The Video Game Critic
Often imitated but never matched, this universally-loved game is the king of multi-player mayhem.
The Atari Times
Gameplay is, obviously, near perfect when you've got a number of friends over. The AI, as I said, is quite good, but nowhere near impossible and gets old after a while, simply incapable of providing much of a challenge once you've got the hang of it. The AI can surprise you every now and then, slipping a shot in while you're not paying attention, but not terribly great when compared to an all out brawl with real, human players. Overall, this game is well worth it. It shows just how a simple concept can end up being a terrific game. I highly recommend it.
Dieses simple, aber durchaus vergnügliche Spielkonzept ist wie oben angesprochen besonders bei vier Mitspielern ein echter Hit und auch wenn von 23 verschiedenen Spieloptionen (z. B. schnellerer Ball) nur wenige wirklich brauchbar sind, wandert das Modul bei Besuch regelmäßig in den Atari Oldie.
Un jeu d'adresse et de coup d'œil où tout a été conçu pour des parties rapides et animées ; les déflagrations visuelles et sonores qui accompagnent chaque impact participent largement à l'excitation générale ; quant aux alliances que vous pourrez conclure, ne les croyez pas éternelles !
