I loved the old LD game, and this one is a perfect match. After I beat it several times, I got a little tired of it. [9 out of 10]

Space Ace is a blast to play and is truly faithful to the original coin-op. Perfect translation. [8 out of 10]

Space Ace comes out true to the arcade version in every way. The only problem is the game is a little easier with a larger margin of error to make your moves. [7 out of 10]

It sure brings back memories of the quarter-blowing arcade days... Let's face it - the game has very little replay value and is more exciting to look at than to play. [7 out of 10]

TOTAL REVIEW SCORE for CD-i version: 7.75 out of 10
