The Games Machine (UK) (Apr, 1989)
Detailed vehicles and backgrounds with colour borders makes for a lively looking game and its technical excellence combined with the wide range of playable sections makes this one of the best multi-event games for a long time.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (May, 1989)
Run the Gauntlet is a simple, but enjoyable and addictive game which has a very competitive element in two or three-player mode. The random selection of courses and craft is another bonus, making the game unpredictable and increasing its lasting appeal.
Your Sinclair (Apr, 1989)
Multi-event racing, boat driving and assault-course game from the TV show of the same name. Not particularly well implemented, but quite good fun despite it. Slap on the wrist for Imagine – it could have been a lot better.
Your Sinclair (Jan, 1991)
[Budget re-release] So to sum up, we're talking three averagely average sub-games – nothing special, although then again for a mere £2.99 you certainly are getting quite a lot of game for your moolah.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Jun, 1989)
Everything's very fast and the graphics are fine. It's tougher to win on the Speccy, so there's more lasting challenge, but you'll master it eventually. An enjoyable short-term game in the Super Sprint and BMX Simulator mould.
