Chase HQSTORY / GAMEPLAY
Chase HQ is an arcade car racing game in which you have to chase your opponents to the finish line, ramming their car until they submit! The gameplay involves driving a black Porsche 928 through a variety of city and rural roads, attempting to catch up with a criminal car (described to you from 'Nancy' the operative at your head quarters). Once the car is on sight, your sirens begin to sound and you have sixty seconds to smash the car until it stops and surrenders, where it pulls over and you arrest the nasty criminal driver. The criminal's car is constantly moving away so if the player repeatedly crashes or drives too slow the criminal will ultimately escape. During some points of the game the road splits and the correct path must be taken, otherwise it will last longer to catch the criminal.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
I've been impressed with the nicely drawn cars and the vivid colors used. Most of the original arcade level details can be found in this conversion. Sprites (either cars or the surroundings) move fast while scrolling is quite smooth, although a few slowdowns occur here and there but, overall the action is fun to play on the PC Engine (or the TurboGrafx-16 respectively) system. The sound is ok, offering several nice in-game tunes but, the sonical weak side of Chase HQ is its simplistic sounds FX.
