Nigel Mansell's Grand Prix

Apart from its vaguely snigger-worthy name, this one has nothing to make it stand out from the crowd in my opinion.

The game attempts to go a bit further than is usual for this kind of thing - more than two gears for a start. There are different tracks to choose from and lots of dials and knobs to keep an eye on, and the car does behave pretty realistically.

Unfortunately all this detail seems to be at the expense of things like the graphics. The action takes place in the top half of the screen, with slightly suspect-looking vehicles hammering round the track, yours being visible at the bottom of the window. The overall effect looks a bit unpolished. Nigel did too little for me. Okay for a cheapie. but will you remember it in the morning?
