Interesting. I remember hooking my ST up to my mate's A500 for some stunt car racer action. I forgot Lotus II had an option for link up an I'll confess at the time I figured it was ST-ST or Amiga-Amiga only, and I didn't know it was up to four players using two machines (serves me right for getting it pirated! That said if I'd bought it I doubt very much I'd've read the manual). Oh, and "Lotus 2 was considered one of the best games on the Amiga and ST"... By who? It's a good game, yes, but one of the best? on [b]both[/] platforms?... If it's only including driving games I've already mentioned one I consider better, but there's Vrooom that looked better and ran smoother (did that offer a link up too? I forget).. And, I personally really liked Overlander but maybe I should go back to play it again as I may havea rose-tinted view of the game.

But thanks for the link!

Weird, I was just watching that yesterday. Stunt car racer still sits on my all time top ten list. Brilliant game and better on the Atari IMHO.
