[Budget re-release] The game is controlled using the joystick, you push in the direction you want to go and continue to press to accelerate and pull in the opposite direction you want to go and continue to press to accelerate and pull in the opposite direction to decelerate though if you slow down completely you go through a 180° turn. This is a very hard way of controlling it almost to the extent of being unplayable to start with, but after a while you get used to it and the game holds the fascination of the inability to complete. If you've got three quid, buy it, you won't regret it.

Graphik und Sound gut bis ausgezeichnet, Spielidee und -wert schlecht: So muß der Kommentar über das Programm THE LAST V8 in der neuen MAD GAMES-Serie von MASTERTRONIC ausfallen.
Der einzige Haken an „The Last V8“ ist die Schwierigkeit. Die abzufahrenden Strecken sind sehr kurvenreich und eng, die Zeitlimits extrem knapp gewählt und die Joysticksteuerung stark gewöhnungsbedürftig. Zusammengefaßt kann man das Spiel als fast unmöglich bezeichnen – uns ist es jedenfalls nicht gelungen, die erste Basis zu erreichen. Aber gerade dieser Punkt dürfte „The Last V8“ für diejenigen interessant machen, die eine echte Herausforderung suchen.
