Domark go from strength to strength. The Empire Strikes Back has all the speed, playability and graphics of the arcade machine. A must for all fans of the trilogy.
Empire, whilst remarkably simple and maybe even a little bit tired as a formula, is simply the best of its ilk. It's fast, easy to play and doesn't require a great deal of thought. In short, it's just a great deal of fun.
The Games Machine (UK)
The vector graphics features in Star Wars are very much in evidence, their standard competes against the best of the genre: 3-D Starstrike
. Fast moving and colourful sprites scroll smoothly around the screen. Animation is good, especially of the AT-ATs.
Computer and Video Games (CVG)
The only thing that lets it down is it occasionally slow screen update, but other than that the game is excellent and well worth looking up.
In the words of the immortal Yoda: "Adventure, excitement - a Jedi craves not these things" but he or she is certainly going to get them from this blaster. However. If i have one reservation about The Empire Strikes Back it's about the game's lastability. The problem is that the gameplay is just a touch too easy and therefore most experienced gamesplayers will lose interest relatively quickly (or maybe I've just learned to use the force but I doubt it). It's good. But a little more work and it may have been a classic.
