Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings

I LOVE Indiana Jones.  Truth be told I want to be Indiana Jones.  I was 8 going on 9 when Raiders of the Lost Ark hit the big screen.  My childhood home had huge boulders and trees in the backyard that were constantly being used to recreate scenes from the movies.  When I was preparing for my trip to Australia I found out that the original Indy hat was made from an Australian Akubra.  So I made sure to track down a shop and buy a hat there.

Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings is a new game for the Wii and the Playstation 2.  My wife bought it for me for Fathers Day and double checked with the store clerk to confirm that the game was NOT available for the Playstation 3.  The PS2 game looks like they made the game for the Wii and then just ported it to the PS2 so they could sell a few more copies.  The game runs pretty linear and keeps you from fully exploring the pixilated environments.  When ever you get into a situation that you don’t know what to do to continue, you just wander for a moment and in the right location the Action button will appear leading you to continue on your quest.  The camera angles and character animations are set to remind you of Indiana Jones, but really, the only reason that I’m still playing the game is so I can get through the story. This Trailer looks good, but I’m not loving the game…yet.
