ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
As you'd expect from the scenario, there's nothing too intellectually demanding in Jackal. Graphics are rather poor by current standards; enemy soldiers are tiny and unconvincing stick figures, while backgrounds are standard issue stuff. The merely average sound does nothing to soup up the fun.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Action, Spannung oder etwa Spaß sind Begriffe, die auf dieses Spiel kaum zutreffen. Wenn das Spiel wenigstens ein bißchen brutal wäre, dann würde es Freude machen, darüber herzuziehen, aber so...

I just hope the other versions turn out better than this offering. So far the only Konami game which we can give the thumbs to is Nemesis
. Of course, other software houses have converted Konami titles with much greater success. Ironic, isn't it?
