Indiana Jones and The Infernal Machine: Adverture Game of the Year
I must say that Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is one of the best adventure games I have ever played. Now I've played previous Indy games, the Last Crusade and Fate of Atlantis, this is the best of the series. After buying Indy I stayed up til 5 in the morning two nights in a row from being so eager to finish and continue on with the game. I became so involved and intrested in the storyline that I wanted to play both night and day to see what happened next. I've seen puzzles, devices, tricks and traps near the end of the game and I must say that they are one thousand times better than anything I've seen in the Tomb Raider series. I was amazed at the creativity and architecture of the game's level and location designs from King Sol's mines, Meroe, and the Palawan Temple. From beginning to end, I felt like I was back in the old days playing Indy: Atlantis from the problem solving and action sequences, the very things that kept the Infernal Machine fun, adventurous and exciting. And The best part of the game while exploring and adverturing was the fact I kept repeating to my self, I'm Indiana Jones!!! Now I own almost every single Lucasart's title from Jedi Knight to The Dig and I must say this I one of their BEST, an instant classic. The demo just doesn't do justice to this fine game, I highly suggest to buy this game, you won't regret it. I've never had so much fun with this game than reliving the very movies I grew up with, and now experiencing the same action-pulse-pounding adverturing that happened on the big screen but now on the computer screen. Hal Bartwood has succeeded again in making one of the most memorible game experiences I'll forever remember. And with saying that I can honestly say that Indiana Jones and The Infernal Machine could very well be Adventure game of the year.
