Summary: The original star wars lego was the best. The original batman lego was the worst. This lies somewhere in between. As most of you know, these games are not really accurate with the movie story lines, but has enough to know which movie you are playing in. They really needed to expand the chapters as they felt short.
Summary: My husband & I have played several of the Lego games: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman are a few of them. This one is little more confusing. It took me some time paying it by myself to realize that you don't have one central place to start from to go to each level or to buy characters or extras. I've actually had to go online a few times to find a walkthrough to help us get through the game which we almost never did on the other games.
Summary: This is a great game, I have th first Indiana jones on Xbox as well, but they are totally different, and this one is very fun. Would recommend this game for anyone who likes a challenge in a fun interesting themed game. Have fun to all!!!
Summary: My 3 year old and 6 year old love the game, and I like playing it with them. It has some similar, but not duplicate, material compared to Lego Indy 1, which covered movies 1-3, and also has lots of stuff from Crystal Skull (movie 4). The game play is different (mostly improved), but overall the game is not as good as Indy 1. (I'm not so bothered with the liberties they took with the plot. It's a game, not the movie!
A solid if unspectacular addition to the Lego Franchise

Summary: My wife and I enjoy the Lego games and having successfully completed the first Lego Indiana Jones we were keen to pick up this installment. Travelers Tales definitely tried some new things with this Lego game, for starters the have largely eschewed the central hub area and now each chapter of the game has it's own mini hub area where the story progresses and bonus levels and items are unlocked.
Summary: I have played all of the Lego games except for the new Harry Potter series. This has been my least favorite so far for a couple of reasons. First, they took some pretty big liberties with the story line. The original IJ game followed the movies pretty closely. This one created new boss monsters that had nothing to do with the movies. I am a purist when it comes to continuity, so this was annoying.
Not the same caliber as other Lego titles and lacks longevity

Summary: I have been a big fan of the various "Lego" game offerings and when I heard they were coming out with a sequel to the Indy game I anxiously counted down the days until release. Unfortunately I'm disappointed with this game. It's just not the same caliber as the other Lego games and they've changed some of the general feel of game play that gave the others their "character" and longevity (to continue playing). We've played the other games over and over again.
Summary: I was so excited when I heard that a second Lego Indy was coming out so imagine my disappointment when all of the things that I loved about the first one are not there. The biggest disappointment is you can't cycle through the characters like before. If you have to do a challenge that requires specific characters, you have to wander throughout the entire level to find the ones that you need and then go back to complete the challenge.
Summary: Lego Indiana Jones 2 is not a step forward for the Lego franchise. If you haven't played all of the other titles (particularly the Lego Star Wars series) you should definitely pick them up first. LIJ2 isn't a bad game, but you should only pick it up if you've finished the other games and and are a rabid Lego game fan.
