Antartic Adventure ist allein fast die Anschaffung das ColecoVision-Systems wert. Man hat endlich wieder einmal riesigen Spaß beim Spielen — zumindest gilt das für sämtliche (wirklich ausnahmslos!) Testspieler und für mich. Etwas Schöneres habe ich auf diesem System noch nicht gespielt.

The Video Game Critic
Antarctic Adventure is mildly amusing for a while, but it's really a one-trick pony. The ten stages are all pretty much the same, except with shorter timers that force you to make faster and faster runs. I think the game would be better if you were racing against other penguins, not just the clock. The one thing I absolutely hate is the cutesy "Skater's Waltz" tune that plays incessantly throughout the game - very annoying. Antarctic Adventure is certainly a good-looking game, but I just didn't find the gameplay particularly appealing.
