Computer and Video Games (CVG) (Nov, 1993)
Why is that whenever mankind is at stake, there's only one hero available? Robo Vs Terminator captures images from both films, while following the plot of Frank Miller's awesome comic range. The result is a stomp in to the land of eight-way scrolling blast-'em-ups. There are 12 tricky levels, but the action will seem overwhelmingly long before that. Thankfully, passwords prevent the whole thing from becoming boringly frustrating, because if you stick with this game you'll be rewarded by the later levels. This is quality platform carnage.
The Video Game Critic (Jul 02, 2006)
Enemy projectiles move very slowly (almost comically so), so even if you can't shoot them down, you can usually outrun them. You'll blast your way through a construction site, a research facility, an abandoned building, a Terminator factory, and a downtown area with a killer skyline. Breaking up the monotony is a first-person shooting sequence not unlike the sandspeeder stage in Super Star Wars (SNES, 1992). For bosses you'll face a massive terminator "tank" and an amazing hologram face composed of electrical charges. The game's ominous, bass-heavy soundtrack is appropraite but not particularly memorable. Robocop Vs. Terminator's main flaw is the preponderance of cheap hits, including falling girders at the construction site and twirly-bird things that emerge from the floors of the factory stage. Robocop Vs. Terminator is a terrific way to let off some steam, and a handy four-letter password lets you save your progress.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) (Feb, 1994)
Nice try, but this just doesn't happen for me. The blood, of course, is gone and the Mode 7 sequence is very slow and choppy. The comic book-esque cinema sequences are innovative and new, but the intensity isn't there.
