Hmmm, seen this somewhere before methinks. Ah yes, Crazy Cars III (AF38 93%), that was it and here it returns for another crack on the charts, only now with an official Lamborghini licence and a new name (but not a new price).
Italian cars (Lamborghini Countach, if my memory of Top Triumphs serves me correctly) racing the freeways of America, gambling and some evil looking characters are the fine ingredients in this er, crazy race game.
There are a whole host of tracks to race, some with the added bonus of patrolling coppers and with variable weather conditions and tough opponents to overcome, it is a real challenge.
Spare parts are available from a handily placed shop (it is on screen), though you need to buy them which you get from winning races. Or if you prefer, you can bet against your opponents and take the pot if you finish ahead of them.
There is a nice feel to this, particularly using the CD32 joypad - prod ed Rich was soundly slaughtered. Oh, I forgot to mention, this version has a two-player option (unlike Crazy Cars III) using a split screen mode which adds to the fun.
Lamborghini American Challenge is better than its pal, Crazy Cars III but there are many good racing games available at half the price. At £26 this one is for racing game addicts only.
