Atari 2600The Video Game Critic (Mar 17, 2001)
The animation is smooth and the large missiles are easy to follow. It all adds up to a terrific two-player contest.

Mattel’s Armor Battle for the Intellivision was necessary because that console did not have a Combat cartridge packed in with every system. Not saying that the 1977 game wasn’t in need of an upgrade by 1982, but Armor Ambush just doesn’t bring enough new to the table compared to, say, what Arkanoid brought to basic Breakout.

Doch dieser ist mit zunehmender Spieldauer dann auch verflogen. Das Spiel endet normalerweise falls einer der beiden Kontrahenten all seine fünfzig Panzer verloren hat, doch meistens wird das wohl nicht soweit kommen. Eine Story zum Spiel ist nicht vorhanden, sowie man auch die musikalische Untermalung vermisst. Einzig und allein Soundeffekte wurden in das Spiel integriert. Zudem fehlt auch noch ein Einspielermodus, so dass ohne einen geeigneten Mitspieler das Modul im Schrank sein Dasein fristen wird.
IntellivisionAll Game Guide (1998)
When one player loses two tanks, the game moves to a new battlefield. With 240 different battlefields in the computer's memory, the game does have some replay value but not much. While the battlefields change at a sufficient pace, the basic action of driving your tanks and shooting at the other tanks gets old. Armor Battle is best when played in ten or fifteen minute segments.

Armor Ambush is pretty disappointing for a late Atari 2600 release, I expect more out of games from this time period. Graphically, it pulls it off rather well, but in other areas it's just Combat, yet again. It seems once a good game is made that breaks the mold or sets a standard, said standard is rarely gone against unless by the foolish or by third-party companies that could give a crap how bad their games are. Armor Ambush isn't terrible, just don't go running to find it. Heck, don't get it unless it's free, in my opinion.

With Armor Battle, it's clear Mattel was taking aim at Atari's Combat, trying to "show it up" with better graphics and deeper gameplay. While it may have succeeded on those counts, Armor Battle isn't that much fun to play.
