Review of 'Elite'

Rating:4 User: Sard

Im giving the vanilla Firebird zx Elite only a 4 I'm afraid.

Its my favorite game of all time, and by rights I should (bearing the amount of time i played it back in the day) give it a 5 easy. However these days its clear that speccy Elite doesn't stand up well to other versions.

Less ships, fewer features, and just not the same FEEL of the BBC and (I dare say it) C64 versions. It did the job back in 1985 sure, but in my book it was a wasted chance and could have been a lot better.

Elite 3 Novosibirsk is FAR more like it though..one of the best 8 bit versions out there.. but then thats another review :)
