Smash TV is simply brilliant. The straightforward objective coupled with excellent graphics, tough, but amazingly addictive action, and some superb touches like the game show host who pops up every few screens and says amusing comments like "I'd buy that for a dollar!" makes this one of the most potent coin-gobblers I've ever played. Grab and handful of cash and seek this one out as quickly as possible.
Smash T.V. will enthrall shooter fans with its high level of intensity and constant action. However, those wanting a more thoughtful gaming experience, or at least one that is less violent, should look elsewhere.

The graphics are very classy, with a lot of cartoon-like over-the-top carnage and plenty of humor. Hardly surprising coming from pinball lineage, the sound is excellent, with sampled speech and a constant foot-tapping soundtrack. The ideal casual blast, this comes highly recommended.

Smash T.V. n’a peut-être pas inscrit son nom au panthéon des plus grands titres d’arcade, mais il l’aurait mérité tant le jeu est aussi fun que simple à prendre en main. Deux sticks, vos réflexes, votre monnaie et une opposition pléthorique – et éventuellement un allié, histoire de rendre le jeu encore plus amusant – et voilà le plaisir instantané, accompagné d’une adrénaline qui mettra du temps à retomber tant l’action est frénétique. La (grande) difficulté du titre aura au moins le mérite de ne pas lui laisser le temps de devenir redondant ou inutilement laborieux. Laissez-vous donc tenter par une petite partie et vous constaterez rapidement que, même près de trente ans après, l’essayer, c’est l’adopter.
