Zzap! (May, 1985)
Instant appeal as you belt round the track. Always possible to improve your time and score. Aging idea but still the best race game money can buy.
Zzap! (Nov, 1985)
Although it's THE official version of one of the most played arcade games it's now rather dated and there are some much better games out on the market.
Info (Mar, 1985)
A big hit in the arcades, the magic has not been translated well for the 64 with Pole Position. Chunky graphics and animation, added to unsophisticated sound effects and unconvincing joystick response, make this racing game seem like an amateur effort from the grandaddy of video gaming. Pole Position might have looked better if it weren't for the striking contrast to Pitstop II (right). If you want a really hot racing game, you won't find it here.
Commodore Force (Aug, 1993)
'Prepare to qualify'. Ah, who can forget those immortal words, uttered so seductively when you put 10 pee in the slot? Gone are her sultry tones, and all that remains is a characterless and aging drive-em-up.
