Summary: I got this game brand new for $10 where new games usually sell for around $30 to $50, and that should give you a clue. Although it's a very fun game, it can get a bit frustrating both for kids and adults. The controls are not consistent and Pitfall Harry suffers from what I call "grease on the floor" syndrome - where the character seems to be slipping on the floor all the time.
Summary: While the gameplay may not be the most ground breaking, the fun factor behind this game is great. The cartoonish atmosphere and the characters will make kids and adults alike smile throughout the game. Whether it's Harry's wit, the damsels in distress, the talking animals or the "oooga booga" natives, the humor and the story work well together, as well as keep challenging and fun gameplay through 50 levels. If you are looking for a technology reveloution, look elsewhere.
Summary: I got a chance to play through a demo of this game and really enjoyed it. I grew up playing the original Pitfall on the Atari 2600 and even the mediocre Sega Genesis version, but this new developer (Edge of Reality) really "gets" the game. Pitfall does not take itself too seriously, but it really is a seriously good action/platformer game. You'll have fun, and so will your kids. It's a title the whole family can sit down and play. Go ahead, take it for a swing.
Summary: This is an excellent game. The storyline's good( a bit good guy/bad guy). The variety of moves, tools, and weapons are both excellent and entertaining, the x-box controller is really put to use. The graphics are good.Enemies include bats, scorpions, many different types of ape (including howler monkeys - you don't want to set them off, firstly because of the racket and secondly they pelt you with grapefruits), crocodiles, penguins, porcupines - all your regular jungle...
