It seems as if all at Ramsay street have gone race crazy. Yep, the whole of Erinsborough is out for the day with their go-karts, tractors, lawnmowers, bicycles and who knows what else. Now it's your chance to race with the stars - if you can stand them!

There are four characters to race against, Charlene Ramsey and her go-kart, Henry (a big hero of mine) with his powerful tractor lawnmower, Mike Young is zipping around on his skateboard and Matt Robinson (somewhat unfairly I think) is on a motorbike.

You, on the other hand, are on a skateboard, and a pretty nifty one at that. There is a choice of two different speeds, so try out both and see which you prefer.

The race track is littered with obstacles, such as Des Clark's car, Todd Lander's radio controlled car and, for good measure, a kangaroo. To score you must skate through the slalom gates, which Harold Bishop set up.

There are four race locations to choose from: Ramsay street itself, Lassiter's complex, Erinsborough High and Anson's corner. At each of these locations there are two races, each one two laps in length. And with Harold Bishop organising the whole thing how could it possibly go wrong.

BIG AL DYKES: I hate the TV program. And I thought this game was a bit of a rip off at full price. But as a budget it's well worth having.

Playing Neighbours the game is infinitely more entertaining, and interesting than watching NEIGHBOURS the TV program. It's also a lot more believable. I enjoyed NEIGHBOURS, having served my time as a skateboard nut I felt right at home tearing around Anson's corner. The graphics are fun and the playability is good too. Buy it.
