Electronic Fun with Computers & Games (May, 1983)
Data Age seems to be locked into developing games making use of "wallpaper" (in which the background scrolls past). In Journey/Escape, for instance, you maneuvered the character on the screen while he avoided groupies, managers, etc., which were on wallpaper scrolling from the top to the bottom of the screen. Although Bermuda Triangle is another scrolling game, it's really rather good.
Atari HQ (2000)
This is a well-done game, sure to become a favorite among some players. The graphics are clearly delineated and realistic; the submarine itself is comprised of at least four colors. The objects, enemies and backgrounds are also crisp and detailed, and there is a lot to look out for all the time the action is taking place. Sound effects are good, but it must be extremely difficult to simulate realistic underwater noises. Not a bad effort, and downright surprising that it came from Data Age, a company famous for its ineptitude.
All Game Guide (1998)
Reminiscent of Defender, Bermuda Triangle is a shooter that will surely hold your attention. The shooting action isn't as satisfying as what you'll find in Defender, but the game provides enough challenges and fun to make it a worthwhile purchase.
8-bit Central Retro Gaming (2014)
Data Age's Bermuda Triangle offers a fairly manic amount of fast-paced game play. You have to stay alert and play smart. The laser beam is random and can take you out without warning, but that's what the Bermuda Triangle is all about - Danger! This is a fun game with good graphics and sound. We dig it even though it kinda makes us want to surface, dry off & fire up Defender!
Game Freaks 365 (2005)
Bermuda Triangle is yet another example of the Atari 2600's later library, yet another boring shooter with hardly anything new to offer. At this point in the system's life, pretty much everything had been done and it took something really unique to stand out. Just skimming on the surface to make some cash like every other company is basically what led to the system's demise. Bermuda Triangle is an average game, at best, but in my opinion there are plenty of other average titles that you'll have more fun playing. Just avoid this one.
The Video Game Critic (Jan 11, 2003)
All in all, Bermuda Triangle doesn't play nearly as good as it looks.
Woodgrain Wonderland (Oct 06, 2016)
Unexciting, endlessly repetitive Defender/Seaquest type game representing some of the very worst of Atari 2600 shovelware.
