Home Forums Previous Months 02 – April 2017: Grand Prix Circuit Contemporary Reviews Reply To: Contemporary Reviews


Computer Gaming World March 1989 (Page 45): “Grand Prix Circuit is a good game.”.

Interestingly they (and the previous review!) complained about the keys used to stear the car. Cursor keys in the PC version and IJKL in the C64 version (“why keys that are placed so close together?”).

Could you imagine that today? People complaining about WASD being used for a shooter for example. But I have to say, when I played the game as a kid, I had my problems with that too and I remember using both hands on the cursor keys to play. Of course that made every difficulty level beyond 1 unplayable 🙂
