The graphics are very attractive, though the sound is largely functional. The icons are a bit small and fiddly, especially in the thick of battle. There's lots to see and do, perhaps a little to much initially. You've got to be prepared to put something in at the beginning to get something out later. A great game for the arcade adventurer whose interests tend towards the latter.

Amiga Action (Jul, 1991)
The story line for Eco Phantoms offers a new twist to standard strategy games and is very topical in respect of the attention that the environment is receiving at the moment. But how does the game play? The copy-protection is a pain in the neck. You have to mess about with a grid and fill in patterns fat too often. Overall, the game isn't too bad; graphics, sound and gameplay are all average. If you enjoy exploring and building up your resources with a splash of blasting you may find something interesting here.

Hat man sich nach Stunden eingefuchst. erwartet einen ein grafisch leckeres Action-Abenteuer der gehobenen Mittelklasse. Details wie Hilfsroboter, aufnehmbare Gegenstände oder das Viruslabor mit Verseuchungsanzeige würzen die Jagd. Ein solider Spaß für Geduldige mit Sinn für's Schöne.

Amiga Power (Jul, 1991)
Pretty graphics, lots of controls and sub-games but nothing interesting to do. A sorry state of affairs, really.

Amiga Power (May, 1991)
Different, but not a vital game by any means.

Amiga Joker (May, 1991)
So interessant sich das alles anhören mag, so widerborstig gab sich unser Testmonster, äh Muster: Die Saveoption führte ab und an zum Absturz, nach jedem Scheitern der glorreichen Mission mußte neu geladen werden (was wegen der unglaublich umständlichen Codeabfrage besonders ärgerlich ist), und das lückenhafte englische Manual gefüllt sich oft und gern in wenig hilfreichen) Geschwafel. Da nützt die atmosphärische Grafik (teils dreidimensional) ebensowenig wie der ansprechende Titelsound, die netten FX oder die ordentliche Maussteuerung - die Rettung der Erde wird hier wohl schon am Frust des Retters scheitern...
