Crystal Skull is a little similar, whereas Ark and Crusade seem to have a clearer story - find the Ark, find the Holy Grail - and work better as films.

I still prefer Skull to Doom however for some reason. Maybe it's because I like the 1950s 'B' movie nods it's filled with a little better.
I prefer Skull to Doom as well, but it's not by much. I also agree with the clearer story. One big issue though is the throwaway characters in Doom and Skull. I mean, Short Round and Capshaw are nuisances. Blanchett and LeBouf (even John Hurt and Karen Allen) portray forgettable characters. That takes away from those movies IMO.
