Revolution X is a perfect translation of the arcade game. All the levels are here, all the music is here and the graphics are virtually the same as the coin-op. Trouble is, the game itself is boring to the max. The levels are long and challenging, but they're repetitive as hell and the shooting patterns are the same throughout the entire game. Shoot Power Rangers, pick up power-ups, shoot some more Power Rangers, kill boss, shoot Level 2 Power Rangers...it goes on and on. Thanks Acclaim, but I think i'll pass.

Unless your a die-hard Aerosmith rocker, the tunes won't be anything but too loud. This is T2 for glam-rock fans. If you like Aerosmith and you fancy yourself a Terminator, then gun it. If not, rent it.

Never before have I played such a pitifully poor game. There is almost no skill or brain power required, and it’s the same in two player mode. Fans of Aerosmith and shoot-’em-ups alike, please, do not even think of buying this, if only for the sake of your sanity and wallet. Rev X is nothing more than a straightforward shoot-’em-up with FMV bits, but there are no special effects, little challenge, nil variation, and this equals to zilch gameplay. Steer well clear as this is the dark side of PlayStation software.
Entertainment Weekly (Feb 09, 1996)
Revolution X, a misbegotten shoot-'em-up starring Aerosmith (''America's premier rock band,'' the box proclaims), pulls off the unenviable trick of being both gruesomely violent and numbingly boring.
Mega Fun (May, 1996)
Das gleiche sinnlose, dumpfe Shoot ‘em Up. wie auch auf dem Saturn. Die Grafik ist ein klein wenig sauberer ausgefallen, kann aber auch in keinster Weise überzeugen. Die Bedienung gibt sich als nicht so schwammig, und somit man schon mal einen Treffen landen. Aber sorry, das Game ist viel zu kurz und langweilig, um daran Gefallen finden zu können.
IGN (Nov 25, 1996)
The graphics are bad, even for 16-bit standards. Even when Aerosmith aren't playing the music is awful. I really can't stress enough how bad this game is. Maybe ten or twenty years from now, people will look back on Revolution X and compare it to some of the really bad 2600 games that everybody loves today. You know, nostalgia and cheesiness and all that. Then again, maybe not.
