The Press Says

Mean Streets plays its part in pointing the way forward for computer games of the future. It is not perfect, it is rather slow and parts of the game are a little repetitive. However, software houses are having to come to terms with the phenomenon of 'Interactive Movies'. It is quite a jump from the standard fare, so it is understandable that Access, like the rest, are finding their feet by trying new techniques, introducing the human element and preparing for the coming of CDTV. As such, Mean Streets is an enjoyable game which, unlike other games that relay solely on presentation, offers extended gameplay.
Amiga Joker
Man ahnt es schon: Die spielerischen Möglichkeiten sind sehr begrenzt, im Grunde läuft alles auf das Sammeln (und Notieren!) von Infos hinaus. Leider macht auch die Präsentation keinen allzu guten Eindruck, der Sound ist trotz gelegentlicher Sprachausgabe spärlich, und die Grafik wirkt an vielen Stellen etwas dilettantisch. Mean Streets ist zwar relativ umfangreich, es gibt viel zu sehen und zu lesen — aber halt nur wenig zu tun!

Power Play
Man nehme einen eiskalt servierten Krimi im Stile Raymond Chandlers, packe futuristischen Schnick-Schnack dazu, addiere eine Prise Tastaturverwirrspiel - und schon hat man "Mean Streets". Im Gegensatz zur MS-DOS-Version wurden die Atari ST- und Amiga-Versionen grafisch aufgebessert. Am Spiel selbst wurde erfreulicherweise kaum etwas verändert.
