Despite these limitations, Battle Frenzy is still a thrill-a-minute game. Sega CD owners finally have a Doom disc and it's dynamite.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Those put off by the Genesis version may want to check out the Sega CD version. The scaling is a lot smoother and the sound effects seem to have been punched-up somewhat. However, as a derivative on the Doom theme. Battle Frenzy holds it's own, but it just isn't anything special. Typical of the point-the-gun-and-shoot types, there are plenty to collect, lots of enemies to blow away and huge levels to explore. It's not a bad game, just nothing special.
The Video Game Critic
I was pleasantly surprised to see the split-screen mode run faster than the normal one, making it an exception to the rule. Another positive aspect is the music, which effectively alternates between high-energy techno and dark, menacing tones. Sega CD fans and classic game collectors will probably find Battle Frenzy to be an interesting relic, but I doubt casual gamers will appreciate it.
