Indiana Jones and the Emporers Tomb
 
I pretty much just started the game, and I am still in Prague now. I started playing the game in the HARD mode, because I played the Infernal Machine that way. Which I thought was just great! So, I would like to know if you people think this game is "easier" than the IM? I read in the ET game manual that you do not see the "icons" when in the hard game, but when ever I come up to a lever the "lever icon" always pops up. Also, when he goes into a "I will say room" the camera view slides across the room so you are to be sure to "see" something of "value". And, if he walks up to something, he starts "thinking" out loud, before I get to see what is going on. I want this to be a challenge, not a "gimme" game. Is this a "bug" in the difficulty setting or will it get more difficult as the game progresses? I find it really easy right now, I mean too easy! I keep going back to see if the game is still set to hard, and it is. Sorry, if I sound redundent.;) Has anyone here finished this yet? I realize that it is still new, so....

Thanks,
Jim

I have to say, that I did find it straightforward (even on hard) because of the reasons you gave. I read somewhere, that if you are use to playing these sort of games, you kind of know what to look for etc. and I think that definitely was a factor when I played it. A review magazine described the Infernal Machine as surprsingly cerebral which I think was a pretty accurate description. However, for Emperor's Tomb, emphasis seems to have shifted to combat which was fun, but I did miss an 'intellectual' challenge. The hardest part of the game for me was finding all the artefacts - I've got about 60% of them so far...Also, when I played the game, it took me about two weeks to get to the end of the third level and then only 1 week to do the other 7 levels. The levels didn't seem as long from 4 onwards - I don't think I was playing it more often. The graphics and sound are good and I personally liked some of the level design, but overall I thought Infernal Machine was a far better game.

Thanks for the reply, I do have another small question, now that you mention it. In the IM you got the score at the end of the level and it told you how many "treasures" that you collected. I believe it was 10 per level? Anyway, where/how do you know if you collected the treasures/artifacts in ET? I seem to think there is something at the begining of the game you click on just before you go into the game?? You were right about the IM being cerebral! Good choice of wording. :D Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying this game so far. Graphics are great too.

At the game menu, one of the entries is artefacts. Select that and it will show you a shelf will show all the ones you've collected. I assume the shelves have to be full to get the bonus......:)

Dalixam 05-10-2003 01:47 PM

Bonus? What bonus? I collected a few artifacts throughout the game, but only when I stumbled upon them. I didn't bother to look for them since all you get is too see them on a shelf. (Except if this bonus you're talking about is something special).

Bob Gnarly 05-10-2003 04:26 PM

The bonus is an un-official artifact (i think)

Remains of the First Emperor

Artifacts=bonus level
 
I "think" I read that if you get all the artifacts, you open up a "bonus level" to play. That was also done in the first game too. You had to have a certain amount of points or something like that.

Cool. Maybe I should replay some levels to collect them :)

I just read that collecting all the artifacts will unlock the art gallery...

roadrunnerguy 05-11-2003 11:07 AM

I just found where it was that I seen it. Go to page 7 talking about the MAIN MENU in your game book, and at the bottom of the page in the "artifacts" section, it says this "Find all the artifacts in the game to unlock a bonus."

Good luck!

i wonder what it is....i hope its a level because just another artifact would be dull

Schmatz 05-11-2003 11:18 PM

I got them all and all I got was the gallery... but I never did check the level log... also I beat it on Normal, and now Im doing hard... maybe there's something different for hard? I dunno.

Working on Prague level
 
Need some help on getting across this Hook in the prague level once he has gone through the red doors...any ideas.?

Metallus 05-12-2003 02:21 AM

You should start a new thread for your question, resty.

liam jones 05-18-2003 09:59 AM

it's a good game
 
IT'S A GOOD GAME CANN'T WAIT TILL I GET IT 4 THE PS2

no secret level
 
I got all the artifacts and there is no secret level unless Im on some serious drugs and missed it. All you get is a gallery of artwork. Its kinda cool.. but just geting the artifacts is great.

roadrunnerguy 05-31-2003 02:58 PM

No secret level? NUTS! The way I see the shelves, there are 3 treasures per shelf. Is that what you got? I am in the Peng Lai Lagoon level now, and I realized I missed quite a few treasures. So, I am going to go ahead and finish the game. THEN, go back and play it again, only I will pay attention more next time. I found a really cool website with a great walkthrough. Which I am not reading now, but possibly when I replay it, I may need it for treasure hinting ;) . Here is that website:
