Long awaited it may be but let us hope no-one is holding their breath because there is no R-Type miracle here. Afterburner is a dog. The various sequences and backgrounds are there, but what gameplay that existed in the coin-op has been forgotten. The graphics themselves are patchy speccy affairs and only the sound redeems the package Jez San must be rueing the day he took this job on, because for once we were right – it is unconvertible.
Computer Gaming World (CGW)
An arcade game that is far superior in the coin-op cockpit than it is on the personal computer.
