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. The PSP system version features a variety of robust types of burst gameplay including combat and physics challenges, puzzles and the trademark Indiana Jones chase sequences.[LucasArts] Expand

  1. Although the graphics and the sound of the game are not that impressive, playing the game is really exciting. The always changing surroundings and the many possibilities, for example, using nearly every object around you to fight with it, are making the game to a real adventure à la Indiana Jones.
  2. Lot of gameplay variety, but the game is short and repetitious.
  3. A good action game, with a lot of puzzle solving and exploration.

    It's frustrating and oversimplified. [Issue#181, p.83]
  5. The game doesn’t present anything new, being essentially aimed at fans of the series that will be entertained while playing this new adventure of Dr. Henry Jones.
  6. This game is worth your while only if you take it as an interactive movie of sorts – somewhat shallow and anachronistic, but with adventures and a couple of silly puzzles to boot.
  7. It seemed more like a collection of exercises or training scenarios rather than a flowing adventure.

    Fabulous Game. Witty Gameplay. Great Soundtrack. This game takes you on a World Tour. Loved the Himalayan Mountain stage where the Wind keepsFabulous Game. Witty Gameplay. Great Soundtrack. This game takes you on a World Tour. Loved the Himalayan Mountain stage where the Wind keeps on drifting Indy away from the Ground. The only Drawback of this game would be the chase Sequences which get Repetative and the Final Boss Stage where the Moving Camera can make you go Dizzy in Minutes !! Expand
