Crash! (Dec, 1988)
A great conversion of the popular coin-op which couldn’t be bettered
The tricks that you discover after you have played Op - Wolf a good few times, like shooting the birds, and the pig that scampers on to pick up more ammo. It is this kind of attention to details that makes for a good coin-op conversion irrespective of the graphical capabilities of the computer you are playing the game on.
The graphics are all in monochrome (though the colour changes for each stage) so it can be tough to see the baddies sometimes. The game loads in one go on 128K machines but is multi-load on 48K machines. You'll find yourself playing this for a long time to come - even if you manage to complete it you'll find yourself coming back whenever you feel the urge to blast away at some baddies.
An army of large, bold characters rampage through the levels with as much detail as the arcade original. Although things become confusing when the screen gets crowded, distant soldiers inevitably lose some of their detail. However, the sheer speed and ferocious action over-rules any minor quibbles to be found in this excellent coin-op conversion.

Operation Wolf ne fera certainement pas office de démonstration technique pour le ZX Spectrum: on sent bien que la machine de Sinclair n’a pas été poussée dans ses derniers retranchements. Cela n’empêche nullement de passer un bon moment grâce à un titre nerveux, fluide et relativement jouable, ce qui est bien l’essentiel.
