Zero (Mar, 1991)
Adventure fanatics may be put off by the arcadey element but the game is challenging enough for the veteran without being inaccessible to the beginner. Brains as well as beauty. Coo.
Joystick (French) (Dec, 1990)
Les fanas d'aventure ne peuvent pas laisser passer Opération Stealth, ce serait une faute grave, qui, il me semble, est punie de la peine de mort dans certains pays. Enfin je suis pas sûr. Renseignez-vous.
Feinde, haarige Rätsel und schwierige Actionsequenzen lauern hingegen in großer Zahl auf unseren Reserve-Bond – wie gut, daß er da wenigstens von hübscher Optik, feinen Animationen und netten Soundtracks umgebe ist, die seinen „Führungsoffizier“ zuverlässig an den Monitor fesseln!

Tilt (Jul, 1991)
Un bon jeu malgré tout, mais qui ne vous plaira que si vous arrivez à passer outre la frustration qu'entraînent les nombreuses actions impossibles.
Die Grafik ist ganz solide, bietet für VGA-Verhältnisse aber nichts Besonderes: Gegen die neueren Adventures von Sierra und Lucasfilm Games sieht Operation Stealth etwas unterentwickelt aus. Ähnliches gilt für den Sound, der leicht lieblos aus den Lautsprechern scheppert. Das große Plus des Programms ist das komfortable Eingabesystem, das in Verbindung mit der guten deutschen Übersetzung für einen hohen Komfort sorgt. Ein »Monkey Island« ist hier zwar nicht vom Himmel gefallen, aber ein gut spielbares Adventure der gehobenen Mittelklassen. Einige Puzzles sind weder sonderlich leicht zu lösen noch übertrieben logisch konstruiert, wodurch das Programm für Einsteiger zur überharten Nuß wird.
A Force for Good (Dec, 2007)
Ultimately, it has to be said that Operation Stealth is a disappointment, and does nothing to improve on its predecessor in terms of interface or game mechanics. Although the graphics are slightly more impressive than those showcased in Future Wars, several important factors including a reliance on frequent, sub-standard, arcade sequences and a lacklustre story make this an inferior title. While it's by no means the worst adventure game in the world, this is largely one for genre completists with excessive reserves of patience. The rest are advised to check out Future Wars first and see how they get on: those seeking retro spy-based fun should perhaps consider checking out Sid Meier's Covert Action instead.
James Bond — The Stealth Affair is certainly not a game without merit, but it is, unfortunately, somewhat of a disappointment. The Cinematique system deserves to be used in future releases and its creators at Delphine have likewise proved themselves no second-rate artists and story-tellers. Next time out, perhaps the results will better reflect the talent behind them.
