Indy's Latest Further Damages his Legacy
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: An unintentionally comedic adventure game designed for people who want to like puzzles but don't want to put thought into them
Graphics: In addition to the best ''back sweat stain'' in video games, most of the temples are rich in details, and the motorcycle chase delivers a jaw-dropping spectacle
Sound: Indy grunts far too much. Truth be told, it gets uncomfortable when he scales cliffs.
Excerpt: The Indiana Jones franchise is one I hold very close to my heart. Even more so than Star Wars . Yeah, I said it. You see, there’s just something about an adventuring archaeologist fighting Nazis and exploring our world that speaks to me. I ate up everything Indy-related when I was growing up. Of all the TV shows I watched as a child, The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones was the only one I had to see every week as soon as it came on.
Excerpt: Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is a three-dimensional action/adventure game that is sadly more Kingdom of the Crystal Skull than Raiders of the Lost Ark. The linear gameplay and unresponsive controls cause plenty of frustration and the poorly paced storytelling leaves the game without a compelling narrative. The audio/visual presentation is a bit of a mixed bag.
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (Wii) - Review
29 June 2009
Excerpt: “He chose… poorly.” If you have no idea that the previous sentence derives from the Grail knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, then you most likely will be choosing poorly yourself when picking up the new Indy joint effort by Artificial Mind & Movement and LucasArts. While hardcore Indy fans will uncover loads of fan service paying homage to the movies, enjoyable unlockable extras, and a harrowing adventure experience that almost makes you feel like Dr.
Excerpt: The talk surrounding Indiana Jones And The Staff Of Kings was mainly of how much more accessible this adventure would be to a wide range of gamers. Really? Take a snapshot of the second level for instance and you'd swear this was designed for hardened gamers with gold-plated synapses and reflexes like Keanu Reeves' in The Matrix. It's one of the hardest levels we can remember playing in a Wii game, and definitely the hardest second level we've ever played.
Conclusion: De Indiana Jones-films zijn leuk, LEGO Indiana Jones was ook erg goed, maar Staff of Kings stelt helaas op teveel vlakken teleur om een goed cijfer te verdienen. Qua graphics en gameplay mankeert er gewoon te veel aan het spel. De co-opmodus maakt nog iets goed, maar is helaas vrij kort en erg simpel.
Pros: Met je zweepje zwaaien, Fate of Atlantis vrijspelen
Cons: Slecht geregistreerd gezwiep en gezwaai, Actiescènes worden saai, Grafisch matig
Summary: Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings heeft me helaas aardig teleurgesteld. Het avontuur is wel aanwezig en de game heeft in beginsel aardig wat variatie met diverse locaties om te bezoeken, maar het gebrek aan een goed uitgewerkte besturing doet de game wat mij betreft volledig de das om.
