Captain Quazar plays like a Sunday-comics version of Loaded, but don't let that stop you from enjoying one of the best action games on the 3DO. The captain is in charge!

So, only the question remains: is Captain Quazar the character destined to be the 3DO mascot? Not likely, although the possibilities of the noble Captain mixing it up with Sony's whip-cracking Sofia are intriguing, to say the least. For now, let's just appreciate Quazar for the brilliant shooter that it is.

Captain Quazar may seem a tad quirky at first, but once you learn to strafe and begin to pile up some missions, you begin to see the designers' vision. This is a huge isometric adventure meant to make you explore and explore and explore. The graphics are among the best I've seen on the system and quite frankly, it's nice to see something hand drawn and action-oriented on the 3DO. Maybe this is what they should have been doing all along.

Melig platform/schietspel met top graphics, top geluid en een tweespeler optie. De levels zijn heel groot en de actie is vooral heel leuk met twee spelers. Bovendien zijn er acht save-game opties.

Alleine schon wegen der genialen Musik lohnt sich die Anschaffung von Captain Quasar. Gleich zu Beginn seht Ihr ein computergeneriertes Musikvideo, das auch bei MTV einen Ehrenplatz verdient hätte. Der fetzige Country-Dance-Mix aus dem ersten Level könnte von den Rednex stammen, und auch die weiteren Stücke würden in jeder Dorfdisco für Stimmung sorgen. Ansonsten ist bei Captain Quasar Action pur angesagt. Der Finger bleibt ständig auf dem Feuerknopf, von allen Seiten greifen ununterbrochen irgendwelche häßlichen Aliens an. Dank der comicartigen Grafik wirkt das eigentlich martialische Spielprinzip aber eher witzig als brutal. Obwohl es eigentlich in fast allen Spielabschnitten immer nur darum geht, möglichst alles in die Luft zu jagen und das eigentliche Ziel fast zur Nebensache wird, kommt nie Langeweile auf. Bei Captain Quasar wurde endlich mal mehr Wert auf Spielspaß als auf Grafik gelegt, das Resultat ist ein erstklassiges Action-Game.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
This is the type of title many players could get into. Even though it is a basic run-and-shoot game, it is still a load of fun to run wild, toting that gun (which is the size of a horse's leg) blasting through everything in front of you. Good graphics and plain mission objectives allow players to jump in and go wild. The intro is another original idea with a Quazar-rap and the cosmic-style characters. The only thing that brings this down is the repetitiveness.
Player One
Bref, si Captain Quasar, relativement bien réalisé, est défoulant au début, il ne reste malgré tout qu'un petit jeu d'action sympa.
All Game Guide
If you're a fan of action, blasting, and some wacky characters then track down Captain Quazar. It'll take a while to get used to the control but as soon as you do, you'll be running and blasting EVERYTHING in sight!
Game Players
Marred with complications, Captain Quazar is a let-down on several levels and though there have certainly been worse action games, it's not difficult to find better.
