I looked at what I said in the other topic about this and I still feel the same way!

Really wanted to get into the Apollo game but just couldn't get the damn rocket to take off!
The Train is awesome and full of atmosphere.

If this means there will be an Accolade feature soon then YeeeHaaaa!!

I really liked Universal Soldier on the MD, even though it was suspiciously similar to the Turrican games...

Card Sharks on the Commodore 64 - clever animation as you play card games against Maggie (Thatcher), Ronnie (Reagan) and Gorby (President Mikhail Gorbachev).

It has to be Hardball. With "Hi-res" graphics on the C64, catchy music and quality gameplay, it certainly caught my passing interest in baseball, and then cranked it up a few notches...

The Test Drive series, in particular TD2 which I used to love on the Amiga back in the days. I know for a fact it hasn't aged well though.

I liked Hardball quite a bit, but the Test Drive games were my favourites. I played them a lot.

Still one of the best if somewhat cheesy intros ever though Lol!

Just loved the music and either the choice of the Ferrari or Porsche.

The only one that comes to mind when I hear Accolade is Bubsy. So yeah, Bubsy. The first one, not the second one.

PSi-fi looked great , but very difficult to understand whats going on

Ace of Aces would have been excellent if the I'd been able to figure how to carry out bombing missions

Killed Until Dead is a fun game , but to pick ONE it would have to be The Train , partly cos its a great game , partly cos its the only Accolade game that was any good on the Speccy
