After letting Tiertex develop a disappointing action game based on its The Last Crusade movie license, LucasArts wisely decided to develop the action game based on the original Fate of Atlantis adventure game on its own. The result is a fun, but VERY difficult isometic action game starring everyone's favorite archaelogist.

Being an action title, the game starts off where Indy is about to have an excuse to use his trusty whip: in Monte Carlo, after he recruited headstrong former student Sophie to his aid and determined the location of ancient discs needed to open the door to the lost city of Atlantis. Most action takes place in isometric view, although there are some variations along the way to keep up interest. There are even some adventure-game elements, such as Indy's inventory which you can fill with various objects to use (i.e. money to buy things). They are mostly easy though, and are there only to relieve the tension from knuckle-blistering action. Overall, this is a much better Indy action title than The Last Crusade, although the extremely tough difficulty level may discourage action newbies, and the color scheme is a bit too sepia-influenced for my taste. It's not the best action game your money can buy, but it's still pretty good.
