Power Unlimited (Apr, 1996)
Uniek vechtspel rondom geheel uit ballen opgebouwde strijders. Het bekende 16-bit spel is nu opgewaardeerd naar 32-bit en is zo mogelijk nog leuker. Een frisse en humoristische wind in het genre moord en doodslag.
Game Players (Oct, 1995)
With real 3-D brawlers like Virtua Fighter and Tekken available, a game that's faking it looks kind of weak in comparison. It also still suffers from some confusing gameplay, and it's tough to keep your interest up in a gang of fighters who look like mutant snowmen. Not bad, just not the best.
GamePro (US) (Sep, 1995)
Ballz' appeal is mainly its non-conformist attitude. There are no flaming Dragon Punches or bloody ball-splitting fatalities. Just plenty of laughs and lots of fun. It's not for every fighter, but those looking for a change of pace should definitely get some Ballz.
The characters in Ballz do look great, the 3D is good to seen on the 3DO and the sound bangs, thumps and cackles in all the right places, but the game seems a bit old now. There's not much sense of strategy either: much of the time the best course is to hammer the joypad and hope, with no incentive to master specials. Not only this but the characters don't feel dramatically different from each other, further limiting long-term appeal. Fun but uninvolving.
Joystick (French) (Oct, 1995)
Ball Z n'est certes pas le jeu du sicèle, mais il recèle des charmes capables d'envoûter certains, alors que d'autres y restent totalement hermétiques. A essayer avant d'acheter !
3DO Magazine (UK) (Oct, 1995)
While the fighters are made of just a few balls, they turn out to be brilliantly animated characters. Combat is in full 3D with plenty of imaginative moves. Although not as precise or satisfying as SFII, it's highly original, very playable and totally hilarious.
