I appreciate the prompt reply. While some of the screens look better than others, I think the aliasing is just REALLY noticeable. If the gameplay is solid, then I can definitely overlook that.
To be honest, some of the screens indicate to me a slightly stylized look. Am I wrong?And have you played the game yourself? Can you comment even generally about the controls, action set pieces, story, character, etc.? I know the Nintendo Power article will give us info, but I am interested in your take on it from what you've seen/played.
Can i get an answer about why it will not be on the next-gen systems now becasue i dont subscribe to nintendo power nor do i plan on reading anything about a much lesser system than the ps3 or xbox360?
Wow - did not realize how much all of you were wanting to know. I'll answer what I can, but just for the sake of my fingers I will point you in the direction of this weeks soon-to-be-released Nintendo Power which answers almost all of your questions. We gave them a chance to come play the game through, we chatted with them about many things - cancelling next gen, focusing on the Wii as a platform, as well as how exactly the game is played.
Your best bet is to pick that up since your questions seem to be answered in it.
For the questions that mag doesn't cover, I will be happy to answer. They've got the good info though
I have been looking forward to playing this game since it was first announced... It seemed very promising and although I was looking forward to the Xbox 360 version the Wii version has potential.
The first video game I ever played was Indiana Jones And The Infernal Machine. The low resolution screenshots on the front page gave me the same feeling I had when I started playing the original 3D game. LucasArts, Could you give us some explanation as to why you canceled the next generation versions?
I have a questions about Wii version:
Most important question which studio is behind new Indy?
Fist fighting in motion control?
What is game timeline in Jones universe. Is it after or before Temple of Doom?
Euphiria, DMM or even Havok inside?
Whole game can be finished in coop?
Is the game purely motion controlled or is the IR pointer used as well?
Any idea of a launch date for Europe?
Does it have Wii Motion + support?
Has the game been finished for a while and simply waiting to see what happened to the PS3/360 games?
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis ...is it included in all versions?...and does the Wii version use the Wii IR pointer for mouse like control?
Why should we think the game will be any good..when the team chosen to make the Wii game has yet to release a title that has scored much over 50%? (outsourcing to A2M ...who made the Iron Man game and the PS2 version of Mercenaries 2... does not fill me with hope). Isn't the Wii game just an afterthought along the lines of Force Unleashed?
Yay! Oh wait... I do have one question if you don't mind:
Why in God's name would you outright cancel the PS3 and Xbox360 versions of this game?
Does Lucasarts have a pledge against quality titles? Do you all just love the muddy graphics and gimmicky gameplay that only the Wii can provide? Or did you look at the fourth movie and think "yeah. we should make something goofy and kiddy and low quality also!! worked for them!"
Hey everyone. Wanted to jump in here and let you know we are officially announcing our latest title - Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings. While the leak of the trailer made the rounds of the net, we've been waiting to get everything together for release announcement.
