Commodore Computing International (Jun, 1988)
In this brilliant conversion of Rolling Thunder US Gold have not let us down. They have come up with an excellent game, full of atmosphere and outstanding playability. Do not miss it!
The Games Machine (UK) (May, 1988)
When doors open you don't need to look to know what is happening - unlike on the Atari ST - and gunshot noises are similarly convincing. This makes the Amiga Rolling Thunder superior, although it does cost five pounds more than the Atari ST game.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (May, 1988)
Wonderful music and effects. A shame, that the gameplay then, doesn't live up to expectations. Marginally better than the ST version.
Power Play (May, 1988)
Bunt, aber recht langsam sind die Versionen für Amiga und ST. Daß Rolling Thunder auf dem ST ein etwas schleppendes Scrolling zeigt, ist noch verständlich. Aber daß die Grafik auf dem Amiga keinen Deut verbessert wurde, halte ich für eine mittlere Frechheit. Wenigstens bekommen Amiga-Besitzer wesentlich besseren Sound geboten.

RT in 16 bits could never be terrible. Sorry to upset you, guys, but it is not so hot. As you can probably see from the screenshot on this page, it bears a striking resemblance to the arcade. That is where the similarity ends. First thing to hit you is the appalling scrolling; it is slow and very jerky. The actual graphics are none too well defined either, and a few more frames of animation would not go amiss.
Australian Commodore and Amiga Review (Jul, 1988)
If you are an addict of the original, then perhaps you could justify the expense of buying this game. But if you can hold then I suggest you do.
