  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The shift in focus from combat to puzzles suits the theme, but it's somewhat marred in execution.

    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 betterThis 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 »
