Fortunately, this is the sort of game you keep playing however far you've got into it. The levels are all pretty similar anyway, so the fun isn't derived from endurance, just from simple blasting, and so play remains enjoyable for the duration. What more is there to say? If you're in the market for a good ST shoot 'em up, motor on down to the software shop and check out Road Blasters.
The graphics are colourful and detailed: meaty explosions add to things nicely. The engine noises are suitably revved up to. The loading is the same painfully slow system as on Out Run but at least there are no delays during the action. A high quality conversion that will please fans of the coin-op, and many more besides.
This is not the definitive race-and-raze game we were all expecting but an acceptable offering for fans of the coin-op.
Power Play (May, 1989)
Endlich ist die ST. Version von Road Blasters erschienen. Sie macht zwar nicht so einen Mordsspaß wie das Automaten-Original, kann sich aber durchaus sehen lassen. 3D- Grafik und Steuerung kommen gut rüber, der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist aber etwas zu niedrig. Gute Spieler werden sich deshalb rasch langweilen.
ST/Amiga Format (May, 1989)
Probe aren't best known from their racing games. Outrun might have made it into the number one slot, but no-one really took it seriously. But Road Blasters looks set to change all that, especially since it's coming under US Gold's new £14.95 umbrella. Graphics aren't spectacular - another Probe problem - but there's an addictive gameplay there and that's got to be a good omen for the forthcoming Outrun Europe release.
