4.0 out of 5 stars Timeline
Excellent graphics and sound and absorbing story line, although deviating somewhat from the book (which I loved) Gameplay can be a bit tricky and the puzzles difficult (though that might be 'cos I'm rubbish at adventures) Good atmospherics but you need to be patient and think it through. It's no good just charging in, you'll die !!

1.0 out of 5 stars IT MADE ME FEEL ILL, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!
Absolute pap... lasted about 2 hours at the most, so very expensive. No challenge whatsoever, as silly bint follows you around telling you what you should do next. Even made me feel ill while playing it, as movement very weird, and gameplay nearly impossible as you control where you look with the mouse, and where you move with the cursors. Obviously made for the whole...

1.0 out of 5 stars IT MADE ME FEEL ILL, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!, 16 July 2001

Absolute pap... lasted about 2 hours at the most, so very expensive. No challenge whatsoever, as silly bint follows you around telling you what you should do next. Even made me feel ill while playing it, as movement very weird, and gameplay nearly impossible as you control where you look with the mouse, and where you move with the cursors. Obviously made for the whole family so ultimately satisfies no-one, as puzzles not hard enough, and no-one gets killed, they just surrender when you've hit them twice. If Crichton actually had anything to do with this, he should be ashamed. I cannot honestly describe the disappointment we felt at this game, and cannot urge you strongly enough to avoid it.

Good while it lasts, except it doesn't last. Can be completed within two hours with time for a coffee break, and time to walk the dog. Save your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 18 Jun. 2001

This review is from: Michael Crichton's Timeline (Video Game)
This game is not a challenging one. I'm not experienced at this type of game yet I still finished it in under 3 hours. Those puzzles which could have been tricky, and often those which were simple, offered no difficulty as they were explained to you by your companions. All the fights were too easy (especially when you had the bow and arrow) and even the main bad guys submitted quickly. The game didn't seem to go anywhere and when it finished I was totally surprised as I had been expecting a lot more. Unless you are a big fan of the book or this type of game (and about 7 years old)I would'nt recomend this to anyone.
