ST Format
[Budget re-release] The graphics are superb, the puzzles tricky enough and the touches of humour just the right side of smirksome. Unless you're monumentally bewildered, you won't mistake Cruise for a Corpse as anything other than a giant murder-mystery adventure, and if you decide that's what you're after, then dally, dawdle and delay no longer and sprint bravely to the nearest software vendor. And if you're not sure whether you are going to like it, then get it anyway. It's a lot of fun, by golly.
Joker Verlag präsentiert: Sonderheft
Nicht nur Hercule Poirot wäre von diesem vertrackten Digi-Krimi entzückt gewesen, auch der Liebhaber ausgefeilter Animationen gerät bei den perspektivisch stets richtigen Bewegungen des Helden ins Schwärmen!

Die Grafiken entsprechen in etwa der Amiga-Version, stellenweise sind die Animationen etwas langsamer, aber immer noch ansehnlich. Der Sound, der auf dem Amiga schon etwas nervig war, wird hier endgültig zur Ohrenqual, aber wozu gibt es denn Lautstärkeregler. Auch hier sollte eine Festplatte vorhanden sein, will man nicht alle zwei Szenen die Disketten wechseln. Insgesamt also eine gelungene Umsetzung.
