it was one of my favorite car games on st. But, gosh it was very difficult to complete. I spent so many hours on it in order to finish it.... never managed.

I remember playing Chase HQ so much when I was little back in 1989. I was six at that time and I did very good at driving games like this. Since I got the chance to play this game again on the Atari ST emulation, it brought me back so many memories. I remembered the different things the guy says at the beginning of the level. They were, "Let's go, Mr. Driver!" "Heya boy!" and "Hold on, man!" Those were the three things I remembered most about the game. The voices were done very well for the game too. If you like driving games, this is the best one on the Atari ST. I also heard that there's a sequal to this game called "Chase HQ II: Special Criminal Investigation. I've never played the sequal but I will someday and try it out. Chase HQ can be found on Automation compact disk 196, Flame of Finland (FOF) compact disk 14, Fuzion compact disk 12 and Medway Boys compact disk 57.

Speccy version? Lol, I'll try that then. The ST version wasn't that good. Played it once or twice but I wasn't convinced that this game is worth playing. Graphics look acceptable for ST standards btw., although game itself is a little bit laggy.

Like so many others I was sorely dissapointed at the conversion of this game from the arcades. The frame rate was poor, the sound wasn't as good. To be fair the hardware found at home perhaps wasn't up to the job. I would only play this game for nostalgic reasons because otherwise it just reminds me of what could have been. (sad but true the good ol' speccy version seemed to play faster!)

I played this game at the arcade halls, I loved it. racing and banging criminal cars;) yea.. spend a lot of coins there. Finaly when I got it on my Atari it was a bit disapointing...the framerate is too slow to realy get into the action of the game.. I was more concentrating on where the road and cars where going. but maybe on a emulator it runs better? never tried that. the game is fun only performance is (was?) a problem.

Don't know if anyone can remember, but screenshots of the ST version were doing the rounds from mid '89 in the likes of C+VG etc...but they were nothing like what the final game looked like. I was very disappointed with this when I paid £20 for it in '89...but now...the tears well in the eyes, and that is what emulation is all about!

One of the best arcade classics ever relesed. No doubt.
