Highlander ist das erste "echte" Jaguar-CD-Spiel, welches eindrucksvoll die grafischen und akustischen Möglichkeiten des Jaguars zeigt und sich nicht vor diverse Saturn- und Playstation-Titeln zu verstecken braucht. Wenn ATARI weitere so qualitativ hochwertige Titel für den das Jaguar CD-ROM auf den Markt bringt, dann können wir beruhigt in die angeblich so düstere Zukunft blicken. Highlander ist als Trilogie geplant, ich freue mich schon auf die nächsten zwei Teile welche hoffentlich im Laufe des nächsten Jahres erscheinen werden.

All in all, Highlander left me feeling wistful for the old world, when people were strong and able to include nature in their most valued traditions. When the villages were populated by Healers, and Elders were sought out in hopes of their ageless advice. Although no change could ever see that world again, Highlander for the Jag CD breaks new ground in role-playing and comes amazingly close to bringing us the ultimate in experiencing part of the ancient lore that is our existence.

So what's the bottom line? If you are a fan of the TV series and you like beating your head against the wall for a number of hours before you getting to the enjoyable part of a game, go check it out. Otherwise, your best off passing this one by. Not a shining moment in the life of the Jaguar CD, and that's a real shame.

Das Spiel heißt "Highlander - The Last of the MacLeods" und Atari tat gut daran, dass es wirklich der Letzte war. Erschienen auf den Releaselisten Anfang 1996 noch Hinweise auf einen zweiten und dritten Teil, erblickten diese nie das Licht der Welt - was durchaus zu verstehen ist. Man merkt dem Spiel an, dass man etwas Gutes schaffen wollte, aber scheinbar beim Design der Steuerung hoffnungslos überfordert war. Das Booklet und die Credits weisen eine Menge Tester vor, nur was haben die bitte getestet? Die Steuerung offensichtlich nicht. So bleibt Highlander optisch nett aber unspielbar. Auch kein Jaguar CD Game, das empfohlen werden kann.

A mediocre old move has just become an awful new game for the Jaguar CD. Highlander is one of the lowlights for Atari's new system.

Highlander is beyond awful - it's embarrassing. Why is the main character's hair blonde in the cut-scenes, yet bright pink in the game?? Equally shameful is the box art, which depicts Highlander as a blonde woman in what appears to be a cheap Aquaman outfit. If Atari expected garbage like this to pass as a legitimate game, perhaps the company deserved its untimely fate.
