Zero (Jan, 1990)
Spellcaster is one of the best games available on the Master System at the moment. That's not immediately obvious until you get some of the action sequences and then, boy does it hit you. There are lots of clever twists and turns in the plot which means there's never a dull moment. These become graphically more exciting the longer you play.
The adventure bits feel like a set sequence you're being led through, which might be seen as a limitation by you veteran adventurers, but I wasn't bothered by it at all, because there's no aimless wandering about, getting lost or fumbling around with commands to slow the plot down.
Joystick (French) (Feb, 1990)
Le graphisme est bon, mais l'animation des personnages reste lente, ce qui occulte un peu l'intérêt de ce jeu. Il n'en demeure pas moins que SpellCaster est un jeu sympathique, qui aurait gagné en qualité si l'animation avait été plus rapide. Dommage....
Mastering the use of the spells and weapons makes for a good tough challenge. Ultimately Spellmaster is limited by its finite plot. Once you have done it you are unlikely to plug it in again. It provides a fun challenge whilst it lasts though. Spellcaster is more of an arcade game with adventure style graphical rewards between levels than a pure RPG. Its arcade screens are tough and graphically satisfying with the added curiosity of the mystery. A competent game.
Spell Caster is Sega's Simon Quest. It's not a conventional RPG, but it does have some of the best action/adventure features to appear in a Master System game. Full screen text-screens are also incorporated into the play to move the game along. A good addition to the Sega library!

O jovem Kane foi chamado à presença de Daikak, seu mestre. O movito: o Templo Enriku fora atacado e destruído. E este foi apenas o último de muitos outros ataques. Kane deve descobrir quem está por trás disto e acabar com sua malígna intenção. Para isto, deve procurar pistas a cada final de fase, escolhendo as opções da tela.
Power Play (Aug, 1989)
Spellcaster entpuppt sich als unterdurchschnittliches Action-Adventure Die Grafik und der Sound sind zwar ganz ordentlich, dafür hapert es bei der Spielbarkeit ganz schön. Ich hasse Situationen, in denen der Spielablauf mehr von Glück als vom Geschick abhängt. Zudem sehen sich die einzelnen Levels so ähnlich, daß schnell Langeweile aufkommt. Laßt Spellcaster im Regal verschimmeln, es ist nicht schade drum. 129 Mark für so ein Mager-Modul - ganz schön dreist.
