ST Action (Dec, 1993)
[Sci-fi roundup] Although the graphics aren't as polished as some rivals, Megatraveller is filled with every element of excitement you'll need to see you through for a long time.
ST Action (Mar, 1993)
Character generation was the strong point in this game. Precise and accurate to the real game. Could be tedious to non fans.
Ultimately, the decision as to whether this is the RPG for you boils down to whether or not you want to get caught up in a great deal of combat. If not, then MegaTraveller 1 provides plenty of challenge. If so, then unfortunately you'll have to look elsewhere - MegaTraveller 2 perhaps?
ST Format (Jul, 1991)
MegaTraveller is fairly true to its older role-playing form. There's plenty to see and do. It is nowhere near as slow and complex to play out as the board versions either. MegaTraveller aficionados won't be disappointed. Because of laughable graphics and poor layout, however, it's going to take you days to get into. Even if you overlook the shortfall in graphics you eventually find the gameplay becomes staid and formulaic. If you need something to fire your imagination, you won't find it here.
Games-X (Apr 26, 1991)
Definitely a game for fans of the RPG genre of computer games, but you're going to have to be patient as it is a little on the long-winded side.
Ansonsten kann das Game leider weder grafisch (Zuckelsprites, Möchtegern-Städte, PD-Weltraum) noch soundmäßig überzeugen – und auch im Menüsumpf soll hier schon so mancher Abenteurer versackt sein. Andererseits rangiert Denken und Fragen eindeutig vor Schießen, dank der kniffligen Rätsel entwickelt sich trotz der mangelhaften Präsentation so etwas wie spannende Atmosphäre.

Une belle et bonne idée ne suffit pas à faire un bon jeu. La preuve !
