Assassin (video Game) - Reception


Assassin has received high ratings. The One Amiga rated the game 92%, praising all areas of the game. In particular the sound effects. In the review, the reviewer noted that the sound effects were "some of the most imaginative and atmospheric I've ever heard". The only criticism in he review was that some of the backgrounds seemed empty. The review from Amiga Power noted the similarities of the game to Strider and Turrican, but overall rated the game highly at 89%. Again, the atmosphere of the game was praised, as were the graphics and animation. CU Amiga scored the game 89% and noted the size of the game maps. There are over 1500 screens over the five levels. The magazine said this was one of the games most striking features. Despite the critical acclaim, Martyn Brown, co-founder of Team 17 considers Assassin to be Team 17's least successful game. He attributes this to limited appeal.

The Assassin: Special Edition re-release was seen as an unnecessary release and even a backwards step as various gameplay elements were removed. Amiga Power gave the game a lower rating of 79%, but still praised most of it.

Famous quotes containing the word reception:

    But in the reception of metaphysical formula, all depends, as regards their actual and ulterior result, on the pre-existent qualities of that soil of human nature into which they fall—the company they find already present there, on their admission into the house of thought.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)

    Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody’s face but their own; which is the chief reason for that kind of reception it meets in the world, and that so very few are offended with it.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    I gave a speech in Omaha. After the speech I went to a reception elsewhere in town. A sweet old lady came up to me, put her gloved hand in mine, and said, “I hear you spoke here tonight.” “Oh, it was nothing,” I replied modestly. “Yes,” the little old lady nodded, “that’s what I heard.”
    Gerald R. Ford (b. 1913)
