Hardcore RPGers will flinch at the game's Wolfenstein clear the halls game play and will definitely stress over the lack of a good story line. But this first attempt at an action/RPG for the 3DO will involve and mesmerize you; Slayer just hacks and slashes it's way int your heart.
Joystick (French)
Slayer supplante sans problème Monster Manor, et les possesseurs de 3DO amateurs de Donjons devraient succomber. Par contre c'est dommage de s'être cantonné à un jeu d'action et de n'avoir pas renforcé l'aspect scénario.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
You definitely won't get the same game twice with this cart's four billion dungeons! This is an engrossing adventure game that RPG fans will definitely take to instantly. The graphics are well done, there are plenty of characters to pick from and the ability to create your own player-character is a big plus.

Whether you're a fan of the game, or like me, used to despise and make fun of the kids in the local Dungeons & Dragons club, you'll definitely want to check it out.
The Video Game Critic
I have to give Slayer extra credit for letting the player save his progress at any time via the pause menu. And if your system's internal memory is full, it's no problem, because the game even provides a mechanism to clear out old files! Slayer shows its age in the control department, but this is still very playable dungeon romp.

Es war zu befürchten, daß sich irgendein 3DO-Entwickler dran machen würde, ein Rollenspiel im Stil eines Wizardry auszudenken. Leider erreicht Slayer auch nicht annähernd die Klasse des Vorbilds. Obwohl in der Anleitung gejubelt wird, daß der Computer mehr als vier Milliarden unterschiedlicher Dungeons generieren könne, sind sie viel zu einfach aufgebaut und ähneln sich alle. Nach versteckten Räumen oder Items sucht man vergeblich, Gespräche mit Informanten fehlen hier genauso wie Rätselaufgaben. Auch das Spielsystem wirkt trivial und erinnert eher an einen, zwar grafisch beeindruckend umgesetzten, doch mißglückten Versuch, ein Action-Rollenspiel zu fabrizieren, das in einer völlig stumpfsinnigen und unmotivierenden Monsterjagd ausartet.
