Editors at Official Xbox Magazine enthused, "Not only does it sound, look, and feel like an Indy movie, but the plot is actually interesting - you will watch all these in-game cinemas to find out what’s going on, and... enjoy the story.

Racing against evil Nazis and the Asian underworld, players whip, kick, punch, leap, swim, and climb their way through exotic locales to capture the mysterious "Heart of the Dragon."
