    The good is that they incorporated some new moves. I dig the choke hold's, that was fun. it's almost like the chainsaw in gears where you never get tired of it. You can now pick up weapons and they make really good use of indy's whip. The big jump for the girls is >alright<. You dont use it too much but it helps. First movie is fun.

You can now pick up weapons and they make really good use of indy's whip. The big jump for the girls is >alright<. You dont use it too much but it helps. First movie is fun. The puzzles are interesting but not too hard. 2nd movie is awful, almost requiring you to have to run two players or even more idiotic the other player to drop out so you can see the items. And I've got a decent sized flat panel lcd! The 3rd is better than the 2nd but not as good as one. Puzzles are a little less all over the place. The graphics are..well it's the wii. wii's graphics are a joke but it's what you expect if you played the star wars games. The cut scenes are still a laugh, some much better than others whereas the star wars was solid all the way through. I hate to compare it but you just have to because of it's glaring overall terribadness. It's not a must have, you'll get a few hours of enjoyment but it's not a worthwhile purchase either. Expand

    Unfortunately, this game boils down to being much less fun compared to LEGO Star Wars. Sure, it has the same formula and look, but it simply isn't handled as well. Although the game does have the Indiana Jones feel, it just doesn't work for a game like this that is mostly about puzzles. The game is hard to play without two players, and is lacking much needed split-screen. A lot of the gameUnfortunately, this game boils down to being much less fun compared to LEGO Star Wars.

The game is hard to play without two players, and is lacking much needed split-screen. A lot of the game forces you to NOT be Indiana Jones, which isn't fun if you have to be someone stupid like Satipo or Willie. The game does a good job with some of the movies' best moments, but some like the Boulder Chase and the Mine cart scene, are poorly handled. The vehicle segments are handled terribly as well. Though there are worse Indiana Jones games out there, people might want to avoid this game unless they are a big fan of the movies. Expand

    Same dumb but fun game, sans the appeal of Star Wars. My 5-year-old likes it, but it's too complicated for him to play alone, especially given the 2-player puzzle bent. Heck, some of the puzzles take a vet like me a while to figure out.

    Ultimately, the main draw of LEGO Indiana Jones is playing through many of the movies' most memorable moments in the charming LEGO style, and the game definitely succeeds in doing that. [July 2008, p.87]

    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.

    As enjoyable as the game is, it's even more fun with a second player (although there's no online play, sadly).
