  1. While some classic arcade games (like old episodes of the "Thundercats" cartoon) are more fit for reminiscence than actual play, Time Pilot proves that what was mind-blowingly awesome back in the day can still detonate brains just as well now.

    Seriously, it really makes you feel like you're back in the arcades, listening to bad 80's music in a darkened coin-operated world with your friends watching you play as you take on the competition — it's amazing and truly brings back an experience I haven't felt in years.
  3. Honestly, it's "Asteroids" with prettier, smarter rocks...and a hell of a lot more adrenaline. [Nov. 2006, p.78]
  4. 65
    A pretty good job porting the game, but if you don't get into this game for the sake of make a run at the top of the leaderboard, or if you're not a shooter aficionado, you're probably not going to be to enthralled by this game.
  5. It's good fun while it lasts. [Issue 12, p.116]
  6. Time Pilot was a decent game back in the day, but when it’s compared to stuff like Pac- Man and Galaga, it doesn’t have much in the way of legs.
  7. Aged, dated, decrepit and repetitive! [Nov 2006, p.107]

    Finally! A Live Arcade game from the old arcade days that retains all of the tight gameplay of the original, while adding some new twists to keep things fresh. Time Pilot is also tailor-made for the 360's analog stick, with a feel as close to the original coin-op as I've played outside an arcade. I'm knocking it 2 points because the Enhanced mode's graphics actually make the game more difficult, due to the cluttered background. Even so... nicely done, Digital Eclipse! Bandai Namco, are you taking notes? Expand
