  1. This is high adventure in the grandest sense, and running around in the shoes of Indiana Jones is truly a great thing. Not to mention the manual has got to be seen to be believed. It’s so bloody cool, it’s amazing.
  2. It's all top notch Indy stuff and perfectly captures all the ace elements of the man and the movies. Monsters, exotic locations, suspicious characters and back-stabbing. He even looks and sounds like Harrison Ford which makes it all even more believable, charming and utterly essential. [GamesMaster]

    With a great musical score, fantastic gameplay and great graphics (for the most part), this is one adventure you do not want to miss!
  4. Playing The Emperor's Tomb is just like watching your favorite Indy movie; it's got everything, and strikes a wonderful balance of platforming, puzzle solving and combat.
  5. The huge number of levels and their often epic scale is backed up by a worthy storyline. [Mar 2003, p.40]

    Wow, I think a bunch Lucas Arts or Collective employees are reviewing it below or something. This game is definately among the worst games Wow, I think a bunch Lucas Arts or Collective employees are reviewing it below or something. This game is definately among the worst games I've played on the xbox. The graphics are poor, gameplay awkward, and in some spots broken. It's really just a poor game all around. Full Review »

    This game is awsome in every way. You ARE Indiana Jones in this game. The music is also impressive! If you are an Indiana Jones-fan, buy it NOW!
