Amiga Mania
I've seen some exciting games before, but this one really is superb. The Humans has everything : great graphics, including a variety of backdrops, some neat sounds, that elusive addiction factor and thousands of careful, loving man-hours of development work. I'm pleased to say that those long months at the keyboard were worth every second. Buy The Humans, you won't be disappointed.

Amiga Joker
The Humans ist ein überaus gelungener Genre-Cocktail, der blitzschnell zum Longdrink wird; so einfach kommt man von den haarsträubenden Geschicklichkeits- und Denksportaufgaben nämlich nicht wieder los. Die einleuchtende Steuerung (Stick, Icons und/oder Tasten), die putzige Grafik mit den himmlischen Animationen, höllischen Cartoon-Sequenzen und dem kleinen aber feinen Scrolling, sowie der jederzeit passende Soundtrack tun ein übriges – bald schon ist man nach den witzigen Wichten noch süchtiger, als man das nach den launigen Lemmingen war!

"Ug." said Oggy. "Og." said Uggy. And with the pleasantries over with, Oggy and Uggy set about starting the Human Race.

Attention to detail is fast becoming Mirage standard, with good colourful bulky packaging and well-produced documentation. It does take an age to load, a real downer that one, but the wait is will worth it, as the game is so cute.

Humans is a hell of a lot of fun to play, even if most of the levels require repeated endeavour to crack them. With each level made up of a number of screens, it is never immediately apparent what you are supposed to do or where you are supposed to go. Because of its similarities with Lemmings, the game will probably be slagged off by a number of magazines, but that is being incredibly short-sighted as the gameplay is decidedly different and very challenging. The incidental humour and brilliant animation only add to what is already an above average game, and I heartily recommend Humans to anyone who enjoys a challenge.

The One
The Humans smacks of class and humour. From the groovy animation illustrating key points in the game to the hilarious caveman band that appears on the high-score table, you'll be smiling broadly during play. The game's only major flaw is that once all the inventions have been discovered the game never really seems to 'go' anywhere. While fresh objectives are added in later levels (such as rescuing the Queen and saving prisoners), it all tends to feel like just more of the same. I really don't want to carp on as overall The Humans is well-crafted and highly enjoyable, but it's definitely a thinking man's puzzler and anybody expecting nail-biting action is going to be disappointed.

Amiga Format
Too much disk loading for anybody's liking. Have a good book handy. Derivative of the Lemmings genre, but that's no bad thing in itself. Imaginative levels later on the game, plenty of thought has gone into the puzzles. There are a few glitches that can be tap-drippingly irritating.

Amiga Power
There's a fine game struggling to get out here, but it's all a bit too stodgy. The idea is interesting enough but the controls fight against any fluency and the graphics, while bold and colourful, just aren't witty enough to save it. Puzzles fans might enjoy it, but anyone expecting anything as frantic and addictive as Lemmings should steer well clear.
