Indiana Jones & the Emperor's Tomb
Indy is THE Action hero
This game was great, though it could have been better. they finally came out with and indy game and i was awaiting this to ad to my collection The Bad: the voice acting, aside from indiana, was terrible. the Nazi's sometime sounded american or British. also the responsiveness of the game kinda ticked me off because sometimes if im pointing in one direction, the game will make me jump in a different direction, which sometimes made me fall to my death. The good: Indy's voice acting was great, though it wasn't Harrison Ford, the double was pretty good at sounding like him. the graphic were good, though some textures were a little to jagged for me. the combat was fun and inventive. i could throw people over ledges or go in guns a blazing, or just punch it out with the Nazi enemies. this game was a great game, and a good addition to your library. i recommend the XBOX version because it has the best graphics.
It will blow your mind!
This game has it all! Action, story, and everything you love about Indiana Jones. It kinda combines Temple of Doom and Last Crusade because it's kind of a dark story but there's still that Indy fun. You know, the spirit of the 1st and 3rd Indy movies. I actually think the story is better than Temple of Doom. It is absolutely the best action game I've ever played, and if you're an Indy fan, BUY THIS GAME. Don't worry about it being nearly a decade old. It is still epic! So get it as soon as possible! You won't be disappointed.
Indiana jones, BACK IN ACTION!
This is the best Adventure game i have played in a very very long time. don't get me wrong, the game has its flaws. but its fun, every last step of the way. for *****, this is one of the best adventures you can snag for dirt cheap on xbox/ps2. While Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb does a lot of things right, the technical issues surface at almost every turn and really drag down the game's high points. I recommend getting this for ps2, but xbox is good as well. When Tomb Raider first hit the scene back in 1996, it was easy to describe the game's premise as an Indiana Jones movie with a female lead. Lara Croft spent the next several years cornering the market on the video game version of action archeology, and even though the comparisons to Harrison Ford's big-screen character never really stopped completely, it took LucasArts four years to strike back with Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine--a flawed game for the PC and the Nintendo 64. Now, LucasArts is giving its whip-cracking action hero another shot at the title with Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Emperor's Tomb takes place in 1935 and puts the rough-and-tough archeologist on a quest to recover a Chinese artifact known as the heart of the dragon--a black pearl with the power to control minds. In keeping with the standard Indiana Jones theme, our good doctor isn't the only faction involved in the quest, and along the way you'll encounter plenty of Nazi thugs and Chinese gang members, all of whom want the pearl for their own evil plans. Though the plot contains a few twists and double-crosses along the way, the game is very thin on storytelling, only breaking into a cutscene to move you from one part of the world to another. Even the mission objectives aren't expressly conveyed outside of the pause screen, though the linear nature of the level design doesn't often force you to know exactly what you're after at any given time, anyway. While the game is pretty straightforward, it does throw a lot of different levels at you, moving through various locales along the way. You'll travel to Prague, Istanbul, Hong Kong, an island fortress, and more. Even though you'll be moving along from place to place fairly quickly, it doesn't feel like a short game, and players should be able to get a bit over 10 hours out of it. There isn't much replay value to speak of, of course, though the game does contain three difficulty settings and a handful of optional artifacts that are hidden throughout the game.
