Raze (Apr, 1991)
Good clean fun? No! Mindless violence on a scale rarely seen since the Harrod's china department sale. Yup, definitely one for those of you with a latent animal instinct.
Génération 4 (Feb, 1991)
Un jeu amusant, à la stratégie primaire mais assez captivant. Et à quatre joueurs, ce doit être du délire !
D’un point de vue technique, c’est une excellente conversion. L’écran de la Lynx étant beaucoup plus petit que celui d’une borne, l’aire de jeu est zoomée et dotée d’un scrolling horizontal des plus fluide. Quant à la musique, elle brille par sa discrétion. Le véritable intérêt de Rampage réside dans son mode multi-joueurs (jusqu’à quatre !) qui promet des parties endiablées. En effet, il est possible de frapper ses « co-équipiers ». Quelle stratégie faut-il donc adopter pour survivre? Alliance ou chacun pour sa peau ?
GamePro (US) (Feb, 1991)
Rampage takes full advantage of the Lynx's graphic capabilities and looks almost as good as its arcade big brother. The characters are large, colorful, and well-drawn, and additional touches such as flashing neon pizza signs and terrified citizens running down the city streets are a visual delight! Gameplay is rather limited; however, you just smash through level after level of the same buildings. But, sometimes a mindless, destructive wreckfest is the perfect change of pace from the usual shoot-em-ups and kung fu carts. Rampage is a wreckin' good time!
IGN (Feb 11, 2008)
Rampage for Lynx doesn't solve all of the arcade game's problems. This is still a repetitive game, driven by an escapist fantasy and a dark sense of humor. But in breaking away from a straight conversion, Atari's take manages to hold up better than the others. If you never liked Rampage, the Lynx version won't make you a believer, but if you're looking to relive your old memories with an added layer of depth, this is the way to do it.
Ein wahres Zerstörertrauma tritt beim Spielen von Rampage ein, das könnt Ihr mir glauben. Und dazu tragen nicht zuletzt die motivationsfördernden Soundeffekte bei, sondern auch die sehr gute Grafik und Animation der Sprites. Ein Game also, das nicht nur durch den Vier- Spieler-Modus verdammt viel Spaß macht.
Even with the obvious problems, this version is a decent on-the-go way to play. It has a great sense of humor, especially with the pre-stage newspaper clippings. Of course, this is still Rampage, and fans will be happy to have this game with them in portable form. This is the best, and only, way to do that.
ST Format (Dec, 1992)
Rampage isn't that much cop, though you're likely to find it's alright - but nothing more - for a while. The two-player version is slightly more amusing, but it's not worth £30. Spend your money on Blue Lightning instead.
neXGam (2004)
Rampage ist ein Klassiker und durchaus kein schlechtes Spiel, aber für mehr als mal eben eine 15-minütige Runde taugt es einfach nicht. Da ändert auch Larry die Laborratte, ein neues, exklusives Monster nichts daran. Fans des Arcade Vorbilds können trotzdem zugreifen!
Up to four ComLynxed players take control of giant mutants in this conversion of the Bally-Midway skyscraper-smashing coin-op. The graphics are spot-on throughout, but there just isn't that much to the gameplay, and anyone but fans of the original will find demolishing building after building a mile tedious.
Power Play (Mar, 1991)
Die Lynx-Version dieses Zerstörungsspiels kommt sowohl grafisch als auch spielerisch dem Automatenvorbild angenehm nahe; der Sound ist hübsch, die Hintergrundmelodien wechseln von Level zu Level. Am etwas schlappen (und nicht gerade zeitlosem) Spielprinzip ändert sich dadurch freilich nicht viel.
Defunct Games (Oct 24, 2004)
The game does succeed when you work in the four-player mode. It's only then that the game is worth any play at all. So if you've got some friends to play this with pick it up ... but if you are looking for a classic game with tons of replay for the Lynx, make sure you're first choice is Robotron!
