Operation Wolf/Thunderbolt fans are sure to warm to this and indeed other gamesplayers will like its direct combat too. There's no depth to Cabal, just fast, non-stop action and a hell of a lot of bullets flying around, but it's more than enough to keep you playing - it can be as addictive as the Ops, which is surely recommendation enough for purchase.
A fab conversion of a playable, if socially unacceptable, arcade machine. Even with the lack of the original's simultaneous two-player action, Cabal is packed with gameplay which should more than satisfy the Rambo-esque blood lust within you.
Commodore Format (Oct, 1991)
Frustrating but brilliant fun. Effective graphics and hordes of enemy troops to defeat. Set your sights on it.

Der tages ingen chancer i CABAL. Et vaskeægte volds-spil, som kan spilles af alle. Grafikken er enkel, men meget god. Lyden er udmærket i starten, men for sparsom i selve spillet. Et sjovt og lettilgængeligt spil.
Insgesamt gesehen, handelt es sich bei CABAL um ein gelungenes C-64-Produkt, das nicht nur mir großen Spaß bereitete. Auch „Cruiser“ Klaus bemerkte treffend; „Ausgezeichnet!“, während Uli kurz und knapp formulierte: „Technisch brauchbar; Spielspaß hängt vom persönlichen Geschmack ab!“ Mir jedenfalls hat schon die 64er-Version gut gefallen. So freut sich der Tester auf die ST- und Amiga-Fassungen, die bald bei uns zu haben sein sollen. CABAL - find‘ ich gut!
A good port of a great arcade game, Cabal is a top-notch entry for the Commodore 64. While the premise may be simple and gameplay similar to other titles in the genre, Cabal, in small doses, provides some great gaming.
