Summary: This game is really awesome! This was my second lego game (First being lego world creator) And it did not disappoint. At the time I got this, the only console I had was a PC. This is a pretty good version. Expect a few faults in the artifact hunting though. There are a few levels where the high processing power needed sort of slowed gameplay down. It would have been better if my computer was meant for gaming. I found a way around this though.
Summary: This lego game is pretty fun. Its the same at the other versions but on a computer. The gameplay is fun with the small puzzles and action around you. The customization is always fun with the lego video games. The cutscenes are funny as always. If you're a Indiana Jones fan get this fun game.
Summary: . . . The world of action/adventure gets flipped on its head! Whereas the Indiana Jones movies are quite serious, the world of LEGO Indiana Jones video-games are extremely hilarious! LEGO Indy (my nickname for this game) is bursting at the studs with magnificent humour that players of all ages are sure to enjoy!
Summary: So I'm giving this game a 2 out of 5 not because it's a bad game (I can't tell you that) but because it has a few bugs that make it hard (or in my case impossible) to install and play it. I'm sure this game is great like all the others in the lego franchise, and there's nothing physically wrong with the product BUT after I successfully installed the game it refuses to open because of a conflict. I contacted customer support for the game itself and they're no help at all!
Summary: Love it for my kids, can't get them off of it from morning to night. Very good game all what I expected in the game and more! Thanks for a great game as in description and to lego/lucas arts for this game! Great price for a Great Game! Thanks again!
Excerpt: "This game was one of the first I played on the PC. At the time when this came out I didnt own a PC and spent days round at my neighbours house "borrowing" his PC so I could play the game. A very simple game but highly addictive. A game you will want to spend hours on and when your not on it you will be thinking about it! The graphics are not the games strong point, but to say this game is about 10 years old what do you expect. At the time of ...
Excerpt: "Colonization is another game written by the undisputed king of the turn based strategy game genre. Following the same sort of line as the Civilisation series, Sid Meier takes us on a historical trip to the year 1492, and the colonization of the America's. Being an old game now, the system requirements of this game are very low. In fact this should run quite smoothly on anything over 100MHz. 16MB RAM is also plenty, and hard drive space required ...
Excerpt: "...is also responsible for the Civilization and Railroad Tycoon ranges. Before i start with this review, i should probably say now that this will contain no technical computer lingo-i will freely admit that i am a stereotypical female who doesnt understand all the technical 'requirements' etc for a game, but these will all be displayed on the box when you buy it, so i neednt comment really.....(feeble excuse i know). What i hope to give in this opinion ...
Pros: Each new game has a slightly different scenario
Cons: i have trouble winning (but i think thats just me - my dad has more success ! )
Excerpt: "The first thing you notice about this game is it's low level of graphics and sound. It's true: they are very clunky and poor. But then again, the game fits on a floppy or two - which is very different to the games of today! Underneath the very dated exterior there is an absolutely monsterously addictive game beneath. It's such fun: the colours are bright and the history is quite accurate (if a little hard to the British). In fact, I found the game ...
Pros: great fun, good historical concept
Cons: very dated graphics . . . but not a fatal problem !
Excerpt: "I picked up Colonization fairly cheaply in a two pack with Civilisation, and I must say it was more than worth the price I paid. Think about when you are playing Civ, and click on a city, you see a little map in one corner. You can click on the map to move the production areas - instead of working on the water and producing food, you can work the mountains and mine ore. Do you know what I am talking about? Well, Colonization is effectively playing ...
Pros: Fun, addictive
Cons: Poor graphics and sound, but good for it's time .
