The Press Says

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The PC Engine was designed with games like Chase HQ in mind and this fact shines through in the quality of the conversion. All of the jolly tunes from the coin-op are here and the speed, colours, and quality of the animation are all remarkably similar to the coin-op original. For simple, arcade-style racing frills and spills this is as good a game as you are likely to get any-where on a home system.
Joystick (French)
L'impression de vitesse est exceptionnelle, l'animation fluide. On pourra cependant remarquer un manque de scrolling du paysage de fond. En effet, celui-ci ne bouge pas sur deux plans comme dans les arcades. Toutefois, la voiture répond bien aux commandes du stick, et l'ambiance de ce genre de poursuite y est parfaitement reproduite. Chase HQ est sur PC Engine, une réussite à deux poils de la version originale.
Génération 4
C'est l'une des meilleures courses de voitures disponibles sur micro. Certains le trouveront peut-être facile, mais d'autres penseront le contraire. Mais tout dépend de votre capacité à manier le joystick.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Gegnüber den Heimcomputerversionen hat CHASE H.Q. zwar im Schwierigkeitsgrad zugelegt, doch das tut dem Spiel ganz gut. Die Motivation ist hoch, die Grafik gut, die Spielbarkeit ausgezeichnet – CHASE H.Q. ist ein Hit!
The Games Machine (UK)
Immediately loses the appeal of the coin-op because Nancy's speech is in Japanese! In-game speech is missing, replaced with good effects but dreary music. Sprites are flat and blocky, backgrounds no better with pathetic colour graduation in the sky. However, it moves smoothly and quickly and gives a good illusion of movement. There are continue plays but even so its difficult to catch criminals in this version.
The Video Game Critic
For a game that looks so good the soundtrack is understated. Three continues are provided and you'll want to use them. Chase HQ is rather obscure but I love its brand of old-school racing action.
Defunct Games
While the game is undeniably fun, it's questionable whether or not it has lasting value. Die hard racing fans may be disappointed with only five chases, while casual players may quickly be frustrated with the high difficulty level.
Power Play
"Chase H.Q." hat mich schon als Spielautomat nicht sonderlich begeistert (obwohl ich leidenschaftlich gerne "Miami Vice" anschaue). Allein die schöne 3D-Grafik war für mich ausschlaggebend, ein paar Markstücke zu investieren. Trotz meiner ohnehin skeptischen Erwartungshaltung hat mich die PC-Engine-Umsetzung enttäuscht. Die 3D-Grafik ist zwar flott (sogar etwas zu schnell und damit unübersichtlich), aber ziemlich rucklig, und das Spielgefühl läßt arg zu wünschen übrig.
