Les graphismes sont d'enfer et d'une finesse rare. Les bruitages sont super. Que demander de plus. Gauntlet est le meilleur jeu d'arcade sur ST.
ATARImagazin (Jun, 1987)
Da man beim Spielstart mit viel Energie ausgestattet wird und zudem zahlreiche Auffrischungen erhalten kann, ist es bei "Gauntlet" möglich, auch ohne Übung längere Zeit zu spielen. Beim ersten Versuch kam ich bereits in den neunten Level und hatte viel Spaß dabei. Wer gerne solch knifflige Aufgaben löst, sollte sich "Gauntlet" unbedingt einmal ansehen.

Gauntlet sur Atari ST était considéré à sa sortie comme une excellente conversion de l’arcade, et on comprend pourquoi. Le jeu s’en tire avec les honneurs, et est toujours aussi agréable à jouer – mais pas à plus de deux, malheureusement, et en faisant quelques sacrifices du côté de la partie sonore.
Players who are undecided about which game they would rather spend their money on can send two dollars to Electronic Arts for a three level demonstration disk of Demon Stalkers (see CGW #44, February, p. 45 for details). In reality, players who crave this type of action will not be disappointed with either game. Both games allow players the opportunity to go from . . . er .. . rats to riches, a chance to go from being waist deep in monsters to waist deep in money.
