Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb

7 September 2004
Summary: This game is god awful. The controls stink while the game play is medicore. The worse thing about the controls is that it's too flaky and unpolished. The controls are extremely sensitive and at times very unresponsive. The camera angle is even worse. You can face looking into inside of a wall. Yup.. inside of a wall. The camera angel is right up there with the controls as making this game GOD AWFUL.
Summary: Long wait but you knew it would be good. But it isn't. Can't save - This is incredible- repeat, repeat, repeat. Missed the last of 12 jumps? Back to the first. Controls- Terrible - Hence the repeating problem. It's one thing to miss a tough action but another to have to work with terrible controls. Will wait for Tombraider and avoid Lucas in the future. How could anything this bad take so long? Hey, did you guys outsource this?
Summary: PROS: 1. GOOD FIGHT ANIMATIONS-really captures Indy's wild, drunken fighting style. I also loved how Indy's hat would fall off after he would get punched many times. 2. GOOD CHOICE OF WEAPONS-a nice touch is the ability to use weapons dropped from your enemies. 3. MUSIC-John Williams' classic score is integrated well during key points of action. CONS: 1. MEDIOCRE GRAPHICS-the textures are muddy.
Summary: Indiana Jones games have the potencial to be great but the developer just cannot figure out that the people who would buy games of this nature want more exploration than tedious fighting. The game's atmosphere and presentation is great. The controls are even great - for a change from LucasArts - but, you have at your disposal a whole host of weapons including the ability to duke it out with your fists.
Summary: I bought this game at Target along with my X-Box unit. I played approximately an hour and a half of thie game. I don't recommend the game for beginning video players and for those who like good graphics. First, in the second section of the Ceylon portion of the game, the Indy character enters a pool of water. He is expected to find his way into the ruined temple. I spent considerable time attempting to get the character to move past this point without success.
