Bad

Way worse than Indy 4...

Inconvenient checkpoints, shoddy controls, and general bugginess are far more dangerous than the Germans (calling them Nazis is apparently verboten) Indy is up against.

Staff of Kings is just another example of how ill-fitting motion controls are for most games. The whip motions seemed to default to the feet (the least devastating attack) and the motorcycle finale is the most creatively awful control scheme ever devised (you hold the Wiimote and the Nunchuk at 10 and 2 and turn).

A good, old-fashioned Indiana Jones adventure (Indy's after Moses' Staff of Kings), decent production values (for the Wii), and some creative gameplay are wasted. I enjoyed the shootouts, but I wouldn't have made it past the 2nd (of 6) levels if not for the Indiana Jones license.
