Once you start playing, you're hooked. And there's eight levels or so to keep you playing. Cybernoid is one of the best Spectrum releases for ages and probably the best Amstrad game around at the moment.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Den Fans der beiden Rechner sei gesagt, daß CYBERNOID in jedem Falle einen Heidenspaß macht, denn das Game ist sehr schwer, läßt sich aber mit viel, viel Übung, Geschick und der richtigen Anwendung der Waffen gut lösen. Alles, was zu einem guten Shoot-em-Up dazugehört, ist also vorhanden, so daß die Motivation nicht so schnell sinken dürfte. Meiner Meinung nach wird die Qualität von CYBERNOID momentan nur noch von 10 erreicht wobei ich CYBERNOID aber wesentlich spielbarer finde. Ich freue mich jedenfalls schon die tierisch (lechz!) auf die 16-Bit-Versionen, die wir mit Sicherheit noch mal unter die Lupe nehmen werden. Bis dahin kann ich nur viel Spaß mit einem genialen Spiel eines genialen Programmierers wünschen!

Though little thought is needed to play Cybernoid, as the problems are more a question of good timing than lateral thinking, it maintains interest because there is always the desire to see just one more screen or get past a particular section without losing a life. Classic shoot-'em-ups are always fun to play and this is no exception.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The graphics are good and the music is jaunty. Gameplay is fine and generally the game lives up to all expectations. Highly playable and very frustrating.
