I found Nemesis highly playable and extremely addictive. It has good clear graphics, smooth scrolling, slick joystick response and excellent music which sounds just like the arcade version. What else can I say, except go out and buy it. Oh, and keep up the good work Konami.

With Jailbreak, this is the first coin-op conversion Konami have done for themselves. Jailbreak was awful, this restores credibility.

Graphics are a bit blocky and pale, but it still plays like a demon. A flippin' good shoot-em-up, and the best version there is.

Vergleicht man Nemesis und Delta miteinander, so fällt Delta auf den ersten Blick als grafisch und musikalisch besseres Spiel auf. (...) Die Grafik von Nemesis ist auch sehr gut, lediglich die Musik ist „nur“ durchschnittlich. Bei intensivem Spielen macht Nemesis allerdings wesentlich mehr Spaß. Gerade in den höheren Leveln kommt es bei Delta nur darauf an, das richtige Extra zur richtigen Zeit zu haben, sonst ist man chancenlos, während Nemesis auch ohne Extras immer die Geschicklichkeit des Spielers fordert.

Ich sage es hier in aller Deutlichkeit: Nemesis ist das beste Action-Programm, das ich bisher gespielt habe. Es ist besser als "Uridium", besser als "Delta" und besser als "Tempest".

A playable shooter, this one. Admittedly, thers's some annoying sprite flicker and the collision detection can be a little unsatisfactory at times, but good variety in graphics and tough gameplay blends to make a good challenge.
