Do you have what it takes to make it back alive?

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Randy Sluganski

"...Emperor’s 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, Emperor’s 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, it’s 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."
