Highlander: The Last of the Macleods is a video game developed by Lore Design Limited and published by Atari for the Atari Jaguar CD-ROM home console system. It was released on October 30, 1995. The video game is based on Highlander: The Animated Series and was given the now defunct "Kids To Adults" (6+) rating by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
The player controls Quentin MacLeod, the young Immortal on a quest to defeat the evil Kortan who has murdered his mother and kidnapped the people of his village. The gameplay is similar to that of Alone in the Dark or Resident Evil in that the player character moves through a world of pre-rendered 3D environments (viewed from many fixed camera angles), battles monsters, collects items, and solves puzzles. The game used motion capture in the character animation. The game features clips from the Highlander animated series to move the storyline along.

- Miklos Perlos as Quentin MacLeod
- Ben Campbell as Ramirez
- Lawrence Bayne as Kortan
