I'm a very big fan of Indiana Jones and this game really has everything to recreate the atmosphere of the films.
It is also a great improvement compared to the first Indy's game (Infernal machine): graphics, sounds, gameplay, story, everything is better.
The game structure is in part similar to the Tomb Raider serie but with better gameplay, cleverer puzzles and a better fighting system. The fighting system is in fact really well done and becomes little by little more challenging as you progress through the game.
The game is also quite long but never gets boring and you'll always want to see what's next till the ending titles.
There's no save option (the game saves automatically when you progress through the game) but I had no problems with this feature because the "save check points" are evenly spaced and not so rare. Maybe someone could find it a bit frustrating (expecially in the the last levels when the game becomes harder) but it was not my case (difficulty set to normal in the menu).
In my opinion the only real downside is the inventory system, that is not so user-friendly so you'll have to get used to it.
I played the game with a joypad (x-box style) because I found to have a bit more control on the caracter when I wanted to walk/walk faster/run, but I also tried the mouse/keyboard system and think that it is ok too.
Take the classic Tomb Raider 2 game and beef the graphics up and add more tricks better fighting and better sound. Now replace the busty heroin with Indiana Jones and you get the idea.
Great game, not original but the game play is spot on the puzzles are just right and the action is just great.
Highly polished like all Lucas Arts games.
At the low price you can get this game now its well worth adding to any adventure, arcade game players collection.
