    Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is the second Indiana Jones game I've played on the PS2, after The Emperor's Tomb, and it really didn't feel like an improvement at all.

    The controls feel somewhat unresponsive. The graphics in this game are really bad, even for a PS2 game. The environments are dull and empty. The face of Indy looks weird, even on the front of the box he looks less
    Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is the second Indiana Jones game I've played on the PS2, after The Emperor's Tomb, and it really didn't feel like an improvement at all.

    The controls feel somewhat unresponsive. The graphics in this game are really bad, even for a PS2 game. The environments are dull and empty. The face of Indy looks weird, even on the front of the box he looks less like Indy than on the box from the older game.

    You can't use a weapon whenever you want. There are fixed points in the game where you get to shoot a gun without being able to run around, just like an old -fashioned on rail shooter. But the controls feel clunky and make the shooting sequences very unpleasant.

    The person who did the voice acting for Indiana Jones did a rather good job, he really sounds a lot like him.

    The Indiana Jones movie series delivered some of the best adventure movies ever, but unfortunately there is no good Indiana Jones game made for the Playstation console as to this date.

    I can't give this game more than 4 out of 10.

    Utter crap. Fate of Atlantis and The Infernal Machine were vastly superior to this game. How many years was this in the making again? Two? Three? What a train-wreck. It's horrible player control reminds me of the old Fifth Element game from a decade or so ago.

  1. Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is a pity, because although it has very interesting aspects, the final result is not as good as it should have been.
  2. Entirely unremarkable.
  3. Even so, its relatively short escape to parts unknown, coupled with its limited gameplay, can make this adventure feel like another in a growing string of low moments in Indy's console career.
