Your Amiga (Jun, 1988)
There is nothing sophisticated about GeeBee Air Rally whatsoever but the game is enormous fun to play. The ability to overtake a plane by flying under or over him as well as around him adds literally another dimension to what is basically, a 3-D Pole Position. And judging from the popularity of that game, that can't be a bad thing can it?
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Jan, 1988)
Gerade auch die hohe Geschwindigkeit macht das Programm zu einer ansprechenden Herausforderung. Ich persönlich lasse für GEEBEE AIR RALLY jedes Autorennspiel im Mülleimer verschwinden. Schließlich auch die zwar spärlich, aber gut eingesetzten Sounds machen das Spiel so ungemein realistisch. Also, an alle verkappten Bruchpiloten und Rennspielliebhaber: Legt Euch dieses Spiel unbedingt zu! Es wird mit Sicherheit keiner bereuen, denn es macht wirklich eine ganze Menge Spaß!
Commodore User (Feb, 1988)
I think this game would appeal to a wide range of Amiga owners. The graphics aren't the best on the Amiga, nor is the sound but the addictiveness and enjoyment that comes out of this game puts it in my Amiga top ten.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (May, 1988)
Excellent graphics are the main attraction here. Each plane is clearly visible, and it's very satisfying to overtake below or above. Sound effects do their stuff, and there's some pleasantly jazzy intro music.
The Games Machine (UK) (May, 1988)
However, no matter how professional the whole package looks, the game still fails to grab any real attention due to its repetitive objectives.
Info (Jan, 1988)
Last-generation effects (like the featureless scrolling ground stripes) plus a limited choice of action (2-speed throttle and constrained range of motion) make this feel more like a children's' tethered plane-ride at an amusement park than the "joystick-gripping, pylon-shaving" experience promised on the box.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Apr, 1988)
So to sum up. Gee Bee Air Rally has some great graphics, nice touches of humour great music and sound. One could only want for a little more playability. However, an enjoyable game.
Amiga Computing (Jun, 1988)
GB falls down because it is a conversion. On the 64, the programmer could probably only get so much into the computer's memory. With 512k of Amiga to play with, however, the game should have been considerably better than this. The idea is there for a good game, the packaging and instructions are excellent, but at £24.95, GB is overpriced and under-developed.
