OK man, hope ya makes it. Above all, have yourself a righteous time.
Despite the roar of the bikes and the ZZ-Top style intro music, Harley Davidson isn't so heavy. It's really a light-hearted mixture of enjoyable sub-games linked by a road section which gets tedious with the long distances between towns. There are some nice touches though, like giving a girl a lift on the back of your bike and customising both your bike and your image – a pity then that these changes don't show up on the actual riding screens. Once you've tried all five events, however, there's little else to see apart from some disappointing single-screen party scenes.

The game kicks off well enough, with a ZZ Top sounding intro tune, but after only several hours' play did I reach Sturgis and got duly dubbed 'Ultimate Bike God'. Although not functionally better than the PC version, the Amiga graphics are more colourful and better-defined. Despite some improvements, Harley-Davidson: The Road to Sturgis still lacks long-term interest.
Amiga Joker
Die Steuerung macht in allen Modi (Maus/Stick/Tastatur) eine recht gute Figur, an die etwas umständliche Handhabung muß man sich allerding erst gewöhnen. Grafisch ist die „große Sause“ kaum berauschend, in etwa eine Sparausführung von „Test Drive“ (samt strafzettelverteilenden Polizisten). Der Sound macht hübsch brumm-brumm, die Hardrocknummer als Titelthema ist sogar richtig gelungen. Das Problem liegt ganz woanders: Trotz der diversen Features und Unterspielchen ist der Motorradausflug schlicht langweilig! Ich habe auf halber Strecke umgedreht, mir die Haare schneiden lassen und meine Harley eingemottet...
Power Play
Das Harley-Rennen ist definitiv kein Glanzpunkt des Rennspiel-Genres. Zwar wurden Sound und Grafik gegenüber dem schaurigen PC-Original aufgemotzt, aber der Spielfluß ist immer noch so flott wie das LKW-Überholen mit einem Trabant.

Slick as oil, with lots of neat touches to put you into Easy Rider mode. The actual game is uninspiring and repetitive. Born to be mild.
