Et puis bien sûr, nous retrouvons les éternels boss de fin de niveau, qui ne sont pas ce qu'il y a de plus impressionnant dans le jeu, mais qui assurent tout à fait leur rôle sans dépareiller avec le reste du soft. Avec des graphismes assez sublimes qui reflètent bien cette ambiance << bio >> originale, une animation sans reproche (des scrolls différentiels très propres, seulement quelques raentissements quand on joue à deux) et une bande musicale très techno, sans oublier une jouabilité toute proche de la perfection, Bio Hazard Battle dispose de tous les ingrédients pour devenir LE shoot 'em up de la Megadrive...

It's major thumb blister time! Bio-Hazard Battle is one of the best shoot-em-ups to come flying into the Genesis in awhile. The graphics are stunning, and the action's cunning. Even the sound is big league stuff. Missing out on Bio-Hazard will be a major disaster.

Un grande shooter. Crying emerge dalla massa grazie alla particolare ambientazione e al profondo spirito innovatore. Non si tratta di un gioco per tutti, ma gli appassionati di questo genere sapranno sicuramente apprezzarlo.

And victory you will crave, for Bio-Hazard Battle succeeds where many other have failed; it breathes innovation into a crumbling genre. What makes the game even more special is that the gimmick it relies on never burdens the game, but instead serves only to highlight that within lies everything you can expect from a competent shooter: you scroll, you shoot, and you dodge. It's happy to give you all that, and then it smugly offers you even more.

Another great Sega shooter. Okay, so you say you're tired of shooters. Take my word for it, Bio Hazard is worth checking out, I guarantee there's stuff here you've never seen before. Third generation all the way!

The Video Game Critic
Biohazard Battle is an underrated shooter with some of the freakiest, slimiest creatures you've ever seen in a video game. Slick animation gives the illusion of slithering, moist, living organisms. Some of these things look like giant sperm, and there are plenty of twisting, contorting centipede-type creatures. The ominous, weird music is effective; it sounds like a cheap sci-fi flick and still resonates in my head. Each of the four ships has unique weapons and a "power star" that serves as a shield. Each weapon has three levels of intensity. Part of the strategy is not only picking up the weapons you want, but avoiding the ones you don't! You can charge any weapon for a few seconds to release a major blast. If Biohazard Battle has a fault, it's that your ship and its power star take up too much real estate, making it difficult to maneuver and aim at the same time. But this is still a quality title, and one of the few Genesis shooters to support two-player simultaneous action.

Bio Hazard Battle ne réinvente pas le canon à plasma, mais ce qu'il fait, il le fait très bien. Sega offre à sa Mega Drive un shoot'em up différent des autres en termes d'ambiance, avec en prime un équilibre entre accessibilité et challenge idéal pour découvrir le genre, en solo ou pour une fois en coopération. La partie graphique est parfois en dessous du reste, mais sans que cela n'entame le souci du détail qui a été porté à l'atmosphère du titre, sans cesse relancée par de petits changements de scrolling, et poussée jusqu'à avoir mis des sprites différents pour le tir principal de chacun des quatre bio-vaisseaux, par exemple. Autant vous dire tout simplement que lorsqu'on a affaire à un shoot de cette qualité, on s'assoit sur ses quelques réserves et au bord de son siège, prêt à lâcher la stéréo de la dame en noir pour se perdre dans un monde étrange.

For its unusual appearance, the game is worth your money. It's pleasing to the senses, and it does create a mild spooking atmosphere. Like the average Taoplan shooter, it's the type of standard shooter you somehow just can't get enough of and can get quite difficult, though remaining quite forgiving. It certainly isn't the greatness Thunder Force IV is, and neither worth the price range Thunder Force IV is going for at the moment. For a modest price though, it's too interesting a curiosity to leave.

Bevor man sich eine Hintergrundstory aus den Fingern saugt, sollte man besser ganz auf die Ballerlegimation verzichten. Bio Hazard Battle lebt von der Grafik: matschige Gegner, schleimige Obermotze und saftige Hintergrundbilder bringen die biologische Endzeitstimmung gut rüber. Als passende akustische Unterstützung rattern eine Menge sauber digitalisierter Samples aus dem Lautsprecher. Die musikalischen Klänge sind themenbezogen dumpf. Gags wie die Änderung der Scrollgeschwindigkeit während des Fluges oder das Extrawaffensystem täuschen nicht über Fehler hinweg. Ballerfreaks dürfen sich die Actionorgie ohne spielerische Glanzpunkte dennoch zulegen.

Insects, bugs and flying meatball sperm? Yeah, Bio-Hazard Battle is that kind of 2D shoot-em-up. Sure it suffers from a lot of the cliches of the genre, but that doesn't stop this Sega shmup from being a well-designed game. Shooter fans will enjoy the unique enemy and everybody else will dance around to the catchy tunes.
