ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
A terrific coin-op conversion with plenty of frantic flying and blasting. Good sound and good graphics complement the equally good gameplay, making the most enjoyable of the Star Wars trilogy of games.
The Games Machine (UK)
The third in the trilogy adopts a scrolling, solid-graphic technique - bread and butter for the C64 - rather than utilising vector graphics. The result is a smooth, fast game - the most playable of the 8-bits. Sober to look at due to the dull colours used and with strangely quiet sound, Jedi is nonetheless considerably better than were parts one and two.
Commodore Force
Taking a detour after the vector based prequels, ROTJ is a diagonally scrolling shoot/avoid-em-up. It's jolly enough for a while, and helped a lot by the tie-in, but never aspires to greatness.
The game captures little of the coin op original: rubbish sound, bland graphics and unappealing gameplay. When are Domark going to get some brilliant programmers in to do their conversions? This is just another average blast.
Power Play
Die “Jedi-Ritter“ sind auf dem C64 wohl eher Ritter der traurigen Gestalt, denn grafisch sieht das Ganze ziemlich übel aus. Auch das Spielgefühl ist eindeutig schlechter als auf dem ST.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Als traurigen Schlußkommentar kann ich die Ergebnisse meines Tests wohl nur so zusammenfassen: Die ST-Fans erhalten ein durchschnittliches Actionspiel, die Besitzer der diversen 8-Bitter sollten sich RETURN OF THE JEDI nochmal auf Video oder im Kino reinziehen - dabei kommen sie sogar noch billiger weg.
