A near exact match to the original coin-op... It's good, but the timing needs help. [8 out of 10]

The whole daring adventure is a riotous romp through colorful levels of mayhem. The one drawback is the replay value is easily diminished. [8 out of 10]

The CD-i version is the best version on any platform. On the down side, the CD access time is a nuisance. [7 out of 10]

Most versions of the game played really bad, but this one was more bearable. [7 out of 10]

TOTAL REVIEW SCORE for CD-i version: 7.5 out of 10        (Note: The 3DO version received a score of 7 out of 10)
