  1. Emperor's Testament offers plenty of new missions to keep you busy, although the overall experience is practically identical to that of its predecessor.
  2. It’s more of the same thing. If you just can’t get enough of Perimeter, then here’s some more of it to feed your hunger. If you’re looking for an update to the gameplay, units, or features, you should wait to see if a Perimeter 2 is released sometime down the road.
  3. PC Zone UK
    The admirably innovative gameplay still feels like it's from Mars. [Feb 2007, p.80]
  4. An expansion pack that offers nothing new or innovative to the quirky and innovative original. A decent pick for those who just couldn’t get enough of Perimeter, but those unfamiliar with the original might be in for more than they can handle.
  5. With that first release having had such a limited audience, there’s no doubt that what is on offer here will seem fresh and innovative to some of those who pick up what is a decent and lengthy expansion.
  6. PC Gamer
    Another beef: no tutorial levels, which would have been a good idea, given the cryptic story. [Holiday 2006, p.78]
  7. Unique and fresh strategic approach, but it lacks a compelling creamy plot centre that would make Perimeter an instant classic.
  8. Computer Games Magazine
    The game certainly looks interesting in pictures, and the soundtrack is psychedelically soothing. All it's missing is entertaining play. [Dec. 2006, p.74]
