The Atari Times
If I were forced to choose a “best game” on the 8-bit, I personally would nominate AR as one of the best games of all time on the Atari. With splendid graphics, stunning music, and innovative game play, and add the fact that it’s a game that will have you wanting more, AR has it all for a role playing game. I'm only hoping Phillip Price could finish his Alternate Reality sequel.
Happy Computer
Für Rollenspiel-Fans, die einen Atari besitzen, ist Alternate Reality mit oben genannten Einschränkungen durchaus empfehlenswert. C64, Apple II oder Amiga sind mit "The Bard's Tale" und sogar mit dem Oldie "Wizardry" besser bedient. Heißer Tip: Lieber auf das Nachfolgespiel "The Dungeon" warten, das demnächst erscheinen soll.
