Computer and Video Games (CVG)
The idea of blowing criminals away with a variety of heavy duty weaponry is as old as the hills (if not older still), but US Gold's conversion of ESWAT manages to reach the parts that others can't reach! Perhaps it's the addictive gameplay that makes it a winner - the different levels are varied enough to sustain interest and there's always a compulsion to see the next. The graphics are fine. Some of the backdrops seem a bit ropey, but the sprites are large and extremely well-animated. The sound is fabulous. Creative Materials (the programmers) have managed to cram in some of the coin-op's speech as well as a multitude of great effects - "Let's party" scream are heroes as he jumps into action. ESWAT is a great game that is very satisfying to play - make no delay, go for it!
Power Play
Die Programmierer der Computerversionen von Eswat sollte man kurzerhand verhaften lassen. So ein Murks ist mir schon lange nicht mehr unter den Feuerknopf meines Joysticks gekommen. Die Amiga-Fassung wartet zwar mit netter Grafik, Digisprache und recht sanftem Scrolling auf, aber dafür wird's spielerisch unfair. Feind-Sprites, denen man kaum ausweichen kann, ein Munitionsvorrat, der nach spätestens zwei Sekunden verbraucht ist, und Obergegner, die nur mit viel Glück ihr Leben lassen, sorgen hier für den großen Frust.
Amiga Joker
Die Grafik wirkt stellenweise laienhaft, das Scrolling ruckelt, und der Cop bewegt sich mit der Grazie eines schwangeren Känguruhs. Abgesehen vom passablen Sound ist Eswat also eine Enttäuschung auf der ganzen Linie — gar kein Vergleich mit dem angeblich jugendgefährdenden Vorbild.
