Atlantis: The Lost Empire: Trial by Fire :: PC Game Review

Milo & The Brave Crew.
A secret map, where does it lead?

Ancient writings say that Atlantis sunk in one day and one night. This game will make you wish it had stayed sunk. You play as Milo Thatch - the brainiac explorer who's looking for the lost city of Atlantis - it's up to you to lead him to it. If this is what being an adventurer is like I'll pass, thanks.

The game is full of problems. The biggest one is the levels. They're tiny! You'll be able to finish any level in about five to 10 minutes with no worries. The puzzles aren't hard, the enemies are total wimps and unless you've seen the Disney movie Atlantis you won't know what's going on. You don't even feel like you're ever in danger, the hordes of enemies couldn't beat up stormtroopers, never mind a hero.


Disney


The sound is the best part of the game. The actual voices from the movie are used for the characters and the tunes and effects are pretty good.


Bottom Line:

Yet another big-name game bites the dust. Your best bet is to score the free demo CD if you want to try it. Disney's official Atlantis page has the info. Click the link to Atlantis on the left side of the oval and read the details on how to get your free CD.


How hard is the game?

The controls are easy to learn but awkward and the levels are too easy.

    Is Atlantis Real?

    • No way, it's make-believe.
    • Yup, we'll find it soon.
    • I don't know, but I'd like to live there if it is real.

    I'm pretty sure that EVERYONE knows that testingcheatsenabled true code. If you didn't, right here fellas. But there's MORE. Let me tell ya.  NOTE: Some of these only work for PC. I'm not sure about console as I've never actually tried.  familyfunds [lastname] [moneyamount]- get as much money  as you want.   freerealestate- enables you to buy ANY house you want (must be done in map mode otherwise it's useless)  Buydebug- lets you buy ANYTHING at all.  enableLlamas [on/off]- this one is personally my favorite due to how funny it is. It gives a message saying "Llamas enabled."  constrainFloorElevation [true/false]- allows all terrain adjustments regardless of objects, Sims and other structures on them.  Know some more?

    My favourite Pokemon is probably Magikarp, as when it evolves it is UNIMAGINABLY strong. I have one in Pokemon Red!
