Gerade auch die hohe Geschwindigkeit macht das Programm zu einer ansprechenden Herausforderung. Ich persönlich lasse für GEEBEE AIR RALLY jedes Autorennspiel im Mülleimer verschwinden. Schließlich auch die zwar spärlich, aber gut eingesetzten Sounds machen das Spiel so ungemein realistisch. Also, an alle verkappten Bruchpiloten und Rennspielliebhaber: Legt Euch dieses Spiel unbedingt zu! Es wird mit Sicherheit keiner bereuen, denn es macht wirklich eine ganze Menge Spaß!

A great voice booms across the desolate plain. "Do not worry, Old Man. I have heard your prayers and they have been answered." No, it's not the voice of our publisher known to all as 'God', it is the voice of Activision, the fabbo software house that has seen the light and sensibly decided to convert GB Air Rally from the Amiga, to the Spectrum. Surprisingly it's made a very good conversion.
Excellent graphics are the main attraction here. Each plane is clearly visible, and it's very satisfying to overtake below or above. Sound effects do their stuff, and there's some pleasantly jazzy intro music.

It's the mid 1930s and all those magnificent men in their flying machines are flocking to Buckeye, Ohio to compete in the Cartwright Cup Classic. Donning flying jacket and goggles, the player steps into his GeeBee 250mph speed plane and the race begins.

However, no matter how professional the whole package looks, the game still fails to grab any real attention due to its repetitive objectives.

Playable and exciting, Gee Bee Air Rally is worth considering - although like other versions it might get repetitive. The game regularly accesses the disk so the planned cassette version might not be so playable.
So to sum up. Gee Bee Air Rally has some great graphics, nice touches of humour great music and sound. One could only want for a little more playability. However, an enjoyable game.

A fast and appealing 3D race simulation marred by very limited lastability.

It is a pity that playability is weak. The first race is almost impossible to die on and the next two are only slightly harder. The balloon-popping special event is more difficult, but can soon be mastered if you do not attempt to get every bonus point. The next load offers more unchallenging races and then a slalom bonus section - which is very difficult.

This is perhaps the only time you'll ever meet a cross between Biggles and Pole Position! A racing game in the skies. A nice concept, but what a shame about the game. If you really need the thrill of the chase, even that old chestnut Chequered Flag has to have the edge, for Air Rally is little different, but for a few additional "diversions".
