Desert Fox is more like a glorified Battlezone than anything else. The digitised speech is one of the most outstanding aspects of this program; it's very clear with a distinct German accent. The graphics are great, with very effective 3D and the colours used nicely. The options on the title screen are very good, allowing you to practise all the different aspects of the game. The game itself requires a combination of strategy and arcade ability, making it slightly unusual to play. I really liked playing this game, and with its multitude of options and varied gameplay, it's something which should keep a budding tank commander happy until the snows thaw.

Desert Pox is extremely well presented with five skill levels and the facility to practise each of the action screens. The graphics are good and better than the original ones on the C64, but there is no speech in this version. Be warned, though. This game will appeal more to arcade players. There is very little strategy involved to interest the dedicated wargamer.

An operational simulation of the African Campaign, it attempted to mix both arcade play and simulation, and ultimately failed on both levels.

Schade, daß die Programmierer nicht auf den Nazi-Mief verzichten kennen, denn „Desert Fox“ ist eine sehr interessante Mischung aus Action- und Strategie-Spiel, die fesselnd und motivierend ist. So ist das Programm aber nur dickhäutigen Spielern zu empfehlen, die sich von der jämmerlichen Rahmenhandlung nicht gestört fühlen.
