Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Contemporary Ranger operations in a semiarcade
mode. Yet it is fun and it works. Challenging
to both adults and children; recommended
for a diversion from the more serious

The Games Machine (UK)
Airborne is a move away from the simulation side of MicroProse releases but is still a step above the normal Rambo

Graphics are merely average on EGA and work downwards through the standards; however, sound has been used reasonably well. The original C64 gameplay remains intact - although a touch slower - but scrolling is juddery and the gameplay is starting to show its age a little.
