Wäre das neue Abenteuer von Dr. Jones eine Fortsetzung eines Lara Croft Spiels, dann hätte ich dieses Spiel ganz sicher links liegen lassen. Bei Indiana Jones und dem dazugehörigen "Kultstatus" konnte und wollte ich das aber nicht so machen. Gerade dem Kultstatus hat dieses Spiel wohl einiges zu verdanken. Die Story ist in typischer Indiana Jones Manie, die Missionen die gelöst werden müssen unterhalten ungemein und sind je nach dem welche Schwierigkeitsstufe man hat ziemlich knifflig, die Grafik passt zum Spiel, der Suchtfaktor ist hoch und man muss bis zum Schluss um die Asiatin kämpfen.

This style of gameplay won’t be to everyone’s liking, but for this reviewer, it worked. The overall experience is fast-paced and very enjoyable, and everything about the game is authentic Indiana Jones – from the music, right down to the rumpled clothing of the famous adventurer. Which you’d expect really, considering that the original versions of this game were developed by LucasArts. There are a few small niggles, notably with the camera, which gets a little hung up on the scenery at times; the swimming sections (which are a pain); and in the fact that there’s a fair degree of tricky jumping and swinging to be done which can result in one-too-many untimely deaths. On the whole, though, this is the closest we’ve come so far to actually being in an Indiana Jones movie. Dust off that fedora and order yourself a copy today!

Beyond the inept camera view and quirky keyboard controls, the game looks and feels good. The Indy character looks a lot like Harrison Ford, right down to the scar on his chin—he even sounds a bit like Ford. The story is compelling, backdrops are beautifully rendered, textures are crisp, and much of the music is straight out of the films. Most important, the action is fun. Whether you're a true Indy fan or just a casual gamer looking for a quality adventure experience, Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb should satisfy you.

This game won big points with me before I even hit the "New Game" button. I am very impressed by games with fast initial load times, and Indiana Jones did not let me down. There is no greater deterrent to a video game than to have it take so long to load, that you are on to other projects by the time it gets to that first menu, and you end up abandoning it altogether. This game takes place in 1935 and you are Indiana Jones. The first step of your mission is to find the gates of the Lost City through the viny, overgrown, forested back drop known as Ceylon (a.k.a. present day Sri Lanka). The game manages to capture the very essence of a hard trek over ancient stone works and through the sometimes unforgivable environment of earthquake-ridden rain forests.

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb is a good enough game. It has its heart in the right place, and it's certainly more true to the characters and feel of the movies than, say, Raiders of the Lost Ark. There's a lot of puzzle solving, some great fighting, that whip, and Indy's affection for his hat. Yet, the further into the game I got, the more I realized that Indiana Jones himself is completely replaceable here. He could be Lara Croft, for example, or maybe American McGee's Indiana Jones.
