  1. The gameplay will have you shaking your head in disbelief and disgust as you encounter one badly designed puzzle, maze, or action sequence after another.

    The story wouldn't be half-bad if it weren't for cliched dialogue (delivered by overly dramatic voice actors) and forgettable characters. [Jan 2005, p.81]
  3. A highly frustrating game. If looks are all that count then it's very good looking, but as an adventure game it falls short of providing a satisfying experience. It would have been much improved minus the mini games, with a lot less dying, and with more attention paid to the adventuring puzzles.
  4. In spite of the awful gameplay, the instant-death mazes, the inventory items that are nearly invisible, and the useless filler of arcade "puzzles", I kept playing because I wanted to see how this game was going to fail at being dramatic this time.
  5. No evolution here; just a splicing of new and old, resulting in more frustration than fun.
  6. Behind all the problems, the tale of Atlantis and quest to liberate its inhabitants is interesting, and has potential to join the next generation of classic adventures. Instead, it seems more like a throwback to the mid-nineties lineup of marginal games shoveled onto CD-ROM.

    Insipid gameplay, laughably bad mini-games, terribly off-key voice acting and aimlessly rambling storyline. About the best thing I can say for this game is it's short.
