Trivia

The second version of the game was made quite violent and gory, as requested by Steven Spielberg. For example, one of the characters would turn into a bloody corpse after entering a cave filled with acid. However, after receiving much criticism for some particularly violent and bloody scenes in his movie Jurassic Park (1993), Spielberg asked the design team to tone down the mood of the game, so that it would still be appropriate for children.

Decent, worth playing
12 January 2001 | by (San Carlos, CA) – See all my reviews

I liked this game quite a bit; the sounds and artwork created the right mood. I even went out and bought the soundtrack CD. There are some pretty tricky puzzles here, especially when you find those alien devices. It's tough I suppose to make stuff look different than what earth people would build yet make it intuitive as to its function.

One thing I'd improve: too often you want to interact with the other characters, and they say "I'm busy, leave me alone". This was handled much more naturally in other LucasArts games like "Fate of Atlantis" and "Sam and Max".
