"Brutally beating Short Round into a pile of bloody plastic giblets fourteen times removes all feelings of antipathy you've ever had towards him."

Well, usually I hold off on writing a review until after I've finished a game, but I have a lot to say about this one and I remember most of it anyway.

When I was about 8 or 9, I played hours of this with my younger brother. Never mind that we only had one keyboard to share, the disc froze up more often than not, and we were both pretty bad at it, we loved every moment anyway. I just bought it again today, and surprise! it's still good. Clearly a labor of love, if a little unpolished.

What isn't good game design is goofy and/or funny. What isn't goofy and/or funny is good game design. What isn't either of those is probably a little broken. Anything else is either John Williams' score or a plug for Lego Star Wars, and those both speak for themselves. Overall, this comes highly recommended. Everyone should have it.

P.S. Also, it has really good animations. My personal judge of graphics is it's not so much the models and textures themselves, but more the animations, sound quality, etc. That has to be believable. The caricatures of humans and animals in Looney Tunes, for example, look far more lifelike than the supposedly "realistic" carved wooden blocks representing humans in Deus Ex.

One of my favourite Lego games. Probably the best. Played it a lot on the PS3, just starting to play it again on Steam.

This is my favorite "early" Lego game. Now, with LOTR, POTC, and Batman 2, these games have complex "hub worlds" and hundreds of collectables of different sorts. This game, Star Wars, and Batman (1) were the original Lego games with a bunch of characters, 10 minikit pieces per level, and not much else. They seem basic compared to games like Lego LOTR, but this game, Indiana Jonse 1, was the best of the original lego games. It has the best level design, a broad selection of the characters you'd want, a great soundtrack, and a general sense of completeness. It has everything you'd want in a Lego Indy game (if you are not a big Crystal Skull fan--which I am not). Some things about this game that are different from other early Lego games: You can pick up weapons (a fallen foe's scimitar, a native's spear, a Nazi's rifle). It adds variety to mashing the fight button. The game makes good use of Indy's whip. It also reminds you of how great all three individual soundtracks were, and the difference between them. Highly recommended for the casual player or devoted collector-type. :)

Any game that lets you beat Short Round to death with a shovel over and over with no penalty instantly is okay by me. (no but seriously this game is pretty okay if you're looking for a casual little time waster)
