This would have been a five-star game had not Origin previously released both Wing Commander and Wing Commander II. Hyperspeed is a well-conceived space-combat and role-playing game, but its graphics lack the movielike quality of Origin's games.

Power Play
Das nenne ich dreist! Unter dem Deckmäntelchen eines neuen Namens wird hier einfach ein (zudem noch eher mäßiges) Uralt-Spiel zum zweiten Mal feilgeboten. Unterschiede zum ersten Spiel findet man bei "Hyperspeed" nicht - nur zwei zusätzliche Galaxien und einige neue Alien-Bildchen wurdem dem "Neuling" verpaßt. Das hätte man auch locker als eine Zusatzdiskette rausbringen können. Warum die Programmierer außerdem rund ein Jahr gebraucht haben, um den "Nachfolger" fertigzustellen, ist mir schleierhaft. Wer "Lightspeed" schon hat, kann sich "Hyperspeed" sparen - Neukäufer greifen zu besseren Action-Strategie-Mixes.

Computer Gaming World (CGW)
An expanded Lightspeed; its strategic aspects are often overshadowed by role-playing elements. Emphasizes trade and diplomacy more than combat.
