Adventure by Randy Sluganski
"...Emperors Tomb is for the adventurous
adventure gamer who actually wants to be Indiana Jones and relive the action
sequences of the films. Yes there are puzzles, but they arise more from the
environment how best to shimmy to that unreachable ledge or find an
entrance to that inaccessible tower. If anything, Emperors Tomb disproves
the adage that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. In
fact, this game is probably as close to a movie experience as you can get
without jumping into the screen."
"Before you begin to think that you do nothing but fight
your way through scads of Nazis and Chinese adversaries, well this is a game
that usually offers a cerebral and a brute force solution to the same
situation. For example, as Indy clings to the shadows on a ledge overlooking a
roomful of Nazis, you can choose to either drop down unannounced and blast away
or shimmy across the ledge and release a lever that will drop a chandelier. In
many cases, its easy to overlook the cunning route and go for the gusto,
but any true adventurer will look for the non-violent approach in keeping with
the true spirit of the Indiana Jones character..."
"Still, if I had to choose between the artificialness of
Laura Croft and the grittiness of Indiana Jones, Indy would win fedora down,
even if his aging bullwhip might be in need of a dose of Viagra."
