from wikipedia
=============

Sequels
Chase H.Q. has two arcade based sequels - the widely released Special Criminal Investigation from 1989 and the extremely rare Super Chase: Criminal Termination from 1992.

Special Criminal Investigation expands on the original with the addition of guns - the passenger can rise out of the T-top of his Nissan 300ZX Z32 and shoot at oncoming targets. To take advantage of this, enemies are placed through the level and will attempt to shoot at or ram the player as they attempt to pursue the main criminal. Deviating from the relatively realistic tracks on offer in the original, the sequel features pursuits through waterfalls and unfinished sections of elevated highway. Despite this the game was generally poorly received by critics.

Super Chase: Criminal Termination was the third arcade release in the Chase H.Q. series, being released in 1992. Unlike in prior games, the protagonist's vehicle was commanded from a first-person view.

The 1997 PlayStation game Ray Tracers, developed and released by Taito, has been described as "more or less a follow up" to the game,[1] with "only a few differences" such as a different speed-boost system and a greater variety of targets.[2]

In February 2006, Chase H.Q. : Nancy Yori Kinkyuu Renraku (English: Chase H.Q. - An Urgent Call From Nancy) was presented at the Arcade Operator's Union trade show in Tokyo[3]. The game was released as Chase H.Q. 2 later in the year.

Before peeps start hammering them with emails, I have already contacted them.

Of course this is a sensitive matter and we should tread carefully with them. It looks like we scared James Bridges off all those years ago sadly, maybe it's him back again - or the guy in Denmark that won the eBay auction nearly 2 years ago now.... who knows. As soon as I know anything I can share, I'll let you guys all know.

Well we already knew it wasn't a great game (and let's face it, if it were there would have been a lot more copies made and sold), but it would be nice to see it imaged for preservations sake if nothing else. I don't believe it will have any real impact on the value of the cartridge itself, since that will remain a genuinely rare item in any case.

Agree, agree and agree.
1.It looks like it's quite worse than CHQ, no wonder then it was relegated to history.
2.Indeed, no matter how crappy it is, it'd be nice to have it
3.Dumping it would not have the slightest effect on the price of the cartridge. It is, after all (from what it seems) a crappy title, so the value of the cartridge lies in the hardware itself.

IMO the video is bad, the focus always walks in circles between the screen and the key of the keyboard. But I don't see a bad game necessarily. Consider it's a CPC,  not a PS IV or XboX720, ok?
