Technisch beeindruckt das Game nicht unbedingt, da bei Sound und Grafik eher auf Sparflamme gekocht wird. Die Kombination aus Herausforderung, Strategie und Atmosphäre besticht jedoch. Die Steuerung ist recht präzise, allerdings erfordert es doch einiges an Einarbeitungszeit, um auch die letzten Tricks des Fliegerlebens erfolgreich zu beherrschen. Ein fader Nachgeschmack bleibt allerdings: Es geht in jeder Hinsicht relativ hart zur Sache, die offizielle ELSPA-Freigabe ab 3 Jahren (!!!) wirkt wie ein schlechter Witz. Auch hätte der generelle Schwierigkeitsgrad etwas geringer angesetzt werden können. Trotz allem – hier sollte man mal einen Blick riskieren!

For those who don't know, Jungle Strike is the sequel to Desert Strike and the Super NES version has been long awaited. It's been well worth it. The Super NES version is even better than the Genesis version.
Jungle took it's sweet time arriving and it may be nearly identical to the Genesis version, but those grounded to the Super NES will want to give it a shot. These games always strike a good balance between shooting and strategy and Jungle is no exception.
The Video Game Critic
Jungle Strike is hard and the action is intense. You need to proceed cautiously, because getting caught in crossfire can mean instant death. In some stages you ride a motorcycle, stealth bomber, or hovercraft, but I found these to be difficult to control and less fun than the helicopter. The SNES edition of Jungle Strike looks more polished than the original Genesis game, with cleaner graphics and smoother animation (less jerky). The explosions look much improved and the tiny terrorists actually scream when shot. On the down side, the music sounds dull and muffled, and your helicopter looks like it's only hovering about ten feet in the air! Jungle Strike is a decent sequel, but you can tell that the series was starting to spread itself a little thin.
I wish it were different, but this is a misfire. It looks like Super NES owners are never gonna know the full-tilt taste of Jungle Strike.
