    All in all, it's amazing the amount of content that's packed into this game -- this is more than a sequel, even while including a redux of the first game's three movies.

    The established Lego game design wasn't broken, but, after so many games, it was beginning to get a bit stale. Those used to the previous titles might feel a bit disoriented at first, but you'll soon settle in and begin having fun exploring the large hubs and condensed levels.
  3. An epic Lego adventure spoiled only by a lack of guidance. [Jan 2010, p.90]

    While Telltale's latest LEGO venture sets the bar high for co-op-based titles, the recycled material has indeed passed its expiration date.
  5. The gameplay improvements were a welcome change and the new split screen is an essential new addition to Lego games. However, without the characters or story to hold it up, the game doesn't reach the height of its predecessors.
  6. Whatever its flaws, this game does a decent enough job of walking the line between sticking to the formula and mixing things up.
  7. Lego Indiana Jones 2 is a decent sequel, keeping the style of the original without changing the formula, which makes sure it will be enjoyed by those who liked the first game, but won't surprise anyone.

    There's quite a bit of new content here. [Issue#187, p.82]
  9. Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues was always going to feel a bit desperate, making the most out of a small amount of new content, but Traveller's Tales has done a decent job.
  10. Sure, the gameplay grew stale sooner than we expected, but it's hard resisting Lego Indiana Jones 2, especially once that familiar theme music kicks in. Just don't expect it to hold your attention for long.
  11. Lego Indiana Jones 2 searches for balance between all the previous Lego-games and the new elements introduced in this game. But the game never really feels like a classic. The Lego Creator, however, is fantastic. You can build whatever you want and that makes us very happy.
  12. It may not be very original, and the framerate isn't very good, but at the end of the day this is an entertaining game for both kids and adults.
  13. By no means the lazy cash-in you might expect, although neither is it the complete reinvention needed.
  14. LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is still a decent game but it’s a definite step backwards from the original.

    If you haven't played the first Lego Indy, this may still be a worthwhile purchase, but even then it's hard to recommend when you can't simply play through all of the original film's levels. Give this one a rent and see how you like it.
  16. Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is a small step back for a series that has so far always enjoyed those who want a light and fun game.

    This new part contains the story of the last movie, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Besides of that it also contains the three previous adventures, but only the most important parts of those games. And the last new feature is the level builder. It’s a nice game, but the previous one was a lot better.

    We don't advise to play this game alone but there's more then enough fun to explore when you play it co-op. The adventure continues!
  19. Lego Indiana Jones: The Adventure Continues is a fun game the play, with the great option to make your own levels, but it is a big shame that you can't share those levels with your friends!
  20. With lack of inspiration and some important mistakes, Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is a nice game, but far less brilliant than its previous effort.
  21. While I appreciate the desire to try something new with the game structure after so many titles, the resulting mishmash of ideas is frustrating, repetitive, and unfriendly to both kids and adults.
  22. Lego Indiana Jones 2 is probably the weakest of the series. It’s not a bad game, but more that the formula is getting a little old and if another title is due then some evolution is required.
  23. It's damn complicated. [Christmas 2009, p.111]
  24. 60
    If you haven't already played it, the original LEGO Indiana Jones is a much better purchase.
  25. We like the LEGO games a lot, but LEGO Indiana Jones 2 is the weakest of the recent pack by a wide margin. [Jan 2010, p.85]
