Graphically, Pitfighter is very good - not as awesome as the coin-op. but not far off with massive, reasonably smoothly animated characters. Special mention must go to the sprite scaling, which works remarkably well, helping in no small way to capture the feel of the arcade original. The same is true of the sound - with plenty of "oof's and urgh's and a cracking tune. Where Pitfighter can be found lacking is in its control. It takes what seems like ages for the characters to respond to your joystick movements and sometimes they don't do anything at all! Having said that, you learn to anticipate movements and get the shot in before your enemy can do anything and it's at this point that Pitfighter becomes a satisfying, if not completely accurate. conversion of a fabulous coin-op.

Amiga Action
When it was at the arcades, Pitfighter was a reasonable success but tended to rely on digitised graphics and good looks rather than highly addictive gameplay. When it appeared in the office I was rather sceptical of the its appeal. Well, I wasn't wrong. While it is quite close to the arcade original and has only lost a little speed, it does get rather tedious after an hour or so of playing. Unless you are a big fan of beat'em-ups I cannot recommend this to you. There are far better games of this type around.

Amiga Power
Interesting and distinctive looking beat-'em-up converted well to the Amiga - unfortunately the basic game is too limited (and hard to control) for it to really add up to very much.

Power Play
Den internationalen Trubel um den "Pit-Fighter"-Automaten konnte ich nie ganz verstehen. Mir sind Comic-Helden à la "Final Fight" lieber als die gewöhnungsbedürftigen Digi-Gestalten; ansonsten bot der Atari-Hit sowieso keinerlei Neuerungen. Auch auf die Amiga-Version trifft diese Grundsatzkritik zu - wenn auch nicht ganz so schwerwiegend. Mehr Spaß als viele andere Heimprügeleien macht die Umsetzung allemal. Die Digi-Gestalten sind beinahe 1:1 übernommen; was auf teurer Automatenhardware mickrig wirkt, sieht auf dem Amiga schon wesentlich spektakulärer aus. Nachdem man nicht ständig Markstücke aus der Hosentasche fischen muß, entwickelt sich das Gerangel schnell zu einem Mordsspaß. Langfristig bietet mir Pit-Fighter jedoch zu wenig Abwechslung.

Amiga Format
A brave conversion that almost comes off. Graphics initially look dire but closer inspection reveals attention to detail. Becomes uncontrollable at times. Two-player simultaneous play shows the game at its best. Fun, but no classic, Pit-fighter’s one for the curious only.

Amiga Joker
Für kurzfristigen Prügelspaß ist Pit-Fighter also allemal gut, aber sobald die Gegner abgezockt sind, wandert die Disk halt schnell in die wohlverdiente Vergessenheit.
