Though it employs the same engine as Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis has the distinct advantage of being completely original and new to the gamer. A lot of situations are, of course, based on the Indiana Jones character from the series of films, and, as is typical with Indiana Jones, the fate of the world is at stake. Once again racing against the Nazis, along with Sophia Hapgood (a psychic, and his love interest), Indy must discover the location and secrets of the lost city of Atlantis. Though there are three different paths through the game (one with Indy alone solving puzzles, one with Indy and Sophia, and one dealing primarily with Indy fighting), they are all essentially the same game with the major elements in different orders, and only a few minor differences in puzzles and situations before the portion in Atlantis, which is identical regardless of the path chosen. If you don't mind that, you will probably have fun with this very movie-like game.
