Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Review 1:
Oh yes, this is a good example for a game that probably never should have
been made. It's a weird action-mixture made up from the movie of the same
name. I bet they could have made a nice adventure of it like they proved
later. Well, they rather made up an Indy 4 than having a look at the
previous movies to create an adventure from them. Alrighty, but did it
have to be this... run around and kill some snakes (oh yes, we know -
Indy hates snakes...) and other bad guys? Just like in the film you are
running through the mines and free children. Your whip is your weapon...
Maybe I sound too pessimistic, to be honest I've played (and enjoyed) far
worse games. The game is playable, but it's just not of the high standard
the adventures set - it's not even as good as the action version of Indy
3.

Review 2:

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a disappointing PC port of the
average arcade version of the second Indiana Jones movie. The description
and review at MobyGames says it all about this poor use of a blockbuster
license: ?The Good: There's not much I like about this game.
Nevertheless, the mine cart levels are fun to play. And when I first
played the game (a long, long time ago) I thought the title screen looked
great (Look, it's Harrison Ford!). Also the game had the original Indiana
Jones tune. The Bad: Well there are really just three different levels.
The mine level, the mine cart level and the temple levels. When you've
completed a temple level, you have to play another mine level to save
some more children, after which you have to escape in a mine cart AGAIN
etc. Of course the levels do get tougher. The designers could have done
so much more with this license. Following the story line of the movie for
example (I admit I was looking forward to eating monkey brains :-) ). The
problem is that this game is a conversion from a simple arcade game. And
there's no room for a story line in arcade games. Bad controls make the
game really difficult when you're approached by several enemies. And it's
not always easy to hit a fireball with your whip. The sound of an
approaching bat is not what I like to hear. But then again most of these
old games have sound effects (using PC speaker) that make me turn off the
sound. The Bottom Line: A not very interesting conversion of an arcade
game that uses an Indiana Jones license. If you want to play a decent
Indiana Jones game, play Fate of Atlantis. Even if you can look past the
dated graphics and sound you probably won't enjoy playing this one.?
