Fazit: Ein Strategiespiel, für das sich mangels Anleitung keine Strategien entwickeln lassen.

Ship-to-ship combat in space; sequential turns coupled with simultaneous execution make this product reminiscent of early space simulations, but it provides an enjoyable interlude.

Power Play (Feb, 1991)
Auf den ersten Blick läuft einem bei "Interceptor" das taktische Wässerchen aus den zuckenden Mundwinkeln. Ganz nette Grafik, und eine tolle SF-Atmosphäre machen richtig Lust auf eine strategische Auseinandersetzung. Spielt man aber erst einmal voller Vorfreude, machen sich die ersten Schwächen des Programms bemerkbar. Es ist ja wirklich nett, daß man für siegreiche Kämpfe Punkte bekommt, aber warum der Spieler diese Punkte nicht benutzen kann, um seine Schiffe zu verbessern, ist mir schleierhaft. Außerdem schlafft das Spiel später mangels Abwechslung ganz schön ab.
 
Overall, Interceptor is quite a good game, very challenging and never the same game twice. This reviewer found no "sure-fire" strategies and no "perfect" design for ships. It is easy to imagine large numbers of people beating the keys well into the night, however, to prove that they have the "perfect" interceptor and the tactics that will always win. Warning: do not let this game fall into the hands of avid strategy players. It will be harmful to their sleep cycle.
