Summary: Bought this movie for the kiddo. He loves all the Indiana Jones movies and Lego games so thought he would enjoy this too. He likes it. The graphics are great, the story line is good. Easy enough for a young teen but still fun enough for adults too. The game is not about any of the movies though-it is is own story line.
Summary: This game was originally going to be on PS3 and 360 and was to showcase technologies like euphoria and DMM (Digital Molecular Matter), similar to "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed". Unfortunately, for unknown reasons, it ended up being ported to secondary consoles (PSP, PS2, Wii, DS) only. This is apparently what remains of the project. What there is is a pretty mixed bag.
Summary: I had high expectations for this game. This game has been hyped so much, that I thought that this could be a challenge to the Tomb Raider Series. After seeing this game through, I can that Lara Croft has nothing to worry about. I was hoping that this would turn out to be a great adventure game with a great storyline.
An Excellent and Fun Game to Play (With Final Boss Walkthrough)

Summary: In spite of the poor reviews obtained so far, I really enjoyed this game. I enjoyed it because it was something most anyone who has seen the Indiana Jones films can relate to. Granted, I was expecting more puzzle solving, and more climbing around in Tombs and Temples like TR, but over all, this game did well enough to stand on its own two feet. I liked the music, as its the same as the sound track from the feature films.
Summary: this is by far the worst indiana jones games yet it is just so hard and complicatded because.It's kinda cool how you can throw stuff but that get's kind of boring to.So if i where you i wouldn't get this game. p.s.
Summary: First, it's a shame that 5 years after it was announced for next gen systems it only made it to the Wii, PSP and PS2. Otherwise for the PSP it's a fun game and not at all what I expected. Initally I thought it was going to imitate it's biggest immitator (Tomb Raider) but Indiana Jones is actually more of a beat'em up puzzler. To win levels, you have to beat X amount of enemies within a certain time or escape a building or whatever the objective is.
Excerpt: Indiana Jones’s cinematic exploits have played a huge role in shaping adventure video games down the years. Without him, where would Lara Croft have found the inspiration for all her tomb raiding? More recently, witnessing Nathan Drake fling himself through lost cities, springing traps and collecting priceless artefacts in Uncharted , it’s easy to see the similarity in themes.
Pros: Good voicing; some variety to the level design; solid visuals
Cons: Lacklustre soundtrack; basic, unadventurous gameplay; erratic camera
