    It's certainly a lot of fun, but TT Games is able to churn out this sort of game with its eyes closed and sadly it's beginning to show. [Issue#167, p.84]
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. This is great, but expect repetitive block smashing and item collecting that, in this third LEGO game, has overstayed its welcome.

    Dull levels and characters, but the Lego block puzzles are as unique as ever. [July 2008, p.74]
  6. The platforming and combat are both pretty straightforward; the game’s main challenge is its puzzles, of which there are plenty.

    This is a game that definitely rewards exploration. [July 2008, p.76]
  8. While not a bad game, our overriding feeling while playing Lego Indiana Jones was that we really wanted to play through Lego Star Wars again. The game works, for all its glitches, and will undoubtedly provide a good few hours of co-op fun with a like-minded second player. Nevertheless, the painful fact is that Lego fatigue has set in far sooner than we had expected it to.
  9. In LEGO Star Wars you were mostly doing power attacks on your enemies, in Indiana Jones the adventure and puzzle elements are more important.
  10. Sure, it's too easy, very similar to Star Wars, and once completed doesn't offer a huge amount of replayability, but what there is represents good value for money.
  11. Perhaps the worst thing you can say about Lego Indy is that it is not as instantly likeable as the Lego Star Wars games, and that it’s more of a relationship you’ll have to work at instead of being the love at first sight Travellers Tales' previous efforts were.
  12. After Lego Batman comes out, though, I hope Traveller’s Tales takes a good look at where its Lego games are going and makes the tweaks and additions necessary to keep the franchise relevant.

    Great game. I picked this up last night as my wife and I loved playing Lego Star Wars Complete together (we made it to 95% complete on that). Great game. I picked this up last night as my wife and I loved playing Lego Star Wars Complete together (we made it to 95% complete on that). I was worried at first as there is less fighting in this (no lightsabers, not a lot of guns, etc.), no force powers, etc. and it is more puzzle driven. Rest assured nothing to worry about! The puzzles are fun (true puzzles or just avoiding all the various temple traps), there is still fighting (can pick up environmental things to fight with like spears on the ground, grab enemy guns, etc), and the graphics are amazing. You can now SWING on ropes, wood-plank bridges bob when you walk on them, vehicles are better (a wood raft sinks slightly in the water when you get on, and you paddle with a shovel), you can SWIM now, use an awning as a trampoline, and probably several things I have not seen yet. All in all it's a great game. If you liked Lego:SW you will like this game. Full Review »
