Chariots has had a lot to thought put into it. It's well programmed and offers an addictive and entertaining arcade challenge. There's plenty of depth so the game should last. The only slight gripe is the price. £24.99 is a lot to spend on arcade entertainment - even if it does keep you up until the dawn chorus add their voice to the sound FX emanating from your computer.
The amount of objects onscreen when firepower is built up is quite impressive, and even though things noticeably slow down at limes, it never fails to be a hectic blaster. Sampled spot effects are adequate and forgettable, but the music isn't bad at all. A pricey but entertaining game.
The One (Aug, 1989)
As some arcade sections are much easier to complete than others, you end up playing the same levels over and over again only to find yourself dying on a really tough one. A password system would definitely have improved long term playability. For hours of addictive, old-fashioned entertainment though, you can't fault Chariots Of Wrath.
ST Format (Sep, 1989)
A package of six games in one has to be worth a look from even the most jaded gamer and the overall quality of those in Chariots of Wrath is good though not exceptional. A good buy if your software collection or budget is a little on the small side but you would be hard put to find an ST owner without comparable games somewhere in their collection.
Power Play (Aug, 1989)
Leider bieten die zusammengewürfelten Spielprinzipien wenig mehr als die übliche Action-Hausmannskost. Störend ist auch der Schwierigkeitsgrad. Bis zum sechsten Level ist das Programm geradezu kindisch einfach, dann wird aber die Schwierigkeit dermaßen angehoben, daß selbst ausgebuffte Action-Profis ins Schwitzen kommen.
Wer also noch nach einem Zeitvertreib auf seinem ST oder Amiga sucht, um Breakout, Shoot-Out und Arcade zu verbinden, kann sich Chariots of Wrath ja mal reinziehen (sofern dies vor dem Kauf möglich ist!). Ansonsten kann man dem Game nur geringfügige Originalität und durchschnittliche Qualität attestieren.
