Video Games (Jan, 1999)
Die Ansätze sind vorhanden, doch leider weiß Eliminator nicht hundertprozentig zu überzeugen. Die Idee, sich nicht nur den Weg frei zu schießen, sondern auch noch den richtigen Ausgang zu finden ist nicht schlecht, dennoch gibt es einige Stellen, in denen wegen der etwas ungenauen Steuerung ein Energieverlust kaum zu verhindern ist. Auch hätte eine bessere KI Wunder gewirkt, denn so sind die meisten Gegner nur Kanonenfutter. Für eine Runde zwischendurch ist Eliminator allemal in Ordnung, und mit einem Kumpel kann sogar richtig Spaß bei diesem Shooter aufkommen.
Power Unlimited (Dec, 1998)
Eliminator ziet er prima uit en laat zich gemakkelijk bedienen maar eht biedt verder weinig plezier. Arena na arena robots kapotknallen heeft zo zijn beperkingen. Ook de two-player optie maakt niet veel goed.

Eliminator is one of Psygnosis’s worst releases, not for any technical reasons mind. It’s just too tough and too dull. Eliminate (i-lim-in-ayt) verb 1. get rid of; 2. remove. You got it.
Mega Fun (Mar, 1999)
Klingt eigentlich nicht schlecht, der knallharte Schwierigkeitsgrad drückt jedoch die Motivationskurve und damit die Wertung entscheidend nach unten.
GameSpot (Mar 16, 1999)
Psygnosis' Eliminator takes place in a future we all know very well at this point: a dark one, where enemies of the state compete to give viewing pleasure to the masses. The masses are starved for entertainment, you know, as you will be if you pick up or rent this game.
There’s been a lot of talk concerning violent games warping innocent kids into blood spattered psychopaths. Eliminator Is a prime example of how that view fails to see the whole picture. Its not so much the violent videogames, but crap ones like this that will force the young and Impressionable into a world of class A drugs, self mutilation and inevitably, prostitution. Games this annoying and of this low quality should come with a government health warning.

Psygnosis is on a strange kick, one that eludes us here at IGNPSX. When a game such as Colony Wars: Vengeance appears, and then within a few months, Eliminator arrives, you have to wonder who is making the calls. The first is a stunner, a great deep game, and the second, well, it's a simple, shoot-'em-up with the skin deep gameplay and simplistic design.
