Anyone remember Hook, the video game adaptation of the movie of the same name?

(Anyone remember the time when adventure games were seen as a good genre to adapt a major Hollywood movie?)

I do remember unsuccessfully trying to find this game back in the day. Anyone played it? Was it any good?

     

Duckman: Can you believe it? Five hundred bucks for a parking ticket?
Cornfed Pig: You parked in a handicapped zone.
Duckman: Who cares? Nobody parks there anyway, except for the people who are supposed to park there and, hell, I can outrun them anytime.

I actually played it recently, not getting very far. You’re not missing much. It looks much better than it is. The game simply lacks any sort of personality.

On-topic: didn’t even know this game existed. Graphics look decent, though. Was it released in 1991 together with the film, or later?

I’m somewhere in between you two. I thought the movie was rather ‘meh’, but Hoffman was indeed fantastic!

Yeah, it’s called a few years ago when Jurassic Park The Game came out.

I think there have been less movie adaptations in general. There used to be one for every major Hollywood film that came out: adventures, shooters, action platformers, RPGs.
