Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Out Run'

Rating:3 User: Jordy

This isn't all a bad game but its flaws are so painfully evident and visible. The speed of the game leaves a lot to be desired, it suffers when there is too much on the screen at once and this slows everything right down, even on 128k, the fact is there are even games on BASIC which run faster than this game. The speed also causes steering to be hazardous at times. But I think the main reason this port was a disappointment was its multiload, especially when it's done in a want/found setup, meaning you might end up waiting quite a bit to play on through, so I normally play the +3 version to eliminate that. Everything else is fine, especially the wonderful music, but it lags so badly at times which ruins the fun of it. It's a shame.
