Génération 4 (Apr, 1990)
Vraiment une belle réussite. J'en redemande !
Joystick (French) (May, 1990)
Tout dans la réalisation de ce soft est excellemment exécuté, aussi bien la musique attrayante à souhait que les graphismes soignés et variés, que l'animation des personnages, ou encore les scrollings multi-directionnels. Cependant il manque un je ne sais quoi qui nuit à la jouabilité du jeu. D'où une certaine lassitude due peut-être au nombre, à mon avis trop élevé, de ce type de jeux sur PCI. C'est dommage, car la réalisation est tellement parfaite, qu'on a vraiment de la peine... Snif! Snif! Snif!
Good as Tiger Road is it belongs to Capcom's 1987 catalogue and has been bested both in the arcades and on the Engine since. Watch this space.
Tiger Road is another middle-of-the-road fighting game that introduces your character into multitude of vertical and horizontal scrolling adventures. The action is nothing revolutionary, but it is presented well and supported by some clean graphics and sound.
Nichts Aufregendes also. Die Grafiken dieser Umsetzungen kommen an das Original aus der Spielballe zwar fast heran, doch irgendwie läßt TIGER ROAD schnell Frust aufkommen. Da hilft auch kein abspeicherbarer Highscore (Highscore-Speicher, CD-Interface-Unit). Vielleicht gibt‘s Leute, denen TIGER ROAD Spaß bereitet. Mir jedenfalls läuft ein kalter Schauer den Rücken ‘runter, wenn jemand auch nur den Namen erwähnt.

It is a shame because Tora e no Michi looks good and can be fun to play, but the countless gameplay flaws and the brutal difficulty level just ruined it for me.
Power Play (May, 1990)
Da kann man sich ja wirklich nur noch an den Kopf fassen: Die Umsetzung des Automatenspieles "Tiger Road" ist auf der PC-Engine eine haarsträubende Katastrophe. Nicht nur, daß die Grafik und der Sound ganz und gar nicht dem hohen Standard der Engine gerecht werden (die Sprites gewinnen garantiert den Preis für die häßlichsten Spielfiguren), auch spielerisch läßt dieses Programm stark zu wünschen übrig.
The Video Game Critic (Apr 03, 2004)
The controls are responsive, but no match for the relentless armies you face. Enemies appear from out of nowhere, and they're always pouncing on your head, where you are completely vulnerable (you can't attack up!). Also annoying is how these thugs constantly regenerate, so once you defeat an enemy, you turn around and he's right there again! One of the better stages has you actually flying around a series of obstacles - sort of a precursor to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. I also enjoyed the bonus "training sessions", which challenge you to perform feats like putting out fire with your weapon. But these novelties can't save Tiger Road's poorly-designed levels and unforgiving gameplay.
