  1. Nintendo Power
    The graphic style may appeal mainly to young players, but the gameplay, humor and story will attract gamers of all ages. [Mar 2004, p.123]
  2. Minigame tasks and plot scenes crop up frequently, and the character animation is so smooth--not to mention hilarious--that most players will come away genuinely entertained when all is said and done.
  3. 70
    The majority of the game's development revolves around a slightly flawed side-scrolling design that needed a bit of tweaking before it shipped. Other than that issue, Pitfall Harry's latest adventure is a fun, lengthy, if just a little generic one on the handheld.
  4. It isn't a bad game by any stretch of the imagination, and it's lovely to see some of the old Pitfall elements back after such a long hiatus. But some dodgy level design causing a multitude of unfair deaths means that we quickly became frustrated.
  5. There is no sense in reinventing the wheel, but this comes off as a lazy, rehash of current games. You can't ride on a name for long.
  6. 65
    There's just nothing new at all on the gameplay end, and nothing very compelling on the external-polish end. It's hardly the first GBA game to be guilty of this, but it won't do much to compel people to buy it.
  7. Game Informer
    The Frogger-inspired log jumping stage is one of the most ill-conceived moments in gaming, and is the perfect example of the uneven difficulty level in this title. [Apr 2004, p.110]
  8. 60
    Less varied but deeper gameplay would have been the way to go. While the variety of different gaming styles is initially a kick, none of them end up being very memorable.
  9. Pocket Games
    Good for a generic game but disappointing for Pitfall. Harry deserves better. [Summer 2004, p.38]
  10. Cheat Code Central
    The game has a good sense of humor and makes reference to Pitfall and Pitfall 2. It's not a very long game but offers enough challenge to keep you busy for a few days.
  11. This newest edition of Pitfall has all the elements to make a fun platformer, but it is just put together rather sloppily.
  12. The game simply has too many design flaws for it to get anywhere near the quality level of its predecessors.
