  1. If you get past the controls, you'll be rewarded with a fun, thoughtful adventure.
  2. If you've never experienced "Tomb Raider," this game will rock your world. Otherwise it'll be about as familiar as a two-year-old pair of shoes.

    The "Tomb Raider" that Nintendo 64 owners never got. It's a complex, sometimes downright difficult puzzle-filled action-adventure with beautiful visuals and a fun storyline.
  4. A consistently excellent action/adventure with original level design and excellent visuals and audio.
  5. An adventure game that looks and plays shamelessly like "Tomb Raider," only without the oversized breasts.
  6. A big game, to be sure, with enough levels to keep you busy over a three-day rental period. The puzzles within them aren't very original or entertaining, but seeing that this is the only Tomb Raider-style game to come to the Nintendo 64, it deserves at least a little leeway.
  7. The slow-paced gameplay and monotonous platform-style action is likely to grate on your nerves and provide more than a few bouts of exhausted frustration.

    It's a pretty hard game and very challenging, but it's still lots of fun.

    I wish there weren't so many little gliches in the game. Other than that the game was awesome.

    "Nope". Controls are lousy, can't seem to climb a 2ft ledge without having to press the A button more than 4 times.

    Due to horrible controls, a depthless storyline and the awfully simple puzzels compared to previous Indiana Jones titles, no more than a 3 is Due to horrible controls, a depthless storyline and the awfully simple puzzels compared to previous Indiana Jones titles, no more than a 3 is justified. LucasArts should have put more attention to the technical side as well as to the storyline. It's a shame title considering the potential of the Indiana Jones series and character. Expand
