Power Play
Große, bunte Sprites, schmissige Musik; Actionfans sollten sich "Defenders of the Earth" einmal genauer ansehen. Allerdings tauchen die Gegner etwas zu unmotiviert auf. Man läßt eine Menge Leben, bevor man alles im Griff hat.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
ANSONSTEN IST DEFENDERS OF THE EARTH jedoch ein arg durchschnittliches Actionspielchen auf beiden Rechnern, das mich über die grelle Sommerflaute nicht hinwegtrösten kann. Wer hektische Spiele mit Labyrinthcharakter mag, sollte auf die zahlreichen Vorgänger zurückgreifen. Bei der Wahl zwischen den DEFENDERS OF THE EARTH und des trägen Herumliegen am Kiessee ziehe ich jedoch Letzteres vor – und tschüß...
The C64 game has some nice backgrounds, but the sprites are unremarkable. So there's little to keep you coming back for more repetitive punishment.
The Games Machine (UK)
Gameplay's altered by the lack of scrolling, different Fortress layout and pits to leap but it's still only an average budget game at full price.
