Wii/PS2 version[edit | edit source]
Suzie was planning on meeting with Indiana Jones after her grandfather was kidnapped by the Hip Chen Tong. As she caught sight of Jones on the street during a Chinese New Year parade, she was kidnapped by Blind Duck and dragged through back alleys screaming, and up through the Lao Che Lounge. She caught sight of Jones, trying to rescue her, before being being pulled through a Fireworks Factory, which had caught fire. She was passed off to another Tong thug while Blind Duck engaged Jones in a shoot out in the factory. She was led up a fire escape and through another Tong-occupied building, before being whisked over the rooftops, to a roof with a large dragon neon sign and a water tower. Blind Duck eventually retreated back to this roof, and was electrocuted when Jones shot leaking holes into the water tower, and then shot down the supports holding up the neon sign. Free from her captors, Suzie Tan did a high wire act on Jones' whip to walk to safety over the electrified water that had killed Blind Duck. She and Jones went to Archie Tan's office, which had been ransacked by the Tong men, looking for information about the Jade Sphere and the Star of the Orient. Jones sent her to safety as he continued to search for her grandfather's whereabouts.
PSP version[edit | edit source]
Suzie was taken to the Fireworks Factory where she was tied up in a barrel. She was rescued by Indiana Jones.
DS version[edit | edit source]
Suzie hid in Archie's office. When Indy reached the the store, he discovered tong members trying to get into the office. After being rescued, she convinced Jones to find the hidden basement under the store, which would have a clue to the location of the Jade Sphere. She told him about a hidden key in Tan's office. After he discovered the Cipher of Meribah in the basement and the information it contained, Suzy told Jones to find Loo Sing in order to get the password into the Lao Che Lounge. Later she drove a truck, and caught up to Jones' and her grandfather's runaway trolley. They were able to jump onto her truck before it crashed into the bay.
