Spitting Image ist ein Heidenspaß - wenn man frechen Humor und bissige Seitenhiebe mag. Anhänger der Prominenten dürften hingegen schnell zum Ausschalter greifen. Das Spiel legt schonungslos alle Fehler der Personen offen, ohne den guten Geschmack völlig zu verletzen. Spielerisch ist Spitting Image in Ordnung. ohne die Klasse von “Punch Out“ auf dem Nintendo zu besitzen. Die Seitenansicht Iäßt keine trickreichen Kampftechniken zu. In höheren Level braucht man ein gutes Auge, um seinen Kontrahenten auf die Bretter zu schicken. Fazit: Wer schon immer den Papst gegen Khomeini boxen sehen wollte, kommt an Spitting Image nicht vorbei.

I'm a great fan of the series and this computerised version of Spitting Image is hilarious. The graphics are spot on. However, I too found the play slightly lacking in depth, and once you've had a good laugh at the characters there's not much to keep you coming back for more.

The game is generally well thought out and designed and has proved to be quite a lot of fun on other systems, but unfortunately on the Spectrum it has two rather glaring faults. The first is that once you've had fun discovering all the rude and bizarre bits you're left with a rather ordinary and not particularly hard beat 'em up. The other - far more serious problem - is with the loading. First you must load side one of the tape, then flip it over to take the characters themselves from the other side which takes ages. Then each time you lose and want another go you have to reload all six characters from side two again! Yaaghh! At this rate you'll spend 40 minutes loading out of every hour! Since both copies we got acted in exactly the same way, it doesn't seem to be a fault with the tape but a design problem. How silly.

The game of the rubberised satire show turns out to be an incredibly awful beat 'em up with you adopting the persona of a world leader and then mercilessly thrashing all the others into oblivion. Graphics, sound and gameplay are duff on all counts. What can I say except, 'Don't buy this!'.
