Commodore User (Feb, 1988)
Whether Atari can hope to regain there pole position in the now fiercely competitive coin-op development market is uncertain. But, twenty-odd plays later, it has to be said tht Xybots bears all the hallmarks of a company that's back in business.
The Atari Times (Feb 11, 2008)
About the only bad thing I have to say about Xybots is that there is no noticeable difference in between the two exits; one's the regular exit, the other is a warp that takes you to a much later, more difficult level. If you forget which is which and hit the warp one by accident then you could be in big trouble. How impossible would it have been to put a big fat "W" in the center of the warp exit? Not very, I don't think! In conclusion, all I can say is Xybots is it's a better, much more fun alternative to polite, peaceful robots that don't even attack.
Power Play (May, 1988)
Als ich mit Martin einige Runden Xybots spielte, einigten wie uns drauf, daß es sich hier lediglich um eine 3D-Variante von „Gauntlet“ handelt. Anders als bei Gauntlet ist hier den Designern wenig eingefallen, wie sie die höheren Levels interessant machen sollen. Nur bis Level 4 kommen neue Gegner hinzu, ab da werden die Level nur durch gesteigerte Anzahl der Gegner schwerer. Auch die Grafik hat mich nicht überzeugt: Die 3D-Darstellung ruckelt zu sehr und ist bei zwei Spielern tatsächlich langsamer als bei einem. Lediglich eines hat mich stark beeindruckt: die unheimliche, mitreißende Musik. Die Klangqualität von Atari-Automaten ist im Augenblick nicht zu schlagen.
