Battle Squadron würde selbst in der Spielhalle eine gute Figur machen!
The Games Machine (UK)
It's the rapid-fire animation, coupled with effective sound and a long running music track containing the right amount of droning bass which puts this shoot-'em-up head and shoulders above so many others. Battle Squadron isn't a new idea, but in the genre of visually bright and addictive shoot-'em-ups, it certainly deserves to be right up there at the top of the heap.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
All in all, Battle Squadron must go into the top three Amiga shoot 'em ups, along with Xenon II and Silkworm - not to be missed.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Die hypergute Grafiken, die interessant komponierten Melodien und die fetzigen Soundeffekte verschaffen dem Neuling Innerprise einen Einstand, wie man sich ihn besser nicht wünschen könnte. Und einen vereinten Zwei-Spieler-Modus sowie eine (nicht abspeichernde) Highscoreliste gibt's natürlich auch noch. Also: Shoot them up!
Power Play
Endlich mal wieder ein anständiges Baller-Spiel, das die Fähigkeiten des Amigas ausnutzt. Die Grafik ist eine Augenweide und der Sound paßt wunderbar ins Spiel. Vor allem hat mir aber die fantastische Spielbarkeit gefallen. Man merkt ganz deutlich, daß die Programmierer fleißig japanische Action-Spiele gespielt haben. Von dort stammt auch die tolle Idee mit den einstellbaren Schwierigkeitsgraden, der gerade dem Einsteiger eine gute Überlebens-Chance läßt. Profis können sich ja eine anspruchsvollere Spielstufe aussuchen.
The One
A proper variety of extra weapons would have provided some extra interest, but they're all pretty much the same as each other, and as you can only have one weapon active at a time, there's no real sense of progression as in, say, Xenon 2. As is the case with most games, the two-player mode is a lot more enjoyable - and it lasts a lot longer. But due to the lack of variety, solo players aren't likely to be compelled to fight it out to the end.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Originality goes out of the window in Battle Squadron - and it shows. A well presented, pretty playable shoot 'em up which is let down by obvious lack of thought as far as gameplay is concerned.
