- Alternative Character Interpretation — Is Sternhart a thieving, arrogant Jerkass, or a respectable "fellow seeker" as he put it that is tragically Killed Off for Real?
- Hilarious in Hindsight: For all the chiding Crystal Skull got for revealing that the skull belong to interdimensional beings. The comic book of this game, made years before that movie, revealed the whole Atlantian society was inspired by aliens.
- No Problem with Licensed Games: Some fans even state that the game is better written than two of the films. It helps that the genre tends to parallel the pacing and writing structure of film more than other gaming genres (assuming you're not getting stuck), allowing for a story that can feel like the movies without relying on Gameplay and Story Segregation.
- Scrappy Mechanic: The balloon ride and the submarine-steering scenes. The fighting could also be considered this, since this is an Adventure Game, but most of the time it can be skipped by using the "sucker punch".
- "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: The voice acting is full of Dull Surprise and Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping. It's important to note that the voice acting was a bonus for people who had the correct hardware at the time.
- That One Level: Both the Balloon ride and the labyrinth navigation are disliked for being long and silent.
