Review 1: Car and Driver reminds me of Test Drive games a lot. The physics in the game are very accurate (maybe even too much) so fast driving and good steering in the same time is not possible. The ... mode and more and better computer opponents. This is a game that I don't particularly recommend, but if you really feel you have seen all other racing games and you're rather bored, check it out!
Review 1: Haven't seen a game like this before unless it offered some kind of action/arcade sequence to the game as well. Car Builder is exactly what it says and nothing more. It's all about designing, ... its chunky CGA graphics are a bit dated, it still shines with gameplay a-plenty. I've included some "recent" cars of my own, so that you may see what can be done with the game. Enjoy!

Carrier Command is an excellent simulation that almost perfectly captures the excitement (and aggravation) of war by combining action and straetegic elements with revolutionary 3D wireframe graphics. Put ... between "Action" and "Strategy" mode depending on how much strategy you want to handle. Highly recommended. Too bad the sequel Battle Command is much inferior to this classic.
Cartel$ & Cutthroat$, aside from being master designer Dani Bunten's first game for the PC, is notable for being one of the first business sims in existence that remains almost two decades later as ... in BASICA. Cartel$ & Cutthroat$ is, at its worst, a challenging economic simulation that's equally educational and entertaining. At its best, it's an epitome of game design. Highly recommended.

You can select to drive either the old or a new model of a police car then race 7 opponents ... police. The game looks a bit like outrun, but that won't you stand in the way for this great race game. You probably noticed that the setting of the game in in San Fransisco, hence the name Cisco.
This is quite an amazing title for those days. You have to fly some missions with a comanche helicopter over amazing landscapes, generated by the computer. Those landscape looked in those days very realistic on your 14" screen, but nowadays you just count the pixels. Luckily you can turn off the game-music because it can be quite irritating after a while. Nevertheless a very cool game.

Similar to games such as Neuromancer or more recently Uplink, your goal in CU is to become the greatest hacker in ... unnecessary. If you enjoy games like Uplink, CU is worth a look. It's not as good as those commercial titles, but it's good enough for a few minutes of fun. Interesting, at least :)
Review 1: An excellent but hardly-known sim, Conflict achieves what it sets out to be in the title: a political simulation of age-old conflicts in the turbulent middle east. Set foreign, economic, and ... kill your country too. The game is ok, the graphics are very basic and the sounds are minimal. The gameplay is ok, but it's not a real addicting game. The main idea of the game is very good though.
One of the best shareware air combat games ever made, Corncob 3D (a.k.a. Corncob Deluxe, name of the registered version) is a great 3D flight sim set in an alternate world history (that seems a tad far-fetched ... that pits WWII planes against weird aliens, and reasonably realistic flight dynamics, Corncob 3D is an enjoyable, "light" flight sim that is well worth a look by every armchair pilot.
