The Games Machine (UK)
The Electric Dream offering has hit the nail on the head, incorporating the all-important speed, quality graphics, a significant lack of multi-load and sufficient addictive qualities to keep you trying again and again to reach that distant goal. An excellent game.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The big difference apart from the obviously improved graphics, is in the mouse control. The bike is much more responsive to the mouse than the joystick, providing realistic, fast handling.

ST Action
For a long time, the ST has sadly lacked a decent racing game - but not any more! A lot of time and effort have gone into this conversion and it really shows. Graphics are smaller than the arcade version, but are crisper and better defined. All of the five tunes are very good too. Controlling the bike with the mouse struck me as a very odd idea but, if anything, it is more sensitive and makes play easier. A brilliant conversion and, above all, a very playable one. Move over, Outrun, the king of the roads is here!

The One
It's also very user-friendly, allowing mouse or joystick control, the facility to load and save high scores and even an option to change the scan rate of the game, giving two different sizes of graphics! Super Hang-On is just great, easily the best arcade conversion yet.

Super Hang-On just has the edge over Buggy Boy, and makes Outrun look completely pathetic. The feeling of speed and exhilaration it generates is incredible; combine that with superb playability, colourful backdrops and excellent sprites and you've got the best race game to date. Don't miss it.

ST/Amiga Format
Super Hang-On is a great conversion of the Sega classic and proves yet again that the gap between coin-up and 16-bit is narrowing all the time.

Power Play
Spielerisch ist Super Hang On aber wenig aufregend. Man braust halt in der Landschaft herum und weicht den Mitfahrern aus. Wer noch kein Rennspiel für seinen ST hat, kann hier zugreifen. Doch wer von Out Run & Co. schon die Nase voll hat, möge eine große Rechtskurve um dieses Spiel machen.
