Ett bra spel för folk som tycket om shoot'em-up-spel som inte är så rysligt snabba. Tilläggas bör att jag tycker det är väldigt tråkigt att Firebird inte lade in tvåspelaresmöjligheten även i 64:a-versionen.
The Games Machine (UK)
The attractive coloured graphics make Flying Shark pleasing to play at first. But after a few attempts, frustration seeps because playability is sometimes unfairly tough, and new enemy squadrons appear infrequently enough that building extra fire power is difficult. A shame, because the competent programming means the graphics and sound work to good effect. If only the playability could have been tweaked to match the quality of the Spectrum version, Flying Shark could have made an first-rate game.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
If you've played the arcade or Spectrum versions of this game, then the C64 version may disappoint. The gameplay has suffered through being speeded up dramatically. This only detracts from the game, and your interest will die that much sooner.
Happy Computer
Kein sehr geistreiches Vergnügen, aber kurzweilig und auf dem C 64 gut programmiert. Was sich da an Sprite-Getümmel abspielt, ist sehenswert.
Power Play
Flying Shark bietet auf dem C64 viel Scrolling, viele Sprites und Action satt. Kein sonderlich intelligentes Spiel, aber zum Abreagieren gut geeignet.
Commodore User
Flying Shark on the 64 is one of the better coin-op conversions available - though certainly not in the same league as Bubble Bobble.

Wiping out the blue planes gives you the chance of an extra life. And that's basically the game. It's ever onwards into the wide blue yonder. Finger on the button.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Zuallererst lag mir eine Demo-Version vor, die ich recht kritisch betrachtete. Als dann das Endprodukt folgte, war ich mir sicher, daß das eiskalte Hämmerchen der Bundesprüfstelle bald wiederzuschlagen könnte (die Betonung liegt auf „könnte“!).Warum? Ganz einfach : Bei FLYING SHARK handelt es sich im engsten Sinne um ein Action-Game, das Erinnerungen an „1952“ (Name v. d. Red. Geändert!) wachruft. Das Scrolling ist ähnlich; das Game Play ist ähnlich; die Spielinhalte sind ähnlich. FIREBIRD hat also, um es auf einen Nenner zu bringen, nicht nur TAITO, sondern auch Elite nachgeäfft.
