Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

I just remembered Super Cycle as a terrible game. The collision detection is... well ... not there. The game disintegrates into a turn left turn right until you get bored. I struggled to off-load this title earlier this year. Which is a great pity. I tried the Atari ST version earlier this year, and...

Re: Your top-5 sports games

  1. Premier League (SU megatape 15)
  2. Nigel Mansell's Grand Prix
  3. Match Point
  4. Supersoccer
  5. Peter Shilton's Handball Maradonna

I really wanted to like Hardball, but I just don't get on with it. It's impossible to play.

Re: Poll:The Odin big four

Wanted Heartland since the Sinclair User cover-game (issue 53 - August 1986). Finally bought a copy off eBay around 2002, and enjoyed it. This game is in my top 4 games list.

Re: CodeMasters - their best efforts

Grand Prix Simulator It's Super Sprint for the cash-strapped! A pretty good effort at imitating a full price coin-op conversion although both games would be eclipsed by Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road a few years later. It would be this type of game - tiny cars racing on screen - that would...

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

The answer is always Renegade 3. I just wonder whether this game could have come across better had it been called Joe Blade 5, or Dinokink, or something. Rather than demolishing a superb franchise. So far my track record for the game has been: HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, OK. I'm almos...
