Video Games (Mar, 2000)
Gut Ding will Weile haben! Auch das zweite europäische Dreamcast-Projekt heimst dank ausgefeiltem Gameplay und knackigen Missionen locker einen Gold-Classic ein. Gelegenheitsspieler seien allerdings nochmal ausdrücklich gewarnt – schnell mal hinsetzen und zwei, drei Missionen spielen ist nicht! Jeder Auftrag bedarf perfekter Vorgehensweise und bestraft auch noch so kleine Fehler wie das Übersehen eines Gegners gnadenlos. (…) Die vor Abwechslung nur so strotzenden Kommandos und die Challenge-Missionen entschädigen aber für einige „Strapazen“ während der Level. Wer sich also mal wieder so richtig in einen Action-Kracher hineinbeißen will, ist bei Red Dog genau an der richtigen Stelle. Schade nur um die verpatzte Soundkulisse – hat Argonaut etwa kein eigenes Musik-Studio?

Anyone looking to buy this game should really look at it for the multiplayer mode more than the single player. If you don’t often have friends over to play it is going to stay in the box most of the time.

Game Vortex (Dec 08, 2002)
While it may not be the most original title, Red Dog is a blast. It may be too hard for some people, and the controls are a bear to get used to, but once you're into it, it keeps rewarding you with neat things to do and play with. And with solid multiplayer, you really can't go wrong. Any fan of action games or anyone who wants a challenge could do much worse than Red Dog, and it certainly warrants a rental for those who aren't sure if it's the game for them. There's enough explosive action in here for many hours of gameplay.

IGN (Nov 07, 2000)
Red Dog isn't a simple killing spree; with its complex control scheme and crazy level design, I can see a lot of players giving up on this game because of the high learning curve on the learning to drive this crazy machine. And the fact that the visuals aren't mind-blowing doesn't help, either. However, if you can master the driving techniques, coordinate your driving and shooting accuracy, and look past a few dated visuals, Red Dog can be a lot of fun, especially in multi-player modes. Because, once you get the hang of this thing, sometimes there's nothing better than the smell of napalm in the morning.

Crave has once again provided the Dreamcast with another enjoyable game. With clean graphics, a rock solid framerate and a four player multiplayer mode that adds to the replayability of the game, Red Dog definitely is worth the price of admission. This title definitely earns a joystick up from this reviewer.

Vehicular combat fans should appreciate Red Dog for its intriguing weapon scheme and gorgeous graphics. The weapons are what hooked me – you have one main cannon that can be powered up for short periods, several secondary weapons you acquire throughout the game, and a defense shield that goes up in front of your turret. The missions also demonstrate enough variety and invention to lift Red Dog out of the throng of auto-destructive knock-offs. If you discount the fact that you’re piloting a vehicle, Red Dog is really more of a traditional action game – and a good one at that.

Mega Fun (Mar, 2000)
Red Dog ist glücklicherweise mal wieder ein DC-Titel, der sich ein wenig von der hochwertigen Konkurrenz abhebt. Ein solches Shoot ‘em Up suchte man bislang auf dem Dreamcast vergeblich. Trotzdem reißt es mich nicht vom Hocker. Der normale Einzelspieler-Modus ist auf Dauer einfach zu trist. Es fehlen mir neue Herausforderungen und richtige Rätsel. Red Dog kann dafür allerdings kräftig beim Multiplayer-Modus abräumen. Stecken drei oder vier Pads gleichzeitig im Dreamcast, geht‘s richtig ab! Man fühlt sich teilweise an alte Ego-Shooter-Deathmatches erinnert, wenn auch nicht so blutig. Unterm Strich ist Red Dog für Action- und Multi-Fans durchaus eine Überlegung und einen Hunderter wert.

Power Unlimited (Jul, 2000)
Het is steeds meer van hetzelfde in deze game en de lastige bediening werkt ook al niet mee aan de speelbaarheid en het gameplezier.

As it stands, it may seem as if Red Dog isn't worth your gaming dollar. If you're only in it for the single-player experience, such a conclusion is certainly warranted. However, if you're the kind of person who loves challenging tank games or happens to have a few trigger-happy friends, the game takes on a life of its own. It's by no means a Quake III Arena, but fans of big explosions and warfare should be pleased. In many ways, the game is worth playing just for its mild, albeit constant, similarities to Star Fox.

Enligt min mening är Red Dogs starkaste kort flerspelarläget, som är en blandning mellan Twisted Metal och Super Mario Kart. Klart roligast är det mycket originella inslaget King of the Hill som förgyller det annars lite enahanda spelet som Jez San och hans kollegor på Argonaut kunde ha arbetat lite mer med.

Red Dog possède une technique un peu insuffisante pour prétendre tenir un rôle de ténor dans votre gd-thèque. Il propose de l’action à outrance, avec un gameplay vite cerné, dans une jouabilité par trop imprécise. Le mode quatre joueurs pourra peut-être rattraper l’affaire.

The Video Game Critic (Sep 12, 2005)
Red Dog is a very challenging game with no difficulty options, and just surviving the first stage can require several attempts. A multi-player split-screen mode is included, best described by my friend Scott as "just like Twisted Metal, only without the fun". Red Dog is not a grade "A" Dreamcast title by any stretch, but if you're in the mood to inflict some damage, it serves its purpose.
