ReceptionEdit

Rick Swan reviewed Future Worlds in Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer No. 83.[2] Swan commented that "Future Worlds could've been a reasonably good supplement for those wishing to add an advanced combat system to another game. a browse through the spell lists might generate some ideas for an existing fantasy campaign. But as for the game itself – not for me."[2]

Lawrence Schick commented that the game was "Heavy on charts and tables and light on character development."[1]
