I’ve never been an Amiga owner (and who knows if I’ll ever be) and my first encounter with Power Drive was on DOS and, since back then I loved Micro Machines but I didn’t have the video game, to me Power Drive was an alternative version of Micro Machine (the video game). I always loved this game mainly for its graphics, precise and colourful, even though I often struggled with the control method since it was hard to keep the car on track, but it was fun travelling all around the world with cars that weren’t designed to race (a Mini Minor???), tune them and purchase upgrades. As far as I know reading online reviews the game was not critically acclaimed with positive reviews but also a lot of very negative ones. Still, it was so fun…


Non sono mai stato un possessore di Amiga (e chissà se mai lo sarò), e il mio primo incontro con Power Drive fu su DOS e, visto che ai tempi amavo le Micro Machines ma non avevo il gioco,  per me Power Drive era a tutti gli effetti Micro Machines (il videogioco). Ho sempre amato molto questo gioco soprattutto la sua grafica precisa e colorata, anche se spesso mi risultava un po’ ostico il metodo di controllo, visto che non era così semplice far andare la macchina esattamente dove volevo, ma era bello girare per il mondo con auto che proprio da corsa non erano (una Mini???), modificarle e comprare potenziamenti. A quanto so, leggendo le recensioni online il gioco non fu mai accolto benissimo con recensioni positive ma molte (a parer mio troppe) molto negative. Eppure era così divertente…
