Title Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 Game Type Driving Players 1 or 2 or 2 via Serial Compatibility AGA patch available Submission Angus Manwaring Profiled Reviewer Review While there were bits of Lotus 1 that I thought were great, the undulating races into the sunset, and some of the rock music, but for the most part I found the tracks too fiddly. I'm not particuarly good at this reflex stuff mind you, so what do I know? Lotus 2, though is altogether more to my taste. The tracks get consistently tougher, but are learnable and fair, and with time even I can pull off some fairly nice moves against the opposition. The illusion of movement as with all of the Lotus games is very good, and racing through the checkpoints with less than a second to spare is highly satisfying. The presentation throughout is particuarly good, with some really crisp music, and pleasing loading screens. You soon realise that you are playing a quality product. I'm sure it's part of the game design, but I swear some of the other cars are camouflaged so that you don't see them until it's too late. The game also features various objects that you can use to jump over obstructions like water that would otherwise add crucial seconds to your time. You have the several options of control, including an automatic gearbox if you're a big girl's blouse. The two player option is fine, but not a patch on the serial link option which is identical to the single player game except that white Lotus that just blew you off the road is driven by your mate. In conclusion then, a polished and highly playable racing game that should appeal to pretty much anyone.
