After previews that have, as far as I know, been based on LEC demonstrations, IGN actually got to have some hands-on time
with Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings
, and their impressions are positive:
It's easy to scoff at a game that embraces motion controls with such first-generation gusto but LucasArts seems to have done a grand job marrying physical movement to onscreen action in a way that successfully heightens immersion rather than detracts through pointless gimmickry.
Interestingly, the preview claims that the Nazis will not ever be referred to as Nazis in order to keep things "family friendly." Seriously? I did notice the iron cross looking emblems on the Germans in the screenshots in lieu of swastikas, and I know putting Nazis on LEGOs is a touchy subject, but since when can't a non-toy based Indiana Jones game call the Nazis...Nazis? Anyway, check out the whole preview
