Nowadays, compilations are getting better and better as more and more recent games are being incorporated. This latest offering from Elite kicks off well. Into the Eagles Nest, is a graphically excellent Gauntlet clone. Then there's Lightforce a really neat vertically scrolling shoot-em-up with no colour clash! Then things deteriorate a bit. Aces is a not so good flight simulator over troubled areas.
International Karate has been on other compilations and it's not a brilliant combat game, and Shocking Rider - mugging on express pathways though a neat idea a is a bit odd. Finally, there's Batty. Previously unreleased and arguably the highlight of the tape... Arkanoid, take a step back, it's really good. So three great games, and three maybe OKs. It's a great compilation and one well worth spending your hard earned shreddies on.

Maintaining the reputation laid down by the first Elites First 6-Pak. A quality compilation.
