  1. Evolution is a great moniker as this game has helped evolve the traditional adventure gaming genre entirely.
  2. It's a simple game to figure out and it just doesn't feel all that rewarding to play through. There are very few puzzles in it. Most of the time simply exploring an area is passed off as the puzzle. Have the game's developers lost faith in their audience? We want depth, we want frustratingly obtuse symbol puzzles.
  3. There is nothing new to add to the genre and nothing in particular stands out as being outstanding. Still Atlantis Evolution is a solid adventure game that is reminiscent of "Myst."

    If you or a person on your Christmas list would like an adventure game with a good short story and wouldn't mind a few old-school arcade moments, Atlantis Evolution might suffice, but it's far from being a must-play.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 30
    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.
