Living in the universe created by the Maxis team isn't all hard work, no matter how it may seem. There is more to life than building and maintaining, you know. There is war. There is sport. There is cheese, ham, pepperoni and pickle rolls. Most important of these is war, of course, and as humankind works its way to its own destruction, it only seems logical to assume that robots will at some stage play a large role in battle. A battle robot would need to have a heavy amount of intelligence if it is to succeed in its task, and as far as the Maxis team can see, this is where things start to break down.

Keine Änderungen, nur etwas 'behäbig'! Läuft nur mit 1 MB, Festplatte wird empfohlen.

Oh no, what is wrong? A game from Maxis that does not have the word ‘Sim’ in the title. Whatever can they be thinking of? SimCity, SimEarth, SimAnt, SimLife and SimFish and SimFarm in the pipeline… You do not have to be a lexical genius to realise that RoboSport does not fit into the neat linguistic progression. Success must have added the old corporate brain. Dear me, is nothing sacred? But some things never change, and you can rest assured that the latest offering from the masters of simulation still provides enough strategy and statistics to keep you up late into the night. And as with SimAnt, it tries to throw in a bit of humour to lighten the laborious load. For labour you will. Despite the seductive explosions on the game’s box, and the promise of a mixture of chess and guerrilla warfare (very attractive), it is all a bit of a trial to play.
Amiga Joker
Für Abwechslung sorgen –zig Einstellmöglichkeiten bei Schwierigkeitsgrad, Spieldauer und –regeln, Teamstärke etc. Richtig lustig wird es aber erst, wenn man sich nicht bloß mit der/den Rechner-Mannschaft(en), sondern mit den maximal drei von Menschenhand gesteuerten Teams herumbalgt, via (Null)-Modem kann man auch einen Fernkrieg führen. Leider wirkt die Steuerungüber Maus-Menüs und Tastatur etwas überladen und verlangt vor allem von Anfängern viel Einarbeitungsarbeit. Lohn der Mühe ist eine farbenprächtige Grafik, die trotz netter Details eher zweckmäßig wirkt und auch das Maxis-Typische Ruckelscrolling aufweist. Soundmäßig gibt es neben der Titelmusik nur sparsam verteilte, dafür umso lautstärkere FX. Bleibt die Frage nach der Motivation, und da fällt Robosport gegenüber den Simulations-Knüllern von Maxis deutlich ab – aber für ein paar zünftige Wochenend-Schlachten reicht es auf Fälle.
