GamePro (US)
Hard Drivin's no lemon, but it's got its kinks. The steering controls are sluggish, and the 4-speed automatic transmission, which requires pressing both Option buttons to use, has too many moves for one thumb. But if you don't mind working while you drive, take Hard Drivin' for a test spin!
Power Play
Nach dem guten "Checkered Flag" gibt das Lynx erneut Gas. Diesmal hakt's allerdings im Getriebe: Spielerisch wurde das Computervorbild zwar kompromißlos adaptiert, doch bei der Geschwindigkeit (Strecke und Autos werden in ausgefüllter 3-D-Vektorgrafik dargestellt) muß man Abstriche machen.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Noch schlimmer als die Animation wiegt die miserable Steuerung, bei der man trotz des eingebauten Steuerkreuzes das Gefühl hat, eine schlecht installierte Maus zu bedienen. Schlickerfahrten und Crashs sind die Folge, das Einhalten des Zeitlimits ist folgerichtig nicht möglich. Schade drum: Hier wurde eine gute Chance vertan!
All Game Guide
Whatever Hard Drivin' is, it certainly isn't a realistic driving simulator. In real life, you don't collide with cars when you're a full car length away, and you don't bounce back a hundred feet or so when you crash into a car. Most of all, you never pass straight through another car. This game really isn't worth your time unless you're a diehard racing fan looking for a complete collection.
Versteht mich nicht falsch, auf den ersten Blick war ich wirklich begeistert und dachte schon daran, einen weiteren Tophit auf dem Lynx vor mir zu haben. Doch diese lieblose Konvertierung mit zahllosen dicken Schnitzern ist weit davon entfernt auf Atari's Handheld eine gute Figur zu machen. Der Rat kann daher nur lauten - Finger weg!
ST Format
The graphics are pretty, the idea's good, but it's all completely screwed up by the control system. Hard Drivin' is not a good game. Avoid like the plague.
Defunct Games
Hard Drivin' is an understatement. Impossible Drivin' is more like it. This game is so bad that I can't bring myself to say anything more about it! In fact, this may very well be the worst Racing Game EVER. This is the complete opposite of Gran Turismo 3.
