Outrun Europa is definitely the best of the Outrun series. It is extremely fast and the update is very smooth indeed, even with the large amount of side objects present on each level. The graphics are very detailed, even on the enemy vehicles. Although there are seven levels, every single one is extremely hard and you will need great skill to progress. US Gold are producing some really top quality stuff and Outrun Europa adds another notch to their success story. Outrun Europa should not be missed.
Grafiken är klart förbättrad jämfört med tidigare och scrollar snabbt och snyggt. Det första Outrun-spelet framkallade en outhärdlig trötthet i ögonen och man kunde knappt följa vad som hände på skärmen. Så icke här. Styrningen är väldigt känslig och kan vara svår att komma överens med till en början. Jag föredrar att använda mus i racerspel, och efter lite träning behärskade jag motorcykeln nästan till fullo. Ljudet fyller sin funktion utan att vara häpnadsväckande, och består naturligtvis mest av motorljud. Det finns många spel i samma stil som Outrun Europa, men jag tycker att detta spel är ett av de bättre och vill gärna rekommendera det.
Amiga Force
Europa is by far the best game in the Out Run series, and a worthy addition to anyone's software collection. With excellent presentation, admirable graphics and a speedy pace to fuel the fires of interest it's a particularly good game to kill a week or two with. It's not as good as Lotus, though...
Amiga Format
Europa comes in as quite expensive at £25, especially when you compare it to some of the budget drive-em-ups that are around at the moment. But for die-hard fans of the genre it just manages to hold its head up against the likes of the full-price Lotus Turbo II or Indy 500. If you completed the original, enjoyed its turbo-charged sequel and are just itching for plenty more of the same then you probably won't be disappointed.
Amiga Joker
Grafisch präsentiert sich Out Run Europa zwar nicht ganz so bunt wie seine Vorgänger, dafür um vieles detail- und abwechslungsreicher. Die 3D-Landschaften zoomen in einem Höllentempo heran, die (abschaltbaren) FX sind leidlich, die Musiken aufpeitschend – ja, hier kommt echtes Arcade-Feeling auf. Da die Sticksteuerung keinen Grund zur Klage gibt und die Nachladezeiten sich trotz der animierten Zwischensequenzen in erträglichen Grenzen halten, macht es auch (fast) nix, daß diesmal auf eine Schaltung komplett verzichtet wurde. Out Run Europa ist ein sicherer Tip für jeden Arcade-Racer!
Amiga Power
Despite the graphical good points OutRun Europa comes across as a game out of time - next to modern rivals, it seems thin, uncontrollable, cartoony and just a little childish.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Out Run Europa ist ein brauchbares Produkt, das allerdings mit Meisterwerken wie Vroom oder Lotus Turbo Challenge II lange nicht mithalten kann.
