  1. If you are jaded by more exciting modern games, this will definitely bore you. Otherwise, it's a great makeover of one of the classically addictive games.
  2. Not a game you'll play for hours on end, but good fun for short amounts of time.
  3. The only possible "don’t-buy" concern in Missile Command is that, like fellow old-school, arcade quarter munchers "Robotron" and "Defender", it’s relentlessly, almost brutally difficult...You will find some nice multiplayer action though, and at five bucks, this is a no-brainer.
  4. This Missile Command is off target.
  5. Cheap, cheerful, timeless fun, and ultimately short-lived - but isn't that the whole point?
  6. There's not actually that much to do here. [Sept 2007, p.108]
  7. It's the original version with an awful new one tacked on. This is the very definition of cash-in.
