I have played probably something like 20 hours on my Wii when I first got this game. To this day it still is one of my favourite games. However this PC port has more than a few glitches or bugs, sometimes causing the level to be uncompleteable. Still it is a very good game that I recommend fully.

This iteration of the Lego Indiana Jones game is better than the 2nd one, although it's not without its faults.

Playing this game basically is just as much about running around and collecting crap as it is playing through a story. I wish there was more interaction besides just smashing things and building just what is needed to solve the puzzle, etc. but that is true about all Lego games.

The controls take a lot of getting used to, and sometimes the one or two comrades with you get in the way of jumping, causing you to fall to your death and lose the Lego pieces you collected. Sometimes, they even work against you by undoing something you just moved, etc after switching to a separate character (Well of Souls, I'm looking at you).

Combat is pretty much a Three Stooges free for all, and there is little skill or aiming required - it's basically a bash fest, and in some places there are so many characters all crammed together you can't even see what's happening - you pretty much just mash the buttons and hope for the best. I wound up waxing my partner more than once because aiming any gun seems to go right for him or her. And speaking of guns, I know this game is targeted at little kids, but as a paying customer adult I would have appreciated the ability to use guns for more than a few seconds at a time.

I agree with another reviewer on here somewhere that the Star Wars Lego game (the Complete Saga) seemed to best follow the plot/happenings of those movies. This one...ehh, not so much - the game makers took a lot of liberties with what happens in the various plot lines here. Don't expect a complete telling of the stories, nor any accuracy for any specific parts of them either. While I'm at it, the Last Crusade levels pretty much suck A$$, and I dread having to go back and replay them (you'll see).

Despite all of this, the graphics are nice, and the game makers continue their light-hearted tradition of making fun of the movies the game is based on.

While this is definitely an OK game, it's sad that there hasn't been a "true" Indiana Jones game since Emperor's Tomb, and I really wish someone would make one.

I'll recommend it for what it is, and because it keeps Dr Jones in the mix. Buy it on sale.

If you like A. Indiana Jones and B. Traveller's Tale's OTHER LEGO games, you will probably enjoy this one. This is one of the few I would consider as the better LEGO games Traveller's Tales has made. Overall, nice addition to the LEGO game series as a whole.

Outside the fact that i HATE jumping puzzles (their isn't many here, but if you want 100% and you suck at jumping, expect a few extra hours) I loved this game.

I've played it before and it is pretty much how i remember it.

Def a game worth adding to your TT Lego collection

Pros:
Divertido
Entretenido para todas las edades
Muy buena adaptacion de niveles e historia de las peliculas al juego
Algunos puzzles son muy sencillos y otros algo frustrantes, pero el juegos se las arregla para mantenerte avanzando
Si mueres apareces de nuevo justo donde te quedaste
Musica divertida, aunque no siempre

Cons:
Muy mala camara, desesperante en muchos momentos
Algunas secciones de plataformas se vuelven frustrantes gracias a la posicion camara
Los controles desesperan en algunos momentos, sobre todo al brincar entre plataformas o al disparar.....de nuevo gracias a la horrible camara
El manejo de los vehiculos se siente muy raro, dan ganas de mover la palanca a lo loco y ver si llegas de pura suerte

Yo no tuve ningun bug que me arruinara el juego, lo juegue de principio a fin sin problemas.
Solo habia jugado los juegos de Lego Harry Potter y no por completo en Xbox, pero aun asi me parecio muy divertido incluso sintiendo que es solo para niños tan solo con el nombre o al verlo, la verdad es que entretienen mucho.

Last episode from "The Last Crusade" - cannot rotate the two bridge parts together. Bug. Ruined the whole experience. Lame devs, ridiculous publisher.

Well, I read in the reviews that it's so buggy and the controls are so awful that it's unplayable. That's just wrong. I played it with a controller and it worked just fine after I set up the controls in the menu. Sure there are some bugs here and there, same as any other old game. The only "real problem" is the jumping bug, but as it's plainly explained in other posts just turn v-sync on. Which I do anyway because I don't like screen tearing. So, buy it, set up the controller properly and enloy it. I did :)

If you experience jumping problems where your ability to jump is broken, turn vsync on.

Classic Lego game with local Co op and plenty of levels and collectibles to keep you busy. Missions span all three original movies and some difficult puzzles at times. As with all Lego games, it is impossible to die, you always respawn instantly. So I would not recommend if you're seeking a difficult challenge in that aspect. If you seek all unlocks and collectibles, that will be a challenge and require multiple run throughs.

Recommend for an Indy fan or Lego games fan.

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)

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 anatomically correct carved wooden blocks representing humans in Deus Ex.

If you like LEGO and Indiana Jones then you'll probably still think this game is okay at best. Sure, it's fun for the most part, but a few hours in and you'll be having moments of deja vu thinking you've played a level like this beforehand.

There's an unfortunate element of repetition with this game and although the original soundtrack and characters help alleviate this you'll either be desperate to just complete it or just happy to put it to one side for another time.

As with all LEGO games there are the many characters to unlock and freeplay modes for those who want 100% completion, so for some there's a lot of playtime to be had.

All that said though, it's hard not to click the recommend button. Being a thirty-something this game has my favourite toy and one of my favourite movie heroes in, so that's definitely worth a thumbs up on the whole.

+ It's Indiana Jones
+ Original soundtrack
+ Lots of unlockables for 100% seekers
+ No mention of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

- Repetitive
- Awkward controls when precision movement is required
- Missions are easy and can be somewhat dull

Why the hell does this have mixed reviews? This game is awesome! I'd recommend it if you liked the LEGO Star Wars games or fun lighthearted platformers in general.

For some reason out of all the LEGO games I've played, this one seems to have the best secrets; dare I say they are better implemented then LEGO Star Wars. The artifacts and paracels are very cleverly hidden, and there are a ton of awesome hidden rooms for you to find. And heck, the Star Wars characters you need to rescue are indeed a neat touch.

Buy this game if you like lighthearted platformers and finding secrets.
