The inferior sonics are the only difference between the ST version and its Amiga cousin. All the playability is still here to be savoured - so buy it!
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Again, nothing new to report on the Atari front – identical to the Amiga.
ST Format
I much prefer looking down on a track to sitting behind some steering wheel, somersaulting towards some ubiquitous mountain range that never greets me - it's the difference between a 2D game and a 3D one. Badlands may not be trying to be real, but because of this it's far less constricted in game terms. You know how far through the race you are, what position you're in and exactly what you need to do to win. A few more tracks would be nice, and the difficulty level does whizz up a bit disproportionately when you get into it, but I'm a bit partial to Scalextric with knobs on and this'll do me fine.
Power Play
Super Sprint habe ich vor ein paar Jahren ausgesprochen gerne gespielt. Mit Badlands haben mir die Programmierer eine persönliche Freude gemacht: Das Spielprinzip ist fast unverändert, neue Pisten, mehr Rivalität dank Abschießoption und technische Güte machen das Programm zum einfachen Rennvergnügen. Die ST/Amiga-Versionen gleichem dem Spielautomaten-Vorbild nahezu bis aufs Pixel genau. Idealerweise spielt man Badlands zu zweit: Einen Freund mit einer Lenkrakete bekanntzumachen (He-he...) ist spaßiger, als einen Computerfahrer einzustampfen. Ein unkompliziertes, nettes Spiel.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Fazit: Obwohl Badlands eigentlich nur ein aufgemotztes Supersprint darstellt, dürftet Ihr mit diesem Actiongame dennoch einigen Spaß haben. Allzuviel Neues hat dieses Game allerdings nicht zu bieten.
