Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

His parents may have named the dog Indiana, but for millions of fans there's no better name associated with adventure than the moniker Dr Jones took for himself. For Indy fans, the follow-up to the 1992 Indiana Jones adventure game has been a long wait, but trust us--it was worth it. A solid 3-D third-person role-playing game, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine was built on LucasArts' own Jedi Knight engine, putting an entirely new spin on the series formula.

While his lady friends throughout the years may have considered Indiana himself "infernal", the title actually refers to a Babylonian device that has fallen into the wrong hands. In the past, Indy took on monstrous Nazi officers; now he's working with the CIA to capture the machine before it falls into the hands of Soviet agents. This fight takes players through scores of wonderfully rendered scenes, both underground and aboveground.

There are some drawbacks, of course (and we're not talking about its similarity to a certain other tomb-raiding game). The primary fault is that it's single-player only, so don't plan any KGB-versus-Dr Jones death matches. But the famous Indy wit and attitude goes a long way towards making up for that flaw. Also, Infernal Machine is easy to jump into and simple to play--unlike other games that require memorizing key assignments before even beginning.

A much-anticipated title, Infernal Machine--like the globetrotting, dust-covered, nick-of-time treasure hunter himself--delivers the goods. --Hampton Munroe

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!! 22 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This game is brilliant. My 8 yr old twin boys & I have just spent 5 months playing this wonderful epic. The lateral thinking required for this game is educational whilst being great fun. The adventure also improves their co-ordination skills, maths (points can be accumulated and then spent on essential items),speed of use of the keyboard keys and general problem solving. I have recommended this game to all my friends and their children. Brilliant, good value for money, educational & fun. What else could I want? Another one please - soon!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent adventure from start to finish 17 Mar. 2002
In Lucasarts' latest installment of Indiana Jones related games, The Infernal Machine takes the form of a 3d action adventure, very similar to the Tomb Raider series, as opposed to the previous point and click affairs, which proved to be classics in their own right. Players take control of Indy to swing, shoot, climb, jump, whip and canoe through 17 complex and very well thought out levels, all of which are varied and offer their own unique challenge. (I found the Jeep Trek level to be very exciting). The game sticks very closely to the plot of the films on which they're based. There's a healthy mix of platform action and puzzles to keep even the most expert of players busy for quite some time to come; at least until the next Indy game is released towards the end of this year. In short, yet another wonderful game from the very talented Lucasarts programmers, and one that should be picked up as soon as possible, especially at the new bargain price! A very well deserved 5 star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine 23 July 2002
By A Customer
Marvellous, action-packed , adventure game set in more tropical places than Tomb Raider. More puzzling than brain challenges I loved the adventure but all the usual things (whip across caverns, escape boulders, meet giant robots etc.) there is also a secret level "Return to Peru" which includes Raiders of the Lost Ark behind the colapsing wall+ secret area in the secret level (Close Encouters of the Third Kind Studio) all in all a days handful of adventure all in 1947 in INDIANA JONES and The Infernal Machine.
The 5 parts are scattered all over the world from the Tian Shan River, Palawan, South Mexico and Egypt the last part to connect Indy to Atherium is in The Tower Of Babel.
Get the parts before the Russians in a race against evil!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent! Marvelous! Wonderfull! 9 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase
I played the game throughout my childhood again and again and tied me every time anew. Fantastic environments, good sound, great gameplay and a really very good story. Definitely a recommendation of my hand. To buy the game

You will get many hours of puzzling fun and adventure. I have the game countless times through and it still gives me a lot of fun and joy.

The game is fully compatible with all Windows operating systems, also for 64-bit operating Systems, including Windows 8.1. For this, a patch / installer is required. It can be downloaded on replaying.de. The installer contains the official LucasArts patch, together with some additional modifications that enhance the stability of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Indy Ever 2 Aug. 2005
I got this game free with my first p.c and it lay on the side while all the usual stuff got played.
But one day i installed it and was hooked instantly the story is immersive and well thought out
The gameplay, while now a little dated, is one of the best of the time.
plus it is the only game ever to keep me from playing
Zelda ocarina of time
All in all an ace game
