C64 version reviewed Issue 12 - ACE Rating 654

If anything the gameplay is better on this version because the car is more manoeuvrable about the road. It doesn't just stick in one lane when going round corners if you don't turn, however it still doesn't drive naturally. The extra weapons are also more usable and can be carried over between stages if you haven't used them up.

The graphics are virtually vectors, with little filling in. This means the speed is kept up but there's not much in the way of colour. It's probably a bit tougher than the C64 version, but it's none the worse for that. Spectrum Out Run owners will be relieved to know this is a much better conversion than that was. Coin-op blasters should be satisfied.
