This is a great arcade game. The animated scenes between the battles make Stellar 7 a complete story as well. The animation and backgrounds are crisp and finely detailed, as are the soundtracks and special effects. Stellar 7 is rumored to be the favorite arcade game of author Tom Clancy; it certainly is a hit with us, and we heartily recommend it for arcade fans. The plot may not be totally original, but with great graphics, sound, and a number of different, intelligent enemies, Stellar 7 is a must buy.
There are not too many games of this class on the PC, so Stellar 7 is welcome for that reason alone. Nevertheless, the game does stand up on its own merit as being a classy product with smooth scrolling, excellant graphics and similar sound. The action is hectic and the thrill level high. One of the few games to offer advanced features and nostalgia - now that's value for money!
Stellar 7 reminds me of that golden oldie Star Glider. The gameplay is very similar in style but with the advancements in technology that have been made over the years its presentation is far better than the predecessor. The intro sequence is outstanding and the digitised speech almost blows your socks off. The gameplay could have been tedious if it wasn't for the addition of the guardians which inject new life into the game. Good graphics, excellent sound and brilliant gameplay. Worth buying if you are an action fan, especially if you stayed up to the small hours playing Star Glider.

It's difficult to know just where to place Stellar 7: it's well worth taking the time to play, but you wouldn't necessarily want to keep coming back. A definite case of 'try before you buy'.

Stellar 7 may be little more than a Starglider
derivative, but it's well put together and warrants your own inspection.
Lacks action, needs one 1 meg, and is a re-write of a six year old game that was old-fashioned to start with. But what the hell, I like it. Now, can we have Robotron
back in fashion please?
Die knallbunte Grafik ist selbst auf der detailreichsten Stufe annehmt schnell, dazu gibt‘s teilweise ganz nette Zwischenbilder. Vom Sound darf man sich dagegen keine Wunderdinge erwarten, er wird trotz Sprachausgabe bald langweilig. Die Steuerung funktioniert gut, sie könnte nur etwas mehr Möglichkeiten bieten. Aber das Gamedesign ist halt von gestern:
Aliens abschießen bis keine mehr da sind, daß hatten wir in den vergangenen zehn Jahren nun wirklich oft genug...
Dynamix hat es tatsächlich doch noch geschafft, das uralt 3-D-Ballerspiel für den Amiga umzusetzen. Vergebliche Liebesmühe: "Stellar 7" ist und bleibt ein Langweiler.
Satisfyingly mindless - but that's both a strength and a weakness.
