The One (Nov, 1988)
Put all aside though, Space Racer is a very addictive game. I hope it doesn't just get lost in the growing tide of 16-bit software.
Virtually the same as the Amiga. The road is, if anything, easier to follow but there's little to choose between them.
Atari ST User (Dec, 1988)
Peripheral niceties such as the eyes in the control panel which show objects ahead on the track, and inter-level screens of great detail and atmosphere are great. I only wish Loriciels had made it more competitive and paid more attention to the lasting appeal of the game.
Fazit: LORICIELS setzt mit SPACE RACER das fort, was mit Programmen wie Mach 3 und Captain Blood begonnen wurde. Technisch exzellente Programme, die meist nur an ihrem mageren Spielwitz oder an der nicht vorhandenen Komplexität kranken. Bei SPACE RACER ist alles vorhanden, was man von einem Spitzenspiel erwartet: Hervorragendes Titelbild mit exzellenter Digitalmusik, sehr gute Grafik und drei verschiedene Rennstrecken. Doch ist der Spielablauf sehr an Activision‘s GeeBee Air Rally angelehnt, das vor einiger Zeit für den Amiga erschien. Grafisch und spielerisch steht es diesem auch in nichts nach und kann sogar ein wenig mehr Atmosphäre aufweisen, Daher kann man SPACE RACER für Fans von Gee Bee Air RaIly, die keinen Amiga, dafür aber einen ST besitzen, durchaus empfehlen.
Very similar to the Amiga version, the only differences are poorer sound effects and a slightly jerkier, slower screen update. The affect of altitude on speed still makes the control system awkward and the unvarying gameplay tiresome, but then at least this version is nearer in line with its hosts capabilities.
