Durch die Brille wird ein toller 3D-Effekt erzeugt. Der Gesamteindruck der Cartridge ist sehr gut. Es ist, so meine ich, ein Programm, für das es sich lohnt, die 3D-Brille zu kaufen, da es auch spielerisch einiges zu bieten hat.

Maze Runner may find an audience that appreciates searching out exits, but isn't this the kind of thing we essentially did in Wolfenstein 3D? And that game actually was 3D, unlike this falsely named product. There are a lot of levels, a decent challenge, and a non-threatening item system, it's perfect for anybody who loves boring, tedious games.
The Video Game Critic
Unfortunately, all the nice graphics in the world can't hide the "by-the-numbers" gameplay. All you do is locate a key and find the exit. Sometimes you even need to backtrack, which is a pain. Hitting creatures with your club can be troublesome because you can't aim diagonally. The various stages are attractive, but the scenery (or lack of) makes them uninteresting. There's even the obligatory ice stage. I did like the catchy music however. Maze Hunter 3D is cool at first, but the novelty probably won't last.
Power Play
Wahnsinn, was für ein 3D-Effekt“ So etwas habe ich bisher noch nie erlebt. Maze Hunter schlägt hier alle bisherigen 3D-Spiele um Längen. Die tolle Grafik trägt viel zu dem überwältigenden optischen Eindruck bei. Es ist wirklich ein Jammer, daß das Spielprinzip etwas langatmig ist. Maze Hunter ist eines der typischen „Such-alles-ab-und-sammel-alles-auf“-Spiele. Situationen, in denen man kombinieren oder sogar tüfteln muß, gibt es nicht. Leider ist es auch mit der Action nicht weit her. Die fünf Gebiete unterscheiden sich nur durch andere Grafik und immer verzwicktere Labyrinthe.

Maze Hunter 3-D is a waste of time. The 3D does not add a lot to this one and without the 3D this is simply navigating a maze that is fairly linear in design. If you own the SegaScope 3-D glasses you might consider this game only because there are so few 3D games.

Overall, this game sucks. I simply can't put it in the middle the more I think about it because there just isn't enough here to go on. It's a basic maze game with little variety. It's clear they wanted to do only one thing, use an awesome peripheral as a gimmick instead of working with it and creating a finely integrated title that could go down as a memorable release from the 8-Bit era. Maze Hunter 3-D, like most of these games for the SMS, is just a game with three dimensions attached to it. It could have played without it, and that's how you know it fails.
