Wo immer Tulio und Miguel auch hinstolpern, den schrägen und herzzerreißenden Humor kann ihnen niemand absprechen. Die deutsche Sprachausgabe gehört für mich zum Besten, was ich auf der PlayStation bisher gehört habe. Zusammen mit der dreidimensionalen Zeichentrickgrafik erzeugen die Entwickler ein Flair, das dem des Kinofilms sehr nahe kommt. Zwar orientieren sich erfahrene Abenteurer immer noch in Richtung Discworld Noir, doch für eine atmosphärische Tour mit den beiden Halunken bleibt auf jeden Fall Zeit. Gold und Ruhm: Der Weg nach El Dorado solltet ihr euch auf jeden Fall einmal anschauen.

This could have been El Dorado’s masterstroke, but unfortunately the game ends up suffering from the same problems as the film. It just doesn’t know who it’s aimed at. The simplified interface allows anyone to just pick it up and play, while the actual problems aren’t visual enough to reward a tot or tough enough to test a teen. Still, the game’s negative points can bee seen as a boon. If you fancy an adventure that doesn’t test you half as much as Revolution’s other titles, while keeping up with their usual quality – this could be it. Hell, at least it hasn’t been totally destroyed by the vocal talents of Elton John.

Mit einer genaueren Steuerung und ohne die nervigen technischen Probleme wäre Der Weg nach El Dorado das perfekte Spiel für Kinder, die erste Erfahrungen mit dem Adventure-Genre machen wollen. Leider sind die technischen Macken so schwerwiegend, dass sie den Spielspaß stark einschränken. Für Zockveteranen kommt das Game aufgrund der lächerlich leichten Rätsel ohnehin nicht in Frage. Die Playstation-Abenteuer von Tulio und Miguel können vor allem durch die witzigen Dialoge und die spannende Story ein paar Punkte gutmachen.

Pour l'Or et la Gloire : La Route d'Eldorado est une adaptation plus ou moins réussie. Le jeu reprend le scénario original du film et est esthétiquement abouti. Mais outre le fait que l'aventure soit trop courte, le gameplay se montre lourd et pénible, ce qui empêche finalement d'apprécier pleinement le titre. Si vous arrivez à passer outre ces gros défauts, vous découvrirez une aventure peu banale et vraiment amusante.

If you're a big fan of graphical adventure games, then you might want to consider picking this up because it's one of the few new games in the genre that you'll find on PlayStation. However, don't do it expecting to get a good game, because it's just not one. The game's pacing is a bit too slow and tedious and the puzzles can be more nonsensical than challenging or difficult. While the voice acting is sensational and it does look pretty in some areas, these aren't good enough to warrant picking up this title.

For the most part, Gold and Glory The Road To El Dorado is little more than a below average adventure game, though at times it will have you laughing out loud. Still, if you're 12 years old and Mom won't buy you the game with the guns, then this is a relatively nonviolent and enthralling adventure that I think even adults can sink their teeth into.
GameSpot (Jun 24, 2001)
Gold & Glory: The Road to El Dorado is a simplistic, extremely short experience, with abundant flaws that outweigh its few redeeming features. While this game may be marketed to younger moviegoers and El Dorado enthusiasts, the simplicity of the adventure is nullified by the obtuse nature of the control and gameplay. Fans of the movie may want to rent this game, if only to watch the cutscenes and experience the story again for novelty's sake.
The Road to El Dookie is more like it. I can see it now. Some poor kid is going to get this game for Christmas, and after seeing how incredibly ripped off he got, he will eventually grow up to be a bitter old man. This game is targeted toward children, but I highly doubt a child, let alone an adult, really wants a choppy and incredibly slow point-and-click adventure.
