Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Although this product is set in an AD&D world, it appears to be an Anne McCaffrey clone of the Dragonriders of Pern genre. Jousting atop a dragon with different weapons systems (fireballs, gas, etc.) often resembles a World War I fighter duel. Sadly, this product did not receive the attention or play that it deserved.

Commodore Format
In the end all you really get for your 25 quid is some nice packaging, neat presentation, elementary flying, a few droning noises and a lot of pot shots at badly drawn blobs. For action excitement and adventure, watch Highway instead.

Power Play
SSI muß sich fragen lassen, warum es ein Programm wie Dragon Strike, das von flotter 3-D-Grafik lebt, überhaupt noch auf den C 64 umsetzt. Von dem tollen Drachenflugsimulator ist jedenfalls nicht mehr viel übrig. Die Grafik, die nur noch zum Teil aus 3-D-Flächen besteht, ist farblos, langsam und langweilig. Ein Fluggefühl kommt nicht auf.
