ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Nachdem TYNESOFT schon fast „GAMES“-mäßig alles ausgereizt zu haben schien, wurde doch noch einer draufgesetzt. Die BUFFALO BILL'S WILD WEST RODEO GAMES sind ohne Zweifel eine Bereicherung für Action- und Sportfreunde. Gewaltszenen gibt es nicht; der sportliche und der Geschicklichkeits-Aspekt stehen klar im Vordergrund. Das Spiel hat mir (und auch meinen Kollegen) so viel Freude bereitet, daß ich hiermit einen ASM-Hitstern vergeben muß. Grafik, Animation, Hintergrundgeschehen, Staffage und der fast alles noch überragende Sound machen es zu einem Knüller. Gut, daß es sowas noch gibt!
ST Format
The graphics are excellent with loads of colour and detail. They've got the space though because Buffalo Bill comes on three disks. Music and sound effects are good too and overall impression is that a lot of time and effort went into the appearance, both visible and audible. There's not really enough gameplay within to make for an exciting and long lasting game. It has initial novelty value and mastering the events will take both time and skill, but in the long term you'll find yourself become bored.
The Games Machine (UK)
Graphically and sonically Buffalo Bill's Wild West Rodeo Show is very good, especially on the static displays between events. Those of you who have ever dreamed of being a cowboy should try this game, but watch out for them varmits.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
It's not the most original game format, but it's nice angle to take and works as well as any of the other Games on the ST.
The One
This wild west compendium is initially fun to play and very nice to look at, but the enjoyment is short-lived and poor old Bill ultimately fails to realise his potential.
Power Play
Steuerung und Spielprinzip sind zu simpel, um auf Dauer fesseln zu können. Nur waschechte Fans von solchen Geschicklichkeits-/Sportspielen kommen bei dem Wild-West-Mix voll auf ihre Kosten.
