A superlative shoot 'em up which knocks Forgotten Worlds off the top slot as the best Amiga blaster. Unmissable.
Superb! It looks great, with well designed graphics and an amazing game over screen - your ship lies in a heap on the floor, which isn't too brilliant but behind the engine lies a wall of heat, distorting the objects on the wall behind it. It all sounds excellent and it plays like a dream.
The One (Jul, 1989)
There are times when things slow down, and at worst the proceedings grind to a halt when the disk is accessed, but unforgivable as these flaws are, Datastorm comes highly recommended.
Buy this game if you want to face incredible odds. And, as the box says, "Blow 'em to Bits!"
Power Play (Sep, 1989)
Trotz einiger Neuheiten wie Extrawaffen und Supergegnern wirkt das Spielprinzip ein wenig altertümlich. Wer aber schon immer eine Schwäche für Defender hatte, wird mit Datastorm gut bedient. Solide, technisch gut gemachte Action wird geboten.
Alles in allem ist DATASTORM sicher kein schlechtes Spiel, die alte Spielidee und der doch ziemlich hohe Preis könnten aber eventuell etliche potentielle Käufer abschrecken.
