Joystick (French) (Jan, 1996)
Un excellent jeu d'action en 3D, insolemment jouable, avec les quelques pointes de stratégie d'un Descent et la palette de mouvements d'un Dark Forces.
GameFan Magazine (Jan, 1996)
Now this is a big surprise. How ironic is it that the same game I (wrongly) predicted would be "bileware" could in fact, turn out to be my favorite 3DO game of them all. PO'ed is a well designed, insanely addictive and surprisingly enjoyable game. The music rocks, the challenge is high and the 3-D is slicker than Fabio's forehead. I'm even looking forward to a sequel. Go figure...
Because of it's jet pack-wearing protagonist, PO'ed is similar in many ways to another new game for the 3DO, Bladeforce. But where that game is slick and stylish, PO'ed is rude, goofy and not afraid to make a few gross noises. Those who like giggling manically during stressful combat situations are sure to give this unusually tweaked shoot-em-up a strong cult following.
Power Unlimited (Feb, 1996)
Doomkloon waarin je het als kok aan boord van een ruimteschip tegen een vrachtje aliens moet opnemen. Je begint met een koekepan (!) en eindigt met missile-cams en meat-seekers. Melig & afwisselend.
Oldies Rising (Aug 05, 2008)
Un doom like assez particulier et original qui surprend par son humour et les différentes nouveautés comme le fait de pouvoir voler et grimper aux échelles, la possibilité d’avoir une partie plate formes est également d’un intérêt certain, qui apporte une plus grande dimension aux niveaux.
Mega Fun (Jan, 1996)
Bis jetzt ist PO‘ed wohl der abgedrehteste Boom-Verschnitt, Entsprechend gerne schlüpft man in die Rolle des wütenden militanten Space-Küchenchefs, der außerirdische Mutanten mit Pfannen und Plasmakanonen in Gehacktes verwandelt. Das liegt wohl vor allem an den Zutaten, wie z.B. einem durchgeknallten Szenario und dichter Baller-Action, die sich recht gut ergänzen. Was die Grafik der Levels angeht, so ist sie durchaus abwechslungsreich und vermittelt einen authentischen Eindruck von den Alien-Konstruktionen, obwohl man sich teilweise Decken- und Bodentexturen gespart hat. Die Soundeffekte machen auch Spaß, z.B. wenn der Held zu einem Rückwärtssalto à la Bruce Lee ansetzt oder einem Monster die Bratpfanne auf die Stirn drückt. Ein gewisses Manko bei PO‘ed sehe ich eigentlich nur im etwas langatmigen, ziellosen Herumwandern, das sich in manchen der Großraum-Levels zwangsläufig einstellt.
GamePro (US) (Mar, 1996)
PO'ed is a great Doom clone, but not as much fun because of the obvious control problems. If you have a 3DO, you don't have Doom (yet), so PO'ed is the next best thing. Although the control will get you PO'ed, the rest of this game is okay.
Defunct Games (Jan 15, 2006)
With so many problems, it's no wonder I hadn't heard much about this game when it came out. There were so many better games to play; I wish I had kept it that way.
The Video Game Critic (Dec 05, 2003)
There's plenty of platform jumping, as well the ability to hover with a jetpack. It's different, but it doesn't work well from the first-person point of view, and it's far too easy to overshoot your landing and become disoriented. The controls are slippery, and you're constantly sliding off the edges of platforms. In terms of graphics, the weapons you see in your hands look great, but the scenery looks terribly pixilated and the blocky monsters are poorly animated. The game lets you save at any time, but since it never prompts you, it's very easy to forget. PO'ed has some originality, but it's aged poorly and isn't nearly as entertaining as it once was.
