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.

  • Summary: I bought this game without reading any reviews because I trusted Lucasarts and expected a worthy followup to their last Indy game (Infernal Machine). This is just not it. I have been playing Lucasarts games for over 10 years now, and one of the reasons I loved their work so much was the ingenious, at times annoyingly difficult (but always challenging) puzzles that were an integral part of their PC games. I am just not seeing this in the newest Indiana Jones offering.
