If you like the Indiana Jones series and wish to see everything that are related to his numerous adventures Worldwide, this is one of the stones that you have to tread on. I have played and finished the 2003 Lucas Arts game Emperor's Tomb before and did not hesitate to buy this 1992 game in year 2016, once i heard that it has completely unique set of events which were not replicated in any Indy film/game before or after. I wanted to finish the game by not reading any of hints or tips from a walkthrough guide -and i succeeded-, because adventuring through the untold dullness of life is THE INHERENT core of Indy adventures. This game gives that unique feeling of being an Indiana Jones even with 1992 graphics and sounds. Because, the feeling of playing Dr. Jones does not rely on eye-candy graphics, but lies with finding whatever way to wrestle through life even if it goes somewhere that was not intended initially.

Once the game starts, be careful about your selected words towards other people -be it an enemy, comrade, or foreigner- because it affects the storyline. If you want to hear all quotes, know that we can save our progress anytime we want. So, the game does not punish us needlessly. If you stuck at a level and not finding a proper way to go further, i recommend NOT to rush a walkthrough guide quickly. I somehow figured out many challenges by trying to act in the same manner as Harrison Ford we know. IMO, the game scenario has outdone even the well-known Indy films. All things considered, buy this game if you know and follow Indy franchise and/or want to travel in time to see what a PC game feels like in early 90's. Either way, you won't be disappointed.

In 1995, at the tender age of 12, I got my first x86 PC: a Pentium 286 16MHz (can't remember how much RAM or anything else). My father had a 486 in his office, and I'd get to play with it sometimes, but not long and not often. Still, my first gaming PC was a glorious machine for me at the time. Among the pirated games (hey, third-world country, no Steam or Amazon, sue me) I used to play (Master of Magic, Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max, Leisure Suit Larry, Ultima Underworld, Alone in the Dark, Doom, SimFarm, etc...), there was one LucasArts point-and-click adventure in particular that filled me with a sense of wonder and even awe: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. I wasn't a huge fan of Indiana Jones, but this game was bigger than the character. My English was barely rudimentary at the time, and I couldn't really follow much of the story and the humour. But the sense of wonder and awe was there from the start, and it remains to this day at the rugged age of 33, on my nth playthrough. That's why I recently included this game in my list of #7FaveGames on Twitter: while I do have very fond memories of all the other LucasArts adventures and other games from that period, this game will always have a special place in my memories.

In many ways, it is a classic LucasArts adventure in terms of gameplay, humour, cartoonish villains, and several tough and sometimes questionable puzzles. But all the mythology behind Atlantis, the clandestine translation of Plato's dialogue that you have to decipher, the eerie and sometimes Lovecraftian atmosphere when you finally reach the submersed city... the artists and writers who made this game were onto something here. It was and remains a unique, wonderful game.

This might be my nostalgia speaking, but to me this will forever be the TRUE Indiana Jones 4.

If you have any interest in Indy, you have to play this game. The plot, the mystery mixing history and mysticism, the nice touches of humor, the nazi villains, some nice action and twists... Arguably, it is sometimes even more "Indiana Jones" than the original trilogy movies themselves!

This game also has a pretty unique feature for a retro adventure game : the story actually branches at one point, giving you very different playthroughs. Some puzzles are also randomized. This helps replayability a lot.

Bearing with the old graphics of this game is entirely worth it. Unless you truly can't stand seeing some pixels, the dated technology should not stop you from enjoying a true Indiana Jones adventure.

If you read this, you care about the Indy franchise, don't you? Then just play this. You won't regret it.

For starters, I was not born around the time of old point and click adventures like LucasArts', but i would imagine that many people played them. why? Because LucasArts made what are quite possibly the best story driven point and click games. Where to begin? The graphics are as they were 20 years ago, and yet they still feel fresh, so nostalgia will hit hard with older gamers. I have not played the original, so I am not sure if this version is different in any way, but it has the original music, voice acting and graphics, so I assume it's the same. Even though i was born around the time where they started moving on to making more Star Wars games (which were mostly good, and one of them is one of my most favourite games of all time), I still wanted to try these. Last year, I saw a show with a segment about LucasArts' history, and they talked about games like Loom, Indiana Jones And the Fate Of Atlantis, Full Throttle, The Secret Of Monkey Island and many more. And I always like games with a big focus on story lines, and I decided to try them since it would be a break from Call Of Judy or whatever generic shooters are called these days. So I found a bundle with a few of LucasArts' games, and while the controls are a bit fiddly at first, I think Loom, The Dig and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis will keep me playing 'till the credits roll because of the stories that just make you reflect after the end. It's like reading a book, you say you will read one chapter, and then you read the whole book. It's games like these that make me wish I was born in 1990. Nowadays it's all about pwning n00bs in halozone with masterchef or something. Sorry for the long review about me saying how much i like the stories in these games, But after all, the one thing that sticks around in your mind about a game, is it's story. Thank you for reading.

