What it is: There have been some Indiana Jones games, ranging from the downright dreadful Raiders of the Lost Ark on Atari 2600 in 1982, through to Indiana Jones Adventure World on Facebook in 2012 (how the times have changed). And sure, the odd 3D adventure has been decent, such as Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb on PC, PS2 and Xbox, but basically the name has been used to sell a lot of tat for a long time.
What it should have been: Uncharted. Somebody should have made Uncharted before Naughty Dog did, hired Harrison Ford to provide his voice for a young CG Indy (instead of making Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), and put Indiana Jones in the lead role. Same action, same production values, but with added lion tamer’s whip. And Indy and his father instead of Drake and Sully. Oh man, Sean Connery could have voiced it too. Goddammit, LucasArts!
