Jeff Minter has been behind the game's previous sequels or re releases (Tempest 2000 in '94, Tempest 3000 in 2000) and it is a true rendition of the Tempest I grew up with. However, despite porting it over to the newer operational systems, I don't feel that there was enough of a difference from previous versions to warrant a release at this price point.

I love Tempest. I love Tempest 2000. I even love TxK on the PS Vita. And if I’m wearing my Tempest fan hat and badge, I love Tempest 4000.

Tempest 4000 is the greatest version of an arcade classic and is absolutely worth your time. If you’re into old-school games, you owe it to yourself to pick it up. Even if you’re not, 4000 could surprise you. As your dad would say, ‘get some culture in ya’.

Tempest 4000's time-tested gameplay still rings true, but some of the visual and design elements in this release add some unintended challenge. For what is ultimately an updated quarter-muncher, it has a steep price, but those looking to relive the past in 4K could do far worse than this title.

Tempest 4000 then, is a great game. But if you want it, you're going to have to part with more cash than you probably expected to.

Tempest 4000 is a fun and fast-paced game that does everything previous entries in the series did, and then some. It will certainly appeal to fans of the previous releases from ages past, but it's not going to appeal to all players due to its considerable challenge, as well as its art style and very colorful presentation, since it might make some of you feel a bit overwhelmed.

Trippy, harsh, explosive and bizarre. This is everything you would want in a Tempest sequel, provided you want one at all.
