BBC MicroComputer Gamer (Feb, 1987)
[Tape version] There is also a tape version of the game of the for the Electron and BBC series that sells for £12.95. This is a cut down version of the disk game with less equipment available, only five different kinds of enemy, fewer options and less atmosphere (e.g. no descriptions of planets or military lasers). Whilst the BBC tape game is playable, it does give a real excuse for buying a disk drive (they're pretty cheap nowadays) along with the disk version of the game. Elite is an excellent game. One of the few that can really be called a 'classic' and probably the only 'classic' that is still playable - especially two years after release. The slightly lower price makes this very good value for money and it is worth getting just for the extra versions of the game.

Elite's graphics really are stunning. the opening title features a picture of your craft. which revolves perfectly in full 3D. But fitting all this into the Beeb's limited memory means that sound effects are rare.
