"Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb blew these graphics away"
You'd be surprised how bad that game looks in most direct feed screens. The PS2 version looks dire when compared to the new game. The Xbox version holds up better and has some good textures..butthe polygon count looks surprisingly low (has a far less organic feel than these screens).
I still don't expect much from the wii game and it will likely be subpar considering the dev team...but from what I've heard it plays at 60fps..which can make a big difference to how good it looks when moving (especially if it has some quality animation). I'd take a silky smooth framerate and good animation over better textures any day of the week.
Do You guys need to complain over and over in all topics here about next-gen version?
It want be next-gen version sorry.
I hope that Indy not let me down as SWTFU did-awesome graphics and phisics is not enough.
I know this has been said over and over but could someone at Lucasart please let us next gen owners know whether this game will EVER make it to the Xbox 360 pr PS3. I have been waiting very very patiently for a long time for the release of this game for the Xbox 360. My new Full HD LCD also awaits your answer. PLEASE
I am a true Italian Indy fan and I'd like to know more about this upcoming game... If possible, I'd like to know more about the multiplayer mode(s) because 1 vs 1 tank battle sounds interesting but I can't imagine how it works and I'd like also to know what four-player mode does offer because I felt unsatisfied about infos provided in the main web page.
Then, I know it has been asked so many times, but, though I'm an Xbox360 owner, I'd like to know if there are any hopes to play Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings at least on PC because, according to the 7 screens offered, I feel it is possible as long as those screens really look like Indiana Jones Emperor's Tomb...
This game was originally intended to be proof that the "new" Lucasarts could still contend.
Unfortunately, Lucasarts has been lost in the wilderness for quite some time.
This is not the fault of the design teams, nor even the heads of production.
It's the fault of the bean counters.
Lucasarts was once a company that consistently achieved artistic quality and won awards hand over fist.
Those days are no more. Lucasarts has turned out their talent pool, churned through managers, and bankrupted themselves of the goodwill they earned from their loyal consumers.
The steps they have taken with THIS game have crossed a line.
Marketing flacks have been working double-duty to claim that "The Pure Awesomeness of the physics engine attached to the Force Unleashed and Indy Next-Gen simply couldn't be turned down on a modern computer, and most people don't have the killer rigs necessary to play!"
I decided I couldn't not have EITHER of these titles in my library. I reluctantly decided to purchase an Xbox 360 on the basis of these 2 titles alone - Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, and The Force Unleashed.
I was promised that Lucasarts was "commited to providing the best experience possible."
Then they fired the teams that actually knew how to work with the engine.
Lucasarts - you lied. You lied to me, you lied to your fanbase, and you lied to the media. You are NOT commited to quality entertainment, and I made investment decisions in technology based on your assurances.
You are NOT surprised by the reaction to these screenshots - releasing the game on the Wii as your primary platform is nothing more than a slap in the face and an attempt to recoup SOME of your losses for your own mismanagement - and flies in the face of your earlier reasoning for not releasing the game on PC.
The products that WILL be released weren't even developed in-house.
Please tell me that those screenshots are not the graphics that we have waited all this time to see. Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb blew these graphics away. Am I missing something? Now, if it was like the video, that's a different story. But we all know that's not gonna happen. So it appears that LucasArts has put together a sub-par game for a system where you can shake your controller and the whip snaps. Whoo Hoo!
Looks like it might be good. The trailer had some amazing graphics but I wonder if they can duplicate them on the actual game. I'm also disapointed that it's coming out exclusively for Wii, PSP, and DS. Not because I hate Wii (which I don't) but because this means that once again the forum will be swamped with rants and protests. Then again, the PSP release might stop the flood. A bit.
JediMudkip has already stated in this very thread that the next-gen versions were cancelled. To hear LucasArts' excuse, I mean, reason, why they did so, we should apparently wait for the Nintendo Power preview.
Continuing my questions (wasn't quite in time to edit):
5. Will the soundtrack of the game be original or taken from the films? I've loved all of Clint Bajakian's original scores, especially Emperor's Tomb, so I hope the answer is 'original'.
6. As the high-powered Euphoria physics system is no longer being used, will it be coming out on PC? Please?
7. How linear is the game?
8. Can you tell us any more about the co-operative mode? How long will that be, and will it cover the main game too?
Wow. Are you kidding? They cancelled it for the next-gen systems? That is a terrible idea. I'm not even slightly interested in picking this game up for the wii. JediMudklp, is there any hope that it will be resurrected for next-gen systems?
1. Can you confirm that the game is coming to the PS2? There have been conflicting reports.
2. When can we expect the game - or at least, when will the release date be pinned down? Earlier than May?
3. Will Rob McGregor's book novelisation be coming out around the same time as the game?
4. Fate of Atlantis is unlockable? Excellent! But is it the excellent Adventure Game or the rubbish Action Game? And what platforms will FOA be on - will it be on DS?
Wow im sorry but cancelling the ps3 and xbox versions of the game was a bad idea i was so looking forward to kicking some but on my ps3 with great graphics and now i cant even buy the game cause i dont have the platforms. The story directed by george lucas shouldnt be wasted on last-generation consols. PLEASE TELL ME THAT THE NEXT GENERATION VERSIONS ARE COMING OUT AT A LATER DATE!!!!
