Alors je ne saurais trop conseiller aux fans du jeu d'arcade d'essayer ce programme afin de peser le pour et le contre.

A faithful conversion of an unoriginal original but fun coin-op with very garish graphics.
The One
P-47's fun in a mindless sort of way, and it's tough enough to keep most players on their toes - but not for any great length of time... especially at the price.
ST Format
The Jaleco original of P47 proved popular with blast freaks, and Firebird have done an excellent job in converting it to the ST. The arcade version wasn't the best game ever, so the home version doesn't break any boundaries. It presents you with a simple shoot-'em-up that’s enjoyable but lacking the lasting interest required of a classic blast.
Power Play
Vom programmtechnischen Standpunkt gibt‘s bei ‘P47“wenig auszusetzen. Ordentliches Scrolling, kiloweise Sprites auf dem Bildschirm und eine angemessene Spielgeschwindigkeit bieten wenig Anlaß zum Meckern. Andererseits wurde bei kleinen, aber entscheidenenden Details gepfuscht. Zum Beispiel: Immer wenn ein neues Flugzeug in den Kampf geschickt wird, zeigt ein Flackern kurzzeitige Unverwundbarkeit an. Während dessen kann man allerdings keine Extras aufnehmen. Alles in allem ein durchschnittliches Ballerspiel mit Stärken (u.a. Zwei-Spieler-Modus) und Schwächen.
Micro News
Un peu plus lent que Silkworm, moins joli - et beaucoup plus difficile -, ce logiciel supporte mal la comparaison mais plaira sans doute à ceux qui n'ont jamais tâté de l'illustre ancêtre. Au royaume des aveugles, les borgnes s'en payent un jeton...
