Summary: Was somewhat disappointed in this game we bought as a present for our 7 year old grandson. It is jerky (i.e. not smooth) and difficult for him to follow. He played with it for a while and went to another Wii game. This was a present he requested.
Fun, but glitchy, counterintuitive, and way more frustrating than Lego Star Wars

Summary: The LucasArts team definitely knows what they're doing - Lego Star Wars is a creative, fun game for the Wii. I've probably spent more time playing and replaying that game than any other I own. Which makes Lego Indy so frustrating. This game is so much tougher, so counterintuitive, so unresponsive, and so glitchy that I won't ever attempt to replay it. I've simply wasted too much time trying to get it to work.
Summary: This would be an excellent game if it weren't for lots and lots of gliches. My wife and I are almost at the game of the game and have to quit playing, because a glich won't let us continue. There are treasures that we have gotten and it didn't give us credit for, but they also don't show up again. Also the game has locked up several times and we had to unplug the system, it wouldn't let us reset it. I would have given this game 5 stars, if it weren't for all the bugs.
Summary: Very fun game, but be prepared for some frustration due to some glitchy game play. Once, my Indy was riding an elephant and he fell into this canyon, so I assumed he would just die and I'd get my guy back. NO! He was down in the hole with the elephant but I couldn't see him at all and I had to abort the level and start over. On each level, there are 10 treasure to find. Once, the game gave me credit for 11!
Summary: I am not a big Wii gamer. I have Star Wars in which I love playing. This game is fun, but its hard to get across some of the obstacles and gets so frustrating I just turn it off and play another game. I guess I have limited patience, but this game is fun, but 3 out of 5 stars due to how complex it can be sometimes compared to other Wii games I play !
Not as fun as LEGO Star Wars...but passes the time.

Summary: I purchased this after loving LEGO Star Wars...I must admit I was a little disappointed with LEGO Indiana Jones. It is extremely easy to collect "LEGO pieces" to get the status "True Adventurer"...unlike Star Wars where you really had to work at collecting them to reach "True Jedi". Overall this game is fun but at times a little boring.
Summary: Having beaten the main levels so far, I have to say Indiana Jones was a vast disappointment for me. I adored Star Wars, but Jones is missing things that really appealed to me. The biggest fail I found was the lack of things to do in the home area. In Star Wars there were so many things (and people!) to chop and shoot, but you can't even attack people in the college.
Summary: We got the wii at the height of Indiana Jones mania in our house. My son age 7, really wanted to try this game so we rented it and he enjoyed it very much. However, the game was tough to figure out, for us non-serious "gamers". We would never have made it through several of the levels without going online and reading the walkthroughs. Also, the levels were SOOOO long!
