ST Format (Dec, 1989)
A few hundred words cannot do justice to such a detailed and complex game. Only its atmosphere is tense and intense gaming experience, can be described. players of other Microprose techno-epics such as gunship will understand the joy you feel when the submarine becomes your tool, and you finally understand how to employ it to total effect.
Ein besonderes Lob verdient die Anleitung, die auf über 150 Seiten alles Wissenswerte erläutert. Red Storm Rising ist somit kein Sturm im Wasserglas: Wer über die abstruse Hintergrundgeschichte hinwegsehen kann, findet eine einzigartige Mischung aus Realismus und Hochspannung!
Atari ST User (Jan, 1990)
At last, a good strategy game to keep me occupied during the long winter evenings. The realistic and tactical gameplay makes Red Storm Rising one of the better WW III games around.
A totally enjoyable simulation of contemporary attack submarine operations in the "Next War." Although some purists decry certain design decisions (made for playability), this reviewer considers the game to be one of the best on the market.
Gegenüber der ursprünglichen C-64-Fassung erweist sich die Konvertierung von RED STORM RISING für den Atari ST als eine recht billige Kopie. Hersteller MICROPROSE hat es jedenfalls kaum verstanden, die Fähigkeiten dieses 16-Bit-Rechners zur Entfaltung zu bringen.
