What they thought about it
"Overall though, apart from all the little niggles and the disk accessing that goes on between (yes, there are some fair old pauses), there's something absolutely brilliant about this simulation. Do you want to know what it is? It's depth. Somehow the game seems immense, and it stands alone on the point. It's quite hard to get into, and takes a while to grip you totally. But once it has, it doesn't let go." - Zero Magazine (1989)
