Atari STThe Games Machine (UK) (Jun, 1989)
Pictured above: apart from the jungle section, which looks rather atmospheric, the graphics are dull and lifeless (mainly greens and browns), which puts the dampeners on game enjoyment. It isn't quite as playable as the Spectrum version.

If the collision detection just happens to be listening at that point the guy bites the dust, more often than not he levels his rifle at you and you've cheated out yet another life. Butcher Hill is a catalogue of disasters from start to finish, you have been warned!
ZX SpectrumYour Sinclair (May, 1989)
An uninspiring idea for a game tackled in a pretty uninspiring way. No Operation Wolf (no matter how hard it tries).
Commodore 64Zzap! (Apr, 1989)
Enjoyable in the short term but too easily completed. Gameplay is also very derivative of other titles. A playable but very average mixture of exploration and shoot 'em up.
ZX SpectrumCrash! (May, 1989)
Gameplay is simple and monotonous; as is presentation. A mediocre military sim.
Commodore 64ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Apr, 1989)
Der Sound und die Special EFX, die von Ren Daglish stammen, sind ganz ordentlich - noch das Beste an einem Kriegsspiel, das sich hierzulande wohl nur wenige Wochen in den Regalen und Schaufenstern zeigen wird. BUTCHER HILL ist ein typischer Kandidat für die BPS; typischer geht‘s nimmer. Erinnerungen an den Automaten-Titel Cabal werden wach, wenn man die Geschehnisse im Dorf verfolgt. Der Unterschied allerdings: Cabal ist frei ab 18 (Spielhalle), während BUTCHER HILL jedem Kind frei zugänglich ist. Wie wär‘s denn endlich mal mit ‘ner sinnvollen Maßnahme? Vielleicht die, die die Briten schon seit Jahren praktizieren: Einen Aufkleber für Games-Software - „frei ab 12; frei ab 16; frei ab l8 Jahren“? Denkt mal alle darüber nach!
