Reasumując, Rescue Mission na Sega Master System mimo upływu lat jak większość gier pistoletowych trzyma się świetnie, dając sporo frajdy. Warto usiąść i postrzelać choćby w przerwie na kawę, bo nawet w ciągu tych dziesięciu minut możemy zestrzelić parę setek jednostek nieprzyjaciela, co nie - nie ukrywajmy – jest bardzo satysfakcjonujące. Muzyki na CD sobie nie wypalimy, ale możemy ją pięknie zagłuszyć efektami dźwiękowymi. Warto wspomnieć, że gra jak niektóre inne pozycje, nie daje możliwości zamiany Light Phasera na pada,. Spokojnie mogę polecić ten tytuł fanom gatunku i tym chcącym sprawdzić możliwości konkurenta Nintendowego Zappera.
After a while, you have to wonder why the enemy keeps trying so hard to stop just a few hostages. At some point, after 300 or so of their troops have been slaughtered, you would think they would back off. Better yet, why are they so content to shoot the one escaping, and not the one shooting them? Strangely, this all seems logical while you're playing. That's a sign you're hooked, and that's the best compliment you can give to a game this simple.
Having your finger on the trigger and the lives of your chums in your hands can be great fun. It's a real shame that the game's too easy to be anything like a lasting challenge. Even on the hardest stage it shouldn't take too long to master. Terrific fun that's short-lived.
I must say that I enjoyed playing Rescue Mission very much - it's a fast and furious game which requires a very high level of sustained concentration to blast the myriad of enemy troops. I felt exhausted after one session! The appeal might wear of after a while - the game does get a bit repetitive - but it's by far the best Light Phaser game around.
Rescue Mission is fun to play for short periods at a time. The concept is good but it doesn't make complete sense. If the enemy really wanted to stop you they could just destroy some of the railroad tracks.
Retrogaming History (Mar 14, 2008)
Rescue Mission in alcuni casi era venduto con la console e faceva coppia con Alex Kidd in Miracle World. Lo definirei un buon prodotto per la "pistola" del Master System con un unico difetto. Il suo problema non si trova nella giocabilità o nella realizzazione tecnica ma nella scarsa durata. Certo lo si può rigiocare quante volte si vuole ma è innegabile che per finirlo non ci voglia molto tempo. Ad ogni modo questo titolo è un classico e possiede un fascino del tutto particolare.
Power Play (Dec, 1988)
Wenn man von der überharten Handlung absieht, bleibt eine etwas überdurchschnittliche Ballerei, die so lange Spaß macht, bis man alle Levels gesehen hat. Die Grafik ist farbenfroh und gut gezeichnet. Musikalisch hat Rescue Mission allerdings weit weniger Qualität zu bieten. Wie gewohnt quält sich eine langweilige Melodie aus dem Lautsprecher des heimischen Fernsehapparates heraus. Danach flaut die Motivation gewaltig ab.

Nesta missão de salvamento, você dá cobertura a um médico que vai socorrer soldados feridos em campo inimigo. O importante, aqui, é conhecer bem o campo de batalha e as características de cada médico.
The Video Game Critic (Jan 25, 2009)
All in all, Rescue Mission is a thoroughly forgettable shooter that will elicit yawns from even the most ardent light gun fans. Note: Having trouble getting your light gun to work? Crank up the brightness of your TV screen.
