Génération 4
Graphiquement réussi, possédant une animation et un scrolling de bonne qualité, on retrouve également dans Robocop la voie digitalisée de l'original. Bref, si vous aimez les jeux de ce style, vous serez comblé, surtout que les gros engins de fin de tableau sont toujours aussi impressionnants que dans l'arcade. Bref, Robocop est une réussite sur toute la ligne.
The Games Machine (UK)
Ocean should really congratulate themselves, for what was excellent on 8-bit formats has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis to be reborn with samples, digitised pictures, superb presentation and all the other extras that boost it far beyond just being a very good entertainment.
The One
But all things taken in to account, RoboCop's good points outweigh its bad ones and it's a more than competent cross-conversion of both the movie and coin-op.
Power Play
Auf dem ST macht das Spiel zum Robocop-Film eine gute Figur: Saubere Grafik, präzise Steuerung und eine stimmungsvolle Anfangssequenz mit digitalisierter Sprache sorgen für einen tollen Eindruck. Die ST-Version ist allerdings eine Spur zu leicht.
Atari ST User
Robocop is well presented, the game plan has been thought through and it is enjoyable to play. I didn't like the compulsory musical accompaniment nor Robocop's relatively slow rate of movement - although the latter did add to the difficulty factor, which seemed to be pitched about right.
The One for ST Games
The inter-level photofit puzzles and imaginative end-of-level bad guys add an element of variety, but the real appeal is now (as it has ever been) for those who like to shoot first and not really bother asking questions.
ST Format
With regards to those questions at the beginning of the review, Robocop must sadly fall into the category of an over-hyped game. People should learn to buy a game because of the quality, not the fact that they liked the film, arcade version, book, etc.
