  1. Last Ninja II
  2. Dark Side
  3. Batman
  4. R-Type


Containing a mixture of shooting, adventuring and fighting. Dark Force is a powerful package of high quality games. Last Ninja II is great, R-Type is one of the best ever Spectrum shoot-'em-ups, Batman (Again, not the game of the film) is brill and Dark Side is an engrossing and atmospheric 3D arcade adventure. 84%


R-Type is a bit wobbly on the Amstrad but Dark Side, Batman and Last Ninja II are all great, making this a good value for money compilation which will keep you glued to your Amstrad. 81%


A great compilation, let down only by the slow and rather cumbersome Dark Side. There's hours and hours of play in this one. 81%
