    Excellent story line, good environment, concept arts and characters; the essentials for a good single player game. And Indy has it all. A must have for fans.

    Very fun. its actually a precourser to the temple of doom (watch the first ten minutes). This game feel a lot like buffy because it runs on the same engine as buffy with a few slight modifications. reminded me of tomb raider(thats a good thing) but its INDY!!!!

    I don't see why this didn't get a higher score. I give it a solid 8.5. The graphics are very good (much sharper and eye-popping than any of the trailers I've seen for it), the combat is excellent (very "Buffy"-like), and the levels are huge. The only things missing are savepoints and multiplayer. Multiplayer, especially, which would add to the limited replay-value.

    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!

    An all around fun game. Gameplay mechanics are solid. Graphics and sound are nothing short of what you'd expect from Lucas. My one complaint: certain part of this one are really tough, so be prepared to get frustrated. Third-person action at it's finest, folks.

    Don't listen to these so called gamer critics about this one. If your a fan of the movies it a must buy!

    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.

    Strong playable grahics from indiana joes to the jungles, trees, fire, lost inca sites very movie like. The creators of buffy the vampire slayer have made the game. So the gameplay feels a lot like their past game, which is good. All the indie jonesing to do is here.

    Excellent voice acting, good play mechanics, and lush backgrounds all make this game genuinely fun. The puzzles and plot are rather linear, and it's all over too quickly, but the pleasure of imagining yourself as the Indy of the classic movie trilogy is considerable.

  1. Xbox Nation Magazine
    Sadly, however, not even the best Indy console game necessarily makes for a great Xbox title. [Apr 2003, p.80]
  2. GMR Magazine
    While the action runs smoothly, textures and level design are a bit on the simple side, making some of the more ambitious "natural" levels feel a little too grid based. [Apr 2003, p.67]
  3. It's a blast from start to finish and somehow manages to be greater than the sum of its parts. It's perhaps a classic example of the ideal game to rent.
