Arcade addicts may find this conversion doesn't come up to scratch. Overall not a bad game - but the sound and frustrating bits of gameplay let it down.

Die Kämpfe auf den Waggons sind leider viel zu einfach: Durch schnelles Feuerknopfdrücken beseitigt man jeden Gegner im Nu. Wesentlich schwieriger und reizvoller sind die Schießereien vom Pferd aus. Obwohl hier spielerisch eigentlich nicht viel dahintersteckt, macht gerade diese Phase einen Heidenspaß. Hat man aber alle acht Level einmal gesehen, klingt der Reiz ab. Obwohl Express Raider eine Weile fesseln kann, bietet das Programm für sein Geld zu wenig langfristige Spielmotivation. Ein klarer Fall von guter Durchschnitt, was auch für die Grafik (klobige Sprites, gutes Scrolling) gilt. Der Sound äußert sich nur in Form von zwar passenden, aber spärlichen Effekten.

What's the first thing you noticed about this spread. Go on, admit it, it's taken you a few good seconds to get round to reading my review. You've been looking at those incredible screen shots haven't you?

There are four different skill levels from with this game plus a practise mode - you get over 30 lives instead of the usual five. Also, if you die, you can, if you choose, re-start the game again. Graphics and sound? I didn't find either particularly impressive, neither was the game varied enough to sustain my interest. Definitely a game with limited appeal.
