    Such ambition hasn’t been seen on the PC in God knows how long and Atari has landed itself an absolute classic here. A must-have - no questions asked. [July 2005, p.100]
  2. Boiling Point is an amazing piece of work, but is like a piece of art that will never be finished. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it, despite its flaws, as it is the very definition of freeform adventuring.

    Simultaneously fascinating and flawed, it's the definition of high maintenance. [July 2005, p.86]
  4. Put it like this: This is probably one of the most enjoyable piece of early-Beta code that I've ever played. You want to damn Atari for releasing it like this. However, you also want to hail them for spending money on something of Boiling Point's ambition rather than the safe option.

    There is no middle ground with Boiling Point: Road To Hell, you'll either look past it's flaws and love the expansive, open-ended adventure game beneath, or hate it because of its numerous technical faults, poor performance and general rushed feel.
  6. Raw and addictive, but lacks the polish to make it stand out in a niche market.

    A great idea poorly executed, Boiling Point turned me off almost immediately with its stodgy interface, nasty character animations, badA great idea poorly executed, Boiling Point turned me off almost immediately with its stodgy interface, nasty character animations, bad graphics, textures and awful voice-acting.
