Dragon (Apr, 1992)
This would have been a five-star game had not Origin previously released both Wing Commander and Wing Commander II. Hyperspeed is a well-conceived space-combat and role-playing game, but its graphics lack the movielike quality of Origin's games.

Play Time (Apr, 1992)
Ist die Galaxis erforscht und ein geeigneter Planet gefunden, ist das Same erfolgreich gelöst. Bis zu dieser Lösung, was bei der Komplexität des Spieles einige Zeit in Anspruch nehmen wird, verwöhnen die Programmierer den Spieler mit AdLib-Sound und excellenten Polygon-Grafiken. Kein Spiel also für Typen, die nur rumballern wollen.

Power Play (Mar, 1992)
Das nenne ich dreist! Unter dem Deckmäntelchen eines neuen Namens wird hier einfach ein (zudem noch eher mäßiges) Uralt-Spiel zum zweiten Mal feilgeboten. Unterschiede zum ersten Spiel findet man bei "Hyperspeed" nicht - nur zwei zusätzliche Galaxien und einige neue Alien-Bildchen wurdem dem "Neuling" verpaßt. Das hätte man auch locker als eine Zusatzdiskette rausbringen können. Warum die Programmierer außerdem rund ein Jahr gebraucht haben, um den "Nachfolger" fertigzustellen, ist mir schleierhaft. Wer "Lightspeed" schon hat, kann sich "Hyperspeed" sparen - Neukäufer greifen zu besseren Action-Strategie-Mixes.

An expanded Lightspeed; its strategic aspects are often overshadowed by role-playing elements. Emphasizes trade and diplomacy more than combat.
 
With so many space-related games on the market, it's hard for players to decide which ones to add to their collections of software. Shoot-'em-up-style space arcade games and pure strategy games are abundant on the software shelves. Hyperspeed offers a refreshing change of pace to this genre, a kinder, gentler one that centers around exploration and communication, with combat playing a secondary role. Hyperspeed will reward players with smoothly animated graphics, excellent sound and a well-developed, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, storyline.
