Great presentation, with info screens appearing between levels giving details about the next set of enemies you'll encounter, nice hi-score charts, nice sound effects - the works!

The graphics and sound are very polished, but the gameplay just isn't interesting enough.
Commodore User (Apr, 1989)
A reasonable game with chunky but pleasant graphics and horizontal shooting with helicopters and jeeps. Not really worth the money.
Some nice graphics and fast action, but the interest palls fairly quickly.

Success is more luck than judgement - not the perfect strategy for any game; and it's this factor above all that makes Action Force not worth spending too much time over.
Der Sound beschränkt sich im Spiel auf Schuß- und Explosionsgeräusche. Allein der Titelsound ist gut gelungen, eine eingängige Melodie, die zwar nichts Besonderes ist, aber auch nicht durch Dissonanzen auffällt. Die Grafik ist, abgesehen von den oben aufgeführten Mängeln, als Standard zu bezeichnen. Damit ist auch praktisch das ganze Game charakterisiert. Die Szenerie ist gut, die Mängel sind aber so offensichtlich, daß eine „gute“ Bewertung zu hoch gegriffen erscheint. Deshalb als Fazit; Mittelmäßig mit abfallender Tendenz. Besser ausgeführt hätte das Ganze ein Hit werden können. Schade drum!
