The Video Game Critic (Jul 04, 2001)
Robot AI has been improved dramatically -- they deliberately avoid giving you a clean shot at them. But the biggest change is the addition of both destroyable and reflecting walls, which add subtle strategic elements. For example; missed shots will sometimes hit their mark after a ricochet, and occasionally you'll have to shoot your way through an enclosed area. You can even shoot Otto now! But beware - this makes him very angry, and he comes back twice as fast. The game continues momentarily after you die, so even after losing your last man, the robots sometimes can inadvertently earn you an extra life - just when you thought the game was over! I found Frenzy to be just as fun as Berzerk, if not more.

Frenzy is one of the many top-notch Arcade conversions for the ColecoVision that are published and developed in-house. If you don't mind dying a bunch of times before you get really good, you should give the game a try.

Frenzy is a great sequel to Berzerk. All the frenzied fun of Berzerk it amped up in Frenzy. If you loved Berzerk, the additional challenge of Frenzy should be a welcome addition. Certainly, this Colecovision version has great graphics, animation and game play. Nothing beats the manic frenzy of Frenzy... well, maybe Robotron, but that's another story.

Die Grafik selbst ist meist in hellen Farben vor einem dunklen Hintergrund gehalten und die Sprites sind dabei sehr detailliert. Wie bei anderen Arcadeumsetzungen auch bedient man sich hier vor allem verschiedenen Schusseffekten und auf eine Hintergrundmusik wird gänzlich verzichtet. Auch ein Zweispielermodus ist verfügbar, allerdings spielt man nur nacheinander und nicht miteinander.
TeleMatch (Jul, 1984)
Im Grunde wenig, da man von Coleco doch mehr Abwechslung und Originalität erwarten darf.
