The game starts off slow, allowing you to get used to picking up divers and guiding your torpedoes. As the speed and number of enemies increases, gameplay eventually reaches a frantic pace. Little details like avoiding the submarine on the surface and chasing after divers that reverse direction are a nice touch. One of Activision's best, Seaquest is a must have.

The Atari Times
So, here's yet another Activision title that is simply fantastic. Thank goodness Activision showed up and "raised the bar" for Atari games when it came to sheer quality and fun. If you happen to run across a copy of Seaquest, go ahead and buy it. You'll be glad you did, and I know this cartridge is common enough to be found for a good price.

The Video Game Critic
The divers are nicely animated, but they're nearly as big as your submarine! How are they supposed to fit in that thing? Beware of the small, innocent-looking ship lurking on the surface - that little bastard will try to ram you when you surface for air!

Seaquest, so könnte man oberflächlich vermuten, ist eine Videospiel-Seeschlacht üblichen Ausmaßes, doch die Vorzeichen sind umgekehrt. Hier wird nicht geschossen, sondern - ohne zu schießen - gerettet. Die Grafik ist ein wenig zu abstrakt, der Ablauf etwas zu starr, um ungetrübte Begeisterung aufkommen zu lassen.

All Game Guide
As it stands, the game is still fun for shooter fans, and the need to surface offers an interesting twist to the tried-and-true gameplay. Yet, those looking for a refreshing change of pace may want to keep this game buried at sea.

À bordo de um submarino, você deve salvar homens-rã que estão em perigo. A missão, porém, é arriscada: submarinos inimigos tentarão destruí-lo.
