View Full Version : Indiana Jones & The Inferal Game - Sucks, Big Time !!!!!

So, this game sucks, big time!!!

I have been stuck on the same stupid screen for 4 hours and it's a stupid jumping screen and it's only level four!!!

What's that all about????? At least with Tom Raider 2 you could figure out where to jump to. The controls on this game are so horrible it's impossible to figure out where to go or what to do without the immense hours of gameplay from previous players who have posted to this Forum.

Okay, the theme is great, but the graphics are Tomb Raider 1 quality, the controls are horrible and the level of difficulty has no bearing on the gameplay whatsoever. In addition, the map is useless and confusing, the hints non-existant and enemy AI are words he programmers never heard off.

Does anyone actually like this game????

Three hour plus puzzels for a stupid "jumping across platforms" screen are a bit much!!!

So what's going on at LucasArt? Are you guys satisfied with releasing crappy games and scraping the bottom of the barrel movie tie-ins with games likes of "Star Wars Epidode 1" (another crap Lucasarts Game) and the latest Indiana Jones?

How about $45 worth of game next time instead of ripping off 1990 technology and 1980's movies.

My only regrett is that I wasted a whole weekend and $45 on this game.

The last crappy game like this I played was Rainbow Six and even it lasted more than 2 days. Too bad Electronic Boutique won't refund my money. If they would, a lot more software companies would be a lot more careful about releasing crappy games.

I think this game is great. If you don't really like the game, Electronics Boutique will give your money back for a game even if you've opened it if it has been less than two weeks unless there policy has changed.

Upgrade your lousy computer instead of buying games. The graphics are the best I've seen this year.

If you think Indy (a very deviously challenging game) and Rainbow Six are crappy games, you must not do much thinking.

They are the 2 coolest games on earth along with EverQuest and Starsiege: Tribes and Rouge Spear

A couple of thoughts -

First - this is the strategy forum. If you just want to trash the game, you need to go to General Discussion.

Second - game companies can't please everyone. What appeals to some will not appeal to others. If you read several of the posts, you will notice that people get different things out of the game.

For example, I love the Tomb Raider series, but there are some things in them that I don't like. But, I'll keep getting them because overall they're great (even III!!)

This is the first Indy game I've ever played. I heard about it on a Tomb Raider forum & decided to try it. At first it was hard to get used to because of the different controls an such, but it looks to be a good game. I like the puzzles and things more than the shooting and having to worry about ammo and health, so that is something that I personally wish were a little different about the game. But, like I said before (to summarize) different strokes for different folks!!

Just because you do not like it, does not mean that it is a crappy game.

if you think the graphics are bad,maybe you have to change your screen size on the display menu ,

I agree that some of the puzzles are EXTREMLY difficult. I alone spent about two hours trying to kill the damn ice monster. But I still find the game to be well done. Indy doesn't move as smoothly as Lara Croft does which in turn sometimes makes the gameplay difficult. But for the most part, the graphics are great and the game is really fun.

Y'know what? This is one of the best games I've got my hands on in a long time (and I have seen A LOT)...but it's not as wonderful as Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis, now THAT was a classic.

The reason you think the game sucks is because you don't have the brain capacity nor the opposable digits to work the controls.

In the past couple of weeks we've had to put up with some hard Indy bashing. We had one who didn't like it and was a Draken fan ,but at least that one was intelligent about it. If you don't like the game (or if you just suck at it http://www.indyjones.net/forums/wink.gif) go find another game to play. As for Rainbow six and Rogue Spear, those are two awesome games that take a little brain power to play. I agree that Episode 1 was very rushed and stunk http://www.indyjones.net/forums/smile.gif

Drakan was one of the worst games I have ever played. God even Episode 1: The Phantom Menace is better! There are many good games. Here are a few off the top of my head...
Starsiege: Tribes, Rainbow Six, Indiana Jones and the Infernal machine, Everquest http://www.indyjones.net/forums/smile.gif, Rouge Spear,and Age Of Empires 2: Age of Kings

Heheheh, NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING beats out Fate of Atlantis. Fate of Atlantis is best game ever end-of-story. Name any other game that created such a massive cult following and realization of its greatness that a FAN MADE SEQUEL is being made?! Check out the indy project, Fate of Atlantis II at www.indy3d.net. (http://www.indy3d.net.) For some reason the main site hasn't been updated in months, but just scroll down and click on Indy Project.
