I'm Gaming Jay: Youtube gamer, let's player, fan of retro games, and determined optimist... Join me in this series while I try out EACH of the video games in the book 1001 VIDEO GAMES YOU MUST PLAY BEFORE YOU DIE, before I die. The game review for each game will focus on the question of whether you MUST play this game before you die. But to be honest, the game review parts are just for fun, and are not meant to be definitive, in depth reviews; this series is more about the YouTube gamer journey itself. From Mario games to the Halo series, from arcade games to Commodore 64, PC games to the NES and Sega Genesis, Playstation to the Xbox, let's play those classic retro games that we grew up with, have fond memories of, or heard of but never got a chance to try! And with that said, the game review for today is...
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Platform(s) DOS, Amiga, FM Towns
Like all LucasArts adventure games, this game is chalked full of personality and humor. Case in point, the game opens with a cinematic-style opening credits sequence, during which you control Indy as he bumbles his way through some university archives. It's a fun and humorous way to introduce the player to this particular adventure, and sets the stage for things to come.
In terms of actual gameplay, this is a LucasArts game, meaning that you needn't worry about Sierra-style traps or dead ends. For every given puzzle, the pieces needed to solve it are always available, meaning that getting through the game is usually just a matter of patience.
As far as adventure games go, this game does seem to feature a lot of dialogue. In a way, this pushes the game a little bit more towards interactive fiction, which is not a bad thing considering Indiana Jones adventures are awesome.
This game offers a few interesting twists and turns, and as you'd expect for Indiana Jones the story mixes supernatural with the archaeological. Like any true Indiana Jones adventure, the game also features a number of exotic settings from around the world.
Ultimately, this was a fun and safe adventure game, and one that Indy fans and adventure fans alike would probably enjoy.
➙ Must You Play It?
Seeing Indiana Jones in a new adventure is almost reason enough to play this game. Though adventure games are not for everyone, this game has LucasArts' trademark humor and attention to detail. Though the game focuses a bit more on dialogue than challenging puzzles, overall its still an interesting adventure to play through. Probably worth a shot!
