New 'Emperor's Tomb' interview with Jim Tso
Wednesday, January 8, 2003 - Gilles V

Jim Tso, LucasArts producer of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, has been interviewed by the electrix playground. Here's a part of the interview:

Share with us a favorite moment from the development of this game.
JT: One of my favorite moments was watching the Triad guys in the game for the first time. For a long time, the only enemies we had to fight against were ivory hunters and Nazis. These guys have a fighting style similar to Indy's, kind of a western brawling style. The Triad guys are totally different, they do flips and spin kicks. It was really cool to watch them do flips over Indy in the game.

New 'Emperor's Tomb' Xbox preview
Monday, January 13, 2003 - Gilles V

Team Xbox was able to check out the latest Xbox version of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb to see what Indy is made of. Here's a part of their very positive preview:

So far, the Emperor’s Tomb is like an Indiana Jones movie on steroids. The numerous locations and various enemies are straight from the movie motif. Expect Indy to do everything from exploring ruins while taking on ivory hunters, to disguising himself as a Nazi officer to infiltrate a sub base. The Collective even through in a few first-person areas, such as trying to escape from the Black Dragon Triad in the streets of Hong Kong, to make things a bit more enjoyable. While riding in a rickshaw, you’ll have to take out the oncoming enemies with your machine gun. While there are only a few of these areas, it does help to spice things up a bit from the typical third-person action/adventure title.

The Xbox version is set to ship around middle of February. Hit the link above to read the preview.

'Emperor's Tomb' development report
Sunday, January 19, 2003 - Gilles V

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb Art Director Brian Horton explained to IGN.com's Action Vault how he re-created the Harrison Ford title character:

"My goal for Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb was to make the most convincing Indy possible, and that meant nailing the likeness of Harrison Ford. The first thing I did was grab as much reference as I could on the actor. I purchased every book I could get my hands on and spent hours on the web downloading his image. The one thing that's amazing about Mr. Ford's face is how different it looks from film to film. I decided to stick with Indy reference; he has a distinct smirk that permeated the Indy reference I gathered. I also decided to narrow my reference to Raiders and Temple of Doom as we were going for an Indy that predates all of the films."

'Emperor's Tomb' on the Most Wanted list
Tuesday, January 21, 2003 - Gilles V

The Official Xbox Magazine named Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb the first must-have title of 2003 last week and now Gamespy named Emperor's Tomb as one of the most wanted games of 2003:

Indiana Jones may be getting long in the tooth, but he's never looked better than in Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Though the whip-wielding, kiss-stealing, treasure-hoarding, and villain-thrashing archaeologist has had his fair share of gaming adventures, none have been as potentially exciting as this one. One of the reasons this title is so anticipated is that it is being developed by The Collective...

Still no release date for 'Emperor's Tomb'
Wednesday, January 29, 2003 - Gilles V

Every Indyfan is wondering when Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb will be released this year. When? Well, the thruth is that LucasArts still have no official release date.

According to Amazon.com Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb's Xbox version will be released on February 19, 2003. The PC version will be released on February 21, 2003. And the PS2 version is set for a March 28, 2003 release. But how did Amazon.com get these release dates when LucasArts doesn't have an exact date yet?

I have contacted LucasArts and asked when Emperor's Tomb will be released and they answered that they don't have an exact date yet for the PC, Xbox and PS2 release. and that they are still planning for a late February release. So there's a chance that this rumored February 3rd date is the date the game goes gold and then we may expect to see the game on PC and Xbox in stores about a week and a half later.

Friday, January 31, 2003 - Gilles V

Interview with 'Emperor's Tomb' artist online
Thursday, February 6, 2003 - Gilles V

A Canadian technology site launched an interview with Bob Donatucci, a Collective enviornmental artist who worked on Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. It's a long interview mostly about Donatucci's history of being an architect and teaching computer graphics. Here's a part of the interview:

"I've been the biggest Indiana Jones fan for 20 years now. He's my hero. It's funny how the circle becomes complete." It isn't just the hat, he explains. The Indiana Jones movie character appeals to his sense of adventure. And if nothing else, Donatucci's path into the hottest area of software development has been an adventure.

Creating the 'Emperor's Tomb' manual
Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - Gilles V

Console games and PC games usually come with great, in-depth manuals filled with extra goodies that don't necessarily pertain to gameplay. But the most attractive manual to date will most likely come with the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.
IGN.com has a feature in which Gregory Harsh, Senior Designer/Illustrator at Beeline Group, reveals how he created the very attractive manual that will come with all versions of Emperor's Tomb. Here's an except from the article:

My aim throughout this manual was to convey all the necessary information without hitting the gamer over the head with it. Though most of the information is straightforward, with a little probing one can find a lot of hidden trivia. For example, the patent number on the Barnet College Interdepartmental Memo represents the opening day of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and the Egyptian hieroglyphics sketched on the passport spread loosely translates to 'the ark cradles the wrath of God' (too bad Indy notes that he hasn't had time to translate it...).
But above all, I was able to be Indiana Jones, by writing his journal entries. How cool is that? Funny how he and I think alike...

