Ikari Warriors is a great game in which you take on the role of a Rambo type character. Armed to the teeth, you storm through the jungle dispatching countless enemy soldiers, taking over their tanks and destroying their gun emplacements. It's fun, addictive and strongly recommended.
To take the negative side first, the ST screen is a little on the small side, as are the graphics, and the action can become sluggish when a lot is happening. Nevertheless none of these factors really spoil an otherwise faithful coin-op conversion, particularly in two-player mode, is a lot of fun to play.
Originality has never been a word which figures strongly in the software industry's vocabulary and I can only describe Ikari Warriors as totally predictable. I likened the game to Rambo and Commando, which were popular on the Commodore 64 over two years ago. Both games, however, were superior to Ikari Warriors in every aspect. The game-play area is confined, the graphics are underwhelming and the controls annoyingly indistinct. Undoubtedly, the game-play is challenging, but this is due to the number of adversaries and their formations which make the game very one-sided.
Bei der ST-Version sind die Sprites alle etwas größer als beim C64 ausgefallen. Aber das Spiel wird schrecklich langsam, wenn sich mehrere Gegner auf dem Bildschirm tummeln. Auch das Scrolling fängt dann zu ruckeln an. Insgesamt also kein besonders spielenswertes
