All Game Guide (1999)
Lucasfilm jumped into the videogame industry in a big way with this superlative Atari 5200 title, Ballblazer, a sports game that non-sports fans can also enjoy. There are no plays to remember, no special button combinations to press, and no intermissions or replays to slow things down. Instead, Ballblazer is all about fast action and intuitive play.
The Video Game Critic (Oct 26, 2002)
The sound effects are incredible, and the music is simply amazing. These remarkable tunes sound both ultra-modern and funky. Ballblazer is an exciting game, and the action gets more intense as the clock ticks down. The control is outstanding - you can accurately aim your shots -- even from a distance. If there's one inherent problem with Ballblazer, it's that the camera angle is constantly changing with respect to the ball, and therefore it's easy to get disoriented. There are nine levels of difficulty available in the one player game. Ballblazer was later "updated" for the Playstation, but that awful game didn't deserve the Ballblazer name.

Ballblazer is a must have game for it's innovation and groundbreaking aspects. Not a game I play often, but it's a keeper.
