Génération 4 (Dec, 1988)
Bien que l'animation du décor (celle des voitures est plus que correcte) soit un peu saccadée, ce soft réunit les avantages d'une très bonne simulation et d'un très bon jeu d'action, ce qui en fait le meilleur jeu de course que j'aie jamais vu!

You've got four tracks to practice and race upon. In a race, all the opponent cars are the same yellow Porsche shaped sprites and seem intent upon ramming you (and who can blame them since you're the only one to suffer from this). Still with a lot of car animation, including a nice rolling sequence with all your doors and boot opening etcetera and priced just under a fiver, you can't go far wrong.
ST/Amiga Format (Jan, 1989)
Racing games aren't the greatest innovation since Armadillo toupees, but they're always popular. Both (Turbo Cup & Lombard/RAC Rally) strive for realism but in the end it's the Rally Simulator which gets closest. The roadside bushes which look like dead brains woun't have you spellbound, but at least you're looking through the windscreen instead of the usual backside view of a Tonka toy. Unfortunately, you only have to teeter near the road edge to crash into a tree. This becomes painful when faced with a set of corners punctuated by so many crashes you soon wonder if it's your brain whizzing along the roadside.
My only reservations concern the lack of variety. The four tracks range in difficulty with slightly different scenery, but it was inevitable that one would look and play much like another. Still, I was playing this all day yesterday and most of today, and I quite fancy another bash when this review is done. So what are you waiting for? Burn some rubber and get down to your local games dealer this minute before they are all gone!

[Budget re-release] But this isn't one of those games where you can just keep your toe down and smile, you will have to watch out for those dangerous corners. There are some neat graphics and sound, combined with wickedly fast speed as you race around the track. It's all very playable and good value at a fiver.

Turbo Cup will probably be very popular with ardent fans of racing games but it didn't hold my interest for long. I'd advise looking at some other games in this genre before splashing out your hard earned cash.
