Mean Machines (Jan, 1992)
Ramparts was one of the few really original arcade games of last year, and I played it a lot. It's a simple, but very challenging game with plenty of neat touches to keep you on your toes. How does this Master System version compare? Well, it's excellent! All the features of the arcade game have been packed in, and there's a stiff challenge on offer on the highest difficulty setting. The graphics and sound aren't anything to write home about (the ones on the arcade original were pretty pathetic too), but in the playability stakes Ramparts is superb, offering an entertaining, addictive and long-lasting challenge (especially with two players) which should be checked out.

A truly addictive game that is simple really; build a castle, decide where you want your cannons and then decimate your enemy!
Sega Force (UK) (Jan, 1992)
A good conversion and very playable.

Sans être vraiment mauvaise, la réalisation sur Master System est souffreteuse. On s'alarme de certaines lenteurs, en particulier avec les calculs de surface où la machine a tendance à ramer (voire geler, dans certains cas extrêmes). Un ordinateur qui a des difficultés de calcul, on aura tout vu ! Mais en même temps, rien ne dérange vraiment, ni le graphisme, ni l'animation, ni le son (il y en a deux: les canons et la fanfare !), ni la prise en mains. Tout est à la limite du tolérable, juste ce qu'il faut pour ne pas nuire au gameplay. L'essentiel est de pouvoir ériger ses murs, planter ses canons et couler les navires ennemis. Qui rigole maintenant ?? Bien à l'abri dans votre château (petit mais) fort, c'est vous !

With some appropriate music and some graphical improvements this game could have been even better, but as it is it’s a very enjoyable strategy game. With the option of one and two player modes, as well as the various difficulty levels for one player games this one should keep fans (and even non-fans) of strategy games occupied for a while, if at least just to beat your high score!
Game Zone Magazine (Jan, 1992)
A faithful conversion of an imaginative game. If there had only been a little more variety it might have been really special. As it stands, it's fun but rather short-lived.

As it is Rampart on the Master System is a great game, it's the type of product that is easy to forget about but hard to put down once you've started playing. It offers a good mixture of action and puzzle solving, and the two player mode is well worth the price of admission. It's not perfect but Rampart on the Master System is well for tracking down if you're a fan of its arcade action.
Video Games (Aug, 1992)
Grafisch schlägt die Master System Version der Burgenballerei am ehesten nach der NES Variante - die rampart typische Sprachausgabe fehlt jedoch. Das Fadenkreuz bewegt sich im Verteidigungsfall noch langsamer, als auf dem Lynx. Rutscht der Place Cannons-Balken von oben nach unten über das Bild, wird das Szenario sogar ausgeblendet. Außerdem gibtÄs Rechenzeitprobleme: Habt Ihr ein Gebiet umzäunt, müßt Ihr teilweise sekundenlang auf die Anerkennung des Territoriums warten. Sind die einzelnen Nachteile der Master-System Variante von Rampart für sich nicht so schlimm, addieren sie sich doch zu einer schlechteren Spielbarkeit.
Sega Power (1993)
A puzzle and arcade mixture in which you must build walls, claim land, shoot ships and then, of course, stop your opponent from doing the same.
