Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine ist zwar keine ernsthafte Konkurrenz zu den beiden Zelda-Titeln, aber dennoch ein sehr gutes Spiel. Sicher, die Entwickler haben schon etwas frech zusammengeklaut. Die Ähnlichkeiten zu Tomb Raider sind offensichtlich und nicht von der Hand zu weisen. Angesichts der Tatsache, dass Lara Crofts Präsenz auf dem N64 wohl ein ewiger Wunschtraum bleiben wird, erhält man aber mit Indiana Jones einen mehr als gleichwertigen Ersatz.

The bottom line is that if you've ever found yourself even remotely interested in Tomb Raider, Indiana Jones, or puzzle-solving action-adventure games, this is the best one Nintendo 64 will ever get, and it's a fine one to have in any library. Nab it before it's too late.

Podsumowując, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine jest całkiem dobrą przygodówką. Kuleje, co prawda animacja postaci, ale nie jest to powód, dla którego ktoś miałby przekreślić tą grę. Fabuła jest dość ciekawa, a sama rozgrywka z przeplatanymi elementami przygodowymi i zręcznościowymi potrafi przykuć do konsoli na o wiele dłuższy czas niż przeciętna gra. Gra zdecydowanie godna polecenia dla posiadaczy Nintendo 64, którzy cierpią męki z powodu Tomb Raidera, który nigdy nie ukazał się na ich konsolę.
In any event, Indy does provide a good Tomb Raider experience, at the cost of somewhat confusing controls, slightly over-challenging puzzles and long load times. An above average rating of 3 1/2 GiN Gems is appropriate this fun-and-challenging game.
Proceed with caution if you plan on renting this game. It’s going to take you a while to get through the entire title, and not just because the game is so large. Good luck with those pesky 18-inch ledges.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is a big game, to be sure, with enough levels to keep you busy over a three-day rental period. The puzzles within them aren't very original or entertaining, but seeing that this is the only Tomb Raider-style game to come to the Nintendo 64, it deserves at least a little leeway. Video game players went so long without an Indiana Jones game that they had to start going to other sources for their tomb-raiding fix - except for N64 owners. And they'll find that there's at least enough fun to be had by renting this game that they'll be able to work it out of their system.

Despite its first-rate license, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine was only made available as a Blockbuster rental - and for good reason! Infernal Machine's storyline is captivating enough, but its stage design is poor and its playability is rock bottom.
