Not exactly memorable, but fun. Amstrad CPC Neville (1847)
Too easy, jerky, technically shoddy - generally a poor conversion Amiga Martin Smith (63162)

All the extra speed will be needed if you haven't beaten the 959 - in a great animated sequence he waves to your girlfriend at the checkpoint, and she gets out to go for a ride with him! The race to get her back takes you through deserts, forests (with logs to bounce over), snowstorms, cities at night with oil on the road, and lots more besides. 16 levels make for one spectacular arcade game!

Excellent presentation and superb def title track, samples and effects from the Maniacs of Noise create a great atmosphere. It's not just a mere race game, it's a real package. Turbo is fast, colorful and the C64 sprites surprisingly well defined. To choose between this and Power Drift is like choosing between an Amiga and an ST. The Amiga's miles better. Ha ha.

All of the frills from the coin-op are here - including the progress map, work shops, opening sequence in which the blonde abandons the Ferrari and joins your rival in his Porsche, turbo mode, and some superb sound samples. Probably the best C64 coin-op conversion of the year.

Turbo Out Run rappresenta una tappa forzata per ogni Commodoriano che si rispetti. Tecnicamente parlando è un gioco eccelso, con grafica varia, definita e colorata, accompagnata da un eccezionale tappeto sonoro, che fanno di questo gioco uno spettacolo audiovisivo di rara bellezza. La perfetta manovrabilità della Ferrari, unita alla varietà di situazioni e all'ottimo bilanciamento della sfida, rendono questo prodotto uno spettacolo per chi lo gioca. In definitiva, un capolavoro entrato di diritto nell'Olimpo dei pesi massimi per Commodore 64. Da avere assolutamente.

In complete contrast to Turbo on the Amiga, the 64 version provides a fast fun game and conversion that will even please the sceptics.

Graphically Turbo Outrun on the ST is as colorful and detailed as its Amiga twin. The other road users are as big a pain as ever, but as always a jab on the turbo button sends you rocketing off into the distance. If you liked the original, Turbo Outrun is for you.

Okay, it's yet another drivey game. But it's addictive and it's got an extremely good learning curve. It's great fun to play and without doubt a vast improvement on the previous Outrun incarnation. If racey games are your particular bag of spanners, then there's absolutely no reason not to buy Turbo Outrun for your Amiga.

Another extremely playable US Gold coin-op conversion.

A good racing game - amongst many others - that Out Run fans will like.

Unfortunately, the scrolling lets it down a little bit but it's still a brill game. Not excellent but brill, and no one should be disappointed if one Mister Santa Claus leaves a copy under the tree on Christmas Day.

A brilliantly accurate conversion that suffers from a lack of vision.

Turbo Out liegt, dank der schönen Grafik und flotten Animation, etwa gleichauf. Der Sound ist absolute Spitzenklasse, und so machen die ersten Runden im roten Ferrari denn auch einen Heidenspaß. Auch die Steuerung ist OK, dennoch verabschiedet sich die Motivation nach einer gewissen Spieldauer: Zu schludrig haben die Programmierer gearbeitet, damit das Game noch beim großen Weihnachtsgeschäft mitmischen durfte.

Un Porting a metà. Peccato non aver sfruttato a fondo le doti della macchina, lasciando al giocatore la chiara sensazione del "si poteva fare di più". Dove è finita la grafica a bordo pista e di contorno dell'Arcade? A questa domanda non avremo mai risposta purtroppo. E cosa ne è stato del framerate da urlo? Se dovete scegliere, puntate diritti su Chase HQ. Se potete averli entrambe, vi farà passare comunque ore di divertimento, a patto di impegnarsi per impratichirsi ed impradronirsi del sistema di gioco

A disappointing sequel to the original rolling-road racing coin-op. Much better than the original OutRun, but hardly the best of the current driving games.

AmigaAmiga Format
A vast improvement on the original conversions. Still not a brilliant game because although there is a better impression of speed it is still lacking. You do seem to be flung around the corners rather erratically, too, and the collision detection is a bit iffy at times. All in all it is not a bad racing game but it is not outstanding either.

It is daggers out time I am afraid to say. The Amiga version of Turbo Out Run, potentially conversion of the year, has turned out to be nothing more than an over-hyped piece of average software.

Turbo Out Run är helt klart en förbättring av Out Run men frågan är om det någonsin kommer att komma upp i samma intresseklass som arkadspelen. Hur som helst är Turbo Out Run till 64:an det som Out Run egentligen borde ha varit...

Leider alles schon mal dagewesen. Ein Zwei-Spieler-Modus und verschiedene Renner hätten mehr Abwechslung gebracht. Leider nicht mal was für absolute Renn-Fans, auch nicht, um sich die knapp überdurchschnittlichen Musikstücke zu Gemüte zu führen. Neues muß her!

In the grand scheme of things, most people will regard Turbo OutRun was a brain fart, a game that got a port because it had to. I look at it (along with Data East's subpar OutRunners) and see lost potential. The OutRun series was always great in the arcades, and each subsequent port on the Genesis was worse than the one before it. The only consolation fans have is the first game, which seems to be the only time Sega got it right.

Kurz gesagt: Turbo Out Run ist ein spielerisch einfältiges Autorennen, das als Automat dank der tollen Hydraulik Spaß macht, als Computer-Programm allerdings eine klare Fehlzündung ist.

Einzig dem Grafiker gebührt Lob: Sowohl Hintergrund-Landschaft als auch Sprites sind toll gezeichnet. Zum Ausgleich ruckt die 3D-Grafik gewaltig und ist zudem nicht gerade schnell. Der Sound hat dagegen keine Höhen oder Tiefen und pendelt sich im Mittelmaß ein. Kurz gesagt: Turbo Out Run ist ein spielerisch einfältiges Autorennen, das als Automat dank der tollen Hydraulik Spaß macht, als Computer-Programm allerdings eine klare Fehlzündung ist.
