decent racing game is released for a snip at £12.99, well, it rather takes the wind out of one’s sails. And that is exactly what the Wakefield-based Team 17 programmers have done by releasing F17 at a budget price in a fit of generosity not usually associated with Nortshire folk. Anyway, if it is that cheap, F17 must be crap, right? Wrong. What we have here is a perfectly reasonable game released at a perfectly reasonable price. Hurrah.

The whole thing zooms along at a cracking pace and, despite the lack of great detail, you'll soon find yourself gripped by the action. If you remember that F17 was designed specifically as a budget game, there's little to fault it. In fact, I'd say that it's the best budget title I've seen in some time. However, compared to other racing sims now available on budget, it does seem a trifle shallow. It's initially addictive but it lacks any real long term appeal.

Wiele już zostało wydanych wyścigów samochodowych na komputer i w zasadzie wydawałoby się, że nic nowego już się nie da zrobić. Patrząc na program F17 CHALLENGE dochodzę do wniosku, iż jest tak w rzeczy samej. Nie jest to bynajmniej uwaga bezpodstawna. Popatrzmy na drugą grę tego typu NIGEL MANSELL'S CHAMPIONSHIP. Można doszukać się podobieństw, czy wręcz posunąć się dalej i stwierdzić, że są takie same (kurcze, nawet fonty). Caly czas czekam na wyścigi inne, całkowicie nowe, no i fajne.
Amiga Joker
Was letzten Endes nicht klargeht, ist ironischerweise der Preis: Der Klassiker „Lotus II“ fährt sich schon wegen seines Splitscreens um Klassen besser und ist mittlerweile längst günstiger zu haben als die sparsamen F17-Parcours...

Kanske kan det vara något för alla bilfantaster att stilla hungern med tills nästa höjdarracer dyker upp. Själv sparar jag mina slantar.
