Summary: Indiana Jones and The Emperors Tomb is a must have for any Indiana Jones Fan, or even if you want to play a good game. I think this is the 2nd Indy game they made, and its a big improvement from the Infernal Machine. It has some nice features in, and, you guessed it, Jones is fighting the Nazi's again. It has that Indy feel to it.
Summary: I bought this game because I am a big time fan of Indy. The main character looks like Indy and even sounds like him,the music is exactly the same as in the movies and you even get the famous whip! The game though is like playing another Tomb Raider title but without Lara and without really good puzzles. The controls are easy to learn, and the character motion is very good especially when fighting.
Summary: This game is BRILLIANT! Don't get me wrong, I really do love it, but I'll go into the reasons it only gets 3 stars later. Let me talk about the pluses first. I love Indiana Jones (and Harrison Ford) and this game is superb in its portrayal of him; the voice is excellent; the movement and fighting style is spot on (just like the movies), his use of the whip and the sound of his revolver is just like controlling him in the film, even picking up his hat after a fight, just...
Summary: The game starts out in Ceylon, although this is really a prelude level allowing you to get used to the controls etc. Then the story kicks in and takes you to various locations around the globe. Graphically the game is excellent, the level of detail on Indy himself being particularly impressive. Some may say the xbox can do better, but I can't really see any problems here.
Summary: I had convinced myself into thinking that this game would be as exciting as Tomb Raider, with the same wit and clever puzzles that made the early Indiana Jones games for me. I guess that on paper, the game isn't too far off this, but for a game thats not been devloped on any other console, I was slightly dissapointed where Lucasarts had skimped.