This feature is very in depth and comes with a few illustrations of the manual itself. A must for every Indyfan and person interested in designing and illustrating.

Click here to read the feature. Thanks to R. Scott for letting us know.

'Emperor's Tomb' received a 4.2/5 from 'Team Xbox'
Thursday, February 13, 2003 - Gilles V

Team Xbox has posted a very positive review of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb Xbox version. They gave Indy's latest game a 4.2 out of 5! Here's a part of the review:

LucasArts did a fine job making the closest thing to a replication of all the movies thrown into a video game. The gameplay is fantastic, the level design is overwhelming at times, and the graphics and sound make their own positive arguments. Considering the amount of time the first level alone takes to complete, I can easily say that it is worth the fifty dollar price tag.

The latest 'Emperor's Tomb' Xbox reviews
Wednesday, February 19, 2003 - Gilles V

Two new Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb Xbox reviews came online during the last 7 days.

The first one is from IGN.com who gave the game a surprising 6.1 out of 10. IGN's main complaint are the puzzle's in the game. They were probably expecting a new adventure game in the style of Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine while LucasArts is clearly marketing Emperor's Tomb as an 'Action' game. Here's IGN's closing comments to the game:

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb is Tomb Raider meets Pitfall. Only the adventure aspects fall far short of the original Tomb Raider and the platforming action goes a bit overboard at times. There are lots of flaws in the game, but it's not a bad title. I had a lot of fun playing Indy and even if I wasn't reviewing the game, I'd have been compelled enough to see it through the 12 or so hours of gameplay to the end. It's fun and a bit addictive. But there are a ton of flaws to be found and the puzzle design is so incredibly meager it hurts the game a great deal.
The final score doesn't quite match my overall enjoyment of the game, but again, the muck-ups and nearly non-existent puzzle elements hurt a lot. This isn't a game you'll play twice, but anyone looking for a dozen mindless hours of action and platforming should at least rent Indy. It's worth a look at least to see if it's worthy of your money. A good rental, but not really the best $50 investment you could make.

Click here to read IGN's shameful Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb review.

Fortunately there are games sites like GameSpy.com. GameSpy has a very positive review of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb in which they gave the game a 82 out of 100. GameSpy says that the game captures the spirit of the movies, has a great fighting engine, superb music, and a story that sucks you in! Here's a part of their Xbox review:

LucasArts is keen to point out that the game features a healthy mixture of action, puzzles, and navigation. For the most part, the puzzle solving aspects of the game are simple and fun affairs that are nowhere in the same obtuse league to those found in, say, Capcom's Resident Evil series.
Taking place over ten large multi-staged levels, Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb is an excellent action romp for Xbox owners to enjoy. While I personally feel that the overall graphical appearance of the game is not quite as good as the Xbox is capable of, the flow and scripting seen smacks of great production values. The musical score is awesome and features classic Indy tunes and melodies ripped straight from the silver screen. And even though Harrison Ford doesn't supply the voiceover acting, LucasArts found a chap that's eerily capable of replicating Indy's dulcet tones.

Two new 'Emperor's Tomb' reviews online
Friday, February 21, 2003 - Gilles V

Games Domain posted their review of the Xbox version of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb earlier this week. Their review is detailed, contains a few minor spoilers and is overall not as enthusiastic about the game as other reviews, they gave Emperor's Tomb a 3 out of 5. Click here to read their review.

But luckily there is Lemonhead at The International House of Mojo who had a lot of fun playing Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Mixnmojo.com has published a superb look at the Xbox version of Indy's latest adventure. Here's a part of their review:

After a spectacular intro sequence giving a brief insight into what you may expect to find in Emperor’s Tomb, you’re dropped straight into the action on just another treasure hunt (which Indy invariably finds himself in at the beginning of every movie) for the lost idol of Kouru Wato. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this particular artifact is located in a deep recess, under the ruins of a lost temple in the tropical wilderness.

Mixnmojo gave Emperor's Tomb a 4 out of 5. Click here to read their full review.

