The Press Says

MobyRanks are listed below. You can read here for more information about MobyRank.
Amiga Format
Forget about the McDonald's propaganda (go on, admit it, you wouldn't mind a burger - just a little bite) and get out on the ball park and play the game.
Amiga Power
Forget any political correctness factors, McDonalds aversions or platform fatigue and just concentrate on enjoying this fabulous romp. And forget about that nasty scary McDonald fellow too.
Amiga Computing
A playable and well executed little excursion into a genre that really can't be improved upon much more. That said, this is still a title worthy of a place in many people's collections.
Amiga Force
Acclaim's enjoyable Mega Drive romp has been converted to the Amiga in great style.
Games Master
Global Gladiators is another cute platform game, but this time it isn't on a console. Better than Robocod, with marginally more to it as well.
CU Amiga
If you are new to platform games, you will get a kick out of it, but the more experienced players amongst you should look elsewhere.
Power Play
Die Amiga-Version zieht im Vergleich mit der Sega-Adaption zwar den Kürzeren, macht aber immer noch genug Spaß, um dem amerikanischen Fast-Food-Riesen zu diesem Spiel zu beglückwünschen. Vor allem der fetzige Soundtrack und die niedliche Grafik heben das Jump'n'Run deutlich vom Durchschnitt ab. Die tollen Hintergründe des Originals vermißt man jedoch ebenso schmerzlich, wie die „steuerbare“ Schleimkanone. Zudem erschreckt wieder das teilweise zu schnelle und dadurch verwirrende Scrolling. Hüpfernaturen müssen jedoch unbedingt probespielen.
The One
Yup, in all the main ratings departments GG scores well. However, it's just as well we don't have an 'Interestingness' rating because that, sadly, is where GG falls down badly. There's little variety in each worlds' monsters or scenery, so trekking about looking for the McDonald's arches (which isn't the most exciting game task ever anyway) soon becomes rather yawnsome, especially given each levels' sprawling vastness. Sorry Virgin, this one's a bit Wimpy.
Amiga Joker
Die putzige Grafik scrollt sauber in alle Richtungen, hat aber so ihre Tücken: Sobald sich das Sprite umdreht, rutscht das Bild schlagartig ein Stück zur Seite – falls das während eines Sprungs passiert, ist es um die Orientierung geschehen. Schließlich ist bei der Konvertierung auch eine der beiden Scrollebenen verschwunden, während die FX und die (anwählbaren) Rap- und Techno-Musikstücke nach wie vor toll klingen. Ein Highlight ist die Saubermann-Aktion somit nicht gerade, aber so ein Hamburger ist ja auch nicht unbedingt eine Delikatesse...
