Dès les premières minutes, on est pris dans le jeu, on ne lâche plus son joystick et on a tout de suite envie de recommencer, ne serait-ce que pour voir la structure des autres niveaux, de plus, les programmeurs ont pensé à intégrer un «Construction Kit» qui permettra aux plus fous de créer leurs propres niveaux.

(CD-ROM version)
Nachdem bereits vor wenigen Monaten die Neuauflage des Klassikers für Furore sorgte, schiebt Sierra noch eins noch: Die CD-ROM-Version bietet eine vollständige Übersetzung ins Deutsche und vor allem jede Menge gute CD-Musik. Sonst hat sich nichts geändert, auch die Levelanzahl (immerhin 150 Stück) ist gleichgeblieben.

Mit Loderunner - The Legend Returns ist Sierra eine phantastische Neuauflage eines zwölf Jahre alten Spieleklassikers gelungen. Nachdem man sich durch satte 150 Levels gespielt hat, ist der Spaß - dank des Game Generators - noch lange nicht zu Ende. Ein rundum gelungenes Remake! Loderunner macht süchtig.

Bien que conçu par un studio américain, ce jeu est uniquement disponible au Japon pour des raisons obscures. Mais il est presque en anglais ce qui permet d’y jouer facilement. Ce remake s’avère excellent et indispensable pour les amateurs d’action/réflexion.

Because LODERUNNER is such a clean, sharp reincarnation of the original Broderbund classic, it makes reviewing the game somewhat tricky. Do I review it as if it's the first time I've ever seen LODERUNNER? If so, then it is a wonderful, wonderful product, a true benchmark of sleek, elegant and simple game design. If I'm to review the game in the context of late 1994 game design, then it falls a little short, being only a rehash of an earlier design, and not pushing the gaming envelope for action/arcade games one bit. Perhaps I'm searching for an answer in purely analytical terms when the answer is much more simple, much more “from the gut.” The true measure of any game is how fun it is. That's really all you need: just a fun game to while away the hours. I've seen countless games over the past years, yet only a few rise to the occasion of being games I want to play after the review if over. LODERUNNER is one of those games.

Lode Runner är enkelhetens triumf och har massor av spelglädje. Det är välgjort, har bra ljud och är dessutom gjort med kärlek till originalet.

The fact is, you could buy a Commodore 64 to run the original Lode Runner for less than this, and, although the characters animate beautifully and the backgrounds are lush, you're still looking at an incredibly simple game. For a tenner less it would get about 10 per cent more (because it's a great game), but at this price you should perhaps think twice before parting with your cash.

So this is what it comes down to: do you love Lode Runner? If so, you're going to want to pick this game up, as it's just what you remember. However, if you don't give a crap about retro-gaming and could care less about this game, don't bother.

À la rédaction, on attendait tous avec impatience cette version de Lode Runner. Pour notre plus grand malheur, Sierra n'a pas jugé bon de la remettre au goût du jour. Les graphismes sont toujours aussi riquiquis. Lode Runner PC possède trop peu d'innovations pour qu'on puisse le considérer comme un hit.
