Overall, Tai-Pan is something of a missed opportunity, with reasonable atmosphere but some rather weak gameplay. Mouse control is very unwieldy, and manoeuvering your ship can be extremely difficult. Shorebound menus can be rather clumsy, and do not always have 'cancel' options if you select them by mistake.
Tai-Pan is a fairly involved game, and there is a lot to see and do - but what lets this version down is playability, something which the Spectrum version has aplenty.

Bei Tai.-Pan haben die Programmierer einige schlimme Böcke geschossen. Die Benutzerführung ist scheußlich (insbesondere bei Maus-Steuerung), der Spielfluß langsam und zäh, viel zu viel hängt vom Zufall ab, auf Dauer mangelt es an Abwechslung, und die Musik dudelt langweilig vor sich hin. Die Grafik ist über weite Strecken dürftig, aber einige einzelne Bilder sind wiederum Spitzen-Klasse.
