Three years of 3D racing games have attempted to better Super Hang-On, but for pure Outrun-style arcade race action, there's still nothing to top it. The coin-op technology in the original arcade machine was fairly simple by today's standards, which has worked in the game's advantage. Thanks to some excellent programming, the Amiga version is almost as fast and smooth as the original, and possibly even more playable!
It's a simple race along a winding road, which is split into sections by checkpoints. Fail to make the next checkpoint before the clock runs down, and you're out of the race. You get the choice of four tracks, each increasing in length and difficulty. Boredom from lack of variety is not a problem, as the stages take you through deserts, pastures, saltlakes and many other colourful locations. There's also a few night stages, so stock up on the carrots. The graphics are some of the fastest you'll see in a 3D game, and the gameplay will have race fans glued to their sweaty sticks for some heavy sessions. It's no one-week-wonder either; we're still playing it with just as much enthusiasm as the day it was released. Get a copy now.
