Mean Streets is a comprehensive detective adventure which will keep you burning the midnight oil for a long time to come. It incorporates more than one type of gameplay, so you don't get bored and encourages you to keep on playing in an effort to reach the end.
The only slight downer is the 3D scenery graphics, which are a little jerky, and not very detailed. Aside from that, Mean Streets is really well produced, and well worth buying if you're after an unusual arcade adventure.
Mean Streets will appeal to most people. The graphics and sound are excellent and it's very easy to get into, but it also keeps you playing by revealing clues at just the right moments and demanding some modicum of intelligence to complete. The driving around and the digitised pictures are reminiscent of Resolution 101, but this goes several steps further. If you liked that, then you should enjoy this well programmed cocktail of flight simulator, adventure game and shoot-em-up.
Overall, however, Mean Streets has a very competent feel to it. Graphics for each section have been well designed (especially the interviewees) and Access claim that the sound represents a technical breakthrough because the program outputs high quality digitized effects without adding extra hardware. The only real criticism I have is the considerable disk-access required (2 disks on the ST) which becomes wearing after a while. Perseverance, however, will reap its own rewards.
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.
