This game reminds me of Trailblazer. Not that this is a bad thing, as I thought that Trailblazer was brilliant. Eliminator has a few extras though, and they change the gameplay quite drastically. Instead of just steering and leaping, there's a whole lot of frenetic blasting to contend with as well. The 3D is very effective, zooming convincingly out of the distance, and the sprites are nicely coloured and detailed. In fact, the whole thing looks extremely polished. The gameplay is every bit as fast as the graphics, which means that you'll require very quick reactions to get through the levels. The only thing I'm disappointed with is the sound, which is rather weak. Still, that's no reason to ignore an extremely well presented, fast and dead playable blast.
There are surface improvements in sound but little else has been modified, the walls are samey and the speed of play and illusion of movement is no faster. However, as Eliminator is fast enough already, the literally non-stop action keeps tension and demands high.
Eliminator spielt sich dabei recht flott und macht ‘ne Menge Spaß, auch wenn die Treffsicherheit durch die leicht ungenaue Kollisionsabfrage nicht immer gegeben ist. Zusätzliche Gags, wie die auf dem Kopf stehende Straße sowie die sinnigen Passwörter zwecks Levelanwahl, runden das Spiel ab. Allerdings ist den Amiga-Usern zu empfehlen, den Sound weit runterzudrehen, denn der wurde irgendwie ziemlich mißlungen vom ST rübergezogen. Trotzdem:
Für 20 Märker ist Eliminator eine lohnende Anschaffung.
