Grand Prix Circuit
Grand Prix Circuit is easy to sum up because its a racing car game, and racing car games are always easy to sum up. In this one there are eight tracks, right? So called real ones, like Monaco, Mexico and so on. You can opt for practice mode (just you on the track of your choice, no other traffic), single race mode (after having completed your qualifying lap for grid position purposes, you pick a course, choose the number of laps, and race against the computer controlled opposition) or championship circuit mode (which is the same as the single race mode except that you go through the whole season and all eight courses, and your points for winning are accumulated).
So its like a cut down version of MicroProse Grand Prix, you might suggest. Er, no, not quite. In fact not by about a squillion miles. Dont forget, this is budget fare. Were talking 1989 ega graphics. And 1989 animation. And sound, too for that matter, (pc speaker). Lets just say:
The game doesnt exactly bomb along at a cracking pace and doesnt win any awards for sonics, and have done with it. So its crap then? you might well be assuming now. And yes, in a way it is crap, but then it is only 13 quid. There again 13 quid isnt really a throwaway amount; unlike, for instance, two pounds. Lets put it like this, Grand Prix Circuit would be just about passable as, lets say, a five quid release. Its maybe be a good game for kids. But for 13 quid? Naaah.
