Amiga CD32 Gamer
At first glance Jetstrike doesn't appear all that special. The inlay consists of simple instructions, the plane graphics are tiny and the control system is initially rather fiddly. You begin the game expecting a simplistic little blaster which will run out of lastability within a few hours. However, the more you play, the more you find, and in the en putting the joypad down becomes darn near impossible.
The One
If you're patient, and don't mind putting in a bit of time to get the most out of a game, I recommend you to try Jetstrike. If yuo're lazy, and can't be bothered to give a good game a chance, join the other plonkers in a sadly long line...
Amiga Power
The move to CD has been good for Jetstrike, and once you get past the odd control system (clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation - for flip's sake), you'll have a great time. It's quirky, it's wacky, and I like it a lots.
Amiga Format
The graphics are hailed as 24-bit but they look like an accelerated 8-bit display. The control system is awkward to get to grips with, although once mastered it becomes natural and intuitive and the complete experience drips with whole fibre nowt taken out gameplay.
CU Amiga
Jetstrike from Rasputin, sadly, is a game that belongs in a museum.
Amiga Games
Die vielen Optionen trösten leider nicht über den peinlichen Spielverlauf hinweg. Ballerspaß will bei einer überkomplizierten Steuerung logischerweise auch nicht aufkommen. Jetstrike ist eine große Enttäuschung.
Amiga Joker
Immerhin ist die horizontal scrollende Grafik deutlich schöner und der Sound sogar richtig toll geworden, denn von besseren FX über Sprachausgabe bis hin zur CD-Musik fehlt nichts, was man von seinem CD-ROM erwartet. Als Audio-CD wäre Jetstrike mit seinen (mitunter auch gut gesungenen) Tracks im Stil von ZZ Top oder Top Gun also durchaus brauchbar, wenn auch ein bißchen teuer. Als Spiel kann man die Scheibe hingegen immer noch vergessen.
