Was there ever an Indiana Jones 1st person shooter?

i was just curious if there was a 1st person shooter Indy game, the stories would be perfect for that kind of game and i wouldnt be suprised if there was one.

No but if they did I think it should be called "Don't Call Me Junior!"

No.............. That would be a horrible game


Indy should either be a sidescroller or a third person view.

They should make a first person Indy shooter except he can only use his whip.. they could make it for wii and you have to sling the wiimote for Indy whip-action...

Take that Nazi scum!! *whip crack*

Everybody's different, but I think that Indy is too unique of a character to use as a generic "hand with a gun in it" FPS. If they got all of Ford's physical mannerisms dialed in perfectly, then maybe. But Ford's physicality is such a big part of his ability to portray the character. Besides, I want to see the hat.

I think it could work. It would probably work best on the Wii, for the whip an fist fighting. Although I'd still buy it for the PC. I do agree however that 3rd person action/adventure is the best type of game for Indy. One of those for the Wii would be amazing. I recently finished playing The Force Unleashed on the Wii and it was one of the most enjoyable games I've played in a long time.

Fortunately, there never has been; hopefully, there never will be - although with the progressive idiotification, it's, sadly, likely to happen.

Emperor's Tomb switched to first person during the Shanghai rick-shaw chase.

Not yet. But I'm still hoping that Free Radical Design/LucasArts secret project is an Indiana Jones first-person shooter. Voiced by Harrison Ford. With the brim of the hat in view on the top of the screen.

...but word on the street is Battlefront III.

Great idea, I think that if an IJ FPS absolutely had to be made, that would be the way to to it. It doesn't sound like much, but the hat goes a long way.

Meh, there's no point in having an Indy 1st person shooter. You won't really look like you're playing Indiana Jones.

I just finished playing Quantum of Solace and I have to say...they mixed 1st person shooting with 3rd person elements (like when you run up to a person it switches and gives you a button sequence to knock the person out, and when you duck behind objects you actually see bond crouched down which makes aiming over and around objects very easy. Plus, they make it easy for you to switch from object to object that you are hiding behind with a dash button.)

If they did an Indy FPS in this style so that Jones/You could utilize his revolver plus hand to hand combat coupled with being able to duck and cover behind unlimited amount of objects...I think it could have the potential to be cool.

And as for using the Whip and not being too much like Spider-man...there could be few sequences where the angle switches to 3rd person to get swing over stuff.

It's really hard to explain what I'm talking about unless if you played QOS.

Maybe this is a little off topic, but I'd like to see a WWI first person shooter.
Okay, maybe that sounds lame.
Trench warfare isn't very exciting.
At all.
But the game could focus on like secret missions and stuff like that, and maybe be a little steam-punkish to compensate for the lack of exciting weaponry in that time period.
What do you think?

(By the way, sure, this is a little off-topic, and may seem random. But I suggested it because the question of an Indy FPS reminded me that I've always hoped for a WWI FPS because Indy fought in WWI...)

Trench Warfare is very exciting. You got mustard gas cannon fire everywhere rotting corpses intense hand to hand combat.

That should be Call of Duty 6

and in the next level you are once again driven back a hundred feet by enemy gas and flame throwers! exiting!

I think that if there would ever be a WW1 game, it would have to shift its focus away from the trenches eventually, pretty much like the young Indy series did..

Yeah, like I said in the original post, I don't think that a WWI game (especially in the form of an FPS) would be very exciting unless it let you take the role of a spy or someone who didn't have to fight in the trenches for an extended period. That's why I postulated that the game could be steam-punkish, and take a few cues from Wild Wild West in that it would make you sort of a WWI-era James Bond.

That would actually be very interesting Immediately reminds me of the Lucifer Box novels by Mark Gatiss, two of my favorite books! If you like steampunky weirdness, james bondish villain plots and around 1900 dandy spy goodness, well, Lucifer Box is just what you want to read

More info on those here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Devil_in_Amber

I'll stop talking about books now, since this is still a gaming topic

Dragging this subject back to its original topic, if you want an Indy FPS game the closest is Return To Castle Wolfenstein. Nazis excavating a secret occult power, traps, tombs, hidden treasure, an adventure feel...

There's also a game called Uncharted: drakes fortune on ps3 that might as well be an Indy first person shooter.

Only it's in 3rd person, not an FPS.
