Video Games (Dec, 1998)
Wer mit den Lemmingen noch nie Kontakt hatte, sollte es tunlichst bleiben lassen. Denn seid Ihr erst mal angefixt, ist alles andere nebensächlich. Familie, Schule, Studium, Beruf - das alles zählt nicht mehr, wenn es gilt die liebenswerten, grünhaarigen Trottel am Selbstmord zu hindern. Und auch wenn Grafik, Musik und Geräusche bei weitem nicht mehr State the Art sind, bringt dieser Klassiker doch mehr Spaß als die meisten hypermodernen, mit Dolby Surround und endlosen Rendersequenzen verzierten Neuentwicklungen. Wer sich also nicht nur immer blenden lassen möchte, sondern wirklich Spaß unterm Tannenbaum sucht, der ist mit Lemmings für ‘n Fuffi bestens beraten.

If you can remember the originals and you secretly wish you hadn’t thrown away your battered old Amiga just so you could play Lemmings again, then check this out. It’s addictive!
I don't see any downside to getting this classic compilation. For starters, it's dirt cheap and it's more than 200 puzzles will keep you playing the game for months. Lemmings veterans should buy it to relive the addictive gameplay, while newbies need it to see what all the fuss is about. Yes, control sucks with the joypad - until you get used to it.
Mega Fun (Dec, 1998)
Lemmings ist nach wie vor eine nette Knobelei. Die Stärken liegen weniger auf der technischen Ebene, vielmehr fesseln die ab einem bestimmten Grad echt harten Rätsel vor den Bildschirm. Diese Version reizt besonders wegen des Kampfpreises von gerade einmal 49,- DM. Dafür bekommt ihr immerhin 209 Levels. Wer also weniger Wert auf Grafik legt und dafür lang andauerndes Brainjogging betreiben möchte, der sollte bei Lemmings zugreifen.

Lemmings is still a very fun game for all ages. It offers clean, non violent fun with tons of challenge. Be warned though, this is the original game in its original form which may not be enough to warrant a purchase. The price is low, the game is good but old.
IGN (Oct 22, 1998)
If you've played the PC, Amiga, Atari ST, Super NES, Genesis, Lynx, and Game Boy versions of Lemmings, you're not going to find anything new here. This is a port that should have been done a couple years ago. But regardless, it's a brilliant game from the same odd gang of Scots that brought us the even more violent Grand Theft Auto.
Gamezilla (Nov 24, 1998)
This is a game that can be enjoyed by people with limited hand-eye coordination or ability. It is a puzzle game that may require you to move the cursor around quickly, but gives you as many retries as it takes to finish each level. If you like puzzles and don’t mind simple graphics, then I would highly recommend the game. However, be forewarned that this game is very addicting and can melt hours and days off your life if you’re not careful.

Lemmings is leuk en verslavend, maar wel een beetje old-school. Daar is niks mis mee, maar van mij hadden ze het grafische gedeelte wel een facelift kunnen geven. Als je het nooit hebt gespeeld is het zeker de moeite waard om te checken.
