Superlative sollte man gerade bei der Beurteilung von Videospielen möglichst meiden. In diesem Fall aber gibt es für mich keine Diskussion: Ein Spitzenspiel, ja, der Renner unter den Renn- bzw. Fahrspielen, das ist Pole Position.

What then can be said? The game keeps score based on how far you go, so there's replay value in trying to beat your previous score. Even if the game didn't keep score, this game is good enough that it would be worth coming back to play occasionally on its merits alone. As an arcade port, this isn't the most creative game in the world, but a good game that's a port is easily better than a bad game that is overly creative. Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. If you have an Atari 2600 and you don't have this game, shame on you. Get it immediately. You don't know what you're missing.

Realistic sound effects include passing car engines and squealing tires. I like how the game keeps a running score at the top of the screen. This version of Pole Position is tougher than it looks. Try to reach 50,000 points and you'll see what I'm talking about.
