This is without a doubt the best Rampage conversion I have ever played. I don't remember too much about the original, but this game seems to capture everything almost exactly. It's yet another reason to give the Master System another look and if you've had the unfortunate opportunity to actually see the NES version the entire way through, this is just the remedy you need. It's not a perfect game, but it's definitely good.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
Gameplay is addictive, and laying waste to entire cities is great fun, especially when there are two monsters on the rampage!
Rampage est un très mauvais guide touristique, toutes les villes américaines se ressemblent. Les graphismes ne sont pas terribles sans être laids, contrairement à d'autres titres Master System les couleurs ne sont pas affreuses, mais tout est tellement répétitif qu'on ne voit strictement aucune différence entre Las Vegas et Detroit par exemple. La traversée de la côte ouest à la côte est se fait dans une parfaite monotonie esthétique. Le jeu manque d'une force, d'un atout. A part les monstre et leurs grimaces affreusement rigolotes, toutes les caractéristiques sont relativement moyennes que ce soit les graphismes, la musique, les bruitages, l'animation, la maniabilité ou l'intérêt, rien ne sort du lot, rien ne pousse vraiment à jouer.
Power Play
Die Spielidee ist sehr witzig, doch nach einigen Runden verfliegt der Reiz. Vor allem alleine wird Rampage etwas langweilig; mit zwei Spielern macht‘s mehr Spaß.
Un gioco che sicuramente non vi impressionerà più di tanto, ma che giocato in compagnia vi potrà far passare ore allegre
The Games Machine (UK)
The humorous cartoon-like characters of George, Lizzie and Ralph are undoubtedly the best element in Rampage, but they can't make up for the lack of variety in the rest of the graphics. 25 is too high a price to pay for a game with such limited interest, even with the amusement of two-players.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Here is another arcade conversion that made it onto computer before the consoles, and did well for itself. Best as a two player game but gets repetitive in the extreme.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Wenn Sie sich nicht daran stören, nur kaputtzumachen, dann ist RAMPAGE das Richtige. Ansonsten wird‘s nach einiger Zeit schon etwas öde...
Retrogaming History
Considerato da molti un grande classico, Rampage non mi è mai piaciuto. Come tutti i videogiochi il gradimento di questo titolo è fortemente soggettivo. Impersonando un mostro bisogna distruggere tutto ciò che capita sotto mano (o zampa). Io, rimanendo in linea con la recensione, non posso fare altro che sconsigliarvelo. A voi la scelta.
Ma questo gioco ha qualcosa di veramente positivo? Si, in ogni livello bisogna capire qual’è il grattacelo da demolire per primo, e quale sequenza di demolizione è meglio adottare in seguito. Ogni livello richiede un minimo di osservazione, e a volte, di tentativi, per capire come superarlo senza subire troppi danni Questo aggiunge un po’ di strategia. Troppo poco se si considera l’elevata ripetitività del gameplay di Rampage e la sua realizzazione tecnica sottotono.

The Video Game Critic
Despite the lousy controls, Rampage is awfully easy, and the games seem to last forever. Since all the stages look and play pretty much the same, the game probably won't hold your interest. I will give Rampage credit for its graphics. This looks like something straight out of the arcade! There are a lot of funny animations and you can even make out the tiny people. A catchy tune loops in the background, but like the game itself, it wears thin. In my opinion Rampage is a brilliantly conceived but poorly executed title.
