Ce jeu de Capcom ne manque pas d'originalité, car le système consistant à faire tourner votre fusil de manière à pouvoir tirer dans n'importe quelle direction est assez inhabituel. Cette conversion est d'un maniement très simple, grâce aux boutons qui vous permettent e tourner dans un sens ou dans l'autre, tanis que le tir est automatique. On se prend tout de suite au jeu, d'autant plus que progressive et qu'il faut s'accrocher pour en venir à bout. Le seul défaut de cette version c'est qu'il n'est pas possible de jouer à deux, mais Forgotten worlds est un programme indispensable pour tous les amateurs de shoot'em up.

Endlich, nach langer Zeit ist es wieder einmal so weit: Ein ordentliches Ballerspiel fürs Master System macht Furore. Neben der ausgezeichneten Grafik gefällt auch die Spielbarkeit. Nach den Ruckel-Zuckel-Flackerorgien vergangener Monate glänzt Forgotten Worlds durch flüssiges Scrolling und flackerarmes Spritegetümmel. Selbst bei den Schlußmonstern machen sich kaum die gewohnten Mängel bemerkbar. Die fünf Welten sind erfrischend unterschiedlich. Immer neue Angreifer und die reichliche Auswahl an Extrawaffen geben Spielraum zum Experimentieren. Für die unterschiedlichen Abschnitte sind verschiedene Waffenkombinationen angebracht. Die drei Schwierigkeitsgrade sind hervorragend gewichtet. [..] Verglichen mit den lahmen Ballerkrücken der letzten Monate ein echte Leckerbissen.

The sprites are really great, looking like smaller versions of the graphics in the Megadrive game, but unfortunately, they are the game's only asset worth mentioning. It's not that the game is bad as such, it just, well, doesn't pack much of a punch. If you liked the arcade game you'd more than likely get a few thrills out of this, but otherwise you'd probably be happier playing the Sega version of R-Type, which was much more impressive and enjoyable.

At first I hated the way the game played, but it didn't take long before I was won over by the game's fast action and unique worlds. At its heart it's nothing more than a 2D shooter, but it's unique enough to recommend along side some of the other great shooters. It's not quite as refined as I would have hoped, but if you've been looking for an exciting shooter for your Master System this is a great place to start.
Die abwechslungsreiche Grafik scrollt horizontal wie vertikal völlig ruckelfrei, und auch die zahlreichen Gegner sind nett anzusehen. Leider beschränken sich die Sereenanzeigen auf einen einsamen Energiebalken, den Punkte- und Geldkontostand erfahrt man erst am Levelende. Musik und FX hätten auch getrost ein wenig spektakulärer ausfallen dürfen, genau wie das Spielprinzip nicht mehr so ganz taufrisch ist. Aber auf dem Master System muß man halt für jede ordentliche Ballerei dankbar sein...

Une belle conversion particulièrement jouable mais gâchée par un manque de difficulté et une faible durée de vie.

Although the Megadrive version was very polished, it suffered from being too easy. The Sega conversion also has this problem, and the definitely weakens the lasting appeal of the game. The graphics are of a very high standard (especially on the later levels) but the music is dire and distracting. It's not by any means a bad game; it just isn't that good either, and it's a shame that the two-player option has been lost. With Xenon II due out in the near future (see the preview in this ish) I'd recommend that you wait for that game, as it's a far better blast.
