Zeitgeist review

GameFan Magazine (1996): "Acclaim made the wrong decision in bringing Taito's shooter o' pain to America. In one fell swoop, Jupiter Strike manges to: A) approach the ear's pain tolerance ever heard. B) anger the gamer with "damn this is hard" gameplay balance and limited continue and C) induce laughter with cheesy explosions, grossly overdone FMV and sloppy play control. The polygon graphics are decent and the pop-up has been kept to a minimum, but even that is not enough to save this sinking ship. I'll pass."
