MobyRanks are listed below. You can read here for more information about MobyRank.
Puzzle enthusiasts will adore this game. If you're a fan of Tomb Raider or any of the Indiana Jones games, this will be a great adventure for you. If you're having trouble picturing what this game's all about, try to remember Crystal Caves, Arctic Adventure, or Pharoah's Tomb on your old PC. This is will give gamers who like challenges and have lots of patience a good bang for their buck. It more than does the PC game justice
The Video Game Critic
All in all, Montezuma's Return is a heck of a lot of fun, mainly because it doesn't try to fix what's not broken.

En fait, on se croirait revenu dix ans en arrière : une réalisation sans artifice inutile mais un concept et un gameplay solide ainsi qu’une bonne dose de fun ! Montezuma’s Return ! est un des meilleurs jeux du moment, à posséder absolument pour tous les fans d’action/plate-forme. Et même pour les autres...
I'm impressed with how well the remake has come out on the Game Boy Color, considering the source of the game's track record on the system. It seems that a classic can really shine on the trusty Nintendo handheld, even when it's been designed a bit different than the original. It's a great game that has a few gameplay issues, but all in all I'm very satisfied with how the conversion came out. It'll last you quite a while from start to finish.

Angesichts solcher Titel fühlt man sich direkt in Zeit zurückversetzt. Das überaus simple Spielprinzip wirkt im Jahr‘99 fast anachronistisch. Dennoch hat die minimalistische Suchaktion dank exakt gestalteter Räume durchaus seinen Reiz. Wagemutige Abenteurer sollten sich jedoch im klaren sein, dass der Schwierigkeitsgrad aufgrund der peniblen Kollisionsabfrage recht happig ausfällt und innovative Ansätze eine 100%ige Mangelware sind. Noch ein Wort zur Technik: Die Grafik ist übersichtlich, detailliert und recht farbig. während das Gedudel im Hintergrund schlichtweg nervt.
