    Hi,

    I thought we’d collect a few reviews of the game from the time it was released. Maybe we can use that in the podcast!

    I’ll start: ZZAP! September 1989: Overall Score 62% “Rather disappointing”. This is about the Amiga version though.

    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 🙂

    This is super cool! This is very content for the podcast too 🙂
