Who would have thought that archaeology could be so much fun? A career option once met with wrinkled noses and rolling eyes, now the act of kneeling in trenches, fixedly brushing dirt from half buried artefacts is amongst the ranks of astronaut and fighter pilot in the "when I grow up" league. And that's all thanks to one man; the legendary, Indiana Jones. Forget Lara Croft's shameless hunt for riches while slaying on endangered animals, the globe-trotting escapades of Indy are where archaeology got rather cool.

Set in the year 1939, the rogue archaeologist's epic new adventure takes players from San Francisco's Chinatown to the lush jungles of Panama, in a race for a relic of biblical proportions - the Staff of Moses.

The game features interactive environments, where players need to call upon their wits and daring to make each spring-loaded environment a weapon in order to dispense of foes in clever and unexpected ways. Players use Indy's trusty whip to navigate the challenging terrain, engaging in fist and gun fights to battle through ruthless opposition as Jones spars with his nemesis, Magnus Völler.

Embark upon thrilling action sequences that remain true to the spirit established in scenes from the movies, such as Indy's pursuit of the motorcade in Raiders of the Lost Ark, the mine cart chase in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and the free-for-all aboard the tank in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Not just a solitary quest, the cooperative gameplay mode allows the player and a friend to brave the challenges in a variety of game modes in an entirely new adventure with a familiar character never playable in an Indy game. Unlockable four-player "versus" mode pits players and their friends head-to-head in biplane combat or a free-for-all tank battle.

Of course, the game wouldn't be complete on Wii if it didn't give players the ability use the Remote to wield Indy's whip using the signature over-the-head gesture - and it doesn't disappoint!
