The Games Machine (UK)
As fast, if not faster, than ST and coin-op versions, it has a slightly larger playing area. The graphics and presentation are great, and the scrolling is the smoothest yet seen. The fact that it compares so well with the arcade machine is proof of Consult's talents and also the Amstrad's much underrated capabilities.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Amstrad Vindicators is also brilliant, with great graphics, sound and playability combing to give one of the best games available on this machine. If you want a stonking good blast, tank along to your shop and grab Vindicators.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Die Grafiken sind insgesamt nicht sehr gut, beim ST hat man sogar vergessen, die Panzerketten zu animieren, was der CPC aber tut. Naturgemäß ist der Sound beim ST etwas besser. Alles in allem sind beide Versionen, gemessen an den Möglichkeiten des jeweiligen Rechners, gleich gut. VINDICATORS ist mit Sicherheit kein Hit, schlecht ist es aber auch nicht, eben Mittelmaß.
Power Play
Während die ST-Version einen Tick zu leicht ist, entpuppt sich Vindicators-CPC als nervig schwer. Zu viele Gegner auf einmal trachten Ihrem Panzer nach dem Leben. Wer auf Chaos steht, wird‘s mögen - ansonsten ist die eher enttäuschende CPC-Version aber zu meiden.
