Fans of the original game will welcome this with open arms, and if you haven't seen it before, then why on earth not? It's a brilliant game, so buy it.

ST Action
The well presented vector graphics, combined with the zappy effects all helped to give Empire that polished feel. I thoroughly enjoyed this game, in spite of the asteroid level. My only gripe is that the game's ending is a little bland. The first incarnation, Star Wars, at least saw you accomplishing something with the destruction of the Death Star. The Empire Strikes Back, unfortunately, ends rather abruptly.

And, ye, there's the odd burst of sampled sound from the film between levels. But difficulty and lasting interest there ain't.

Power Play
Eine merkwürdige Mischung: Drei kindisch einfache Levels und eine teuflisch schwere Asteroiden-Sequenz, die kaum ein Mensch schaffen kann, die mit einem billigen Trick aber ganz einfach überlistet werden kann. Spielspaß kommt da nur für wenige Minuten auf und mit dem spannenden Automaten ist kein Vergleich zu ziehen. Dazu kommt, daß die 3D-Grafik von „The Empire Strikes Back“ auf dem ST langsamer ist als die von „Star Wars“. Wieso hat Domark für das neue Spiel andere, anscheinend schlechtere Programmierer verpflichtet? Lobenswert ist nur die schöne Umsetzung der Star-Wars-Musik, die Soundeffekte sind hingegen von der müden Art.
