Ice Age: Dawn of Dinosaurs

 

Sharing the qualities of a child left unsupervised with a 10-pound bag of Skittles, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a hyperactive adventure that bounces between gameplay types with reckless abandon, gleefully throwing mammals and reptiles into...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (Wii)

 

One of my favorite point-and-click adventures from the early '90s was LucasArts' Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, the first LucasArts game based on the movie license to feature an entirely original storyline -- a novel concept back in the day....

At times, Indy must also shoot at enemies by using the Remote to aim a reticle and pressing the B (trigger) button, though this is not as fun as the melee combat due to more finicky motion sensitivity. About a third of the way through the game, it took...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Quick-time events. Why'd it have to be quick-time events?

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

Too many remote-waggling quick-time 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...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is a third-person action-adventure game of daredevil leaps, death-defying rides, and ancient puzzles, and occasional fisticuffs with local ruffians and villainous henchmen. In an original story created for the game by

Indiana Jones and The Staff of Kings

 

Given the endearing popularity of Indiana Jones as one of Hollywood's all-time greatest heroes, it was with a fuzzy warm sense of childlike anticipation that this reviewer popped Indian Jones and the Staff of Kings into the Wii, eager to actually...

Although the game's story stretches across a variety of international locations and does its best to capture the unique atmosphere and humour of its celluloid inspiration, it's often difficult to either enjoy or care about the story or the sound-a-like...

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Quick-time events. Why'd it have to be quick-time events?

This is by turns frustrating, fun, exciting, dull, a technical achievement and a bit of a mess, but it's the most authentic Indy game yet.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

 

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for Wii Review - 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.

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...

Indiana Jones And The Staff Of Kings (Wii)

 

You'd think that LucasArts would have concentrated on a Crystal Skull video game last summer instead of a stand-alone effort involving the mythical Staff of Moses (snigger), but it seems they were still busy perfecting The Force Unleashed so poor Indy...

Bonus combat arenas ; Full Fate of Atlantis 1992 PC game included ; 8 adventures in Co-op mode ; Great motion control/whip action ; Some great puzzles and temples to explore ; Solid voice work ; Collect artifacts to unlock skins/glory medals

Motion controls are slow to react in fights ; Poor graphics ; Can't skip any tutorials or cut scenes ; Doesn't save your progress often enough ; Tendency to freeze/crash ; Camera glitches

Staff of Kings is agreeable when what it really needed to be was exceptional.

Wild Earth indeed

 

I actually purchased this game in the hopes that my 3 year old would have something to play on our new Wii. Surprise, surprise... the game is almost too hard for me! Don't get me wrong, the graphics are awesome and my son really enjoys watching the ...

realistic graphics, realistic actions of animals

overly sensitive controls, unidentifiable "prey

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 a 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.
