The game is fast-paced and action-packed, with a unique combination of game styles. First, test your reflexes on high-speed chase scenes, then - if you survive - put your brain to work on the maze stages. There's something for everyone in Aladdin.

Play it bad, DJ. Aladdin isn't as smooth for the Game Gear as it is on the Genesis, but what is? You'll be happy with it's variety of challenging side-scrolling levels. Save the princess, touch the monkey, get funky with the blue-tinged wish junkie. Buy it.
Sur GG comme sur SMS, si le jeu est très beau, on ne peut s'empêcher de le trouver trop facile. Dommage.
Aladdin ist eines der besten Game Gear Jump´n Runs und zudem auch einer meiner persönlichen Favoriten. Wer gern immer wieder mal eine Runde auf dem Game Gear hüpfen will, ist definitiv richtig aufgehoben und wird das Modul auch nach mehrmaligem Durchzocken immer wieder gerne einlegen. Ganz klar Daumen hoch!
Daß die Grafik systembedingt nicht an die der 16-Biter heranreichen kann, dürfte wohl jedem einleuchten. Trotz der schlichteren Optik macht das Märchenabenteuer immer noch einen Heidenspaß.

Not bad Sega. It's no Genesis conversion, but it's still a blast nonetheless. At first play, I thought the game only consisted of the chase-type scenes, but I was happy to see that there were action scenes as well. The animation is very good although the levels seem to be a bit short. The tunes are OK, but hey, they're 8-Bit. If you buy one Game Gear game all year, Aladdin is definitely a good choice.
Although it's a great-looking game with some good moments, Aladdin's not gonna be what you've been wishing for unless you're a beginning gamer. A whole new world it ain't.
In the event that you not only own a Game Gear, but are a fan of Aladdin, I see no reason why you shouldn't get this game. Well, actually I do see one reason (the funked up controls), but I can see past that, and I hope that you can, too. This game is the very first Game Gear game that I've ever played (Aladdin took away my virginity), and, thankfully, it didn't ruin Game Gear for me, like The Lion King would have had I played that one first. I can't tell you if this is the best Aladdin game ever created (and I somehow think that it isn't), but if you can find it cheaply, I can promise you that you won't have completely wasted your money. That is, if you found the game AND purchased it. If you didn't, and spent your money on something else, I'd have no way of knowing whether your money was completely wasted or not.
All Game Guide
Sadly, despite all its good points, Disney's Aladdin is simply not worth the money. The game's lack of difficulty makes it a strictly one-shot affair for anyone besides the most novice of gamers.
The Video Game Critic
With repetitive, unimaginative levels and cheap hits out the wazoo, the action gets old real quick. Even the flying carpet sequence lacks any sense of thrill or excitement. Then there's the problem with imprecise controls that lead to many underserved deaths. On the bright side, the graphics and sound aren't bad at all. The characters are large and nicely animated, the backgrounds are attractive, and the music is taken straight from the movie. But the flashy presentation isn't enough to save the uninspired gameplay.
