Peripheral niceties such as the eyes in the control panel which show objects ahead on the track, and inter-level screens of great detail and atmosphere are great. I only wish Loriciels had made it more competitive and paid more attention to the lasting appeal of the game.
Hmmm! Looks suspiciously like the ST version this. All the programmers have done is use the Amiga's power to generate nicer backdrops and intro screens. Where's the extra sprite shading? The smoother hills? The improved sound? Left out, that's where. At the end of the first three tracks of Championship mode, the screen informs you that this was just a practice and you now have to race for your life, only to return you to level one with no apparent changes. Three levels for 20 quid? That's just not on. If you really want this type of game, then wait for it to appear on the bargain shelves.

Leider erreicht dieser Defender-Verschnitt bei weitem nicht die Klasse seines Vorbilds. Die drei grafisch unterschiedlichen Planeten samt Lebewesen sind zwar optisch ganz nett anzusehen - spielerisch bietet Space Ranger nur magere Durchschnittskost. Der gerühmte Soundchip Amiga muß sich ziemlich vernachlässigt vorkommen. Außer ein paar Bumm-Bumm-Geräuschen gibt er nichts von sich. Wer unbedingt ein Spiel dieser Art für seinen Amiga haben will, der kommt an Space Ranger momentan nicht vorbei.
