Get it! This is one of the best, no.. maybe actually THE BEST role playing game I've played as far as I can remember (and I've been playing RPG's for many years). Put Entomorph at the top of your christmas gift lists (you guys still write those don't ya?). I haven't seen it at too many stores thus far, but it's certainly worth looking for.

Coming Soon Magazine (Jan 13, 1996)
After Thunderscape, the first episode in the new World of Aden, S.S.I. has just released a second title in the series called Entomorph: Plague of the Darkfall. This time, the game doesn't use a first person perspective but rather an isometric view where you see your character moving in a 3D environment.

Score (Nov, 1995)
Entomorph je ve své kategorii v současné době tím nejlepším, na co můžete svými pařáty (tedy samozřejmě až po mutaci v kudlanku) sáhnout a co můžete hrát. Nabízí vynikající kombinaci originálního a neotřelého nápadu se skutečně fantastickou grafikou, výborným originálním soundtrackem a hrstkou působivých animovaných scén, které perfektně doplňují příběh - ať už to jsou animace metamorfózy hlavního hrdiny v něco odpudivého, nebo neskonale hnusné obrazy monstrózních "matek" hmyzích komunit.

High Score (Mar, 1996)
Själva spelet är dock långt ifrån enkelt. Svårighetsgraden på problemen och storleken på "insektsmonstren" stegras snabbt och det kräver både uthållighet och eftertanke för att ta sig igenom Entomorph. Och förmodligen är det bland det roligaste man kan spela i rollspelsväg just nu. Testa själv.

Power Play (Dec, 1995)
Trotz des wesentlich verbesserten Erscheinungsbildes und der recht originellen Insektenplage-Story bietet “Entomorph“ nicht mehr Spielspaß als seine vergleichbaren Vorgänger aus SSIs “Dark Sun“-Reihe. Zu einem kontinuierlichen ansteigenden Spannungsaufbau mangelt es den grafisch zweifelsohne liebevoll gestalteten Bereichen der Insel Kyan an Abwechslung, Euren Gesprächspartnern an Charisma, den Puzzles an Logik und dem Großteil Eurer Gegner an künstlicher Intelligenz. Selbst um relativ unwichtige Items zu besorgen, seid Ihr ständig zwischen den auf Dauer zu langweiligen und gleichförmigen Bereichen Kyans auf der Walz. Ein besonderes Lob hingegen verdient die gelungene Idee, vorübergehend in den Körper einer überdimensionalen Biene schlüpfen zu können, mit der bösen Bienenkönigin gehörig aufräumt.

Techtite (2000)
This was an RPG that seemed to be on the back shelves of software stores, before it even got a chance to sell. That was probably due to a lackluster ad campaign for yet-another-SSI RPG, although it also had a few added mistakes going against it. For one, the gamer can only play as one character, not the typical "teams" of characters most RPG fans are used to. In addition, it is quite a linear story, and is more Adventure than RPG in many ways. However, these mistakes are forgivable, if just because the story is quite amusing; a plague has overcome the land, making everyone into various types of bugs...including the hero of the game himself! As the game progresses, you begin to use your newfound insect powers, as well as your regular human skills, to try to defeat this plague, and make everyone human again. It might not have been the best RPG game available, then or now, though it was still fun...

Overall, Entomorph is something of a hybrid: part action, part adventure, part role-playing. While it probably does not have enough of any one element to satisfy fans of a particular genre, the game does work fairly well with what it has, and is a quick play. It's the sort of game you do while waiting for the next epic to come along. If you don't mind romping amongst the insects, or the somewhat limited combat, you might have some fun with it.
