Just Adventure
As one who appreciates the commitment that Cryo has made to the proliferation of the adventure game genre and a believer that Cryo is making strong efforts and investments to continue to improve the development of their total adventure game package (story, interaction, graphics, music, sound, acting, and puzzle elements are all included), I am putting Atlantis II on my list of the five best adventure games of 1999, along with Faust, which I reviewed earlier. This is a relatively long game in terms of the time that it will take to play, especially if you minimize your use of a walkthrough, but if you enjoy traveling to ancient civilizations and becoming immersed in an engrossing storyline, supported by excellent graphics and integrated, logical puzzles, then you will be both thrilled and challenged by the mysteries of Atlantis II.
Tap-Repeatedly/Four Fat Chicks
Beyond Atlantis is an enchanting diversion for those players who delight in exploring strange lands, wallowing in glorious scenery, and diving into fiendish puzzles. For the experienced gamer, this will fix any Timelapse/Crystal Key/Qin jones you may have.
Just Adventure
These failings are a pity, because the good stuff in Atlantis II is so very good that, if the whole game had operated on such a high level, Cryo would have had a masterpiece on its hands. As it stands, however, Atlantis II is merely fabulous, gorgeous, imaginative, and not to be missed. Maybe we'll get a masterpiece tomorrow, but Atlantis II is plenty to celebrate today.
Beyond Atlantis sends you on a quest to discover the true fate of the lost city. The adventure game features a fully immersive environment and heavy character interaction, but it is hampered by poor quality visuals and a few technical quirks.
Ultimately, Beyond Atlantis is a thoughtful and challenging game that will devour hours and fill the void until Myst VI: Ceaseless Self-Flagellation ships. It is a good game in its format, better than Riven because of its engaging puzzles and attractive scenery. If this kind of thing is your kind of thing, then this is the right thing.
