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.[1] It was released on October 30, 1995.[2] 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.[1][2]

Storyline[edit]

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.[1][2] 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.[2][3] The game features clips from the Highlander animated series to move the storyline along.[1][2]
