Review of 'Turbo Esprit'

Rating:5 User: p13z

Hunt down criminals and watch out for retaliation from the mafia 'hit cars', in your turbo esprit. You drive around your city of choice, complete with '3d' buildings, pedestrians and traffic. Wait for a call to come in from hq, giving the location on your map of a crime in progress, then catch and arrest the bad guys.
This game was ahead of its time, with elements of chase hq and arguably even grand theft auto, years before they were conceived. It gave the feeling of free roaming in a large city, yet still included great little details, like traffic lights, roadworks and even indicators on the car.
Turbo Esprit was a minor landmark game at the time it was released, and is still fun to play today.