 

'Emperor's Tomb' does not disappoint
Monday, February 24, 2003 - Gilles V

Both the Suburban Chicago Newspapers and Tech TV Channel have posted their view on LucasArts' Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb Xbox version and they both liked the game very much:

The Suburban Chicago Newspapers said that Emperor's Tomb doesn't disappoint. Here's an except from their positive review:

The Collective is no stranger to licensed properties. It was, after all, responsible for the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" video game last year, but bringing "Indiana Jones" to life was no easy task. Thankfully, the Collective was up to the challenge.
"The Emperor's Tomb" not only looks like an "Indiana Jones" movie it feels like an "Indiana Jones" movie. Only this time you aren't watching Indy's exploits, you are controlling them.
Visually, the game captures the look and feel of the movies to a tee. The character of Indy not only looks like Harrison Ford, he also moves through the game with the same physical mannerisms that we all know and love from the films. Everything, down to the exaggerated right hook Indy uses when fighting is here. No doubt the developers had plenty of time to study the films while working on the game.

Click here to read the rest of the Suburban Chicago Newspapers review.

Tech TV Cannel's video games show named Extended Play recently featured a spot on Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb plus placed a very positive review on the game on their site. Here's a part of the online review:

Most of the levels are still entertaining to run through, and some of the puzzles are clever. Acrobatic exploration aside, combat is a big part of the game, and it's here that "Emperor's Tomb" really excels. Finally, we have an Indy to be proud of -- a bad, brawling, tough-as-nails professor with a wicked one-two punch combo and a mean streak. Shoot an enemy in the head from afar before he sees you, take down a group with some generous machine-gun fire, or, better yet, smash a bad guy over a table, then pick up a chair and finish the job.

Also, Gamespy has posted an interview with Rick Watters, the producer at The Collective who is responsible for Indiana Jones and the Emperors Tomb. Here's an except:

GameSpy: How daunting is it to approach such a well-known character like Indiana Jones?
Rick Watters: Well, to many people on the team, the Indy world has an almost a mythic quality to it. Many of us on the development team are from the generation where Star Wars and Indiana Jones were the epic movie adventures we grew up with. We saw them in our youth, and to some degree, are still influenced by these movies. So, yes,...

The first 'Emperor's Tomb' PC previews are online
Saturday, March 1, 2003 - Gilles V

Now that the Xbox version of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb has been released you may expect to get some PC version reviews of the games. And the first 2 PC previews are already online. Both IGN and GameSpot had a look at the upcoming PC version and share their thoughts with us while showing some new screenshots as well. Here follows a part from GameSpot's preview concerning the keyboard and mouse controls:

Fortunately, the PC version of the game will use an intuitive first-person shooter control scheme in which you will move using the W, A, S, and D keys and attack using the left and right mouse buttons. You will be able to block incoming attacks by pressing the shift key, which will also automatically lock onto a specific enemy and let Indy focus his attacks. As you might expect from his many motion-picture adventures, Indy fights like a brawler, though pressing both mouse buttons also lets him grab his enemies, then shove them back against walls or even toss them off of ledges...

Hit the links above to read the previews. Thanks to Mixnmojo.com for the news.

By the way, the official Emperor's Tomb site has got a new cool looking flash intro worth checking out!

About editing 'Emperor's Tomb'...
Sunday, May 4, 2003 - Gilles V

An Emperor's Tomb fan recently contacted LucasArts to find out whether or not the community would be allowed to create modifications, levels, and more for Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb.

The fan got a call back from one of the LucasArts personnel who said that you are allowed to edit the game only if you release all your modifications, levels, etc at LucasFiles.com.

The line in the terms and agreements that says "you are not allowed to release any unauthorized levels" is true. But in the case of LucasFiles.com that is authorized by LucasArts meaning you will have to release all your level and mods at that location ONLY If you don't release them their then you are going against the agreement.

So now we can start editing Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb but remember that everything is legal ONLY if you release them at LucasFiles.com!

Thanks to Jake from Mixnmojo.com for letting us know.

 

'Emperor's Tomb' impresses 'games extreme'
Wednesday, May 28, 2003 - Gilles V

games xtreme has reviewed the PC version of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb. Their reviewer was so impressed by the game that he gave it a 98% - earning it their Editor's choice award. Here's a part of the review:

When I first brought the game back to my dorm and began playing, my hallmates ended up clustered around the computer watching me play, cheering when I threw a smuggler into a river filled with crocodiles and jeering when another smuggler threw me down a flight of stairs. The action is fun and exciting, a perfect match for the classic Indiana Jones movies. One extremely nice touch is the inclusion of Indy lore: primarily, Indy's hat. If, during a fight, Indy's hat gets knocked off, you can go back and locate it and Indy will pick it up and put it back on. It's a fairly simple thing, but it's one of the things that really made the game for me.
