    Titus' lack of effort in adding the finishing touches will only help move Prehistorik Man to the discount shelf sooner.
  2. Although the game itself looks beautiful, Prehistorik Man is fairly vanilla in terms of gameplay.
  3. Some people might not mind things like password saves and really enjoy 2D side-scrolling platformers, and I highly recommend this game to those people.

    Doesn't have an original bone in his body, but I didin't seem to mind. [Jan 2002, p.98]
  5. Prehistorik Man is easy to control and is fun to play, which is something games now days have gotten away from.

    The game has visuals and personality to burn. [Feb 2002, p.66]
  7. With nice graphics and a storyline you don't mind following with a likeable hero, Prehistorik Man is a GBA title that has a lot going for it even though it follows the tried-and-true path of the 16-bit platform game to a "T".

    The graphics are vibrant, the beat-driven music is catchy and the madcap action boasts hidden areas and collectibles you can cash in for help. [Nov 2001, p.148]
  9. It manages to feel fresh due to the non-linear nature of its gameplay and the way it places its levels within a narrative context.
  10. If you want something more advanced for your Advance, pass this fossil up.
  11. A solid platformer, but also at the same time is somewhat generic.
