Done! It's a standard text file (the 'REV' is review, what I saved it as on my Miggy so I knew what it was), and the version that appeared in the mag. It's shorter and less cutting in places than my original but they wouldn't let me get away with some of the stuff I wrote...

You should get the idea, anyway.

Hehe...

There was a review of the Demo in the Polish edition of TA(22). Also not very flattering. Have you tried playing the game in WinUAE?

That was a very well-written review!

The review is more fun than the game!

Thanks for the positive comments everyone, good to know you appreciate my work I must admit it can be a lot of fun reviewing games of this standard, had to get it all off my chest after blowing 20 squid on it after all.

@ppill: Haven't tried it in WinUAE, I'm curious to know how it runs now though, so I might give it a whirl tonight. I'll report back my findings...

@ppill:

I tried the game in WinUAE (without the new patch), it runs at over 50 fps with all the detail on etc, compared to 4-5 fps on my 1200. Though the game is still as comically useless as ever.

Will try and get hold of the patch soon and see what difference it makes...

Too bad... I wonder if we get a chance to buy a decent new boxed game for the miggy any time soon

@AndreasM, we have now all read Grahams review of your game. Have you ever made any response to the review? Do you feel that it was objective and fair? Have your patches addressed any of the concerns that Graham raised?

Not looking to start a flame war, just want a balanced view on things.

That wasnīt a good answer at all to DDNIīs questions. What do you mean by not reading the review? Is the game as bad as itīs reviewed or do you think otherwise? What do YOU AndreasM personally think of the game (quality, gameplay etc.)?

EAB:ers, post your thoughts about the game please , i would like to know any opinions.

DDNI ask me for response the review. but i never read the review. i dont have here the total amiga 25 and i hear today the first time that TA release a review from Desert Racing.

I dont like racing game. i play DR a long time ago. i play DR inj the betatime and dont have any problems with the gameplay.

the gfx are voxel. not everybody like voxel. example i dont like voxelgfx.

but example. we become emails that the game crashed. but not one email that anyone have a problem with the gameplay. when nobody say it us, why we change anything?
