Pitfall: The Lost Expedition

  • Excerpt: Another day, another platformgame, will it die immediately and be buried on the shelf or it will it heat up in the ps2-drive and copy itself to the RAM in a desperate attempt to be remembered forever and ending up it the mind of gamers only to be mentioned once a year in a nostalgic rush like: “Do you remember the time when we played Pitfall, those were the days my friend”.

  • Summary: I remember when I was a kid, and I used to pretend I was sick so I could stay home and play video games all day. Keep in mind, this was pre-NES, so I had the awesome Colecovision with the Atari 2600 adapter. One of my all-time favorites was . In those early days of gaming, it seemed so vast, and you could spend hours exploring and dodging bats. Ahhh, good times…. Obviously, video games have come quite a long way since then. But a good character never gets old.

  • 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

  • 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

SplashGames
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
