Defunct Games
The game rewards players for sticking with the learning curve and mastering the aim. Cobra Triangle offers a substantial amount of quality content, all done in fresh and inventive ways. This is easily one of the greatest 8-bit games ever made. It's a shame that neither Rare nor Nintendo updated this classic action game. It's not too late, perhaps 2011 could be the year of the Cobra!
Each level really feels like something fresh - meaning you never get bored of just doing the same thing over and over again, furthermore you look forward to seeing what the next level will bring making the game highly addictive even now. Overall Cobra Triangle is a stunning game.

Un jeu bien réalisé, original. Une réussite...
The Games Machine (UK)
You can tell that Cobra Triangle comes from the people that brought you RC Pro-Am because the same graphical style is in evidence. There are only eight levels to play, but every one is tougher than the last. Perhaps the most frustrating is the jump-the-waterfall section, but patience reaps rewards (as always).
Retrogaming History
Un titolo atipico. Probabilmente non piacerà a tutti ma di sicuro è un prodotto meritevole di attenzione e molto vario. Guidare un motoscafo e fargli saltare cascate, schivare "mulinelli", superare nemici, distruggere torrette armate, mettere in slavo persone, spostare mine, evitare sassi e molto altro risulta divertente. La difficoltà è forse tale da scoraggiare i casual gamer ma a chi cercasse una sfida "vera" potrebbe piacere molto!
I controlli sono ottimi e rispondono in maniera perfetta; il titolo Rare è pieno di personalità e di quella giocabilità che solo un retrogamer può ricordarsi; quella giocabilità creata da quei videogame in cui si doveva letteralmente sudare per terminare un livello. Ovviamente l’enorme difficoltà è controbilanciata da un ottimo divertimento e da una buona longevità. Purtroppo un titolo così difficile non può piacere ad un grandissimo numero di persone, alcuni soggetti potrebbero rimanere “infastiditi” dal grande impegno richiesto.
Ca ne l'a pas bien sûr empêché de demeurer un classique et pour certains un jeu NES favori. On regrettera juste que Rare ne soit pas allé au bout de ses efforts initiaux et ait choisi la solution de facilité pour conclure le jeu.
Power Play
Wer "R.C. Pro-Am" mochte, wird von "Cobra Triangle" nicht loszureißen sein. Jede Disziplin ist so ausgetüftelt, daß sie bis ins Ziel spannend bleibt. Das ohnehin gute Spiel wird noch durch die Extras kräftig aufgepeppt. Das Modul steckt voller Überraschungen. Läuft man beispielsweise ins Ziel ein und dreht dabei das Boot um die eigene Achse, bekommt man für jede Umdrehung tausend Punkte. Ein rundum gelungenes "Meeresfrüchtchen"; ich kann's nur empfehlen.
The Video Game Critic
The graphics are bright and attractive, with smooth animation and minimal flicker. After completing a stage, a tiny propeller sprouts from your boat and flies you to the next stage. Compared to its graphics, Cobra Triangle's music is pretty mediocre. You get three continues, but using a continue does not reset your score, and that's just wrong. Still, Cobra Triangle is a quality title that's unlike anything else out there.
Random Access
Unfortunately, nice graphics and sound do not necessarily develop into a great game experience. In fact, I think Cobra Triangle is pretty awful. The first few levels may lure you into a false sense of security where you truly believe that this game shall shower you with figurative liquid jubilance, but once you get deeper into the game, you'll learn the ugly truth: like the sea serpent on the cover, Cobra Triangle will chew you up like bacon croquettes at a dinner party. Rare has made some great games in the past, but this wasn't among them.
