    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.
  2. Overall, LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is a great addition to Traveler's Tales LEGO games and a fun follow-up to first LEGO Indy title.

    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.
  4. Takes several steps forward and a few shuffles back. [Christmas 2009, p.64]
  5. A dizzying array of stuff will keep you tinkering for a while. [Christmas 2009, p.54]
  6. There's not much new here, but this is a gently humorous adventure that Indy fans will enjoy.
  7. Whatever its flaws, this game does a decent enough job of walking the line between sticking to the formula and mixing things up.
  8. 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.
  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. Lego Indiana Jones 2 demonstrates that combining a well ambientation and design with an excellent soundtrack, can make a game much better than it was. This rendition of the game exceed its first version.
  11. Indy’s newest adventure wasn’t built to last.
  12. The game is structured very well; each game section has its own massive hub world that ties everything together, and exploring every nook and cranny to find all the goodies can be pretty addictive. Too bad the actual gameplay isn't as compelling. [Holiday 2009, p.87]

    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.

    The main reason the sequel to one of my favorite Lego games fails is because it commits the cardinal sin of movie license games: it doesn't remain true to its source material. Indiana Jones 2 is awkwardly spread out amongst the four movies, bearing little to no resemblance to the films and containing barely finished levels that take mere minutes to complete. The game can be finished in an hour and there is little incentive to find all of the collectibles scattered throughout the world. In perhaps one of my least favorite video game boss fights ever, Indy has to fight the ants from Crystal Skull. Only this time, with "creative licensing", the ants transform into a Godzilla-like form that towers overhead, making me scratch my head and wonder what Indy would say if he saw what his adventures were being turned into. There are some fun moments, but a broken single player campaign, a poor create mode, and too much emphasis on an open world feel makes Indiana Jones 2 the lowest member of the LEGO franchise.

    3.5/10

    Just like Lego Star Wars III this game just doesn't have as much charm the original had the gameplay was too random and most of the time I was bored..

    The game is great, with tons of characters and 90 levels split across all four Indiana Jones movies. The one flaw in the game's design is the lack of minikits, making the free play useless and not providing an ultimate gameplay collection. The levels also have a lack of design, with many levels sharing similar objectives. However, I still find this to be one of the most fun LEGO games ever. Full Review »
