    Jetpac Refuelled is fundamentally flawed

    Jetpac was originally released for the ZX Spectrum back in 1983 which was developed by "Ultimate: Play The Game" which eventually became Rare. With Jetpac Refuelled, the original game is packaged alongside a new rebooted... Read Full Review

    Long and difficult - but fun

    I have always been a fan of re-made classic games so I opted in immediately when I saw Jetpac coming onto arcade. I downloaded the demo and had a decent time (fairly short and easy). After getting the full version, th... Read Full Review

    Buiding spaceships and killing aliens all while cruisin on my Jetpac.

    Jetpac is a revisioned version of the 1983 classic. Not only does this game include the new, beautfiul version of Jetpac, but it also includes the original arcade version. Or as we like to call it, the "retro" ... Read Full Review

    Pretty bland game that can be fun for a little while.

    I have no idea why I bought this game, but I really wish there was some sort of digital return or exchange policy for the 360. The game gets extremely repetitive and extremely hard very fast. The improved version does ... Read Full Review

    Thank god for progress.

    I'm showing my age here. I remember buying this game on the Spectrum when it first came out. Back then, with a massive 16k of memory to code with, this was the dogs danglies, colourful, simple and addictive. The relea... Read Full Review

    JetPac plays as well as it ever did, and the HD remix is both visual pleasing and faithful to the original.

    Pros: It’s JetPac!; excellent remix version; fun and frantic gameplay; great sounds, graphics Cons: difficult to make out enemies on some levels; weak multiplayer; hard Achievements Rating: Hard I still own a ZX... Read Full Review

    with Jetpac Refuelled you get a lot of game for only 400 points.

    This time the boys on Live Arcade got the old school done the way we've wanted it since the beginning, with Jetpac Refueled you get the original versian and a new and very much improved revamp of the classic. I wont tel... Read Full Review

    Loved this game in 1983, and I love it today.

    Now, where's "Underwurlde!" Ultimate changed mine and many other school boys lives in the 80's, all thanks to the ZX Spectrum 16k. What a great partnership. It's hard to forget the ZX Spectrum and it's host... Read Full Review
