***** by Weekender. Comment: "This is the first arcade game that really got to me big time. It's was (is) so fast and frantic it's really hypnotising. When you want to progress in the game you should be so focussed and persisent, because it's has a steep learning curve. But once you've got the hang of it (keep moving in cicular motion), it's THE most intensly and rewarding adranaline game ever !!" 2003-01-07 06:22:50Z

***** by nwhutt. Comment: "This game has to be my all time favourite game ever, when it came out it was groundbreaking this was the first game to feature a motorised moving seat and had mind blowing graphics and sound. Back in the day I used to play this at the Palace of fun on Brighton Pier, they had 2 machines right at the front of the arcade and people just used to crowd around both machines and watch in amazement. The game still looks good today, the deluxe full motion cab looks awesome and still has better motion than most modern games I've played today. It's a damned shame there are not more of them around as finding one to play in an arcade now is near impossible and if you do chances are it's unplayable so I had no choice but to find and buy my own deluxe sitdown machine just so I could still play it in a proper cab. Playing this game on an emulator just doesn't cut it. I hold the current world record of for this game of 35774740 on the Twin Galaxies score board and it's a game I will never sell from my collection." 2006-02-25 16:45:33Z
