Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (DS)

 

Even with input from George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and the original John Williams film score interwoven throughout, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for the Nintendo DS doesn't feel much like a real Indy game experience. The gameplay is awkward in...

Will the disappointments never end for Indiana Jones fans? After last year's disappointing Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie, along comes the same heartbreak in video game form. Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for the Nintendo Wii is every bit as...

Indy can punch quickly with a tap of the X button or throw a more powerful punch by holding down the X button, and he can also dodge, pick up items to use as weapons, throw those very same objects, use his whip to either disarm or drag enemies towards...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings Review

 

The “Indiana Jones” franchise has proven to be one of the most lucrative in video entertainment history, as the immensely popular movie series has spawned everything from television cartoons to action figures to video game adaptations. Installments in...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is entirely unremarkable. The solid design ideas and diverse nature of the gameplay keeps it semi-interesting, but it never reaches out and grabs you. And in fact, it just doesn’t have that capability. The...

Quicktime events. Why'd it have to be quicktime events?

Environmentally aware brawling ; Environments look lovely ; The most authentic Indy game yet

Too many button-mashing quicktime events ; Falls back on terrible minigames ; Sometimes frustrating and dull

As with a deep-fried Mars bar, Staff of Kings’ disparate elements shouldn’t work in combination – and, indeed, they don’t quite – but the individual ingredients are right tasty. It’s an enjoyable game, but so bitty and shallow it's difficult to recommend.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Indiana Jones is back for an all new third person adventure that has him trotting the globe to find the Staff of Kings, the staff used by Moses to part the Red Sea. Can he find it before Magnus Voller and the Nazis do? Let's get to the review!

I was hoping for a lot more from Staff of Kings, but in the end it's a strictly mediocre game. It's worth playing through, but even at its budget price of $30 it's hard to outright recommend for purchase, although I do recommended you check it out for...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Though Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is new and exclusive to Nintendo Wii, it does bear a striking, almost shameful resemblance to the many Tomb Raider games starring Lara Croft on the old PlayStation and PlayStation2. Fortunately, that's only...

The Indiana Jones films came first, but it was Lara Croft who made interactive archaeological adventures a videogame staple. So it follows that the new Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings game can't help but draw comparison to old Tomb Raider games.

Entertaining combat and quirky puzzles save this game from belonging in a museum.

Intuitive controls ; Entertaining combat ; Creative puzzles ; Good-looking environments

Over too quickly ; Rough transition between story and gameplay ; Sometimes glitchy graphics

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for the DS has its fun moments — particularly the combat — but the story falls flat and the gameplay is sometimes problematic. But this is not enough to drag the game down completely. The cipher puzzles, although...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Staff of Kings tries to do so many things that it fails to nail any of them. The combat is clumsy, the adventuring is dull, the shooting is uninspired and the presentation is severely lacking.

A variety of gameplay styles

Some motion controls feel awkward ; Bland visuals ; None of the sections feel polished

Those looking for an Indiana Jones game to right the wrongs of Spielberg's latest movie sadly haven't got what they were hoping for. Staff of Kings tries to do so many things that it fails to nail any of them. The combat is clumsy, the adventuring is...

Indiana Jones And The Staff Of Kings (2009)

 

For most fans, it’s a delirious blend of kick-ass action and perilous exploration that makes the Indiana Jones movies so thrilling, charming and downright irresistible. But while Indy’s latest console quest has all the swashbuckling and whip...

Product Specifications

Step into the shoes of the legendary hero, Indiana Jones, in an epic adventure! Set in the year 1939, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings follows the rogue archaeologist on an 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 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.
