Obviously, many of these achievements will be lost on the majority of players who - understandably - won't feel like filtering the experience through the prism of 1984 to appreciate just how ahead of its peers Pitstop II really was. For those who appreciate vintage software for more than just nostalgic giggles, however, this is am impressive slice of history.
If you're a Commodore 64 fan that used to love playing the Pitstop titles, this is a game you should definitely consider taking for a spin again. It's simplistic approach to racing, coupled with the interesting use of the pit stop scenario, makes for a fun and unique racing experience that you just couldn't find on many game consoles or computers during this time period. That being said, racing game fans who've become spoiled by the extremely realistic approach of modern day racers might find this title a little too dumbed-down and basic for their tastes. It's clear that this game will definitely appeal more to those who grew up playing racing games from this era of gaming. Pitstop II proves that even these classic computer racing titles can still be a lot of fun to play, even all these years later.
