Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (Xbox 360)
The Review Busters
30 November 2008
Conclusion: Traveller’s Tale has once again made another great Lego experience. These sort of games might seem like they are for children, but in reality these are the sort of games that hardcore gamers will enjoy. You can pretty much complete this game in no more than five hours so the $49.99 asking cost might seem too steep to some.

LEGO Indiana Jones - The Original Adventures Review
30 September 2008
Excerpt: There's something undeniably appealing about Lego games. I wasn't even a big Lego fan as a kid, but seeing classic characters and moments from film play out as if performed by a group of seven-year-olds is something most people will enjoy. It's this universal appeal that has given the previous Lego games such success and which should see Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures riding high in the charts for some time.
Summary: I really came into this with high hopes for
Lego Indiana Jones
. The very idea of it brought pleasant childhood memories to the fore, so I really did want the game to be good. Perhaps that very eagerness led to somewhat more disappointment than would have otherwise been elicited by the ultimate banality of the proceedings. Having said that, if you’re one of those who enjoyed
Lego Star Wars
, you should have fun playing
Lego Indiana Jones
Pros: Great looking game (in the sense of being cute and Lego-like), Fans of the Indiana Jones movies should appreciate it
Cons: The characters babbling is more pronounced and annoying than a Diamanda Galas album, It’s too easy to die, and dying doesn’t matter a whit, since you’re resurrected immediately and without penalty.
PS2 Review - 'LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures'
30 July 2008
Summary: LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a tongue-in-cheek take on the first three cinematic adventures of pop culture's most iconic archaeologist, including Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Temple of Doom and the Last Crusade.
Conclusion: Lego Indiana Jones serves as the expected progression from the Lego Star Wars games. The great pacing, humorous cutscenes, and challenging-but-not-cheap puzzles make this the most enjoyable Lego game yet. It's not the hardest game, but it has enough hidden goodies to make you play through more than once. Both newcomers and diehard fans of Traveller's Tales' previous Lego offerings will find plenty to enjoy here.
Pros: Great offline cooperative play, Fun puzzles, Tons of replay value, Very funny.
