Amiga Power Review

Officially this game scored Amiga Power magazine's highest ever review score - 98%. Team 17's Marcus Dyson (himself a former Amiga journalist) phoned AP to say thanks immediately after seeing it. If he'd've read the review closely, he'd've realised that the text of the review was highly critical, with a score of 60% hidden within the text, and the text in the summary box was clearly sarcastic. The review is online at http://www.classicgaming.com/amigareviews/alien3d2.htm#alienbreed3d2ap (below the German-language review from Amiga Joker).

This was in AP's final issue, at a time when the magazine had been feuding with Team 17 for a long time, and I guess this (along with their Kick Off 96 review (a spoof piece in which the reviewer was charged with murdering the Amiga) in the same issue) saw them go out in a blaze of 'glory'.
