Reviewer's comments

"As I see I reviewed it, I obviously played the original version by the Vagrant, but I’ve forgotten it to such an extent that I can’t say how faithful a remake this is. Certainly, on reading my review for the original, I can see that the compys, raptors and T-Rex are still present and correct, but beyond that I’m blank. The gameplay is uncomplicated and the whole thing is quite short. The surroundings are attractive and well made and as the author states he was trying to present the level in a more up to date way, I would say he’s succeeded rather well." - Jay (14-May-2019)

"I really liked this, very well done, from a 2000 game for a remake and very well done and reworked but based on the original and excellent, I played the original remake + and yes the remake surprized me, the sounds true to the original, not that I seje pulls bag but it was a fun gameplay for those who like this type of class like me, for me the remakes are essential. I finished 100% in 2h, enjoy any free time here ....." - PedroTheGamer (12-May-2019)

"The original Journey to Sumeria was little more than an attractive looking test level with little to do in terms of gameplay. This remake generally improves on that, while adding more in the way of enjoyable tasks to accomplish. There still isn't anything difficult or indeed overwhelming going on, but it definitely passes the time well enough and it doesn't ever get extremely tedious either, which is always a positive in my book. You also get a range of seven secret skulls to go for and a well thought out boss battle of sorts against a T-Rex. 35 minutes of pleasant enough raiding, and a creditable first effort." - Ryan (12-May-2019)

"This level is a good example that you actually can remake a level if you obey the rules of the game. A very nicely designed and atmospheric game overall, with mostly clean texturing, good lighting that only sometimes was a bit too grim and some nice cameras standing out as well. The gameplay won't win any price in its simplicity (this level could basically be a tutorial level). At least a few traps and small puzzles might've been inserted. But at least there is no tedious part in it and you can invest some extra time in finding the seven secrets, of which some require extra tours through this level, others are just lying in plain sight. The builder has done a good job overall but there could be more up to this level in my opinion. Finished in 20 minutes." - manarch2 (11-May-2019)
