The Games Machine (UK) (Apr, 1990)
Presentation is excellent, with attractively-drawn full-screen title pictures (a feat I've never seen on the Amstrad before) and an animated panther on the high score table. Sprites are a little blocky and their steps don't match their movement along the streets, but animation and backgrounds are adequate. Music very good, using some nice sounds (and there aren't many of those on the Amstrad). Gameplay is inconsistent - very easy for the first two sections then suddenly tougher. A credible Amstrad beat-'em-up still lacking variation in game design.
Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Mar, 1990)
Great graphics, some originality and a fairly challenging mission make Wild Streets one of the better Amstrad games on the market.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt) (Mar, 1990)
Fazit: Reife Leistung bei der Umsetzung auf den CPC. Ein Game, das die Amstrad-Besitzer-Herzen bestimmt höher schlagen läßt. Ob man nun auch tatsächlich Bock drauf hat, WILD STREETS zu spielen, das steht wiederum auf einem ganz anderen Blatt. Mich jedenfalls macht‘s immer noch nicht an!
Retro Game Reviews (Jan 03, 2017)
Wild Streets has zero redeeming qualities and there's nothing here that's even remotely entertaining or challenging. It's littered with inexcusable bugs and the glaring gameplay issues and broken combat system show that it wasn't play-tested prior to release.
