Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'North & South'

Rating:5 User: Alessandro Grussu

Superb rendition of the 16-bit arcade with a bit of light strategy thrown in as well, North And South is a comedy look on the American Civil War, as seen through a French comic book, Les Tuniques Bleues.

All the features of the original have been retained in the Spectrum version, which boasts great and colorful graphics, catchy tunes and smooth arcade action - a bit easy really, unless you play it on the hardest difficulty level and/or choose a particular historical scenario (e.g. the Confederates in 1864).

Best played on the +3 (disk version).
