: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade for the PC was actually what made me

: The Fate of Atlantis is a much better game for these reasons :
: 1 - it has much better graphics, user interface and sound.
: The CD Rom version is a full talkie, I havent played it with speech
: so someone else may be able to tell you if indys voice is a good impression
: 2 - It has a completely 'original' plot. - Not being based on a movie
: the makers had better freedom. The plot is very good, even though it's
: a bit of a rip off of raiders at times(but I think this fact is
: a good point rather than a bad one)
: In the end of the day if you havent either of the games I would

: go near Fate of Atlantis until you have finished it.
: However, if you are only buying one, get Atlantis

The Last Crusade is pretty fun, and there are similarities between the two, but if it were just one, it would have to be Fate of Atlantis. Everything said above is true. The voice of Indy isn't too bad either, of course, if I hear Indy mutter "I don't think that will work." One more time, I may just trade in my bull whip (yeah, right!!). Not to mention that there are three paths to take in Fate of Atlantis (they do cross over sometimes). Anyways, let us know what you choose.
