Great to look at and great to play. The many levels of action should provide an enjoyably long-lasting challenge.
The One (Feb, 1991)
The slightly inflated price aside, Wrath Of The Demon has enough substance to appeal to most players, but especially those with a weakness for pretty graphics and Shadow of the Beast-style action.
Amiga Action (Mar, 1991)
ReadySoft's other games, including Dragon's Lair and Space Ace, have all suffered from the same thing: the graphics and the sound effects are stunning, but the gameplay has suffered quite considerably. However, Wrath of the Demon, although still containing breath-taking visuals and ear-shattering sound, manages to remain quite playable. On the whole, this is an enjoyable romp for 30 quid, the unfortunately may loose its appeal quickly due to it's rather repetitive gameplay.
Auch wenn die Story mal wieder nach dem altbewährten Schema „Königreich-in-Gefahr-aber- Held-bringt-Rettung“ gestrickt ist, kann dieses Game doch durch die Umsetzung und die hohe technische Qualität überzeugen. Allen Freunden von Spielen dieses Genres, beziehungsweise allen Hobby-Conans, sei diese Anschaffung empfohlen.
Raze (Mar, 1991)
So there you are, slung into this Shadow of the Beat style action adventure. Loads of parallax scrolling, hundreds of pretty backgrounds, incredible sound and very childish gameplay that would be more at home on a three year-old platform game.
Amiga Joker (Jan, 1991)
Der relativ hohe Schwierigkeitsgrad verliert durch zwei ausgesprochen anwenderfreundliche Features viel von seinem Schrecken: Zum einen gibt es unendlich viele Continues (!)‚ zum anderen kann nach dem Bestehen eines Levels der Spielstand abgespeichert werden. Alles zusammen ein wirklich brauchbares Game, das zudem nicht einmal übermäßig teuer ist. Knapp 90 Eier für so viel geballte Grafikpower plus Spielspaß - da darf man einfach nicht meckern!
As the saying goes: 'pretty graphics do not a good game make' and this certainly goes for Wrath of the Demon. The game features some stunning graphics with sound which is very similar to Psygnosis' Shadow of the Beast. The game's lack of playability, however, makes for a very average game.
Power Play (Mar, 1991)
Originelle Spielideen scheinen in Kanada Mangelware zu sein: Nach unzähligen Dragon's Lair/Space Ace-Versionen orientiert sich Readysoft nun an Aufmachung, grafischer Präsentation und akustischer Untermalung des technisch eindrucksvollen "Shadow of the Beast". Ob zu Pferd oder zu Fuß muß gesprungen und geschlagen werden; hier und da krallt man sich ein unspektakuläres Extra. Ohne flinkes Auge und blitzschnelle Reaktion hat man dank des gepfefferten Schwierigkeitsgrades keine Chance. Wer sich mit einem grafisch aufgeblasenen Einfachstspielprinzip anfreunden kann, sollte probespielen.
Amiga Power (May, 1991)
[...] if you liked S.O.T.B II you'll already have bought it, so you won't need this one. Otherwise a good alternative.
