Accolade
Accolade   #15


Games developed: 29
Games published: 54
Period: 1985 - 1997

In the intensely competitive arena of PC sports games, Accolade boasts one of the best and longest track records: its flagship series Test Drive, Hardball and Jack Nicklaus Championship Golf each spans over a decade and have attracted a large following and countless custom courses designed with the unmatched course designer included with the latter game's latest version.

Accolade also released over a dozen other excellent games that provide hours of fun, despite getting less fanfare and public attention than the flagship games. Accolade's knack for faithfully capturing the sport's spirit and flavor in their games is evident in these diverse games that range from the tricks in surviving Bar Games, to the adrenaline rush of Heat Wave and Grand Prix Circuit, to the nuances of performing pool tricks in Rack 'em. These games also showcase the company's excellence in graphics and animations, which are much smoother and a lot more polished that many of its competitors'.

The company was bought out by Infogrames in 1999, and now ceases to exist as a separate label.
