Pitfall: The Lost Expedition

22 March 2004
  • Excerpt: Not Activision's first go at refurbishing Pitfall, that consummate classic from the Atari 2600 days, but it's the first one to totally modernize the pixilated platformer while remaining true to its pedigree.

Pitfall: The Lost Expedition

10 March 2004
  • Excerpt: Plenty of gamers have been waiting for an update to Metroid's classic 2D hub-based gameplay. While the release of Metroid Prime showed that the jump to 3D and the simultaneous switch in gears to a first-person perspective showed the gameplay definitely works. However, there are still those of us that wouldn't mind seeing the series brought into a proper third-person 3D view and executed with the same flair.

  • Conclusion: Pitfall: The Lost Expedition, it elates, it frustrates, it makes you chuckle. A fun play filled with varied and inventive gameplay, not to mention pretty graphics and, last but not least, an endearing hero you can't help loving. Top stuff!

Pitfall: Die verlorene Expedition

5 March 2004
  • Conclusion: Pitfall: Die verlorene Expedition ist ein Jump`n`Run mit viel Witz, das sich selbst nicht allzu ernst nimmt. Es gibt viele geheime Wege quer durch abwechsungreiche Levels zu erschwingen. Selbst an total ausgeflippten Gegnern und t�ckischen Fallen mangelt es nicht. Nur die etwas zu d�ster geratenen H�hlenabschnitte und die mit der Zeit etwas �berladene Steuerung tr�ben ein bisschen die Spielfreude. Fans des Genres k�nnen sich dem Titel jedoch bedenkenlos annehmen.
  • Pros: schöne Levels, gelungener Sound, viele versteckte Goodies, gute Sprachsugabe
  • Cons: überladene Steuerung, einige Levels zu dunkel
