Joystick (French) (Jan, 1995)
Un shoot'em up plus intelligent que la moyenne, prenant surtout en mode deux joueurs simultanés.
CU Amiga (Jan, 1995)
A excellent finale to a classic game series
Amiga Games (Dec, 1994)
Das Gefühl, von Aliens umgeben zu sein, läßt einen nicht mehr los. Das ganze Ambiente ist bei beiden Versionen (A500/A1200) toll gelungen. Was für den PC Doom 2, ist für den Amiga Alien Breed.
Amiga Joker (Dec, 1994)
Klares Fazit: Die vierte Alienjagd ist bestimmt nicht die originellste, aber doch ganz klar die ausgereifteste – und mit 49 Märkern auch ein preiswertes Vergnügen!
Amiga Computing (Jan, 1995)
Not a game I found instantly appealing, Tower Assault took a while to win me over, Once I became obsessed with improving my fire-power, however. I became increasingly hooked. I particularly like the two-player option, playing with friends suddenly makes computer games seem less nerdy and more sociable. If you have no friends (and I don't) you might try hiring some stand-ins. It would be good to see Team 17 applying its undeniable talents to a more original concept than this. The idea at the core of Tower Assault is very old indeed. All the same, the formula is still working very well thanks to some very imaginative variations. Recommended for Breed fans everywhere, it's also a must for anyone who hasn't played this type of game before.
