Lots of Fun mixed with Lots of Glitches

  • Summary: For fans of both the Indiana Jones films and avid video game players, the arrival of Indiana Jones and the Emerors Tomb was the event they had been waiting for a LONG time. Well the wait was finally over and we got a game that was a lot of fun but was unfortunately plagued with a LOT of glitces.

Just so-so

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this game, I really did. I loved Infernal Machine even though it looks so hopelessly dated graphically now. This one promised great things and the graphics are beautiful. On my machine they look like photographs. The fighting was fun for a little while but I found that it gets boring quickly and is so hard to control, Indy is always whacking away at a blank wall because the guy skidded sideways during the battle - see note below about the...

I hope Indy finds the game designers buried in the Tomb...

  • Summary: I've been playing the game for over a week now, and I quit whenever it gets me so angry I could smash the computer! The lack of saves and the extremely poor controls over Indy's movements as well as the terrible camera views really ruin this game! I have to buy a new keyboard after slamming my fists down on the keyboard so much... He doesn't jump or punch or roll when you hit the buttons, not all the time.

Quite good but did not go up to my expectations

  • Summary: Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine was no doubt a very good game. The puzzles and level design were ingenious. If there were any complaints, it was that some of the levels were too long and the action was clumsy. Despite having a totally unbelievable plot (ancient mechanical machines from ethereal beings?), it was still interesting. So then comes Emperor's Tomb. Unfortunately, lucasarts took what was good in the previous game and made it worse.

  • Excerpt: ***DISCLAIMER*** I have moved over this review from my GameFAQs account where I go by the name ThePreacher. You may have also seen 1 or 2 of my reviews on imdb.com but I just thought I'd give a heads up! Enjoy the review! ***End Disclaimer*** This seriously is an awesome game, the best Indy game since ''Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine''. This game reeks of effort. Game play: Never a dull moment, the developers obviously worked hardest on this aspect of the game.
  • Pros: Good game, great graphics, very fun
  • Cons: Can be frustrating

  • Excerpt: I haven't even opened this game and I know it is going to dissapoint me. I bought it along with Indiana Jones and the Infernal machine. I was so happy to have not one but two more indiana games by lucas arts, in my opinion the best RPG producers for the PC, for £20. However when I installed and ran the Infernal Machine. I immediately knew that I had made a mistake in buying these games.
  • Pros: Cheap game
  • Cons: Another C *  @ p game

Frustrating but good

  • Excerpt: Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb is, I think, the third Indy adventure. As usual you play the intrepid Indy this time to prevent an artefact falling into the wrong hands from a recently discovered Chinese Tomb. The game is in the style of the old Tombraider, you have to make your way through set levels, searching to find hidden artefacts and necessary items to complete the game . Each level is set in a different part of the world.
  • Pros: Great graphics
  • Cons: Difficult interface and controls

Had lots of potential but...

  • Summary: While not as popular as the Tomb Raider franchise, Lucas Arts still manages to churn out a good Indy game that always exceeds it's successor. Unfortunatley, compared to the more fleshed out titles like the Fate of Atlantis and the Infernal Machine. Indiana Jones and the Emperor's tomb is a very weak game. It's obvious that the game was polished and aimed at X-box owners, making lots of action a big plus and eliminating any quicksave in the game.

Starts off well then tapers off

  • Summary: A lot of good work in this game. Great music and action. Problem is no instant save, so if you get frustrating jump sequence and you keep dying you have to start all over again. I quit out of frustration and I have heaps of patience. Good weapons, does capture the feel of Indiana Jones, yet too much reliance on frustrating jump patterns.
