The Games Machine (UK) (Mar, 1988)
The graphics and sound are great; solid colourful sprites whiz around very pretty backgrounds in a realistic manner, and there's a reasonable title tune as well as decent speech. As for gameplay, Mach 3 is great fun and very addictive from the start - though it might wear thin after the mad sorcerer's been defeated a few times. This is a fast shoot-'em-up in the best tradition.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Dec, 1987)
Wer nun lange genug aushält, wird einiges an excellenten Bildern sehen. Die Angreifer werden bald zu wilden, wütenden Bestien oder zu Strafen des Himmels (Feuerbälle). Das allein ist schon aufsehenerregend! Bleibt festzustellen, daß sich die Spielinhalte und -ideen stets wiederholen. Die Grafiken dagegen werden allerdings immer besser, nuancenreicher. MACH 3 ist ein gutes Beispiel dafür. Wer noch nichts Gleichwertiges hat sollte beim LORICIELS-Produkt zugreifen!
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Apr, 1988)
Although it impresses with its graphics, Mach 3 fails to really grip as a game, the action is too repetitive, and the challenge not quite tough enough or interesting enough. Atari ST Version: The highlight of the ST Mach 3 is undoubtedly the digitised speech oh what Loriciels claim is a lass from the Folie Bergeres. When you get a High Score she congratulates you with an ecstatic "Oh, boy!", so it's one game in which you might be tempted to try for points rather than progress. Graphics are very neat, but there are some annoyances in the gameplay - in particular the often unavoidable comets.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Mar, 1988)
I played the game for several hours without destroying Sfax but I did get the impression that it would not take me that long if I really put my mind to it. A very strong shoot-'em-up without doubt - but I for one would feel a lot happier buying it without such a hefty price tag.
