Berzerk is an enjoyable shooter but this port has some shortcomings in its gameplay and technical design. When things work properly it plays well but eventually you will encounter one of its many bugs and leave feeling frustrated that it wasn't polished a little bit further.

ATARI-Freunde werden aufhorchen, aber es ist so: VECTREX-Berzerk entspricht voll und ganz der ATARI-VCS-Fassung. Sollte ich abwägen, so wäre ich geneigt das VECTREX-Spiel leicht zu favorisieren.

What happened here? Blasting killer robots has never been so dull! Berzerk is an old favorite of mine, and I especially enjoy the Atari 2600 version. But this translation is sluggish and downright laborious to play. Even your character looks sloppy. The enemy robots have their trademark rotating eyes, but they look more like octopi. The robot explosions are the best aspect of the game. Berzerk plays basically like the arcade game, but lacks the excitement. Your man moves slowly, and the robots don't seem very interested. The graphics are subject to intense slow-down and flicker when several enemies are on the screen. In addition, there's a weird bug that can result in some outrageously high scores. I'll pass on this one.
