  1. I thought the humor alone was worth the price of admission. Every thing that Harry does or says is over-exaggerated to the point of absurd silliness.
  2. 78
    A worthy sequel to the classic franchise in every way. Tight control, innovative single-arm abilities, and huge, ambient, varied environments to explore.
  3. Pitfall has enough charm to win me over, even if linear platformers are a bit dated. [Jan 2005, p.81]
  4. Though it features a few more annoying control restrictions than its console counterparts, it's still a solid platformer.
  5. Fills a void on the PC, that gray area between Freddy Fish and "Half-Life 2."
  6. Standard fare, neither horrible nor amazing.
  7. All that leaping and fighting doesn't fit very well with keyboard controls. [Jan 2005, p.98]
  8. It's not particularly new or original, but it's a well-done adventure for all ages. [March 2005, p.79]
  9. Add in a console-style save system that only lets you save progress at the start of a level, and you've got a guaranteed recipe for infuriation. [Jan 2005, p.96]
