Review of 'Super Sprint'

Rating:4 User: Alessandro Grussu

Super Sprint - Converted from the Atari coin-op, Super Sprint has one or two players competing against other two CPU-controlled cars in a series of tracks viewed from above each one in a single screen. Tracks feature bends and twist, ramps, barriers etc. and become more and more complex the further you progress into the game, although you are able to start to play from any one of them. Collect golden wrenches in order to gain power-ups to make your car more competitive, such as faster top speed or tires to make the car stabler when following the curves. Sound is pretty minimal and graphics are essential, but inertia and acceleration are pretty well implemented. Of course you cannot play with a steering wheel like in the arcades, but other than that it's a competent and well-made conversion, best played with a human companion. 3.5/5.
