I remember the Official mag (I presume you're referring to the UK version) and have (mostly) fond memories of it. The reviews weren't the typical shit you find in most official mags, and were usually balanced and fair. Only the very best games scored seven or more out of ten. I didn't always agree with them though !

As for three out of ten.........maybe the reviewer got out the wrong side of bed that day. I seem to remember that Fighting Force 2 got about the same score ? It just doesn't sound right, no matter how much they try and justify it. But hey, my boss at work told me I was an ugly fucker this morning and yet my girlfriend told me this evening that she thought I was a hunk :lol: There really is no accounting for taste sometimes ;)

Neohound:
I think that Speed Devils review stemmed from the US edition. Perhaps Ubisoft didn't send any 'freebies' to the mag for a decent review? :lol:

Finally, someone feels the exact same pain I had playing Spirit of Speed! :D

I'll do a review of that game later, if I can.

I've found a screenshot of one of the rankings from Speed Devils Online. Taken from DC-UK Magazine #20. Screenshot was originally very small and this is blown up considerably. Doesn't help that I have a basic scanner either!

Not sure how legit the results are though.

It was somewhat average but not half bad. I played it a lot as I liked playing on my dc over the ps2.
