Compte tenu des capacités de chaque machine, cette version est meilleure que la précédente. Le graphisme est très réussi et la jouabilité est excellente. En revanche, il n'est pas possible de jouer à deux.

Nothing revolutionary or amazing but it's a jolly good blast for all that. Not a bad one to be remembered for Firebird.

A clean conversion of an average coin-op. Low on skill but high on kill.

Alors je ne saurais trop conseiller aux fans du jeu d'arcade d'essayer ce programme afin de peser le pour et le contre.

P-47 clearly, is not worth climbing mountains for. It is competent considering the original was nothing special – a second division coin-op at best. Sometimes it works to convert a minor arcade game as with Silkworm, but then it has to be done perfectly. P-47 just does not quite make the grade on that count either. The question is, whether you are desperate enough for a new blast. Take my advice and look elsewhere.

Simultaneous two-player mode, scrumptious loading screen, plus okay in-game message screens and good demo mode. Nicely detailed sprites and attractive, parallax scrolling backgrounds improve the coin-op. Jolly Japanese tune accompanies explosion FX. Tough at first and not very original, but attractive presentation and shoot-'em-up gameplay craw you in. Eight levels aren't that much, but its toughness and the ability to wrap round provide a fair challenge. A mediocre shoot-'em-up gets a superb but overpriced conversion.

P-47 holds nothing new in the way it plays, but could just give the hardened shoot-'em-up fan a challenge.

P-47's fun in a mindless sort of way, and it's tough enough to keep most players on their toes - but not for any great length of time... especially at the price.

Vom programmtechnischen Standpunkt gibt‘s bei ‘P47“wenig auszusetzen. Ordentliches Scrolling, kiloweise Sprites auf dem Bildschirm und eine angemessene Spielgeschwindigkeit bieten wenig Anlaß zum Meckern. Andererseits wurde bei kleinen, aber entscheidenenden Details gepfuscht. Zum Beispiel: Immer wenn ein neues Flugzeug in den Kampf geschickt wird, zeigt ein Flackern kurzzeitige Unverwundbarkeit an. Während dessen kann man allerdings keine Extras aufnehmen. Alles in allem ein durchschnittliches Ballerspiel mit Stärken (u.a. Zwei-Spieler-Modus) und Schwächen.

What I hate about this type of game is that the enemy don't behave like real pilots - they attack in preset patterns. Despite this gripe, it's a fair trigger exercise - but that's all.

Trotzdem, ganz katastrophal ist P47 nicht, dafür sorgt schon die Zwei-Spieler-gleichtzeitig-Option. Es ist halt einfach durchschnittliche Action-Kost; icht persönlich ziehe jedenfalls das thematisch ähnliche "Scramble Spirits" bei weitem vor!
