Great Ideas Ruined By Awful Execution

Not since Dead Rising on XBOX have I seen a game with as much promise wasted.

The ideas, puzzles, story, voice acting are all great fun, however the problems with the game are great and many.

The whole game feels like you're playing through molasses. The movement is slow, the combat is slow, the time to get through cut scenes is slow. The game is just slow.

The camera is the worst. This awful mechanic caused more deaths than any villain could have. With no easy way to reset the camera, one is constantly fiddling with the D-pad in order to find an appropriate camera angle.

You cannot skip cut scenes. This is particularly frustrating when the camera and sloppy movement contributes to your death so frequently.

This is just a taste of the mediocrity that is Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings. The graphics, even by Wii standards, are barely adequate; the sound design is embarrassing (with the exception of Indy and some of the other voice actors); and the overall presentation lacks polish and substance.

This game is oozing with potential; it's just a shame how the finished product came out.

Have a sidekick join in co-op play or fight up to three friends in free-for-all battles. That's all I have to say.. If you have friends your going to love this game.
