Another coin-op hit, this puts you in control of a Jaguar racing car, screaming around the tamed Le Mans circuit. Well received when it was first released, WEC Le Mans is still a remarkably addictive racer, and for three quid, is a lot better value than some of the full-priced racers about. Well worth a look.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Although only four rather drab colours are used and the sound effects are nothing much, what makes this special is the way the car moves and the smooth, fast scrolling. A thoroughly enjoyable racing game made even more so by the graphics.

Being unable to beat the game is no reason for me to bear it a grudge though. Indeed, this is one of the most elegant race games I've seen on any computer lately, and it's certainly the best I've played on the Amstrad.

WEC LE MANS ist ein echt guter Rennsimulator, sozusagen Grand- Prix-verdächtig. Sehr schön auch die Animation des Wagens bei Zusammenstoßen mit Konkurrenten oder anderen Hindernissen - die Kiste fliegt, sich mehrfach um die eigene Achse drehend, durch die Lüfte, um auf der Seite kurzzeitig liegenzubleiben. Bleibt nur zu sagen: Klasse gemacht, Imagine. Die Amstrad-Version ist schon spitze, was Grafik, Animation, Steuerung. Special Effects und Sound (von John Dunn) angeht.
