Review Unlike the previous game in which only the original trilogy was covered, Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues encompasses all four movies in the Indiana Jones tetralogy. The focus is placed on The Crystal Skull, on which half of the game is based, but don't let the uneven reception to Indy's latest film taint your view of this game. The Crystal Skull-themed levels succeed where the movie failed, taking full advantage of the roll-your-eyes nature of the film to create a silly experience that doesn't have any problem taking shots at the source material. There are three acts based on the movie that introduced the world to the crazy concept of using a refrigerator as a one-person bomb shelter, whereas the other three movies have just one act each. However, the top-notch quality exists across the board, and the all-new adventures constructed around the original trilogy are deeper and more varied than those offered in the original game...There is a lot of content packed into this package. It will take quite a few hours to play through all four movies, and once you complete them all, it's worth going back to solve the puzzles that stumped you the first time around to pick up the many items you missed or simply couldn't afford. And when you finish with the developer-made content, you can build you own epic adventure from scratch. Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is the proper way to remake an already-entertaining product. Even the cooperative aspect has been improved by allowing players to wander off alone. This splits the screen in two and the halves expand and rotate depending on where you're standing and what tasks need to be accomplished. By building and expanding upon the elements that made the original so darn fun, the second Indy adventure is better in every way. This is a great adventure whether you're a returning veteran to the Lego franchise or are looking to grab a Lego whip for the first time.

Review When we first heard about the original LEGO Star Wars game, we were taken aback by the very unique idea and wondered if it would actually wind up being a fun experience. It turns out that it was indeed great fun, and subsequent releases only improved on the formula by offering more content, more unlockables and simply an overall bigger experience. Now, after the release of three Star Wars takes, a Batman title and one Indiana Jones game, things have started to get a little stale, and LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues doesn't help. It does offer some tweaks to the formula, but unfortunately, none of them are for the better...The single, overarching hub world of LEGO games past is gone, instead replaced by one hub area for each major film chapter (one each for the original three films, and one for each of the three major chapters in the latest film). Each hub contains all of the hidden bricks that you used to collect in levels and stashed inside of plants, fire hydrants or something else of this sort. Once you collect 10 of the same-colored bricks, a bonus will be flown in that you can purchase. Characters are no longer purchased from a store, where you now have to fight off a number of each enemy first and then buy them right in the stage. For the characters, this isn't bad, but not being able to run through levels multiple times, utilize newly purchased characters to find new bricks and build up your inventory is something that I missed here...LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues does try to do a few new things, but Traveller's Tales messed with the wrong stuff and essentially broke a solid, if aging, formula. The lack of secrets in the main levels is a mistake, the new hub worlds are confusing and the level editor is just short of being pointless. If you haven't already played it, the original LEGO Indiana Jones is a much better purchase.

Review LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues (or shorthand: Indy Jones 2) is a mash-up between Harrison Ford's tomb raiding franchise and LEGO's... well, LEGOs. For those that are familiar with the original trilogy and the head-scratching fourth sequel, you'll feel right at home if you've never picked up the first LEGO Indiana Jones. While the first focused on Indy's first three films, The Adventure Continues picks up where the good doctor left off -- in search of the Crystal Skull...That said, Indy Jones 2 also rehashes the three adventures from the first game, sticks it with the fourth, and attempts to increase the bang you get from your well-earned buck. While much of the franchise's narrative framework is present, these LEGO adventures often emphasize on family-oriented material, such as platforming, co-operative team-building, puzzle solving and even at times malnutritioned mayhem-ing...Undoubtedly, the single greatest crowd-drawer Indy Jones 2 has going for it is its two-player, drop-in-drop-out co-op mode. From Triple-A titles such as Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2, Miami Vice fans have had their fair share of co-operative fixes this year. While the aforementioned titles are indeed runners for Game of the Year, Indy Jones 2 aims for a refreshingly different dance -- the tangos of the casual crowd...Again, while Indiana Jones 2 isn't the greatest game in the shed, enough of its proverbial willy-nilly whip hits and crackles. This year may be remembered as the revitalization of co-operative modes, and we're glad that even family-focussed titles are getting the attention and audience it deserves. While Traveller's Tale's latest LEGO venture sets the bar high for co-op-based titles, the recycled material has indeed passed its expiration date...There simply isn't enough content to sift through among the four Indiana Jones movies to warrant another sequel, as evidenced by the limited level design and lackluster cast of characters, relative to those seen in LEGO Star Wars. For a title that sells based on platforming with a pal, it was also disappointing to realize that there wasn't an online co-op mode. That said, the usual LEGO charm, casual puzzles, and broad-audience appeal of the visuals are all present. Strap in, grab your Fedora and buckle up with an (offline) mate, spouse, sibling or even child. For those that missed the first, this Indy adventure is as definitive as it gets. After all, you need to consider yourselves lucky - God forbid a LEGO Twilight in the near future.
