The Land Before Time: Return to the Great Valley (c) Sound Source Interactive

Introduction / Plot:

The Land Before Time: Return to the Great Valley is a game based on Steven Spielberg's ever-popular animated video franchise "The Land Before Time". In game u will take the role of those kiddie dinosaurs we all hate and strictly avoid to respect. The plot of course is pretty basic, the kiddies lost way home and they'll have to fight their way back. The movie/introduction is really well done, altough you will pretty discover the kiddie target of the whole game.

Gameplay / Controls: 6/10

Controls are what you expect out of a 3d game, you will feel like you're moving croc considering they even have a tail hit. So you will move around with the pad and use the four keys for various actions. Every single dinosaur has his special ability, so the keys will change for each one, tough jumping and 'tailing' will be common to all the dinokiddies. Pretty easy puzzles all around :/

Sound / Music 6/10

Ok, you have ruined another game! Even if the game is overall not that great, and even if music can be passed on, well speech is mad bad done, most of the dinokiddies talk like having an handicap, whilst the flying thingie that is supposed to help you trough your way is really done both so bad and so repeating that you will soon start to hate him, and eventually you will fly from the game just to avoid listening to his hints!

Graphics 7/10

Movies are really well done, of course that should have not been to hard considering the game comes from a cartoon, instead the 3d game itself is lacking some nicer textures and effects. All in all it will feel like you're playing a 3 years old 3d-platformer instead of Spyro II or the really awesome Midievil II.

Overall 5/10
Well, decent 3d game, should really get a kiddie target, prolly if you have anyone into your family looking at the cartoon, well he will get really excited at this game. Looking after the name u could hope for a great adventure game, sorry u have meet a money-making kiddie-target 3d platformer.
