All Game Guide
The music fares very well, providing players with a soundtrack and associated sound effects that fit the mood and pacing of the game perfectly. Upbeat, fast-paced tunes help keep the tension high. All in all, After Burner proves yet again that Sega know the arcade business like no one else. The game may be a tad short on replay value, but you'll struggle to find anything better.
Commodore Format
A very good conversion of a decidedly second rate arcade game means you should only consider this if you're already obsessed with adding it to your collection.
Power Play
Afterburner auf den C 64 umzusetzen war sicher eine undankbare Aufgabe. Der Automat verließ sich auf Spezial-Effekte und brachte spielerisch nur heiße Luft. Die C 64-Version bietet spielerisch nicht mehr und ist dazu technisch ziemlich schlimm.
