LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures Xbox 360 Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: There’s a new Indiana Jones movie out about now, so of course with it being a big one there’s going to be an equally big game tie in. This tie in will promise you the control of a photo realistic Indy (complete with Harrison Ford on voiceover duty) as he swings and whips his way through the same backdrops in the movie, here constructed out of thousands of polygons.

Conclusion: The graphics and audio are cool in their respective ways. Lego Indy doesn’t need stunning visuals, given the characters and world is mostly built with Lego pieces. However, the presentation is especially fun when you get so much from facial expressions and the way the scenes play out. Here, simplicity is the art. And the sounds that fill the game are mostly basic, particularly the mumbly dialogue spoken by the “actors.
LEGO Indiana Jones - The Original Adventures Review
24 November 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: Traveler’s Tales manages to improve on the
formula with their latest effort.
is a fun, accessible game that offers a little something to both hardcore gamers and the casual crowd—and it makes for a great way of bringing the two together thanks to the excellent co-op play. There are a few rough edges to be sure, but overall, this is a great game that should bring out the kid in everyone.
Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures – Review
17 August 2008
Excerpt: I’ve always thought that George Lucas’s archeology professor turned whip-smackin’ adventurer would be an excellent videogame hero. Unfortunately, most makers of movie-based games that I’ve played assume that I want to “relive” the movie in the most literal way. Running from one cut-scene to another—all of which I’ve seen already in the theater—doesn’t appeal to me, especially when all I’m doing is hacking monsters up and pushing boxes.
Excerpt: As its title suggests, LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures allows players to play through all three of the classic Indiana Jones films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade (sorry Crystal Skull fans, all three of you). Each movie is broken down into six chapters that you must complete in order. In other words, you can’t skip to The Last Crusade without completing both the Raiders of the Lost Ark and Temple of Doom storylines first.
Excerpt: After the success of the LEGO Star Wars series of video games, it’s no surprise other film and comic book franchises are lining up to get the block treatment. The Caped Crusader is set to appear later this fall in LEGO Batman: The Video Game but first, LucasArts and developer TT Games have teamed up again for LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. So grab your whip and fedora hat, and let’s see how this latest LEGO inspired adventure stacks up.
Conclusion: The only thing is that we were looking forward to more innovative elements, next to Indiana's unique abilities, swinging and climbing on ropes and such. The gameplay style is getting a bit stale at this point. Regardless, the game should be a part of your collection. It's an excellent way to unwind and have some fun with the amusing characters and hilarious dialogue-free cut-scenes.
Pros: Fun co-op, hilarious characters and cut-scenes, plenty to collect and unlock, fun for the whole family, basically, crisp clean graphics and excellent sound;
Cons: Gameplay gets a bit repetitive (the puzzles in particular), not all that fun as a single-player experience, could fail to entertain most mature gamers.
