Amiga Computing review
gave Battle Squadron
a whopping 109% (!) in their review, with both the graphics and gameplay scores going off the scale.
The non-playable demo of the Amiga version contains an intro sequence that is animated and colorful when compared to the same but non-animated and black and white intro sequence in the game. Apparently there wasn't enough disk space for a full quality intro so they cut it down. The same cut-down intro is used in the Genesis version too.Information also contributed by
