Review of Lego Indiana Jones

by jqcampsie@gmail.com on 6/24/2008

It's one of the best games I have ever played. It is very similar to Lego Starwars 3 the Original Saga for DS except for the levels,characters,and Building. Plus there are two custom characters. You can use any weapon or body part to make your character. I highly recommend this game. Take my advice - GET THIS GAME!!!!!! An absolute must-have!!!!.......Ben. Read More

Great game!

by Travis on 6/27/2008

I bought this game for my six year old son for his birthday and it became his favorite game. It has (lego version) video clips of scenes from the first 3 movies and lots of adventure. He really liked the lego version of Star Wars so this was a natural for him. The game is well designed and thought out. Both he and his older brother (age 9) thoroughly enjoyed the game (and even watched the movies on DVD after playing so they could compare things they played in the game). Read More

Review Traveller's Tales is back and tackling the plastic building block world again. After exhausting the Star Wars franchise with no less than three LEGO Star Wars releases, the company has worked with LucasArts on bringing another of its franchises to the peg-filled universe with LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures...If you've played any of the LEGO Star Wars titles, you'll feel right at home as the formula has largely remained exactly the same, right down to the control scheme. There is a bit more adventuring this time around however, with more emphasis placed on solving puzzles and collecting keys or parts to unlock the next area, though mashing everything in sight and collecting as many Studs as possible is still the main gameplay focus...A somewhat big difference between the Star Wars and Indiana Jones LEGO games is the focus of combat. While most characters either had a lightsaber or blaster in the Star Wars titles, the combat in LEGO Indy is largely hand-to-hand. You can pick up guns that enemies drop, but they're only good for a few shots before they expire. While this is mostly fine, it can be a little frustrating when there are a group of armed enemies on-screen and you have no choice but to repeatedly jump while running at them in order to try and dodge their shots. You will inevitably get hit and probably even die a few times in the scuffle. While you have infinite lives of course, it's still frustrating to know that you don't really have a good chance of coming out unscathed in these encounters and simply have to bear down and charge until everyone is dead...Traveller's Tales has once again delivered an experience that boils down to smashing stuff over and over again while searching for secrets, while also managing to make that formula fun and addictive. It's certainly not a huge leap over the LEGO Star Wars titles, and in fact still has some of that series' issues, but it's no less enthralling and certainly a fun adventure worth taking on.
