Le Geek (2012)
Not only is Enduro the best racing game for the system, it’s also one of Activision’s best and a must have.
Woodgrain Wonderland (Jan 19, 2017)
Enduro is not only the best racing game for the Atari 2600 but also one of Activision’s finest contributions to the Atari 2600 library and one of the best games for the system, period.
TeleMatch (Sep, 1983)
In den USA befindet sich Enduro auf Platz 1 der Videospiele-Hitparade. Das ist zwar noch lange kein Grund mit Vorurteilen ans Testen zu gehen, aber es fördert die Neugier. Um es gleich vorweg zu sagen: Seit lÀngerem hat mich kein Videospiel derartig fasziniert wie Enduro. Die Grafik ist zwar einfach, aber sie stimmt vom Anfang bis zum Ende und reicht hinsichtlich der spielbezogenen RealitÀt zweifellos an das ebenfalls herausragende Turbo (CBS-Colecovision) heran, und das, ohne mit zusÀtzlichen Speicherwerten aufwarten zu können.
Tilt (Sep, 1983)
Bref, un succĂšs et peut-ĂȘtre le meilleur jeu de notre sĂ©lection : Atari ferait bien de se dĂ©pĂȘcher de sortir son Pole Position version 2600 s'il ne veut pas se heurter Ă  un marchĂ© qui commence Ă  devenir presque aussi encombrĂ© qu'une piste de formule 1.
Besides its premise and challenging gameplay, the other quality that sets Enduro apart are its graphics. The game features a variety of realistic locations and environments -- including day, night, snow and fog. But these environments aren't just cosmetic; they change the way you play the game. In the snow, your car moves more sluggishly, and in the fog, you have to slow down. The transitions between stages are also noteworthy. For example, before you enter the snow, the mountains in the background turn white, and you even get to see a sunset before it gets dark. In the end, it's these little details that make Enduro a classic.
The Atari Times (Feb 19, 2004)
The only drawback to this excellent game is the fact that it does take a lot of time to play and there's no way to save (naturally) or skip past the lower levels. Still, this fairly-common cartridge is a joy and should be appreciated by anyone wanting a good racing game for the 2600.
Atari HQ (2000)
Enduro is the only racing game you need for your Atari 2600. It doesn't just merely surpass its competition, it buries them. Race right on out and get this one now.
Electronic Games (Jun, 1983)
Although I wouldn't go so far as to trade in my car for Enduro, I will say that it is the best VCS-compatible driving game I've seen yet — bar none.
The Video Game Critic (Feb 13, 2019)
This game can be time-consuming to play, but hey - they call it Enduro for a reason. This is an innovative, likeable racer that delivers a surprising amount of excitement.
Enduro may seem similar to PolePosition, but it's endurance model will quickly separate it. Despite having slightly less attractive graphics, Enduro plays well and delivers a good racer. It's difficulty increases and the race never ends... it just gets harder!
VideoGame (Mar, 1991)
VocĂȘ deve pilotar um potente monoposto em um enduro de 5 dias. Habilidade e resistĂȘncia sĂŁo indispensĂĄveis, pois vocĂȘ sempre largarĂĄ atrasado e deverĂĄ ultrapassar um nĂșmero mĂ­nimo de carros para prosseguir no dia seguinte. E, Ă© claro, a emoção vai crescendo dia-a-dia, pois o nĂșmero de carros a ultrapassar em cada um deles sempre vai aumentando.
neXGam (Jun 27, 2013)
Kurzum wieder ein tolles Spiel das Activision damals abgeliefert hat. Ein schnell erlernter Mix aus Rennspiel und Geschicklichkeitstest, den man gern immer wieder einlegt um etwas an seinem Highscore zu feilen. Technisch solide punktet das Spiel durch den hohen Widerspielwert. Ich denke wir sehen uns im Highscoreforum ,,,)
What then is the conclusion? This game might last long enough to become boring if you're really good at it, but otherwise, it is just a longer game, a nice sight on a system where most games can be played and lost in less than three minutes if you're bad at them. For that reason, if you are a fan of Atari 2600 racing games, I recommend you try to find this game and buy it if you can find it inexpensively.
