The Atari Times
Eagle’s Nest is perched rather awkwardly in Atari’s XE gaming catalogue: a hybrid of Gauntlet, Dark Chambers, and Wolfenstein, it incorporates none of them successfully and only underlines the originality of these source games. It’s puzzling to thing that Atari sat on the much-superior Commando while releasing this quasi-turkey to much fanfare. Clearly, someone goofed. Eagle’s Nest marked one of the last popular appearances of the overhead-type maze blaster before the first-person shooter took over, and it is therefore more of interest to gaming historians than the gaming fan looking for a bit of quick-and-dirty arcade action. For 8-bit collectors and completists only.
