Un très bon jeu, tout à fait passionnant et ponctué de commentaires parlés.

It felt a bit strange playing squash and not ending up drenched in sweat and gasping for air. Still, the graphics are good and the game's addictive. I also found out that Jonah Barrington is mike shy - the voice synthesis sounds like he spent hours down the pub getting his courage up ...

Sports superstars endorsing computer games seems a trend that is likely to continue until all the superstars have been used up. Jonah Barrington's Squash is endorsed by the former world champion and the score is called out in his own voice which has been 'accurately reproduced taking full advantage of the unique Reprosound system'.

Very similar to the Spectrum version, so, again, OK, but not terrific fun.

Finer graphics so it's not quite so difficult to see what's going on, but it's still not hours of fun.

Squash isn't the most exciting sport to simulate in the first place, and this computer version isn't going to keep you glued to the joystick.
