Vaikka Diggers ei purekaan joka äijään ja neitoseen, on siinä hyvä fiilis. Hidastempoinen kaivelu ja kaivoksen suunnittelu on mukavaa, mutta käyttöliittymää ei ole vieläkään parannettu käteväksi, vaan kaivajien kontrollointi tapahtuu ärsyttävän menujärjestelmän kautta.

The variety of equipment keeps things interesting. Controlling your miners can sometimes seem more trouble than it's worth. A combination of Lemmings and Populous, Diggers doesn't quite offer the appeal of either.

Possédant un PC, vous n'aviez pas encore eu la joie immense de pouvoir vous amuser à exploiter toutes les ressources des planètes offertes par ce jeu. Dorénavant, cet oubli est réparé avec une version sérieusement révisée.

PC Review UK
Once you get used to the various controls, slightly clumsy icon system and huge range of obstacles, the action in Diggers is addictive. The strategic elements of controlling five characters at once, coupled with the need to use equipment, collect treasure and deal with rival teams, make this a difficult game to master. However, once you're hooked, the potential for enjoyment is very great indeed.

Den Macken zum Trotz: Tüftel-Fans beschert das Programm nach kargen Monaten dürren Denkspiel-Nachschubs einiges zum Knobeln. Wer bei Lemmings 2 oder The Humans mit Spaß bei der Sache war, wird trotz des Fummel-Frust-Faktors bei Diggers auf seine Kosten kommen.

Det här är ett spel som lånat en hel del från Lemmings, men som ändå helt klart står på egna ben.

Sous ses airs de Lemmings mêlés au concept de Boulder Dash, Diggers avait tout pour plaire aux amateurs de jeux d'aventure / réflexion. Car avec son monde particulièrement vaste, le joueur a toute liberté de creuser des lopins de terre aussi variés que dangereux. En concurrence avec l'un des clans adverses, il vous faudra jouer des coudes pour réunir rapidement des pierres précieuses et amasser assez d'argent pour pouvoir vous enfoncer dans les contrées reculées de la planète Zarg. Dommage cependant qu'une maniabilité atrocement lourde et peu intuitive ternisse cette expérience pourtant prometteuse.

אז האם כדאי לצאת למסע אל כוכה הלכת זארג? כן, אם משחק אסטרטגיה נראה לכם מעניין. כן, אם מוצא חן בעיניכם משחק שהניקוד בו הוא במונחי כספים. לא, אם אתם לא ממש זריזי אצבעות (קשה לכוון את הכורים שלכם!).

And so one is left, eventually, working out the logistics of an efficient strip-mining operation. Perhaps there is a successful game to be made of this premise – SIM CITY made civic planning fun, after all – but DIGGERS is not it. The cute graphics and concept make this look like a game for the younger set, but I think it's safe to say the average 10-year-old will find little joy calculating the optimum sweep pattern for clearing a block of dirt, while the sim-buffs who might enjoy such a task will be turned off by the goofy graphics and lapses in realism.

Whereas Lemmings has you whizzing about the screen in barely-controlled panic, clicking on icons like a lunatic to try to stop the little buggers doing something you'll regret. Diggers has you clicking on icons like a lunatic to try to get them to take effect, and the only thing you'll regret is buying it in the first place. There's really very little to recommend this game to anyone. Just be grateful they haven't come up with a game called Blockers. Now that would be exciting.

Die ansprechende Grafik und der stimmungsvolle Sound können nicht verbergen, daß das Spiel an der miserablen Steuerung scheitert. Da sich die Spielfiguren ständig dem Willen des Spielers widersetzen, löst sich die anfangs recht hohe Motivation schnell in nichts auf. Schade um die hübsche Spielidee.
