Der Schwierigkeitsgrad des Games ist eher auf Jump&Run-Anfänger zugeschnitten. Die erfahrenen Gamer unter euch werden das Spiel trotz der 13 Level und der Bonusstages relativ schnell durchgespielt haben. Dennoch ist Tarzan ein Titel, der allen Jump&Run-Freunden und Disney-Fans aufgrund der wirklich toll in Szene gesetzten Filmumsetzung eine Menge Spaß machen wird.

You can't argue with quality. Tarzan looks, feels, and sounds great. Hardcore gamers will find it a bit too easy, but the game really is designed for a younger audience. This makes a good case for why sidescrolling games should never be abandoned.

Auch wenn mir nicht bekannt wäre, dass Tarzen von Disney umgesetzt wurden ist, würde ich auf den ersten Blick erkennen, aus welchem Studio dieses Jump & Nun stammt. Die spielerischen Ähnlichkeiten zu Aladin oder allen anderen Disney-Hüpfern ist einfach zu deutlich. Jedoch gelang es den Programmierern mit der dreidimensionalen Grafik einige interessante Neuerungen zu integrieren. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist dabei sehr zielgruppenorientiert ausgefallen. Auch Kleinkinder von 3 bis 4 Jahren kommen mit diesem Titel gut zurecht, ohne an einer Stelle langfristig hängen zu bleiben. Wer aber alle versteckten Objekte finden will, ist längere Zeit beschäftigt.
Recommended for the younger audience and those who are willing to forgive an extremely short, simple quest in favor of a fun-filled few hours. And if nothing else, a rental is a must for platformer fans and Tarzan admirers alike.
La réalisation du jeu est excellente, la N64 semble ici donner sa pleine mesure : graphismes somptueux et travaillés, animation rapide et fluide, zooms et changements d’angles de vue, bande son de grande qualité, tant sur les bruitages que sur les musiques, jouabilité très appréciable, malgré un petit rebond dans les commandes. L’aventure est variée et belle, les développeurs ont vraiment réussi là un très bon jeun que les bambins devraient goûter goulument.
Without the intended replay value, Tarzan becomes a very thin game indeed. While I wouldn't rule out a rental, it hardly seems worth the purchase when there are better platformers out there. Unless, of course, you're a big Phil Collins fan.
However, all in all, Tarzan on the N64 is a pleasant surprise that rises from its rough spots with a fair amount of success. While the game is not particularly mind-stumping or sophisticated, it is challenging and does require a good amount of skill, whether in jumping from place to place, knowing where hidden items might be, or fighting belligerent leopards who lunge a lot. Even if movie-license games turn you off, this game is an exception and worth taking a look at. If you can't stand Disney and have no interest in the franchise, this game is still worth looking at.
Daily Radar
There's something comforting in the play of a side-scrolling platform game. The rhythms and patterns of jumping and throwing often make playing a form of meditation. The new Disney's Tarzan game enters the side-scrolling, 2.5D world with little innovation but a fun and well-designed environment. Control is loose, and the play area could be larger, but good graphics and good sound make Disney's Tarzan moderately enjoyable. It's not exceptionally exciting, but the target audience is someone younger than you, no matter what your age.
