One of the more interesting aspects of Cybermorph's playcontrol is the ability to switch perspectives. This turns out to be an essential gameplay element, as certain levels require precise navigation that is difficult to do from the normal perspective. Cybermorph shows its age, but is clearly one of the best games on the Jaguar.
Mega Fun
Der erste Test auf einer Konsole der dritten Generation und dann gleich so ein positiver! Zwar bin ich nicht unbedingt ein Freund von simulationslastigen Action-Spielen, doch nachdem ich mit dem satt in der Hand liegenden Joypad die ersten Flugstunden absolviert hatte, kannte meine Begeisterung keine Grenzen mehr. Mit Spielhallenerfahrung wie Steel Talons im Rücken zauberten die Mannen von Atari ein konkurrenzloses Fluggefühl auf den heimischen Bildschirm. Schon alleine mit dem futuristischen Jet nach belieben durch verschlungene Canyons oder hohe Skyscraper zu düsen, bereitete mir höchstes Spielvergnügen. Zwar könnte man sich darüber beschweren, daß das Spielprinzip eigentlich sehr simpel ist, doch angesichts dieser unverschämt guten Steuerung und Spielbarkeit fällt das nicht ins Gewicht. Cybermorph ist ein verdammt guter Start für den Jaguar und genau das, was Atari für eine schnelle Verbreitung braucht. Rooarr!
Cybermorph is a fine game in its own right, and carries with it the promise of Jaguar games to come – not least of which is the sequel Battlemorph from ATD, due late ’94. Like Crash ‘N Burn which is bundled with Panasonic’s 3DO, Cybermorph isn’t perfect, but it’s a damn good start. And that’s exactly what the Jaguar needs.
Just Games Retro
Cybermorph fills the requirements of a pack-in game with flying aplomb. It looks cool in a Babbages display window. Anyone can play it. It's a game you had to buy a Jaguar to play, and not just because it's an exclusive. It's a blast to play through to finish. And when you're finished, you'll be ready to head out to store to see what else the Jaguar can do.
In dem ersten Jaguar-Spiel, welches zusammen mit der Konsole ausgeliefert wird, befindet sich der Spieler in der Rolle eines Rettungssondenpiloten. Die Zeiten sind hart: Es wütet der große galaktische Krieg zwischen den eigenen und den Streitkräften des bösen "Pernitia Empire".
The Atari Times
Cybermorph is a fun game that most Jaguar owners will experience since it is the most common game. The game offers hours worth of gameplay and it's shortcomings should not destroy the game for anybody. If you loved games like Defender, you'll certainly like to fly through the levels in Cybermorph.
Cybermorph lies somewhere between several video-gaming genres, and has a distinctive flavor that will not work for everyone. Some people may dismiss its cautious pacing and lackluster effects for faster, flashier games, but for those looking for something truly different, Cybermorph can be a satisfying experience.
Cypermorph dürfte eigentlich jeder Jaguar Besitzer gut kennen, wer es noch nicht besitzt (soll es ja geben) sollte sich lieber nach den Nachfolger Battlemorph umschauen der in vielen Bereichen verbessert wurde. Als Jaguar Spiel der ersten Stunde kann man Cypermorph den Kultstatus nicht absprechen, auch wenn wenig Gameplay dahinter steht. Das ist dann aber auch schon der einzige Grund weshalb man heute noch nach diesem Spiel Ausschau halten sollte.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
I'll have to admit that I expected more from the all-powerful Jaguar, but this is a first-generation title. Cybermorph offers some cool features like nicely shaped polygons and non-linear movement, but the sound effects were horrible and Skylar was a nuisance. The idea of finding pods on the planets got old quickly. There was a lot of strategy involved making Cybermorph a decent first title.
The Video Game Critic
This was the pack-in game for the Jaguar, and I wasn't too impressed with it. You pilot a ship over the surfaces of several planets, collecting pods and weapons while shooting enemy aircraft and ground installations. The graphics are 3D polygons, but there's not much to see. The terrain is mainly flat with an occasional mountain. All of the objects have a low polygon count, making them look simple and blocky. I could have overlooked the graphics if the gameplay was exciting, but it's not. The controls are too touchy, making it difficult to turn with any precision. The framerate is poor and the action gets very choppy. A bald lady in the corner of the screen is supposed to provide guidance, but she is unhelpful and tends to repeat the same phrases over and over. On a positive note, there are plenty of cool weapons you can collect and switch between. You can select the order in which you play the stages, and the music is great. It's not a terrible game, but it hasn't aged well.
