In some ways, the game is superior to the film because it enables the player to re-enact and live Richard's initiation, as he faces numerous archetypal trials. The fun in this game comes less from the accomplishment of beating it then from the journey itself. I can usually finish it while losing only a few lives, but I still haven't found all of the secret levels and library cards. The meticulous level design and the vast array of power-ups make this game a very good example of classic platform gaming.
De graphics zijn wel aardig, het geluid kan ermee door en het verhaal is wel leuk. Maar om nu te stellen dat met PageMaster een wereld voor je open gaat? Nou nee! Misschien dat in een goed boek meer te beleven valt. Aan jou de keus.
The Pagemaster won't satisfy most palates, but it may be just the thing for young tots who aspire to be like Big Mac. Otherwise, go find something to read.

This game would be enjoyable, but the control just isn't there. Being able to select your stages with a particular theme was innovative, but after missing that jump for the hundredth time...well, you get the idea.

While playing The Pagemaster, you'll appreciate the novel theme and the wide assortment of literary nasties, but you'll wish there was more originality in the game play department.