Edit: Another thing about their games, is that the writing is so good, It's always full of humour.

The Indiana Jones game that wasn't based on a movie and that turned out to be better than the real Indiana Jones 4. I don't think I need to say more.

Disclaimer: No refrigerators were nuked during the playing or reviewing of this game.

This game was great! The game looks great, for a classic LucasArt adventure game, and the voice acting is actually pretty spot on. The puzzles can be a bit challenging, but luckily there isn't a moment where you have to start the game over because you didn't get that one item you were supposed to get in the last section (Shame on you, Last Crusade). Also, there are three different paths to beat this game: the Team Path, The Wits Path, or The Fists Path. I personally chose the Team Path, because then the puzzles aren't too demanding, since you have help, and you don't have to worry about the fighting system. Also, Indy has to have his lady :). The fighting system is greatly improved from Indy's Last Crusade, but thats really not saying much, since it couldn't have gotten worse. Not only are there multiple ways to accomplish tasks, but there are two different endings, depending on what kind of Indy you want to be. Overrall, this was a great game, that I know I will play again for the different paths. OH, and different paths mean visiting different locations!
Honestly, this should have been the fourth movie. They would have to have tweaked it just a bit, but this should have been the film. The love/hate relationship between Indy and Sophia is real and genuine (I loved seeing Indy grab her for that "we saved the world from the Nazis kiss"). Also, its Indy against the Nazis, the ones we love to see him fight. The script is strong and believable. Just a fun great game that all adventure gamers should pick up, at any cost.

UPDATE: My play time is not accurate, since I played this game on the SCUMM engine. I used my Steam file and loaded it to SCUMM, which greatly improves how it looks and sounds. My overrall playtime would be between 6-7 hours for a first time.

Another LucasArts classic point and click game. I played the game when it first came out back in the early 90s. One part I thought was great about the game was the different paths Indy could take that would ultimately lead to Atlantis, providing some replayability. Now all that needs to be added to Steam is the Day of the Tentacles and Sam & Max Hit the Road!

One of my top three games of all times. Spend endless hours with it on my 286 PC back in the day and still want to replay it from time to time now in 2016. It is a pixel art masterpiece combined with amazing story and the expected humour from lucas arts adventure game. I highly recommend it to everyone who is a fan of the movies or just like point and click adventures, or appreciates pixel art, or...

My favorite point and click adventure from childhood. I love the 1930s, global travel adventure genre, and I love WWII, so this game really did it for me. Hard as hell at points, though. I needed a guide book as a kid and I still do.

I owned both the original release on a 3.5 Floppy and the CD version. The steam version works wonders and plays as if i were playing it on my old 386 pc! Recommend playing and trying out all the differnt story variations which i was surpised there were so many even when 1st playing 24 years ago.

For those of you who loves oldschool point and click, this is the ultimate choice, hours on hours of fun, braintwisting and hopeless puzzels. I tried this for the first time back in 93, just fell in love with the game, but i got SO stuck at one point that i gave up, now i have tried again and finished it.

I LOVE the original game.
The soundtrack was mystical and evoked wonder; the game's sound effects were well timed and fit the objects and actions.

THIS -is not- that game. Someone stripped all of that away and replaced it with a poorly made midi sountrack, and almost none of the games sound effects are present.

The original title had an ambiance like no other; this re-release is a poor representation of the work of talented programmers who made an amazing title back when pixelized point and click adventures first hit the gaming world.

Don't waste your money on this digital release.
Find the original game on CD or a .zip file, and download SCUMMVirtualMachine to play it in it's high quality original format.
