Gut bei Omega Race findet wieder die übliche Schlacht zwischen Gut und Böse, d.h. dem Spieler und den Angreifern statt — im Weltraum, versteht sich. Selten aber hat man bei einem solchen Spiel weniger den Eindruck, die Einfachheit des immer gleichen Handlungsablaufes zum soundsovielten Male nachzuspielen, wie in diesem Fall.

Mine Storm for the Vectrex is the best Asteroids derivative on the market, and Space Fury is the closest thing you can get to Asteroids on the ColecoVision. However, if you want a game that was influenced by Asteroids, but is quite different in execution and overall design, you might want to try Omega Race.

The Video Game Critic
This Colecovision edition not only duplicates the fun gameplay of the arcade, but spices things up with color, customization options, and even a two-player simultaneous mode. The "fast bounce" option makes the walls more elastic, but also makes your ship harder to control. The "tunnel" and "astro gate" options make the vanilla playfield slightly more interesting, but these passages are really too narrow to make much of a major difference. The two-player mode would have been fun had it been cooperative, but instead you just bounce around shooting at each other, which is kind of lame. For the single player however, Omega Race is a worthy challenge, if somewhat forgettable.
