Pitfall The Big Adventure is a Adventuring game available on the Wii. It can be played in Thirdperson modes.
Pitfall The Big Adventure is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Pitfall The Big Adventure can be played in a Thirdperson mode. Third Person games view the world from over the right shoulder of the character being controlled. This enables you to see the character you are controlling as well as their surrounds. Although not as immersive as first person, third person games enable more complex moves and interactions with the environment.
We have our reporters and community keeping an eye on Pitfall The Big Adventure for you, and we'll keep you up to date with the latest developments as they happen.
Pitfall The Big Adventure threatens to regurgitate the old platformer, but through boxy visuals and ported gameplay emerges a better game than expected. The Wii needs more adventures like this, but on crowded shelves this is likely to go unnoticed.
Franchises refuse to die. Any title with even the merest hint of a repackaged income will always try to cash in on that. Yet while the original Pitfall holds a strong place in older gamers' hearts, I can't help but question its relevance today. My reservations alter nothing, of course, so after numerous attempts to revitalize the twenty-eight year old brand we are finally treated to the first Pitfall game of this console generation - even if it is a port of a six year old PS2 game.
Pitfall The Big Adventure is another game in Activision's Fun4All series. Although packaged in a similar fashion, these games fluctuate in their best audience. Here we have a game that provides a genuine adventure experience rather than a simple set of minigames like Block Party Wii or World Championship Sports Wii.
