Był zimny wieczór, kiedy Twój FERRARI z piskiem opon zatrzymał się przed bramą laboratorium. Zostałeś zidentyfikowany przez superkomputer i przystąpiłeś do pracy. Zajmowałeś się eksperymentalnym badaniem właściwości cząstek elementarnych. Popijając piwo czekałeś na wynik eksperymentu. Dalsze wydarzenia potoczyły się w zawrotnym tempie. Huk, błysk, eksplozja i oto znajdujesz się w basenie. Nie wiadomo dokładnie co się stało - piorun uderzył w część akceleratora, i znalazłeś się na Ziemi (a może gdzie indziej?), tyle że w dalekiej przyszłości (a może nie?).
Out of this World is a milestone in computer entertainment. If I hadn't seen it for myself, I wouldn't have believed polygon graphics, animation, and cinematic ideas could be used so effectively. Out of this World certainly is.
Amiga Computing
Great presentation, complimentary sound effects and captivating cinema-style gameplay - what more can I say? If you found Cruise For a Corpse a bit too cerebral to get to grips with, then get your hands on this. A barnstormer.
Amiga Action
Although it isn't very evident from the still screen shots shown with this review the graphics for Another World are superb. The animation is realistic and smooth, making the game very accessible. This coupled with the atmospheric presentation gets you hooked instantly. The gameplay is similar to Prince of Persia but has a little of the Dragon's Quest series thrown in. The result is a game that is simple enough for anyone, instantly addictive and varied enough to keep you going for days. Without a doubt Another World is a superb game that should be in everyone's collection. Buy it now!
Amiga Power
Near-perfect graphics (it's the animation and stylised approach that do it) are combined with wonderfully appropriate sound effects some truly breathtaking setpieces. Despite obvious reference points (Impossible Mission, Prince of Persia, Cruise For a Corpse), Another World is one of a kind. Let's hope that doesn't remain true for too long.
Out of This World is a landmark game for a host of reasons, from the 2D polygonal work to its excellent narrative. I think what strikes me most about the game, even today, is its ability to tell a compelling story without holding up flashing signs. Without text or speech, you have to find the game's emotional core on your own as well as solve its series of challenges. If you want to see a major influence in motion, hunt down a copy of Out of This World for the PC or consoles. Or, if you want the purest experience, dust off an Amiga. The reward is worth the effort.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
So sehr mich die spannende und einmalig in Szene gesetzte Geschichte mitgerissen hat, gerät sie doch fast ins hintertreffen, wenn man bedenkt, daß die Franzosen hier mit vollst animierter, hunderprozentig berechneter Vektorgrafik aufwarten. Selbst bei anatomischen Bewegungen und grafisch aufwendigen 3D-Effekten hat man bei der Entstehung von ANOTHER WORLD wohl keine Hemmungen gekannt. Den letzten Schliff erhielt das Game dann durch die sichtlich geschulte Hand eines Grafikers, der Form und Farbe so einsetzte, daß die beabsichtigte Atmospähre nicht zu kurz kommt: Eine Welt in einer fernen Dimension, eiskalt, ruchlos, brutal, gleichzeitig geheimnisvoll, spannend und immer wieder unbekannt. In Chaykins Haut möchte ich nie stecken, in Delphines jederzeit. Weiter so!
Amiga Format
Another World is a major achievement. It brings Delphine to the fore as major developers in another field of design, it's the kind of game you want to show your Gran, (because it has such a cinematic feel even she'd understand it) and its the kind of game you really want to discover for yourself. The approach and results are unique. For all its glory Another World is still a game first, and it is here that it is sometimes found wanting. For the most part it excels, but it fails in a few key gameplay areas. It is worth buying, just for the power of the effects and the sweetness of its finer game moments. Be warned though, there are times when you're really begin to hate the French.

Mit den vorangegangenen Delphine-Adventures hat die andere Welt somit nicht viel gemeinsam, was aber keineswegs heißen soll, daß man hier das Hirn abschalten darf. Im Gegentum: Another World ist ein ebenso sehens - wie spielenswertes Stück Software, das Tüftel- und Actionelemente sehr geschickt vereint!
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
Another World is a most peculiar game to rate. It isn't going to keep you occupied for the rest of your life, since it's actually quite a small game and the action progresses at quite a pace. However, for the time while you are learning about it's subtieties, it's most engaging. At its most basic level, it's an interesting departure from the graphic style of most arcade adventures. Gamers fond of hefty adventure elements in their arcade adventures, however, may find Another World rather lacking, since the game is virtually bereft of object manipulation or anything but the simplest problems to solve.
Power Play
"Another World" kann sich durchaus sehen lassen: Die 3-D-Polygongrafik sieht verdammt gut aus. Leider haben sich die Programmierer beim Spieldesign erheblich weniger Mühe gegeben. So krankt "Another World" an den gleichen Symptomen, an denen schon die "Space Ace"-Familie dahinsiechte. Spielerisch bietet Delphins Actionprogramm nicht mehr als einen Fingerhut voll Unterhaltung. In den jeweiligen Bildern nur ein, zwei, oder auch dreimal den Joystick in eine Richtung zu drücken, ermüdet auf Dauer und sorgt nicht gerade für gehobenen Spielspaß. Ich frage mich, wofür die zwei Jahre Entwicklungszeit gebraucht worden sind.
