GamePro (US) (Nov, 1991)
Fortified Zone whips up a well-balanced mix of strategy and shoot-em-up action. The graphics are highly detailed, and the 3/4 view puts some pop in the perspective. The sound effects are good and the various soundtracks are catchy. The only complaint is that there should be more levels. Fortified Zone is worth invading.

Now this is sure to be a sleeper hit if I ever played one. Fortified Zone takes Metal Gear and makes it fun! No level is too large or too small, no enemy too strong or weak. It was truly a fun Gameboy game. How about that? I never thought I'd play two cool Gameboy games in one issue!

Fortified Zone Àr för Game Boy vad Metal Gear Àr för NES. AgentÀventyr som krÀver lokalsinne. Absolut roligast om man Àr tvÄ spelare samtidigt. Ett av de fÄ spel dÀr man ska hjÀlpas Ät istÀllet för att döda varandra. Det gillar vi! Ytterligare ett bra Game Boy-spel den hÀr mÄnaden alltsÄ!

Jaleco's Fortified Zone brings world of secret agents and heroics to your Game Boy!

A great idea which is playable right from the start. However it doesn't take long before the faults start to show and it becomes frustrating.

Video Games (Sep, 1991)
Inhaltlich ist Fortified Zone wie alle Söldnerspiele reichlich bescheuert, spielerisch aber um einiges besser. Das Vorbild war “Rambo“; aufgrund der begrenzten Hardware wurde jedoch eine eigenstĂ€ndige Geschichte daraus. Auch wenn der kleine Bildschirm nicht die Flugbahn jedes Geschosses verrĂ€t, gefĂ€llt mir die Grafik gut. Der Sound ebenfalls; wer auf das Gepiepse steht, kann sich im abgedrehtesten SoundmenĂŒ der Game-Boy-Geschichte davon ĂŒberzeugen. Ein kameradschaftliches Schulterklopfen auch fĂŒr originelle End- und Zwischengegner.

Play Time (Apr, 1992)
An dem langweiligen Spielgeschehen Ă€ndert ein angekoppelter zweiter Game Boy natĂŒrlich wenig. Mag sein, daß der ein oder andere Action-Adventurefreak nach einer lĂ€ngeren Eingewöhnungsphase Gefallen an “Fortified Zone“ finden kann - ich kann mich mit diesem Modul jedenfalls nicht sonderlich anfreunden.
