Some impressive set pieces.
Varied locations across desert, jungle and ice.
A lot of weapons.
At times the game is quite pretty.
Using the torch to blind/hurt enemies is a nice mechanic.
Poor retelling of a story we've heard countless times before.
Boring, repetitive combat.
Plagued by glitches and invisible walls.
Puzzles run the gamut from overly simplistic to wholly nonsensical.
The torch idea was stolen from Alan Wake.
Collision detection is awful, for instance, shooting enemies at close range will sometimes cause bullets to pass through them like ghosts.
Exploration is basically a fetch quest.
Generic sarcastic protagonist.

You are James Quatermain, great-grandson of the famed Allan Quatermain, which is the main protagonist in King Solomon's Mines. When a former colleague ask for your help in recovering a dangerous artifact from the Nazi's, expect nothing but...-

Glitches, stereotypical characters, and dull combat betray any chance of Deadfall Adventures providing any real incentive for your troubles. Digging into this game yields not a rough-cut gem, but rather a lump of coal that should have stayed buried.30

Sadly, Deadfall Adventures is a game that attempted to gain a foothold in a genre where there are already well-established heavy hitters and failed. Naughty Dog are unlikely to be watching over their shoulder any time soon.40

Playing the game for the story may be understandable; but offering a multiplayer with little to no community following just shows how much attention this game is receiving. Pretending to be an “Indiana Jones” is fun, but I would likely consider other titles in the current price range.55

It’s clear that Farm 51 worked very hard on this title and it’s easily an improvement on the developer’s previous first person shooter effort. Despite a couple of flaws, Deadfall Adventures is still an enjoyable take on the genre, and the addition of puzzles makes it worth playing through to the end.50

Variations can remove environmental threats, but frankly if you choose those you might as well play Quake since these traps are the one thing that makes Deadfall Adventures’ multiplayer stand out. I think The Farm 51 are a bit hopeful to be honest – if I had trouble finding people to play Batman: Arkham Origins online with I haven’t got a prayer with this.76

In many games, you unlock ancient discoveries and acquire grand treasures as a reward. But not all tombs offer something grandiose, and a long trek down a musty corridor may sometimes yield disappointment.Deadfall Adventures is one such trek. The game...30

Deadfall Adventures fails in delivering an exciting action experience or a world worth exploring. Struggling to live up to its two greatest influences, the Quatermain novels and Indiana Jones, it is eclipsed in their shadows, unable to carve out an identity of its own.30

We wouldn’t recommend that you stay away from Deadfall, but it’s hard to recommend it too, especially as everything it features has already been done better elsewhere; and with the Christmas period coming up, saving your cash may end up being the wiser option.50

They exist purely to inject an action set piece where it clearly and logically does not fit. This sort of baffling design is not a new thing but as game narratives improve these dated examples can’t help but feel just that - dated.50
