Zzap! (May, 1987)
A tried and tested theme, commendably developed into a glorious game.

Commodore Format (Feb, 1994)
So as long as you don't mind all the racial issues (it's not malicious, anyway), go out and get it.

Although there is a small chance you may experience slight flickering in certain situations in the Commodore version, it is more or less faultlessly produced and an exceeding playable. Overall the Commodore version of Eagles Nest is the best of the three.

Gott in Himmel! Donner und Blitzen! Ze Englishcher pigs are at it again! The title of Pandora's arcade-adventure, Into the Eagle's Nest, should be enough to warn you that you're about to enter Alistair MacLean land, and just in case there's still any room for doubt, the title screens are accompanied by a fairly dreadful variation on the theme tune from '633 Squadron.'

Overall, Eagle's Nest is a thoroughly enjoyable game. Perhaps not quite top notch but Pandora shows definite signs of promise.

Die Story läßt Schlimmes vermuten, doch spielerisch kann sich Into the Eagle's Nest durchaus sehen lassen. Die spärlichen, aber sehr guten Sound-Effekte sind ebenso ungewöhnlich wie die Grafik, bei der man alles von oben sieht. Eine Weile lang kann das Spiel gut unterhalten, aber es ist gewiß kein Programm, von den man in einem Jahr noch groß reden wird.

A newer clone of Castle Wolfenstein, this arcade product is fun for a short time, but rapidly loses its interest appeal.
 
Once you have led the prisoner safely to the main floor (using elevator passes) and out the main gate, it is on to the second rescue. This, frankly, is where I have the only problem with this game. Each fortress is exactly alike, down to the types of treasures found in each room. After having so much fun exploring and mastering the first fortress, players rightfully expect to face brand-new challenges as a reward for their derring-do. It was very disappointing to find the same series of rooms as in the first castle. Aside from that, Into the Eagle's Nest was some of the best fun this jaded critic has had in ages and it is a game that most people will go back to time after time. Strategic shootout fans will find this one a blast.
