Gra niestety ma zasadniczo trzy słabe punkty: po pierwsze jest absolutnie bezsensowna, na przykład o ile ty rozbijasz się na wszystkich wyżej wymienionych przeszkodach, to pojazdom twoich przeciwników zupełnie to nie szkodzi. Po drugie: co prawda obsługuje kartę VGA w trybie 256 kolorów, ale rzeczywista akcja toczy się na obszarze 1/4 ekranu, co w dzisiejszych czasach może stanowić jedynie ciekawostkę (aczkolwiek pociesza posiadaczy wolniejszych komputerów). Do tego wszystkiego dochodzi jeszcze dość przeciętna muzyka. Wszystko to sprawia, iż Cisco Heat'a możemy polecić jedynie mało wymagającym Czytelnikom.

Cisco Heat will not win any graphics awards but does get you driving on the edge. The game is thus quite challenging if a little frustrating. If you like San Francisco and you like driving then you might just find this game interesting. Hurrah!

Chances are you'll like it much more than you first thought. It doesn't offer any clever programming techniques, nor a new game system or stunning graphics, but it’s solidly put together and worth a good few plays, even if it is a little easy. If you're interested, get someone else to shell out the cash for it. After all, ifs not really that good.

Cisco Heat doesn't take racing games places they've never been. It's not very good, really.

A fun driving game that's fine as far as it goes, with the hills and junctions giving it a bit of originality, but the control system is abominable, it's not even slightly close to the coin-op and it's far too short to provide a decent amount of enjoyment for £26.

Smashing into cars and lamp posts produces fairly realistic results (your car spinning in the air and so on) and the statistics screen for both of the cars is a nice touch, but none of this really breathes any fresh air into what is just another in the long line of dated-looking race games that only really work in the arcades (and even then only with the use of some kind of gimmick).

The Amiga racing world at the moment already makes the M25 look somewhat deserted, so new car games have to offer something special if they are to survive comparison with Lotus II - the reigning champion. Cisco Heat has little to offer except the similarity with its arcade parent; and while it retains the arcade's brevity it loses the coin-op's cornering challenge. Sure, blasting through down-town San Francisco is amusing in the short term, but short-term is all you get.

Cisco Heat has turned out to be an unimpressive racing games, with poorly animated sprites and abysmal sound effects that fail to capture the potentially exciting experiences. The car under your control tends to be over responsive and the whole graphical presentation is poorly implemented. As for the speed, admittedly, it's relatively fast, although the scrolling is a touch on the jerky side. Cisco Heat has a rather amateurish feel to it, and in no way competes with similar contemporary products. You are advised to ignore this conversion in order to avoid heart-rending disappointment.

Cisco Heat is alright as far as it goes. Trouble is it doesn't go very far.

Ja, die 3D-Grafik ist generell hübsch gezeichnet, jedoch arg ruckelig animiert. Auch die Titelmusik klingt ganz gut, nur während des Spiels fallen sowohl Musik als auch Effekte eher unterdurchschnittlich aus. Alles in allem versprüht Cisco Heat den Charme eines Kolbenfressers...

Spielautomaten auf einen Heimcomputer umzusetzen, war schon seit jeher eine schwere Aufgabe. Mit Cisco Heat haben die Programmierer zwar schnelle 3-D-Rennaction abgeliefert, vor Originalität und Spielwitz schäumt das Programm allerdings nicht über. Nach zwei-, dreimaligem Befahren der Strecke ist man es leid, den Joystick noch weiter zu quälen. Verschiedene Strecken (nicht nur das San-Francisco-Auf-und-Ab), mehrere Arten von Gegnern, vielleicht sogar ein paar Extras hätten das Spiel zwar weiter vom Original weggeführt, aber die technischen Unfeinheiten, wie das rucklige Scrolling und die mißratenen 3-D-Effekte etwas ausgebügelt.

So hübsch die Grafik gezeichnet, so annehmbar flott sie auch animiert wurde - dank der spielerischen Mängel ist man froh, wenn die Bildschirm-Hatz endlich zuende ist. Mangels Justiermöglichkeit läßt sich der Stick nämlich kaum sinnvoll einsetzen, mit der Tastatur wird die Steuerung arg ungenau. Da helfen auch der mittelprächtige Sound (Musik und FX) und die mangelnde Konkurrenz nichts mehr...

Five stages all look the same and play equally appallingly. You'd have more fun being fitted up by the West Midlands serious crime squad.

Grafiken är skrämmande dålig. Den utgörs av lite krafs som står vid sidan av vägen, dvs hus, människor, träd m.m. Ljudet, dvs en liten låt och diverse ljudeffekter, är otroligt enformiga. Låten är en kort sekvens, som spelar om och om igen, och ljudeffekterna består av sirener, vanliga tutor, dunsar när du har hoppat över ett gupp med bilen samt ett sladdande ljud vid växling. Desto bättre är att du kan stänga av både effekterna och låten. Är du lika kritisk som jag (det finns faktiskt väldigt kritiska recensenter på DMz), stänger du också av datorn.

Add appalling screen detection, no sense of perspective (turn a corner, and the view doesn't change at all), very poor sound effects, and you've got one of the worst games of 1991. Steer Clear.
