Games Review: Indiana Jones and
the Staff of Kings
DS, PSP, PS2, Wii, Activision,
Friday 03 July 2009
Just what is it about Nazis and archeological finds? As ever in Indyland, the baddies are obsessed with getting their villainous mitts on some relic or other. This time it’s Moses’ staff. This treasure hunt is the premise for Staff of Kings, a game that has great elements – perplexing puzzles, rollicking combat, plenty ofwhip action – but is desperately thin on the ground when it comes to plot. But there’s one hidden gem at least here – Fate of Atlantis, 17 years young, is thrown in to appease older Indiana Jones fans, which it most definitely will.
