  1. The addictive gameplay, well-rendered graphics (even on an aged system), easy control scheme, innovative cooperative features and tons of replay value make for a winner.
  2. Lego Indiana Jones’s success comes from keeping the fun gameplay of the Lego Star Wars games, but injecting the classic Indy moments, music, and characters
  3. It's not perfect - but the humour, drama and pure fun of Lego Indy will keep you hooked to the end. [July 2008, p.60]
  4. The third time is the charm for Traveller's Tales--logical puzzles and great offline co-op play make this the best Lego game yet.
  5. Like Lego Star Wars before it, it's a worthy homage to a classic movie franchise.
  6. 80
    Even if you make only one trip through LEGO Indiana Jones, it'll be a great ride.
  7. Traveller's Tales is still very much inside its Lego comfort zone, and that's not a bad thing - fans of their previous games will find a lot to like here.
  8. LEGO Indy is a step above the Star Wars titles, and is a must-get for any fans of the whip-cracking archeologist.
  9. Doesn't quite live up to its Star Wars cousins, mainly due to the fact that Star Wars is simply a more memorable series, but it's still a brilliant adventure and great fun.
  10. The magic just isn’t here. Repeating the success of Star Wars with a radically different license requires more than Star Wars as a foundation. It really never finds Indiana Jones’ pulse, and ends up being somewhat of a mess, albeit a moderately fun one.
  11. The shift in focus from combat to puzzles suits the theme, but it's somewhat marred in execution.
  12. While I didn't enjoy Lego Indiana Jones as much as I had hoped, it's still a solid game and it's target audience (kids who love all things Indy, even Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) will find a lot to like here.

    This is definitely the best of all non-talking Lego games. I have not played any of the talking ones, however. This game is able to do better with what Lego Star Wars 2 had, and included things that Lego Batman didn't. For example, there are many variations of the characters you can use for each ability, including all custom characters have a whip. In Lego Batman, there were only 2 Jokers, you pretty much needed Poison Ivy and many other characters every time. The suits of Batman and Robin that were useless except if specifically needed (all of them) were annoying to go through, also. Lego Indy has great game play, CPUs that make you do the puzzles, but are smart enough to follow you when you do something. I also liked the "Press the Triangle button to switch for the puzzle". I also liked how instead of having you just pick something up to get the power-up, you actually had to solve a puzzle most of the time. It just had a lot of great things the other games did not. Also, the addition of the "save and quit to Barnett College" was one of the most useful things in this game. Love it! Full Review »

    Cool game but I kind of got bored after I finished the game. That's usually the low point of games with levels.

    A very very nice game. Very entertaining and very funny. The cut scenes are interesting as everything in the game is made of lego. This is a must have game for Indiana Jones Fans, as the game takes them through the first 3 of the series. It is a disappointment however, that The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull was not included. The extra features(like Young Indy) can make the games length extended. The music also originally came from the movie itself. Full Review »
