Zzap!
All the extra speed will be needed if you haven't beaten the 959 - in a great animated sequence he waves to your girlfriend at the checkpoint, and she gets out to go for a ride with him! The race to get her back takes you through deserts, forests (with logs to bounce over), snowstorms, cities at night with oil on the road, and lots more besides. 16 levels make for one spectacular arcade game!

The Games Machine (UK)
Excellent presentation and superb def title track, samples and effects from the Maniacs of Noise create a great atmosphere. It's not just a mere race game, it's a real package. Turbo is fast, colorful and the C64 sprites surprisingly well defined. To choose between this and Power Drift is like choosing between an Amiga and an ST. The Amiga's miles better. Ha ha.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
All of the frills from the coin-op are here - including the progress map, work shops, opening sequence in which the blonde abandons the Ferrari and joins your rival in his Porsche, turbo mode, and some superb sound samples. Probably the best C64 coin-op conversion of the year.

Retrogaming History
Turbo Out Run rappresenta una tappa forzata per ogni Commodoriano che si rispetti. Tecnicamente parlando è un gioco eccelso, con grafica varia, definita e colorata, accompagnata da un eccezionale tappeto sonoro, che fanno di questo gioco uno spettacolo audiovisivo di rara bellezza. La perfetta manovrabilità della Ferrari, unita alla varietà di situazioni e all'ottimo bilanciamento della sfida, rendono questo prodotto uno spettacolo per chi lo gioca. In definitiva, un capolavoro entrato di diritto nell'Olimpo dei pesi massimi per Commodore 64. Da avere assolutamente.

CU Amiga
In complete contrast to Turbo on the Amiga, the 64 version provides a fast fun game and conversion that will even please the sceptics.

Turbo Out Run är helt klart en förbättring av Out Run men frågan är om det någonsin kommer att komma upp i samma intresseklass som arkadspelen. Hur som helst är Turbo Out Run till 64:an det som Out Run egentligen borde ha varit...
