Computer and Video Games (CVG)
A fabulous conversion of a brilliant coin-op, this is the bargain basement shoot 'em up fan's dream come true! Take on the evil Emperor Bios after battling through wave after wave of fascinating aliens using a multitude of weapons and special bonuses. An absolute steal at the giveaway price, rush forth and grab this slice of arcade mayhem right away!

The Games Machine (UK)
Don't question how they managed to squeeze nearly all the graphics, speech and digitised pictures of one awesome coin-op into one 512K machine, just play the game! Smooth as silk scrolling goes unnoticed when you're up to your armpits in aliens and bullets, all beautifully detailed, with colour galore making Forgotten Worlds a 16-bit unbeatable treat.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
By far the best conversion of the lot. The graphics maintain a close arcade look, all the features have been included and used to great effect. Arc developments, the programming team, have more than surpassed themselves with this conversion.

The One
Impressive parallax scrolling looks great and creates an authentic coin-op feel, although this doesn't in any way improve the gameplay. Arc has done US Gold proud with this conversion of one of the most technically accomplished coin-ops yet seen, and it bodes well for future projects.

Power Play
Forgotten Worlds ist kein Software-Meilenstein, der alles auf den Kopf stellt. Es ist aber ein sehr professionell gemachtes Actionspiel für Flínkfinger, das vor allem zu zweit seinen Reiz hat. Wer sich alleine ins Getümmel wagt, muß schon sehr gut am Joystick sein, um weit zu kommen.

Amiga Power
[Budget re-release] A fairly enjoyable, though slightly dated, arcade romp which benefits from a two-player mode.

The One
[Budget re-release] The strange rotational movement takes some getting used to and the sprites and backdrops are beginning to look pretty crude compared to some modern-day harbingers of death. However, for the price it's not bad and as two-player action goes, it's likely to keep you amused for a couple of hours at a time.

ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Zwar verfügt der Amiga über ein suberes Scrolling, größere Sprites und Grafiken, aber auf diesem Rechner ist das Game kaum mehr spielbar. Zum einen kann der Held nicht schnell genug schießen, zum anderen gibt es viel mehr Gegner, die viel mehr schießen und viel mehr Treffer verkraften, so daß das Ganze viel weniger Spaß macht.
