Gravis Ludus' Carl Williams writes, "I am from North America so I will be using the name Out of this World instead of Another World since that is what I know it by. When Out of this World hit in the early 1990’s on the Super Nintendo it was a revelation in gaming. For many it was not quite their thing, for some of us it was amazing. The Super Nintendo was not known for its polygon power yet here was this smooth action game made up of nothing but them. Unlike other action/adventure games, Out of this World broke things up with cinematics. You were told a story without a single bit of dialogue. There were camera angle changes, beautifully detailed, in their minimalist style, scenes to figure out and more. Interplay did well to bring this title out."
