All Game Guide
Though it does have its faults, MagMax is a pleasant way to waste some time. Just make sure you have a radio in the same room as your NES.
Give MagMax a shot if you still purchase or emulate NES titles, as it's more than likely been lost in the shuffle and you've looked passed it to play Super Mario Bros 2 or Contra.
Video Game Den
All in all, it is a fairly decent shooter with some excellent ideas, but don't expect anything groundbreaking nor very impressive.
The Video Game Critic
Magmax's generic enemies are somewhat redeemed by its awesome boss - a metallic multi-headed dragon! The game's quirky, playful tunes are somewhat irritating at first but tend to grow on you. Magmax isn't a great shooter, but it has an addictive quality that keeps you coming back for "one more game". If you appreciate NES shooting action, you're bound to find something to like about Magmax.
