You, as in all other Lemmings games, are responsible for leading hordes of lemmings to safety through hazardous environments. However, this installment goes just that little bit further by introducing the lemmings to 80 new 3-dimensional levels!

Once you've played this you will be saving the cute little lemmings in your sleep!

The Good
This game brings lemmings away from the old 2D. You have to guide them in mazes and tunnels (where you have to see from the lemmings point of view) The training levels are best played through before you start on the main game even if you have played lemmings before, this is completely different. They are informative rather than patronizing. Unlike the other games at the end of a level you will see all the lemmings you saved cheering and all the ones that died booing and shaking their heads. nice touch.

The Bad
Some levels are rather hard, but that didn't stop me. Careful using the exploders as they don't go through everything.

The Bottom Line
Play this! it is good but complete attention is required or some of your new friends may meet a messy end. They can drown, burn, be squished and much more... save the lot, it's rewarding to see how many you saved.

Brings a whole new dimension to the world of Lemmings.

The Good
The best thing about this game, I think, was the way the 3D worlds have been designed. The levels just look great and there are also many different themes to the levels. Some examples of these different themes are Egypt, Candy and Space. The music and sound effects in the game are also outstanding.

The Bad
Some of the later levels in the game are very hard and I couldn't complete them without using the answers downloaded from the Internet. Another annoying problem was that when I bought a new computer I was unable to have any sound effects in the game, although the music was still present.

The Bottom Line
Overall the idea of bringing Lemmings into 3D is a good idea and has provided many hours of enjoyment. However, it becomes less enjoyable when you encounter some of the later levels.
