Keep hating and kicking it, no sweat here...hope this keeps the price down so I can get another crack at ownership.
I played this when it first came out and thought it was great fun.
Owned one for a bit a few years ago and still, thought it was great fun. People that are saying that it is ''easy'', the approach is simple and straight forward, to get to ''Final Adventure'' and complete everything is very difficult. I came close, not sure that the final mode is even coded in there, but I think it is.
For those that say it's ''wood chopping'' this game reminds me of Metallica personally, and everyone lovessss MET. I've beaten Metallica, so hitting that captive ball over 200 times on a pro is wood chopping at it's finest imo.
IJ4 is a fun game with flaws. Simple as that. The call outs/movie clips/sounds always put a smile on my face. I like the orbits with the spinners, the Arc 8 ball multiball is cool, I like the captive ball temple of doom shot. I can think of many other games that fall under this one. It's really not a bad game at all, but hate on...
And for the record of why the code is the way it is, I asked Borg. He replied
''They gave us nothing for IJ4, it was a licensing issue. Everything had to be passed by them and they were being secretive with the 4th movie and didn't want to reveal too much. It's a good thing that the Crystal Skull wasn't our centerpiece''
