Review from http://blogs.coventrytelegraph.net/ladslounge/2009/07/game-review-indiana-jones-and.html
CHILDHOOD fantasies from the 80s.
Closely following the obviously lustful thoughts of Princess Leia's gold bikini in Return of the Jedi, being highly-skilled with a bull-whip was always high on my list.
And now, thanks to Lucasarts, my whip skills are being put to the test.
This game is available on other formats - the DS, the PSP and the ol' trusty PS2 - but it's really designed with the Wii in mind.
Which is rather splendid use of the unique offering providing by the Nintendo machine.
How good is it? Better than the recent movie, although that's a given. As good as Raiders'? Hmmm, no.
But it's still a worthwhile and innovative attempt at bringing the Indiana Jones series to life in the computer game world.
Set in 1939 - a year after IJ and the Last Crusade - you follow the rather-handsome archaeologist on his quest to find the Staff of Moses.
As usual, there's a bad dude wanting the same object too - this time it's Jones' nemesis, Magnus Völler.
It's all great fun. Several of my online buddies have complained about freezing and glitches but, I must confess, when I played the game, it was smoother than Keanu Reeves in sunglasses.
And a rather large overcoat.
The graphics are standard but acceptable while the gamplay is moderately lengthy and offers plenty of additional factors to entice players to return more than once.
Whip-cracking fun for most of the family. Even Junior - despite the rather baffling decision to make it a 16+ game.
Indeed some of the scenes are a little heavy - but I don't remember being turned away from watching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as a highly-excited five year old.
Indy, welcome back old boy.
