Summary: Pitfall is an old favorite and it doesnt' disappoint. The graphics are great and it is fun to play. If you are a pitfall fan, this is a great buy to get. The levels are good and some of the scenarios are similar to the old version. The only downfall is that it could be a little longer. There should be more levels and it would make the game longer. Once you finish it you want more.
Summary: I had alot of fun with this one. If you played the orginal Pitfall, this made your imagination come to life. Game play is easy and controling Harry was pretty simple. Realistic look of the jungle with authentic sounds. The object is to find the evil shamen of the jungle. Simple game easy to follow the storyline. You search the areas finding Tikis to give you special abilities in the game and play the orignal Pitfal 1980 and Pitfall II 1984.
Summary: This is a great game! Lots of fun places to go and you get the chance to unlock the the original Pitfall.I would compare it with Jax and Daxter types of games.Well worth your time. We put in about 35 hours of play.Enjoy!!
Summary: Before I say anymore, I want to tell everyone NOT to take my three star rating too seriously. This rating was specific to my experience, and more specificly, my gaming ability. I am fairly new at this kind of gaming, as I usually play pc games only. I used to play the original version of Pitfall, years ago, and remember it fondly. I like the grafix, and Harry's personality a lot. I am having a difficult time getting past the beginning after the crocodiles.
Summary: I got this video game for my kids, aged 7, 9, 14, & 16, and they have all enjoyed playing it. My 7 year old has a harder time, but it's just because he doesn't know what to do. My 9 year old loves it, and I must say I sit and watch him and it makes me want to play. It's a great adventure game, with lots to explore, that isn't fast and it's easy to understand. You get hooked on it. I am happy that I got it, and would recommend it to others.
Summary: I could'nt be more pleased with this purchase. I remember enjoying the old ATARI Pitfall game when I was a kid, but this version by ACTIVISION is far superior. It has some of the same type moves, such as swinging on vines, jumping over pits, and avoiding being eaten by crocs and scorpions. There are some new moves, too, like special kicks, and using a sling shot. Harry can earn special tools, too. The graphics are 100x better than the old Pitfall.
Summary: I am not a video game person, myself, but I picked out this game for my brother for his birthday and he let me play it once and I was addicted. It's not gory or shoot-em-up and the setting is in the wilderness. I never got bored with this. My sister doesn't like video games either, and she sat with me while I played it every day just to watch.
Summary: The game is excellent for the ones that like to set down every day/other day and play to the next save point. It gives challenges but it is long enough and challenging enough to not set down at one time and play the game.
