64'er (15 out of 15)

Elite ist ein Spiel, das bisher jeden, einschließlich der Tester, begeisterte. Elite ist eine abwechslungsreiche und sehr komplexe Mischung aus Raumschiff-Simulator, Handels- und nicht zuletzt Action-Spiel. Elite hat eine fantastisch schnelle und gute 3D-Grafik.

Brilliant on the Beeb, it's even better on the Commodore with music - the Blue Danube a la 2001 when docking.

The line graphics do appear to be rather slower than on the BBC when there are a large number of objects on screen - but who cares?

Although parts of the game seem very slow, I suppose this is acceptable because light year space travel must be immensely boring at times. All things considered the Elite package is unbeatable value and every home should have one.

Zzap! (97 out of 100)

I broke into a sweat as Elite loaded into the 64. Would it live up to expectations? Could I survive in the murderous space lanes? As I settled down in my executive class comfy swivel chair I knew I was about to experience the game of a lifetime.

The Commodore 64 version is a faithful copy, only differing in one or two minor areas.

Computer Entertainer and Video Game Update (3.5 out of 4)

It's difficult to imagine how anyone could become bored with ELITE. The program includes a huge number of destination planets, large quantities of friendly and enemy craft to encounter in space, plenty of opportunity for combat, and even more chances for cunning and clever approaches to amassing wealth and fame as a combat space pilot. ELITE offers a great blend of action and strategy with a bit of humor tossed in for good measure.

Power Play (87 out of 100)

Wer sich nicht in seinen Cobra-Raumer setzt, um Piraten und Thargoiden das FĂŒrchten zu lehren, hat eines der schönsten Spieleerlebnisse der letzten fĂŒnf Jahre verpaßt. Die Motivation, nur mal eben ein paar Credits zumachen, um sich einen besseren Laser zu kaufen, ist ungeheuer hoch.

Joker Verlag prÀsentiert: Sonderheft (80 out of 100)

Elite avancierte dank seines komplexen und hochmotivierenden Spielprinzips schon bei der Erstveröffentlichung vor vielen Jahren (C 64) zum Kultspiel, die grafisch konsequent ĂŒberarbeitete 16 Bit-Version konnte den Erfolg nochmals wiederholen. Das Programm ist zu Recht ein (bisher unerreichtes) Vorbild fĂŒr eine ganze Generation von Computer-Garnes und darf in keiner Software-Sammlung fehlen!

Commodore User (16 out of 20)

Elite is complex and challenging. Its strength is that it appeals on several different levels. It is a flight simulator of some merit, a strategy game requiring careful planning and a damn good shoot-em up all rolled in one.

There are no words to express how amazing this game is despite the hype. The Commodore version is a great improvement over the BBC version. Get it now!

The Video Game Critic (B)

Still, I truly enjoyed the first 20-30 hours I put into this game, and frankly that's more than enough for any gamer to feel they got their money's worth. A great game in its own right, I just can't help but feel how close to perfection they were able to come had they only included more content or an overall "plot".

Computer Gaming World (CGW) ( )

Interstellar trade and combat with two thousand planets in eight galaxies, Elite used wire frame graphics to depict space flight. Its popularity was largely a result of being one of the first space games with a "large" universe to explore.

Happy Computer N/A

Doch jetzt ist „Elite“ wieder in aller Munde, denn der Klassiker wurde fĂŒr Commodore 64 und Schneider CPC umgesetzt. Das Warten bat sich fĂŒr Besitzer dieser Computer wirklich gelohnt, denn „Elite“ gehört zum Besten, was je fĂŒr Spielefans veröffentlicht wurde - ein echtes Kultspiel.
