Sega has taken their popular arcade racing game and converted it downward to the Master System. Almost all of the action is here as you have a wide variety of tracks to race on, four different transmissions to choose from, and a split screen to allow for two player head-to-head competition or you against the computer. An overview of the track shows your relative position and what turns are coming up.
Super Monaco GP, while constructed as a decent playing game, just doesn't explode off of the screen like similar 8-Bit efforts such as Out Run did in four meg. With some tuning this could have been a hit, what we get is a mediocre game that never gets out of first gear.
I like the two-player option in this game, giving you direct head-to-head competition. While the graphics aren't as impressive as similar games, the addition of pit stops and wide selection of track help it along. Not the best conversion, but better than average for the SMS.
Super Monaco tries to touch on a lot of different themes, with head-to-head racing, pit stops, track selections and more, but instead comes up a little rough around all of its multiple edges There is a lot to like, but it doesn't touch Out Run.
This is a poor excuse of a driving game. If the SMS is supposed to be superior to the NES. then this game certainly doesn't show it. The game is too straightforward and comes off looking like a poor NES title. Keep the car in the garage!
