STORY / GAMEPLAY
Lotus 2 is considered a technically impressive game of its genre. As in all Lotus games of the series, Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 is based around the renowned British car manufacturer, Lotus. As an improvement over its predecessor, its single player mode plays in full screen and the opponent cars appear in a variety of colors (the opponent cars of the first game are all white!) Your main goal is to drive your Lotus Elan (or Esprit) like hell and win the race within the time limit. The race tracks vary from highways to gravel roads and your opponents are quite skilled, so driving will become tougher as you proceed. Lotus 2 is an intense game, recommended for all racing fans.
GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Atari ST version features fast action, while the backgrounds are nicely detailed. There are a few details missing compared to the Amiga version, mainly at the backgrounds (like sky coloring), but the overall visuals are good with up to 20 colors on-screen. Sound-wise, the in-game engine sound is quite annoying after some minutes while the intro music is good.
