LEGO Indiana Jones
Lego Indy Disappointing
As a father of a nine year old and a big fan of the original Indy movies, I couldn’t wait to buy this game and have some “father & son” time on the ol’ Xbox 360. Lego Star Wars was so good; Lego Indy just HAD to be great as well, WRONG! The game is not nearly as entertaining as Lego Star Wars, and we had finished the game after only about three hours of game play! We were looked at each other and said “that’s it?!” I realize we now have the free play option, but my son (and I) found that the re-play value was almost non-existent compared with the re-play value of Lego Star Wars, for example, and my son asked if we could return the game for something else. I was shocked, when you pay a more than a few bucks for the game, you expect it to hold your attention for more than three hours! It now makes me suspect of buying the Lego Batman when it comes out, will it be equally as abbreviated??!! I recommend Lego Indy as a one night rental at best!
Solid clean fun
Over the years I have seen the gaming franchise grow into something any gender and age can relate to. These days it takes a lot to satisfy the hardcore gamers. A developer needs fresh new material to keep you occupied and not wanting to lay the the controller down. Lego Indiana Jones is the first Lego edition I have played on the 360. I must say I was rather impressed with this game. It gave me that Super Mario feeling I use to get when playing Nintendo as a wee lad. Taking time off from dismembering body parts on Gears of War and cracking the old whip has made for a great experience. After completing the main story you don't even come close to finishing this game 100%. You still have the options to go back to each level and discover remaining artifacts, mail parcels, and unlocking hidden levels and characters. With all that said this game will give you many hours and pump that gamer score up a bit. Lucas Arts delivered a good solid fun game that any age can have fun with. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
awesomely cool but needs a bigger arsenal
awesome game and i think that you should get it it has a good amount of everything except weapons that you can get from create-a-person, i like the extras like x3840 and fast build/dig
I like this game, and I am a HUGE lego fan. In this game you are Indiana Jones, going on all different adventures. The controls are very simple, here they are: press A to jump, control stick to move, B to use the whip, X to attack enemys, and Y to switch characters. When you go on adventures, you can do two modes, one is story mode, and two is free play mode. You need to complete a level in story mode to do it on free play. On your adventure you have a partner with you. That player has a ability that you may not have, so he is there to help on your adventure. The graphics and animation is great. The people look just like REAL legos. Believe me, I'm not kidding. The lengths of the game is long. I can't even name how many levels there are. Here are some things I forgot to tell you. In free play mode, you get to pick one character to use, and then it will automaticly give you a team that should help you. And also you can do multiplayer by having a person turn on their controller and press start, when in the game. And one more thing, you can save profiles so people can go back to where they left off. I would reccomend this game for people who like legos and people who like videogames. So go out and buy yourself a copy today!
Lego whips up a gem!
Lego Indiana Jones is an entertaining game that has the feel of the classic films. The game sounds amazing and when the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme song plays, you want to jump up and and punch the air. The graphics are good for a game filled with Legos. Indiana Jones is obviously the character everyone wants to play as, and he should be the only character you should play as. Indy's whip is so much fun to use and the things you can do to take down enemies are hilarious. The supporting characters are a great venture back to the film trilogy but they all basically have the same abilities and nothing to set them apart from each other. The game is great for those young and old, and the semi-challenging puzzles keep the game entertaining rather than being mundane. I bought the game and have no regrets. This game is a great addition to your video game collection, ESPECIALLY if you're a fan of the films.
Another Great "Lego" Game
My wife picked this up yesterday, played about 3 hours of it. She is getting a controller for both of us to play. The Lego Star Wars games were great, this one is bigger. Puzzles are challenging, longer, and the detail in the graphics, even though they are legos, is incredible. Wonderful sound, great controls, and just plain fun. It is not as easy as the Star Wars ones. Some battles/scenes are plain HARD! Co-op is really needed to help in the hard battles. I like how the movie scenes are recreated, but to be lego and "clean" for kids, many "killings/deaths" from the movies are not in there. Example: When Indy comes out of the cave in Ark and his guide is dead with the darts in the back, he is just on the side of the bad guys. Still, this doesn't take away from the comedy and there are Star Wars references in the game, some hidden! Don't hesitate to buy this game if you liked the other Lego games!
This is worth the money
Lego Indiana Jones is so worth the money. The storyline is so accurate and the Animation is funny. They should let you change the the camera angle a little.The challenges are puzzling like the movies. When my friend brought it over I was exited. We played co op forever we finished the Raiders of the Lost Ark and it was fun and like the movie. Some of the action scenes were awsome and the puzzles during the battles were kind of tough trying to figure them out while fighting. Some of the fights do require a friend. When you play with a friend it is fun and you all have a great time. The sound is amazing the sound of the legos snaping apart is the funniest sound on the game. Some of the sounds of the jungle is pretty funny like the snakes and the elephants in the temple of doom. If they come out with a lego indiana jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull game it will be worth the money as well.
Speak, Dr. Jones
LEGO Games are always entertaining. LEGO Star Wars was awesome, but LEGO Indy doesn't provide that same entertainment. If you saw all three of the original Indiana Jones movies, then this game is for you. Because of the mime-like communication between the characters, the story is barely impossible to understand. All you hear in the cutscenes are "Hmm...HmmHmm...Hmmmmmm..." Unlike LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Indy is focused on puzzle solving, which is easy. There is only one tedious puzzle in which it is almost impossible to get True Adventurer (a point in the game where you collect enough studs to fill a meter up) on. There are over 60 characters, 59 in which you don't want to play. One neat idea is character customazation, which can be used on Indy or an Egyptian bandit. If you want your money's worth out of this game, get the Xbox 360 version, in which you can boost you achievement score substantially. If you haven't seen all three movies, don't buy this game. If you are a LEGO fan, play the demo. If you have a Xbox 360, get this game. If you have all of those things, definitely get this game.
We all just have to face that all lego games like lego star wars, lego star wars 2 and the complete saga are all amazing and most likely one of the best kids games out there. But this one might be one of the most confusing and irritating ones also. For example the camera angles are just really, really bad. I know they were like that for all of them but this one might be the worst. Second of all I hate that half the puzzles in this game are like some of the hardest things I've ever done in a video game ever. The puzzles are just so far fetched it's not even anything to laugh at. For example the temple of doom puzzles are pretty much the hardest ones in the game. They consist of so much jumping, switching characters and throwing your controller on the ground that you probably wont even want to play again. I say just rent it.
Ah, the classics
This game is nothing like the modern lego games. There are no saves, there are no open worlds to explore, and some minkits are a flat out pain to get. Come on we all know what I'm talking about, the one at the very end of the boulder run that if you die too many times you miss it as it jumps to a cutscene. Classic lego games. If you're a fan of Indiana Jones then get it, and no this isn't tainted by the crystal skull either. The 3 original Indy movies are the plots to this game. Not too challenging, but again nothing like the now a day lego games that are definitely a welcome improvement, but much simpler to beat.
