Bottom line, it's a great platformer. It follows the formula of the Super Star Wars trilogy to the letter, but takes the best parts of each. It's rarely complicated, often gorgeous, and always fun. Adventure has a name, and his name is worth being stamped on this cart.

Some might argue that the Indiana Jones films were slighted by being packed into one cartridge, but I don't think there's a problem at all - the game is filled with cool levels that cover all the main points of the movies without getting ridiculously long or hard. Indiana Jone's Greatest Adventures will make you do a freaky, twitchy dance.

If you love Indy, action, whips and side-scrollers, you can't go wrong. This isn't just another jump, shoot, fight a boss and repeat game. The levels change and the action continues. So what are you waiting for? The limited edition box set? A written invitation? A Nazi invasion? Get out there and at least give this game a rent.

Lucas Arts haben Factor 5 scheinbar sehr genaue Vorgaben gemacht, anders kann ich mit nicht erklären, warum auch Indiana Jones deutlich die Handschrift der Star Wars-Trilogie trägt. Kenner der JVC-Module wissen somit was sie erwartet: Eine atmosphärisch dichte Umsetzung der Erfolgsserie mit dem Original Soundtrack sowie einem äußerst actionlastigen Spielprinzip. Durch den Gebrauch der Peitsche ähnelt Indy zwar nicht nur auf dem ersten Blick Konamis Castlevania IV, doch das Original gefallt mir aufgrund des augeklügelteren Leveldesign eine Ecke besser, zumal die Sounduntermalung so herrlich düster ist. Den Kölnern muß man allerdings zugute halten, daß sie die optimale Mischung zwischen Schwierigkeitsgrad und Passwortsystem gefunden haben, das den Spielern die Möglichkeit gibt ohne arge Frusterlebnisse neu einzusteigen, Somit gehört Indiana Jones zu der (aussterbenden) Sorte von Spielen, die nicht bereits nach wenigen Tagen im Schrank verstauben; ein potentieller Klassiker.

With pretty much every single action scene from the movies accounted for in the game's 28 stages, this is an absolute must-play for Indiana Jones fans. People who haven't seen the original trilogy of movies might want to watch them first, or they can take a gamble and play the game anyway - perhaps you'll want to see the movies because of the game! Forget recent disappointments bearing the Indiana Jones name - this is where it's at!

Der hervorragende Sound sorgt für eine packende Atmosphäre, es wurde aber nicht nur Musik aus dem Film verwandt. Die teilweise sehr unterschiedliche, detaillierte Hintergrundgrafik ist sehr ansprechend und gehört trotz der gelegentlich zu grauen Jump&Run-Abschnitte zur Oberklasse auf dem Super Nintendo. Fans des Genres werden „Indiana Jones Greatest Adventures“ wirklich gut bedient, und auch für alle anderen ist dieses Action-Modul durchaus empfehlenswert.

Indiana Jones fans will really get a charge out of this SNES production from Factor 5. I played the game to death when it came out in 1994, and I have enjoyed coming back to it as the new film casts a shadow over pop culture. Definitely check it out if you are a fan of classic platforming, as it provides a good challenge as well as being a great example of how to make a licensed game.

Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures is exactly that, a trip through Indy’s three outstanding adventure movies in classic platforming style. The three “Mode 7″ stages take away a little of the game’s magic. It’s also extremely difficult and will require a bit of memorization of enemy placement and their pattern to progress. It does help that the game is password enabled, so your never forced to complete it in one play-through, always a relief.

If you think the Indy movies are among the best adventure films ever made, you'll have a great time with this game. Just like the films, though, you have to draw on the magic of movies a little to play. Although it's not a heavy hitter like Earthworm Jim and the Super Star Wars series, Indiana Jones will take you away. But you'll be back real soon.

Man sollte zwar keine übermäßig hohen Erwartungen an das Spiel haben, da es im Platform-Genre keine Bäume ausreißt, doch für Genrefans, die etwas für die Indy-Reihe übrig haben, ist das Spiel ein tolle Unterhaltung. Die Steuerung ist dynamischer als die eines "Castlevanias" und präziser als bei "Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure". Atmosphärisch lebt das Spiel in erster Linie vom Soundtrack und den "Cutscenes". Das Leveldesign ist abwechslungreich, aber spielerisch nicht viel mehr als Mittelmaß. Addiert man als diese Faktoren ergibt das einen guten Platformer mit Lizenz-Bonus.

Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventure est un pur jeu de plates-formes de l'époque. Destiné aux fans avant tout, le soft propose un nombre impressionnant de références à la saga. Soigneusement realisé par des développeurs de talent cette adaptation est agréable à parcourir, à condition bien sûr de ne pas se décourager avant la fin de l'aventure devant la difficulté de certains passages.

Un jeu vidéo, pour qu'il soit bon, il faut qu'il soit pensé du point de vue du joueur, il faut donner à celui-ci des chances de s'en sortir. Dans Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures, les situations lui sont lancées à la face, il a une demi-douzaine de carrés de vie pour s'en sortir, et il se débrouille avec ça, point final. Alors le joueurs subit; il subit les lancers de couteaux aléatoires et donc imprévisibles, il subit des attaques inévitables, il subit l'agressivité des programeurs, et un jeu qu'on subit, eh bien, ce n'est pas un jeu qui atteint ses objectifs de divertissement. Triste constat: sur consoles, Indiana Jones est un corrompu qui travaille au service des forces du mal, et ce ne sont pas les autres adaptations qui pourront démentir cette désagréable petite vérité.

Indiana Jones came as quite a surprise. At first glance, the graphics will draw you in with incredible attention to detail, especially in the cinema displays. But play it and a few problems crop up: the sheer amount of instant hits will let you see just how aerodynamic your controller is as you hurl it across the room. Other than that, playing in all three movies in the game is pretty fun.

Unfortunately, an endless army of small, annoying animals constantly nip at your heels and interrupt your jumps. These irritating creatures are present on every level, in the form of birds, bats, rats, and even jumping fish! In one stage you even have to contend with rock-dropping birds! C'mon now! You'll also deal with cheap hits like falling stalactites and spikes that rise from the ground, although you can often anticipate these. The difficulty is sky high, even on the so-called "easy" difficulty. Three cool 3D sequences provide a welcome respite from the side-scrolling mayhem. These manage to convey an amazing sense of speed while effectively recreating harrowing raft, mine cart, and biplane scenes. Between levels you're treated to photo-quality stills from the movies and presented with a password. It doesn't play nearly as well as it looks, but for gamers with enough skill and patience, Indiana Jones offers a lot of adventure for the money.
