Although it's fun, Moon Patrol is dated and offers little more than a few hours entertainment.
ST Action (Aug, 1988)
Moon Patrol's graphical presentation does little justice to the game-play and its appeal can only be appreciated when played. This is traditional arcade entertainment at its best!
The conversion is faithful to the ancient coin-op and as a result the graphics are poor by today's standards. Sound, too, is predictably limited: simple explosions, laser shots, leaping over obstacles and an undemanding tune. What we have, then, is fairly standard arcade fodder of barely average presentation. But, like Missile Command it's immediately playable - for a while; it doesn't take long enough to get through the game and so offers only temporary appeal. Mouse or joystick may be used.
Tilt (Jul, 1988)
Ce programme est une reprise d'un jeu de salles d'arcade assez ancien. Hélas, la réalisation est indigne de l'Atari ST car elle est nettement inférieure à celle de l'Atari 800 XL. C'est dommage de maltraiter ainsi un ancêtre qui aurait pu connaître une nouvelle jeunesse et nous offrir de bonnes heures de jeu.
