Overall, Xybots is a great title for the Lynx, and one of the easiest and cheapest titles to get. Don't let it slip by you!
Game Zero (Sep, 1992)
This is an awesome game. Tengen did a great job with this game. I like the limited view you have around corners and the different enemies stalking through the endless corridors. The graphics are stunning and make you feel like you're running through the passages blasting the xybots into oblivion. The music and sound effects are pretty good. The game control is perfect. This game will last you a long time. This is a must-buy for Lynx owners.

Xybots is a very unique game and it does a great job of utilising the handheld's strengths while creating a highly playable experience. Unlike some other titles on the Lynx (namely Batman Returns) it has solid gameplay to back up its flashy visuals and there's also tons of depth to keep you coming back for more.
Video Games (Feb, 1992)
Obwohl der 3-D-Effekt nicht überragend ist, entsteht in den einzelnen Levels eine prima Science-Fiction-Atmosphäre, Spannung und (selten) eine Spur von Hektik. Da zusätzlich einige Zwischensequenzen, Gags und die gelungene Hintergrundmusik des Automaten übernommen wurden, kauft man mit “Xybots“ ein wirklich sauber produziertes Modul mit originellem Spielhintergrund. Die Elemente “Laser-Gefechte“, “Teleporter“ und “3-D-Umgebung“ muß man jedoch mögen, um Spaß an Xybots zu haben. Ansonsten: ein prima Lynx-Spiel.
Power Play (Feb, 1992)
Das schmissige 3-D-Action-Labyrinth-Gemetzel wurde prima fürs Lynx umgesetzt. Alle Spielelemente haben überlebt und garantieren für eine intelligente, spannende und durchdachte Alien-Abwehr.
Play Time (Mar, 1992)
Die geglückte 3D-Darstellung (ohne Tutti-Frutti-Brille) sowie das reichhaltige Extrafunktionsarsenal, machen XYBOTS durchaus spielenswert, wenngleich die einfallslosen Wandmuster und Farben ebenso nervend, wie monoton wirken, und ein Level wie das andere aussehen lassen.
Not one of my favorite Lynx carts.

Xybots won't bowl you over with its generic gameplay, but Lynx fans looking for some simple shooting action will find plenty to like.
Xybots is a dull game because although it has all the elements necessary for success, it never even attempts to rise above mediocrity. It has a great 3D world that could have worked out wonderfully, but in practice the world is lame and boring because no effort was expended to make the stages or enemies look interesting. It has the potential to be a really good 3D shooter, but there are very few enemy designs, and the ones that are in the game are uninspired and placed few and far between. As a result, the gameplay, which could have been an exciting fragfest, becomes a ho-hum walk and shoot exercise.
