I love going fast, and Lamborghini Challenge has the speed most Game Boy titles dream of obtaining. Unfortunately, Game Boy's oldest flaw is here as well. The blurring is really bad. The cones, if that's what they are, are nearly impossible to see. However, it plays decently. My biggest complaint is the sound. It sounds like an air raid siren, and it gets all the dogs in the neighborhood howling. Still, one of the better racers.

Does racing across the country a Lamborghini Diablo against others racers all competing for prize money sound like fun? It is, especially when you've got the cops on your tail nearly the entire race! The game suffers from a slight blurring problem, but it's not nearly as noticeable as other Game Boy games. This is a fun game to take on a road trip. Hey, if Dad drives like Grandma, maybe this game could help.

Surprise! Surprise! I like this one. Dunno why! Maybe it's because it kept my attention for more than a minute. Seriously, this racing game plays just as good as any other, even on 16-Bit. It's a little bit on the easy side, but it is still a challenge. The graphics are what you would expect from a Game Boy, but are still good. I also like how you can win money and use that money to modify or upgrade your car. Pretty cool!

Hey, what do you know, I'm still playing these Game Boy games. Lamborghini Challenge is an excellent addition to this portable. It will keep you busy during travels or business trips trying to cruise through the tracks. The graphics are very good in the sense of the GB's capabilities. You may have to turn down the sound, it can get irritating. This game is quite impressive overall. Cool features.

Game Reviews

Titus has a history of developing racing games that goes back to early efforts like Crazy Cars for the PC. Now it's taking a run at the portable market by releasing Lamborghini American Challenge for the Game Boy. While the action and details aren't great in this crosscountry competition, the enormous variety of races (48!) will keep you trying for the winner's circle.

Drive You Crazy

Driving one of the hottest cars ever made, you start with lightweight races in such cities as Miami. Boston, and Memphis. Your goal is simple: Avoid other cars that can slow and damage your car, then intelligently mete out your winnings to buy the improvements that'll help you battle the advancing competition. The controls are smooth and efficient, so you should be able to make the necessary upgrades for the tough races later on.

The behind-the-car graphics don't break new territory; they give you the feel but not the flavor of where you're racing, which eventually gets monotonous. The accompanying audio is extremely repetitive, and the laborious whine of your Lamborghini will drive you nuts.

Wheelin' Around

If this one had cruise control, you'd probably turn it on and leave. For its sheer number of races, LAC may be worth the price of admission, but veteran racers may find that it's just middle-of-the-road racing action.

ProTips:

  • When the cop car gets in front of you, you can avoid a confrontation if you hold out in a side lane, then cut across to the far lane as he approaches.
  • You start with one Turbo Boost, which should be saved for when you're running second in a high-stakes race.
  • Don't bet so high that scare off the other drivers from putting money into the pool.
