Amiga Power
Nothing new - and if you'd showed it to me five years ago I'd have said much the same thing - but it's as absorbing as these big American graphical adventure quest games always are.
Amiga Joker
Die endlosen Nachladezeiten sind wirklich eine Frechheit. Zudem ist das Programm höllisch langsam, beispielsweise folgt jedesmal eine längere Zwangspause, wenn der Held ein paar Schritte auf dem Screen machen soll. Zusammen mit der elenden Diskettenwechselei ist das sehr, sehr ärgerlich, zumal Altered Destiny ansonsten ein bildschönes Spiel wäre! Die Grafiken können stellenweise sogar "Monkey Island" Konkurrenz machen (sie wurden für die Amiga-Version extra mit 32 Farben neu gezeichnet, am PC waren es nur 16), der Soundtrack umfaßt stolze 25 Musikstücke, die Maussteuerung funktioniert ziemlich genauso wie bei den Sierra-Adventures, und die Packung quillt über vor lauter Begleitmaterial (Poster, Hintbook, deutsche Anleitung, englisches "Tagebuch"). Aber wie gesagt: Ohne Festplatte braucht man gar nicht erst lange über dieses Adventure nachzudenken...

But everything is just so painstakingly slow, you will be sick to bleedin' death of bloody Barrett long before coming anywhere close to realising the potential that the story may have to offer. Disk accessing is somewhat sluggish (to say the least) and moving PJ about the playing area takes forever. Compare Altered Destiny to The Secret Of Monkey Island and PJ's deficiencies are forced even further home. Whereas Guy Thistlebrush merely needed to be aimed in the right direction, PJ however, has to be painfully inched pixel by pixel around the screen. Monkey Island kept the pace up, Altered Destiny shoots itself in the foot.
Jag spelade igenom 95 procent av Altered Destiny och fastnade och slutade. Det var inte värt att avsluta spelet. Faktum är att jag skiter i världen, P.J. Barrett, sfären och juvelen. Spelet kommer på sex mycket långsamma disketter.
