Game Profile

Step into the shoes of the legendary hero, Indiana Jones, in an all new epic adventure! Set in the year 1939, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings™ follows the rogue archaeologist on an all-new globe-trotting quest. From San Francisco's Chinatown to the lush jungles of Panama, Indy must use his whip, fists and wits to fight through ruthless opposition as he spars with his nemesis, Magnus Völler, in a race for a relic of biblical proportions - the Staff of Moses.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings features completely interactive environments, where players need to call upon their wits and daring to make each spring-loaded environment a weapon in order to dispense of foes in clever and unexpected ways. Also, embark upon thrilling action sequences that remain true to the spirit established in scenes such as Indy's pursuit of the motorcade in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine-cart scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and the free-for-all aboard the tank in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

You call this archaeology?

Filled with cut scenes and swashbuckling action sequences, The Staff of Kings has the feel of an actual Indiana Jones movie. There are a lot of concepts included here that, if fully realized, could have made for a spectacular movie-style game. Sadly, as...

I am really looking forward to this game. Plus not to mention the bonus fate of atlantis.that comes with it. it is going to be great.

really hope this turns out. I can see how the controls and camera angles could muck the whole thing up. But if they keep it simple and the voice acting is decent, i'll buy it anyways.

I played Emperors Tomb for PC. Absolutley loved it! This being the next instalment in 'mature' Indy games, I hope I'm impressed. Go Indiana!

Just got this game today and it is horrible crap. I'll keep it short. I skipped the tutorial. It made me watch it during gameplay anyhow. The tutorial takes up 80% of the time I've played the game so far to tell me green means good, red - is bad. Another 10% was devoted to cut scenes, which are unskippable. The controls are very unresponsive, so you can basically swing at air sparatically for a few minutes and hope that something connects to punch an enemy. The game is very instructional - meaning that it tells you almost exactly what to do 90% of the time you're playing and gives you the least control of any game I've played. Instead of using your gun to shoot a gunman, you must shoot a lamp near him because in 1985 everyone had BULLETPROOF BODY ARMOR and pet robots. Most of the game is trial and error. Die 3 times - to figure out how to survive on the 4th try. There was a nice part in the first level where you fly a plane. It lasts 30 seconds. I'm on the 2nd of 7 levels so far and the only thing positive I can say about this game, is that the graphics are awesome, for a wii game. But it's not distracting enough to keep you from figuring out that all their quality control testers were picked on as children and took it out on the world when they got their hands on Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings.
