Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Feb, 1995)
The gameplay isn't a scratch on the total immersal of Doom, and quite honestly the graphics are all too similar and lacking in animation. Take the safe option and wait for a version of Doom on 3DO, a much safer option.

Still, Virtuoso is a fascinating slice of 90's culture that's fun to play for high score. I suspect collectors will enjoy it if only because it veers so far off the beaten path.

Virtuoso tries hard, but the chords jangle and the music is off-key. Being a rock star isn't easy. This game doesn't make it any easier.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Jul, 1995)
A weird sort of Doom wanna-be. This game adds characters to the first-person perspective and I don't like it. I really got tired of seeing the rock star/cowboy duck and shoot all the time. The biggest drawback is the fact that you can't see anything in front of you and you must rely on the Map Screen to go anywhere. Also, the music is corny, but it does go along with the game theme. There are better Doom rip-offs out there. For the desperate Doom fans only.

Letztendlich bleibt ein Ballerspiel übrig, das weder optischer, geschweige denn im spielerischen Bereich überzeugen kann.
"Virtuoso" beweist, daß man mit genug Anstrengung jedes noch so prächtige Spielkonzept trist realisieren kann. Wer jedoch eine leichtverständliche 3D-Ballerei ohne viel Taktik für gelegentliche Schlachten sucht, kann an "Virtuoso" durchaus Gefallen finden.
3DO Magazine (UK) (Feb, 1995)
Originally designed as a vehicle for a digitised rock star, Elite ultimately failed to land a celebrity - or even any decent gameplay, come to that. The various levels have some neat ideas - snowmen being particularly cute villains - but it's all far too slow and desperately unexciting. Just about the worst Doom variant around and a terrible 3DO debut for Elite, who have much better things in the pipeline.

La tristezza cala sovrana, mortificando anche il più paziente dei giocatori. Due schemi e già la voglia di spegnere la console. Inutile aggiungere altro, se non un sentito STATENE ALLA LARGA!!

I wanted to like the 3DO with all my heart. I saw it as simply a neglected system; one that simply needed the love and affection of a die-hard gamer such as myself. After all, most people passed on the Turbo Grafx, and it's one of my favorites. Games like Virtuoso are EXACTLY why no one should miss the 3DO. Games like Virtuoso may turn you off of video games entirely!
