GamePro (US) (Dec, 1993)
Sadly, this movie legend winds up in the same pile of failed movie carts as E.T. and Back to the Future. Perhaps Indy will play better as a hand-held. If not, maybe it's better that this is the Last Crusade.
Graphically, the game is a disappointment with some decent backgrounds, but the characters and Indiana himself are sprites with a singular color tone and strange, noticeable outlines. The singular music track is the main theme from the movie, which you might as well listen to on your VHS movie copy instead of hearing it via this misfire of a game.
Total! (Germany) (Dec, 1993)
Hier scheint weder der fast typische Fall vorzuliegen, in dem ein paar ganz schlaue Leute mit einem zugkräftigen Namen schnelles Geld verdienen möchten. Manch ein Programmierer sollte sich langsam schäbig vorkommen, so etwas überhaupt abzuliefern.

Wer ein unterirdisch schlechtes Spiel sucht oder einen eingefleischten Indiana Jones-Fans zum Flennen bringen will, dem sei dieses Modul sehr ans Herz gelegt, alle anderen machen besser einen riesigen Bogen um diesen Titel.

Perhaps there is no way to explain this game’s existence properly. Certainly Ubisoft has moved on to greener pastures, lined with Rayman corpses. Allow me to summarize, then: Last Crusade is a whirlwind of poor developmental choices, undoubtedly rushed to a dying market to satisfy absolutely no one.
The Video Game Critic (May 23, 2008)
This is definitely the most hideous game I've seen on the NES. Indy looks even goofier than he did in Temple of Doom, if that's at all possible. The film provides for plenty of interesting stage ideas, but this shoddy game even makes jumping the cars on a circus train seem dull! The first stage, entitled "Exploring the caves", is about as unimaginative as you can get, with all the obligatory cheap hits including falling stalactites. It's hard to grab onto ropes, and fights with bad guys amount to trading punches until somebody falls over. The controls are so stiff that I might as well be controlling C3PO. Last Crusade is one truly pathetic piece of trash, and for a 1994 game (by LucasArts no less), it has absolutely no excuse.
