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.
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.

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.
