The ZX Spectrum version of The Great Escape was placed at number 23 in the Your Sinclair official top 100, after originally being awarded 9 out of 10 in that magazine's January 1987 issue. Both the tense atmosphere and the protagonists 'automatic daily routine' were highlighted as excellent features.

The only "official" entry to the camp is by a narrow road through the gatehouse and anyone passing through this must be carrying the correct papers.
