  1. Far too linear for the average gamer, who will also be put off by the sometimes simplistic puzzles and lack of any real sense of adventure.
  2. The gameplay is boring, the puzzles are so-so, the story is non-existent and the humor is bad.
  3. I found this game to be a little on the slow side, as well as frustrating from time to time…hey, let’s face it…when you have been on the path for a while and fifty clicks later…ahhh look…more path! It can get a little tedious.
  4. The game seems unfinished with story development and motivation left out.
  5. I shall finish by saying that if there were a good puzzle in this game it would be “Why would anybody actually buy it?” Thank you for your attention. Good Day.
  6. From the annoying sidekick lizard’s sex jokes, to the whiplash you get from the fast and furious cut-scenes, to the lousy solution guide which is both required reading and written in a horribly obnoxious tone, there’s nothing in Forever Worlds that would appeal to anyone.
  7. It's as if the designers had never even seen a computer game, let alone played one... It's just a terrible game. [July 2004, p.61]

    Graphics are pretty good, especially movies. Unfortunately, this is the only good point, because the game is far too linear and simplicistic Graphics are pretty good, especially movies. Unfortunately, this is the only good point, because the game is far too linear and simplicistic to be at least interesting. Expand
