Au final, un beat'em'up parfait, difficile mais pas injouable, et qui en réjouira plus d'un !
Weller, um policial audacioso do futuro, é transferido para uma delegacia de Detroit. A cidade está totalmente dominada pela corrupção, quando Weller é quase morto por uma quadrilha de gangsters durante um tiroteio. Só que nessa época os Cyborgs, programados para eliminar bandidos, já foram desenvolvidos. Assim Weller se transforma em Robocop, um policial indestrutível. Só que na máquina sobraram resquícios humanos, como a lembrança de quem foram seus agressores. O objetivo de Robocop neste game é acabar com Dick Jones, o vice-presidente de uma empresa de computadores, responsável por seu acidente.

Featuring the same brand of horizontally scrolling death and sub-level puzzle games, Robocop is graphically and sonically average. The gameplay itself is also a bit on the frustrating side, and many Robo-deaths occur before you even conquer the first level! If you can put up with that, this isn't a bad offering.

Looks professional but the annoying gameplay will get to you. Robo is just too sluggish (unlike his enemies). It's very good but not brilliant.

When I first played this I thought it was very poor, mostly due to the naff graphics and sound and rather annoying control method. However, after a bit of perseverance I began to make headway and started to enjoy myself. The gameplay is challenging and varied, and it's got that addictive spark that keeps you coming back.

Wir wissen nicht, was sich die freundlichen Programmierer bei "Robocop" gedacht haben. Wir empfehlen jedem, der nicht zu den absoluten Actionexperten gehört, schon mal ein paar Beruhigungspillen. Ansonsten könnte es passieren, daß der frustgeplagte Spieler seinen Game Boy schreiend aus dem Fenster wirft. Zwar bietet Robocop reichlich optische und akustische Genüsse (pixelgenaue Grafiken, schmissige Musik und ein per Sprachausgabe blitzsauber geschnarrtes "Robocop!" beim Start), aber das täuscht nicht über den extrem harten Schwierigkeitsgrad hinweg. Zu oft gerät der Spieler in Situationen, in denen das eigene Sprite von links, von rechts und von oben unter Beschuß gerät. Ausweichen ist hier fast unmöglich. Leider sind auch lebenswichtige Extras so spärlich verstreut, daß dem Hobby-Polizisten wenig Überlebenschancen bleiben.

When a console has action games like Operation C, there's hardly room for licensee dredge like this. It's not horrific, but there's a glaring lack of care and the lead character could be anybody. The only thing truly "RoboCop" about this one is the title screen. Die-hard action fans may find something to like about this one, but they can certainly do better.
