Product Description

Prevent a powerful artifact—"Heart of the Dragon"—from falling into evil hands in this charming Indiana Jones adventure. Indy will kick, punch, shoot, whip, swing, climb and swim his way through 1935 China in hot pursuit of evil Nazis and the Asian underworld. With deadly threats looming at every turn, do you have what it takes to make it through alive?

"If adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones." So says the Temple of Doom movie poster, and--Lara Croft notwithstanding--Indiana Jones is still synonymous with glory, romance, treasure, and adventure. Previous Indiana Jones games were produced by the graphic-adventure game masters at LucasArts. This latest installment is an action-oriented romp made by the Collective, the same development house that produced the critically acclaimed Buffy the Vampire Slayer for Xbox. The Buffy game engine is a good fit for Indy, as he travels the world on a quest to prevent the discovery of an ancient Chinese secret that could spell the end of creation itself.

Such a quest should be easy for an adventurer like Indy, and with game controls that are as well laid out as these, it is easy. Indy can run, jump, shimmy up ropes, swing with his whip, and duke it out with nasty villains. True to the movies, Indy also has to navigate an almost constant stream of deathtraps. Caves full of traps, ruins full of traps, medieval castles filled with traps, and guess what you find in China, yes, more traps. It gets repetitive, but the game has some clever tricks in its floppy hat. For example, skulls make noise, so Indy can toss a few and watch crocodiles target them instead of him.

Indy can execute quick punch combinations to knock his foes out, or he can pick up weapons such as a chair, plank of wood, machete, or firearm. His famous whip can be used to disarm foes. The only problem is the camera, which is difficult to keep in the right position--you have complete control of it, but it's hard to manage a camera while you're fighting a martial arts expert, a Nazi with a gun, or a poacher keen on decapitating Indy.

The graphics are good, pleasantly reminding you of some of the movies' more memorable locales. The in-game Indy mug looks like Harrison Ford down to the chin scar. Other nice touches include how Indy has to actually pick up his hat if it falls off during a fight, and the little '30s plane flying over the aged and weathered world map. The music is pure John Williams, and the voice work is handled by convincing imitators. The guy they got for Indy, in particular, sounds a lot like Ford himself. Sadly no other movie characters of note appear in the game. (I was looking for John Rhys-Davies at least, because he seems to be in every video game that comes out.)

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb does right by its license and provides hours of entertainment for anyone who's ever wanted to relive the movies starring the most exciting adventurer alive. Lara Croft, eat your heart out because if gaming adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones. --Bob Andrews


  • True to the films
  • Great graphics and fight controls
  • Good voice acting
  • Too many trap sequences
  • Camera problems common to third-person action games

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Indiana Jones Adventure April 24, 2003
Platform for Display:PC
I simply don't understand all the negative reviews on this game. Yes, the controls are alittle clunky at first, but I think that it is very easy to get used to them. I loved Infernal Machine but this one is even better. The main highlight of the game in my opinion is the hand to hand fight sequences. They are so much fun! Unlike in Infernal machine, you now can move in all directions, as opposed to the forward- backwards interface infernal machine had. The sound effects are great too. It has the loud, unrealistic punch sound effects like the ones that are used in the Indy Films. I also think it is really cool how you can use a variety of random items as weapons. Such as a shovel, table leg, liquor bottle....etc.
AS for the negatives, there are 3 main things that I don't like about the game. 1 is the lack of an in-game save option. This can get extremely frustrating, but it is manageable. Another is the puzzles are much less difficult then the ones in the Infernal Machine, for those of you who are familiar with that game. But the main thing that I found annoying about the game in the fact that around 80% of the time, you don't have any ammo for your trusty revolver. After all, what's the point of Indiana Jones if you see a guy flailing a big sword around and not being able to casually pull out your gun and shoot him. :-) Overall, I think that this is a worthy addition to the Indiana Jones game family. Again, the hand to hand fight interface is worth the money alone. If you were a fan of infernal machine, or just a plane Indy fan, you wont be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating yet Awesome !! April 19, 2003
Platform for Display:PC
This game is one of the most frustrating games I've ever played. Bad-1) It does not allow save points and auto saves at the start of every level. Thereby if Indy dies, you have to re-start from the level. Bad-2) I always prefer using mouse left button to move forward and right button to move back. But its camera movement keys are hardcoded for the same. I still managed to use the mouse for movement but for swinging using Indy's whip, I've had to change the movement keys because then the mouse buttons would not let me swing Indy. And swinging using the whip is to be done scores of times. Bad 3) Most levels are very very tough. Fall in the water..Sharks attack, Swing..someone shoots. So be prepared to play levels innumerable times.BUT...Good 1)The graphics are awesome. Some levels like the China & Istanbul levels are to be seen to be believed. Truly beautiful. Good 2) The fight sequences are just great. Kicking, fisting, fighting using table legs, bottles or other items is superb. Good 3) Some of the puzzles are very good. The graphics used to showing the puzzles like the Zodiac clock is wonderful. All in all, the tough levels, the frustration in re-starting the levels add to one's determination to finish this frustrating yet awesome game. I hope Lucas Arts corrects the bad points and bring out an Indy III game soon.

2.0 out of 5 stars I was disappointed April 3, 2003
By A Customer
Platform for Display:PC
I've been playing Indiana Jones games on the PC since they first started coming out, and I found this one disappointing. Lots of potential and there are some cool things, but the jerky camera and poor implementation of the controls is a pain. In fact, this game literally gives me a headache like some of the old 3D FPS have done from the jerky camera. Some of the fighting is fun, but you can't assign weapons to keys and are forced to use a scrolling inventory to select them which makes pulling out a particular weapon in the middle of a brawl quite difficult. The puzzles are mostly jumping puzzles where if you don't time it just right you start over, and these get really frustrating if you're not used to playing games with these. The game is very linear and has some enjoyable moments, but I expect more from LucasArts. If you're a fan of Indiana Jones you'll probably enjoy this game, but if you're looking for something with more of an adventure game element like Fate of Atlantis, you'll probably be very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Won't be disappointed April 10, 2003
By Peter
Platform for Display:PC
Compared to the previous Indianna Jones game, The Infernal Machine, this game is phenomenal. The graphics are gorgeous and the frame rates are fine(on my high-end PC). The controls take a while to get used to, but if you are experienced with using the mouse and keyboard, or if you have a game controller, you will be fine with the control aspect.
The levels are designed well, with an intrigueing story line and cool pre-level cut scenes. Another great aspect of the game that many people have overlooked is its PERFECT balance of guns and hand/whip combat. The last Indy game left his fists with no real use, but this game is remarkable and extremely fun when it comes to fist fighting. The fights are long and leaves you with lots of room to improvise(left mouse button is left hand, right button right hand). I am also able to grab the opponent and then do a variety of combo-move on him such as punching as I hold him, knee him, head-butt, or throw over a cliff or into a wall. If your skilled enough, you can even get your opponent into a headlock. The guns on the other hand, do not kill the opponent in one shot and have precious ammo, as it should be. It is often easier to whip a gun out of an opponents hand and beat the crap out of him with your fists.
Many people have complained that you are unable to save a game where ever you want, but I like it like that. It is more challenging and organized, and leaves me without all those save files that I lose track of. I have not had the problem of having to redo a section over and over again from dieing right at the end. I've been playing the game on normal difficulty through 6 levels and have only gotten to the END of a section and die once, so it really shouldn't be considered a problem. I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for an adventurous, action-packed, challenging, fun, fast-paced, intruiging, challenging, exciting, intense, fun,
