VideoGame (Jun, 1991)
Nesta sensacional aventura, você deve ajudar o herói Indiana Jones a encontrar o Santo Graal, o cálice sagrado.
The graphics are great, with buckets of colour on both the action and intermission screens, and the sprites whizz around the screen at a great rate of knots. The main tune is a very nice rendition of the title theme, and there's lots of nicely done spot FX thrown in for good measure. Indy walks and runs around like a thing possessed, punching, jumping, kicking and whipping, and is very well animated indeed, as are all the sprites. The game is so involved, but allows you to skip around certain parts of the game, so you can dictate how the difficulty curve escalates! Quite frankly, this has got to be one of the best Nintendo games to date, and you'd have to be an utter pillock or someone who absolutely hates Harrison Ford to miss it.

Es wird Ihnen möglich sein, durch alle Level ziemlich gut voran zu kommen, wenn Sie sich an die richtige Reihenfolge der Trittsteine gegen Ende des letzten Levels erinnern. Dieses Spiel ist ein definitives Muß für alle Indy Fans.
This game is made for the film’s fans, treating them to familiar music and images. It does take liberties with the story that might bother some, but offers varied and interesting gameplay.
Die NES-Version ist technisch leider nicht allzu überzeugend. Bei Grafik und Sound hätten sich die Entwickler etwas mehr einfallen lassen können. So reicht‘s bei dieser Umsetzung nur zu einer befriedigenden Gesamtnote.
Unlike some movie adaptations, this game is more of a series of arcade-style games than it is a complete adventure.
One of two NES games based on the 1989 film, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade has good music, decent graphics, nice cut-scenes and a branching storyline that closely follows the movie. The only thing missing is actual gameplay. Although you get to ride on a motorcycle, solve puzzles, explore castles and beat up thugs, each of these concepts is poorly handled. Indy moves at a snail's pace in the platforming levels, and fighting is much more difficult than it should be. The overall quality of the presentation is notable, but there's no real substance to back it up.
The Video Game Critic (Aug 03, 2008)
Last Crusade's highlight is the motorcycle chase stage. As you zoom up a vertically-scrolling road, you'll need to carefully adjust your speed to avoid hazards and leap over chasms. Best of all, you can whip soldiers that pull up alongside you. The final stage is pretty good too, taking you through the three challenges of the grail. Intermissions are displayed between stages with nice illustrations and text dialogue from the movie. In terms of audio, the suspenseful music that plays in the castle scene is good, but the rendition of the Indiana Jones theme sounds totally off-key. The less said about the techno music in the ship stage, the better. Last Crusade has a lot of issues, but at least it makes an effort.

If you’re smart, you’ll whip your enemies instead of beating them with punches or kicks, but the enemies have to be lined up correctly with the whip in order for them to get killed. Actually, if you want to be really smart, you could drive out to the New Mexico desert with a shovel, and bury this game in a landfill next to all of the Atari E.T. cartridges. Spielberg would want it that way.
