After a few weeks play the only state of mind that Alpha Waves will induce is boredom. Whether the light and sound frequencies actually do have some effect is difficult to tell - certainly no-one here noticed any difference.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Auch unter EGA schön hypnotisch und nicht einfach, ist Alpha Waves jedem PC- Besitzer wärmstens ans Herz zu legen. Amiga- und ST-Freunde können sich schon auf den Wellenritt durchs All
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Original, and absorbing for a while, but it's a bit too frustrating to keep you happy for long.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Aside from the unforgivable nonsense about virtual reality and psyche-warping "properties", Alpha Waves is an amusing romp. But so much energy and space has been expended - including the daft Mind-o-tron - it will probably only serve as a bit of light relief from "proper" games.
