The Atari Times
Overall, Xybots is a great title for the Lynx, and one of the easiest and cheapest titles to get. Don't let it slip by you!
Game Zero
This is an awesome game. Tengen did a great job with this game. I like the limited view you have around corners and the different enemies stalking through the endless corridors. The graphics are stunning and make you feel like you're running through the passages blasting the xybots into oblivion. The music and sound effects are pretty good. The game control is perfect. This game will last you a long time. This is a must-buy for Lynx owners.
Power Play
Das schmissige 3-D-Action-Labyrinth-Gemetzel wurde prima fürs Lynx umgesetzt. Alle Spielelemente haben überlebt und garantieren für eine intelligente, spannende und durchdachte Alien-Abwehr.
The Video Game Critic
Xybots won't bowl you over with its generic gameplay, but Lynx fans looking for some simple shooting action will find plenty to like.
All Game Guide
Xybots is a dull game because although it has all the elements necessary for success, it never even attempts to rise above mediocrity. It has a great 3D world that could have worked out wonderfully, but in practice the world is lame and boring because no effort was expended to make the stages or enemies look interesting. It has the potential to be a really good 3D shooter, but there are very few enemy designs, and the ones that are in the game are uninspired and placed few and far between. As a result, the gameplay, which could have been an exciting fragfest, becomes a ho-hum walk and shoot exercise.
