LEGO Indiana Jones - The Original Adventures Review
1 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.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game adds a humorous spin to the retelling of the first three Indiana Jones movies. While an understanding of the movies helps you to appreciate the humor in the game, the puzzle adventure game is compelling by itself, so kids don't need to have seen the movies to...
Excerpt: Like the LEGO Star Wars games, you have the task of finding and collecting pieces of LEGO in a big, cute world in LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. The environments and plots are very similar to the movies.
Pros: Fun movie adaptation, lots of puzzles, 60 characters, Freeplay mode
Cons: No online play, some aiming issues, can only save games at the end of each level
Excerpt: LEGO Indiana Jones is the fourth LEGO inspired title to come from Traveler Tales, and the first one that is not based on the Star Wars property. However, the family fun that was in all previous LEGO titles swings back onto the screen with this latest Wii game.
Excerpt: Three years ago, when the original LEGO Star Wars was released, nobody imagined it would become a sensation among kids of all ages. How else can you explain why George Lucas didn't release the game through LucasArts, but instead let it come out via Eidos, which had the LEGO license?
