Chase-race game that'll have you on the edge of your seat . . . assuming that you were sitting down in the first place.
Commodore User (Nov, 1988)
The graphics are well up to the standard you'd expect (the other cars on the roads, are particularly varied and detailed). The sounds are good too, though I have to confess that the racket your own siren makes from the second you sight your quarry until you have his hands handcuffed behind his back began to grate fairly shortly. Chase H.Q. has everything a good drivealong should have, and quite a bit more besides. Even without the challenge of the chase, the driving action is excellent, with the car actually lifting off the ground when it goes over bumps and handling well throughout. When you add the run-'em-off-the-road hot pursuit action, well, what more could you ask for. A hit, or I'll eat the Ed's quart of Branston pickle, jar and all.
All Game Guide (1998)
A game of Chase H.Q. is a good time. It combines good driving and strategic maneuvering with mindless crashing and nonlethal force. It is not the best game of 1988, but it is a good one.

Wheeeeeeee! I've finally found a race game that's better than OutRun. You don't believe me? Then check this out. Chase H.Q. runs more smoothly than the Sega classic, its graphics are more detailed, the sound is more lifelike and it's even got a game attached to all of that high speed driving!
