Alles in allem hat ORIGIN mit diesem Produkt ein echtes Meisterwerk hingelegt, das vor allem durch seine originelle Spielidee besticht. Der Hitstern geht jedenfalls vollauf in Ordnung. Meiner Meinung nach kommen bei diesem Game alle Strategiefreaks, ganz gleich welche Vorkenntnisse sie auch besitzen mögen, voll auf ihre Kosten.

Power Play (Jan, 1990)
Spieler mit Hang zum Programmieren dürfen sich auf die Amiga- und ST-Versionen von “Omega” freuen.

Programmers love this "simulation." Design-your-own tank and program it in quasi-computerese to survive the combat environment. If "Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" and you personally "Dream of Assembly and C," you'll love it. Otherwise, it's all geek to me.
 
As wonderful as Omega is — it is not for everyone. This is a game that will require thoughtful design work on the part of the player. The massive 250+ page manual will have to be read nearly in its entirety to get the most out of the game (although you can get by with less and still have a lot of fun). To those of us that are willing to spend the time, Omega will reward the effort most handsomely. Omega is the kind of game that is sure to develop the same kind of dedicated following that Robotwar had. It's release has been anxiously awaited around the offices of CGW. It is a real winner.
