Summary: Indiana Jones swings onto the Wii with his trusty whip and a bunch of motion controls. The latest adventure of everyone's favorite fedora sporting archeologist takes him on a quest for the Staff of Moses as he races against his rival Magnus Voller and the band of Nazis intent on getting the artifact for their own vile superior race driven agenda. Just right off the bat I have to say that I think the game is fun. Does it have problems? Yes, it kind of does.
Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings: Not One for the Museum

Summary: Following the shortcomings of the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, many fans expected huge things from Indy’s comeback, especially after the announcement of the Staff of Kings release on X-box and PS3. To the disappointment of many, the attractive looking initial release was canceled due to various financial and company ills within LucasArts and following a long, difficult retooling, Indy eventually was reduced to only a DS and Wii release, leaving us with the Staff of...
Summary: Being the huge Indiana Jones fan that I am, I had to purchase this game at some point. I had heard mixed reviews about this game so I wasn't really sure what to expect. So what did I get? One of the things I found interesting about this game is the combat controls. This is one game where you actually can get at least a small workout while playing it, especially if you play one of the combat arenas, an extra feature of the game.
Summary: We just got our Wii a couple weeks back and i'm a huge Indiana Jones Fan! So when I got this game in the mail, needless to say, I was pumped. It's a good game so far! But there are a few setbacks... There isn't much story...at all. It's there, but it's so hard to follow that there might as well not even be one. It's pretty much Indy on a bunch of little side-missions. That's what it ends up feeling like after a while.
Summary: Definitely not the greatest game, it has no replay value, the co-op is seriously almost impossible to play, and it's beat pretty easily. So with such a negative review why did I give it 3 stars? Its a must have for any Indy fan. There is no game that makes you feel more like Indy! If you can pick it up cheap (Its worth $12 or so...) I would say go for it.
Good For The Hard Core Fans But Needs A Little Work

Summary: Like A lot of people waiting for the new Indy game to come out I bought this the day it was released thinking how great and how fun it would be, sadly while it's entertaining it was also somewhat of a letdown as well. Like some reviewers have said the major problem was the controls when you try to throw a punch or fling the whip, it doesn't do what you always want it to do or it doesn't react at all allowing the enemy you're fighting to get in a few more hits.
Summary: I had high expectations for this game. I don't know why. The last two Indiana Jones action games (Infernal Machine and Emperor's Tomb) were fun, but not great. That is what this game is: fun, but not great...just good. The first problem is the story, which moves along without much context, logic, or narrative. Indy just moves from place to place following the mystery.
Summary: I have not completed the game yet. There is a lot of action, shooting, fighting etc. I am still learning how to handle the controls so I sometimes get frustrated with it, but I think that is down to me not the game itself.
