Raze (Apr, 1991)
[Budget re-release] Disk accessing is a bit wild, so it could be well worth laying out a bit of cash on an extra disk drive (about £70). Every computer owner should have a copy of Rocket Ranger - at £9.99 it's a steal.
Another excellent job of conversion makes this very attractive on the PC. The graphics have come over well, although some sequences have been changed. Notably there is no conversation on the Zeppelin.
Obviously they could not emulate the graphics of the Amiga, but it's a pretty good attempt. All the action sequences are there and essentially the gameplay is the same. One annoying thing is that it was prone to crashes - very irritating in a long game which can't be saved.

Un PC n’avait pas encore grand chose à offrir en tant que machine de jeu en 1988 – et cette conversion n’en tire de toute façon pas parti. Oubliez le VGA, oubliez la Roland MT-32, oubliez à peu près tout ce qui pouvait faire le (maigre) intérêt du jeu: Rocket Ranger est assez joli pour un jeu en EGA, mais c’est à peu près tout ce qu’on peut mettre à son crédit. Mieux vaut jouer à autre chose.
