If you're in the mood for some all-out combat between armies of huge, metal machines of death, Target Earth is definitely the way to go. The high level of challenge takes some getting used to, but once you've established yourself, the outcasts won't stand a chance.
GenesisElectronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Target Earth is a good game with an original idea that could have been better if there was more to do. Graphics are cool, but backgrounds don't have the 3-D effects of most Genesis games. Target Earth is just slightly above average, nothing spectacular.
GenesisPower Play
Zunächst verzückt ein toller Vorspann, dann folgt ein recht merkwürdiges Spiel. Man muß in mehreren Levels in einem Kampfroboter verschanzt (der als kleines Hutzel-Sprite dargestellt wird) böse Eindringlinge vom Jupiter-Mond Titan vertreiben, und schließlich die Erde zurückerobern. Das Ganze entpuppt sich als eine mäßige Mischung aus Jump'n'Run und Ballerspiel.
GenesisThe Video Game Critic
The action periodically comes to a screeching halt when you're radioed by headquarters, forcing you to page through a bunch of tedious text that cannot be skipped. But the thing I hate most of all about Target Earth is all of the random robots scampering around - you can't tell the good ones from the bad! Color is never a reliable indicator, making the game one big confusing mess. The graphics are below average, and the musical score is as generic as they come. I'm sure some gamers will have enough patience (and nostalgia) to appreciate the subtle nuances Target Earth has to offer, but casual gamers will be well advised to avoid it.
