The Atari Times (Aug 18, 2003)
This is a common game to find nowadays too, so pick up a copy of it if you don't own one already. Don't be a "chicken" (this is also mentioned in the coin-op original) about it, intrude those flea markets, make your way through their maze of games, and shell out the "coins" that are in your "pocket" (which is also mentioned in the original)! And go Berzerk!

Otto may look silly, but he keeps the game moving and creates a sense of urgency. Always a challenge, Berzerk stands the test of time.

Atari HQ (2000)
Atari did one of its best arcade-to-home ports with Berzerk, and it's definitely worth a look, if even just as a history lesson.

Le Geek (2012)
While sadly missing the robot speech and diagonal robot fire, this home version is stylish and captures the game well. With rock solid gameplay and various difficulties to suit nearly every skill level, Berzerk is easy to recommend and one of the best arcade conversions on the system.

Você deve achar a saída de um fantástico labirinto eletrificado, no qual encostar nas paredes significa a morte! Além disso, robôs atirarão sem piedade contra você.

Game Freaks 365 (Jul 11, 2008)
Berzerk is one-player only, which is not a really big deal. With twelve game modes, this is a game that has a new challenge for you every time you think you finally have the game figured out, which gives the game a lot of potential to last a reasonably high amount of time. The game is quite common, so it is not too difficult to find or expensive to procure, so I would say there is little reason for you not to consider trying this game if you have not done so already.

That aside, Berzerk is definitely one of the best arcade ports for the VCS. However, if you simply have to have the voices, then take heart - a version of Berzerk that features the voices from the arcade, entitled Berzerk Voice Enhanced, was created by Mike Mika and released for the VCS in 2002. He also reworked the game so it more closely resembles the original arcade game.
