Amiga Format (Feb, 1994)
The sprite moves fluidly, jumping around in a similar fashion to a breakfast show fitness host and with three difficulty levels you can gradually take on a tougher challenge. It's not wildly sophisticated action but it is incredibly playable - our beloved Ed removed me from the hot seat and assassinated merrily for two hours.
Gameplay is solid but with only four backgrounds it can get boring. And sometimes control over Sassy is suspect, but overall Assassin Special Edition is everything US Gold's Strider licence should have been.
Amiga Joker (Jan, 1994)
Also alles eitel Sonnenschein? Doch, so kann man es tatsächlich sehen. Ihr solltet Euch daher nicht daran stören, daß wir dem schon vor einem Jahr ausführlich getesteten Spiel diesmal nur eine halbe Seite gewidmet haben: Die Assassin Special Edition ist ein Action-Hit, wie ihn die Welt zu diesem Preis noch nicht gesehen hat!
CU Amiga (Mar, 1994)
There can be no doubting that Assassin is an extremely polished platform game and at this price is well worth a look. But it's certainly not worth an extra tenner if you purchased the full-price version.
Amiga Power (Apr, 1994)
Seen it before? Try and get hold of the original. Sadly it's better. If you don't know the first version and you want a good, cheap game get this. It's ace.
Amiga Games (Mar, 1994)
Abgesehen von der abgedroschenen Spielidee ist Assassin all den Aktionfreaks zu empfehlen, die anfangs schnelle Erfolgserlebnisse schützen, aber dann schon bald vor knifflige Aufgaben gestellt werden wollen. Netterweise wurde die Urversion hier mit neuen Levels versehen, welche die Anschaffung der Budgetvariante rechtfertigen.
