D'une sobriété exemplaire, Super Break Out devrait plaire aux nostalgiques.
Mega Fun
Spielhallengruftie ohne spielerische Innovationen. Für Fans jedoch noch immer ein Muss.
I love the classics...that goes without saying. But if you're going to acquire the rights, do the game right. Look at the original, see how it plays, and base it off of that. Only stray from the design if you think it's going to improve gameplay. The programming in Super Breakout kills the potential fun the game could have had, even with the limited digital controls of the Game Boy system. The game isn't terrible, especially if you never grew up with the game, but it's definitely not an "average" Game Boy game.
All Game Guide
Overall, I was disappointed with this game. Kudos to the designers for doing a good job of creating an accurate (as humanly possible on the Game Boy Color) rendition of a bona fide Arcade classic. However an additional mode or two of play with enhanced features would help offset my (regrettable and admittedly unfair) gripes with the controls. After a couple of hours' play (extended over two days), Super Breakout for the Game Boy Color got old. I found myself wanting something more, something different. Pokémon Pinball, perhaps.

Das nach wie vor einfache Spielprinzip von Super Breakout ist daher bestenfalls nur noch für ein Spielchen zwischendurch gut. Hätten noch zwei weitere Klassiker den Weg auf dieses Modul gefunden, könnte man Super Breakout für einen Preis von zirka 70 DM durchaus als kleinen Spaßmacher akzeptieren, in dieser Form ist es allerdings ausschließlich für Hardcore-Nostalgiker geeignet.
