The Atari Times (Mar 29, 2002)
Some people are going to strongly disagree with me on this one, but I think this is the Jaguar's best game. While the game certainly has it's flaws, I play and enjoy Zero 5 more consistently than any other game in my library (and it's a big library). I hate to think what would have happened if Telegames had not released Zero 5 after the Jag's demise. If only the game had been released while our cat was alive and kicking, I think it would have gone a long way with the magazines. As it is now the game won't entice any new gamers to buy a Jaguar (what will?), but we should all be very glad this gem of a lost game was released by Telegames. With three great modes of shooting action, I have a hard time understanding how any Jaguar owner doesn't love this game.

Alle denjenigen, die die eine oder andere Schwierigkeit bzw. unglückliche Lösung als Herausforderung betrachten und testen möchten, ob Fingerspitzengefühl und Spielgeschick dazu ausreichen, die Schwächen der Programmierung zu kompensieren. Wer nach diesem Test entschieden hat, sein Jag-Budget lieber für andere Titel aufzubewahren, dem können wir schon jetzt eine Empfehlung aussprechen: Noch im Dezember soll der PC-Kassenschlager Worms erscheinen!

Zero 5 gehört zu der Sorte Jaguar Spiele, welche technisch über jeden Zweifel erhaben sind, spielerisch aber so einige Probleme mit sich bringen. Alle drei Spielarten haben weder große Abwechslung, noch sind sie richtig durchdacht. Speziell die Dogfight Steuerung kann man getrost als echte Katastrophe bezeichnen. Der viel zu hohe Schwierigkeitsgrad setzt dem Ganzen schließlich noch die Krone auf.

Zero 5 is difficult, hard to find, intense, and very fun. If you ever happen to get a copy, make sure you give it practice time so you maybe able to develop your skills to the level required to make it far into the game, where the best excitement is! Would have been great to have this game back in the Jaguar's better days.
