Jaguar XJ220 vs Lotus 2 (Amiga) - Which Is The Better Racer?

Postby Zeusdaz » Sun Jun 18, 2017 12:45 pm

Hi everyone and welcome to the June 2017 edition of "WHICH IS BEST?".
Last month I placed two versions of Marble Madness on the Megadrive against each other which was the Japanese Tengen version and the World EA version, I can announce the Tengen version stormed to the win with 24 votes compared to just 2 for the EA version.
It was the lowest vote count of the series by far making me think that I may just stick to the 8-bit and Amiga games which have shown to be far more popular in this series.
So, with that in mind I give you this edition to chew over, Jaguar XJ220 vs LOTUS 2 (Amiga), which to you is the better racing game out of the two, only your votes will determine that,...Happy voting!

XJ220 was really cool to me, mostly due to its great soundtrack by Martin Iveson (aka Nuke/Anarchy aka Atjazz), featuring many sweet groovy tunes. 8)
Lotus 2 title/menu dancey tune, was also cool though, and a real classic now. ;)

Both games were quite equivalent on the gfx side, with good car and scenery sprites, and great tracks and hazards graphic engines.

But on the gameplay side, Lotus 2 was much more playable, fun and smooth than XJ220.

So, Lotus 2 is the winner for me.

(and looking back on both these 90's UK sports cars, both still look cool irl ;) )

I haven't played much Lotus 2. It looks better. But I love the mood of XJ220 (especially in the mist), and the thrash metal tune was really my favorite of all time!

LOTUS 2 WINS WITH 57 VOTES, JAGUAR GOT 14, even though Jag got thrashed, many of you feel it's still a great game, it's just that Lotus 2 was that little bit better.

Thanks to all taking part for this edition!
