Summary: This game is fun to play but has some issues. It freezes in a couple of spots if you play for an extended period of time (more than 45 min). Usually turning the console off and letting it sit for awhile solves the problem. This seems to be a problem for most of the people that bought this game. For me it will be a one time game. I will probably sell/trade it in after I'm through it. Maybe for a younger player it will be more entertaining.
Summary: It's not bad, but this game does not have the same sense of fun and creativity front he other Lego games I've played. Part of this may be the nature of the source material, as Indiana Jones movies are generally Indy and a sidekick or two as compared to the larger ensemble casts of the Star Wars movies.
Summary: I purchased this as a stocking stuffer for my grandson of 8 years. Today, as I was inquiring after the variety of lego based games he received, he commented that this one was more difficult than the others and he did not enjoy playing it as much as a result. Some quick background on him is that he has been to legoland and has put together several of the 200+ piece assemblies rated up to 12 years old.
Summary: I really enjoy playing this game so far. It is definitely more fun than anything else I've played on DS; however, there are two major annoyances that are causing me to question if this game is worth it. One thing buyers should be aware of is that the game requires a lot of time spent on it at once. As another user mentioned, you can't save it whenever you want, which is EXTREMELY inconvenient.
There are better games out there, but good for a bit of fun.

Excerpt: Lego Indiana Jones follows in the footsteps of the other Lego adventures such as Star Wars and Batman. A friend of mine has the Star Wars game and he wasn't very impressed with it, so I was a bit dubious about this game, especially as i had not played any of the Lego games before, but I am a big fan of the Indiana Jones films. My initial reaction was of disappointment. I found the game quite hard to control and i wasn't really sure what i was doing.
Excerpt: Another Lego Game for the DS. First Starwars, then Batman, and no INDIANA!!! Very similar to the previous games mentioned, anyone can pick this game up, you can be into adventure/platform/puzzle games, or even just a fan of the movie. You'll enjoy this charming game as you work yourself through it unlocking new characters and stages to play. Trying to work out how to reach those ever so unseemingly unreachable places.
