Haha, so Indiana Jones 2 is considered one of the worst Lego games, and it's like that for two reasons:

1: There's very little secret hunting. Normally a big feature of a Lego game is that there's HUGE amount of hidden secret objects to find, but this one scraps it completely - instead, replacing it with more levels.

2: The game really loves featuring stuff that weren't in the original movies at all. At ALL. Like, just about every chapter ends with a boss fight with a big monster (despite obviously not being in the main movies), and that's just an example.

It's still good, mind you, and still worth getting if you're a Lego game fan, but if you haven't gotten the other Lego games you should really pick a different one.

Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is yet another LEGO game, still by same Travellers Tales, released in 2009. You still can't die, you still mostly play to break bricks and collect studs, there is still no online multiplayer. still same casual game to play with kids.
It also came out for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP. Nintendo DS and PSP versions are most interesting. This time they both are based on what appears to be different Indiana Jones LEGO games. Like, exploring the island, where into each stage that you go there is some LEGO NPC that will ask you to do something. Core gameplay is still same though. Yea, DS is a bit worse.

Actually, it's not true that it's same old. Well, things I already mentioned are same, yes, but they changed stuff up, which some liked and some didn't. And LEGO games as franchise have a big problem of getting stale, at least going from 2004's Star Wars to 2008's Batman, that COD and Assassin's Creed will look more fun. So any change in gameplay is a good change. Or at least this is what I get for playing these games solo as adult. Don't blame me, memories of Lego Star Wars when I was younger made me belive that I will love it all up. Otherwise would had never purchase any knowing that I can't die.

The level design got changed completely. There is no single huge hub. You got instead a bunch of separate hubs for each Indiana Jones film, with Crystall Skull having 3 parts. And each of those hubs are bigger and got more interesting stuff to do than global one in previous LEGO games. The only bad thing about them is occasional lack of direction, when you don't know into which way to go to arrive to the next level. Each hub now has 5 story levels and 10 non-mandatory ones. Levels themselves are now much shorter, taking only single screen. Some of them are boss-like and some are vehicle-focused. Story levels also don't have Free Play options, all the puzzles can now be immeditly solved, which I found really nice, as I always felt in previous LEGO games that I am wasting time in Story Mode so I could then get everything in Free Play.
If forget that they don't have any collectibles aside from studs in story mode levels. So it actually doesn't really does was I hoped for. Well, gee.

It does mean less reasons to come back to level and less collectibles in levels themselves. So, depends on what kind of person you are.

They also introduced mechanic where when you play in local coop, the screen will split apart if you go too far apart. This one stayed in franchise. For good reason.

Vehicle physics got more complex. Well, I mean, not controls, just the way it simulates physics, rolling around and such. And they became less responsible. It feels like it was made with vehicle story levels in mind, since there you have to ram every other vehicle, so all the chaos is pretty fun. Shame that only one level of those had cliffs to ram stuff into far below. However, there are bonus challenges in hub world where you must beat a lap by going through gates within time limit. Now this is where worse controls mean much less enjoyment.

The first three films are also different. Which is good, because the previous Indiana Jones LEGO game came out only year ago before this one. Developers took big liberties and decided to mess with people who not only watched movies, but played previous LEGO Jones too. Lego-mimic of Lego-mimic. Actually they took liberties with 4th film too, but it's still more similar than what they did with the first three here. Though, the parts they took for the first three parts are quite random, not even most important ones.
So yea, owning both LEGO Indiana Jones games will not feel like you purchased same thing.

But the most unique part of this LEGO is level editor! It is nothing like your old FPS level editor, it's simple pick-up-and-put stuff, though it's still good enough for many ideas. You can customize characters look here too, like in previous games, and you can combine levels you made into bigger campaign.
Sad thing is that it doesn't have online way of sharing levels, it's still something local thing. Enjoy with a kid, they love such stuff.
A more sad thing is that it never was implented in future Traveller's Tales's Lego games ever again, as far as I am aware.

While still a casual if-you-have-friend-or-just-kid territory, if you are into this franchise, then this title is completely worth owning just because it's different and because it has the unique level editor.

Similar to the movie, 'LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues' doesn't compare to the original Lego Indy game, BUT it does seem to hold on it's own quite well.

I would not call this game 'short' in any way, but does feel easier than the original, mostly because of lack of collectibles and an increased number of minigame-type stages. Some say this may be better because it allows for more of a free-roam experience, but it led to confusion at times when searching the overworlds for certain stages. Plus it's required that you know what character are needed for each level, if you one that is equipped with the wrong item, you have to go back to the overworld, grab a character that fulfills the required item (eg. shovel, whip, bazooka) and only then can you advance.

Overall I would give this a 7/10. Again, I can't be too critical as this game is meant for kids, but it does seem significantly easier than previous installments in the LEGO game series. Maybe just completing the story you may find it a little lackluster, but with that being said, I did have quite fun completing it too 100% and suggest anyone pick this up if it ever goes on sale. Usually Lego game are at a consistent $20 which, in my opinion, is pretty steep, BUT if you ever find it at 50%-75%, it really is worth it.

When I started playing this Indiana Jones 2 I thought it was just going to be a copy of the first game, with just some levels added for the last movie. Boys, was I wrong! All the levels from the first three movies have been completely re-created and they managed to make The Crystal Skull interesting, despite it being really not as a movie. Also the in-game sections between levels got major improvements, now being half hubs and half open-world: all the bricks (not only red now, but also green and blue) are here, all the races are here, all the characters are here, most of the fun is here. "Free Play" in levels is different from other LEGO games too, and more interesting IMO. I could never stop telling how much I liked this game.
I played all of the Traveler's Tales LEGO entries on Steam bar one and Indiana Jones 2 is one of the best 5 (maybe 3) and for sure it's the best of the "Old" games, the ones published before 2011.

When looking at buying this game it wasn't clear if this was a completely different to the original game or a revamped version with new levels. So just to be clear for anyone else wondering this is an all new game, half the game is based on the Crystal Skull and half is based upon the original films. This has all the good things I have come to expect from LEGO games and is a lot of fun. I have not seen the Crystal Skull so I didn't really have much idea what was going on through those parts of the game, I'm not sure what was the madcap zaniness of LEGO and what was actually from the film. The interesting thing to note about this game is it a little different to the other LEGO games. It is divided up into separate chapters which have separate characters to unlock. The levels are shorter and the freeplay mode has been replaced by a treasure mode where you have to solve single puzzle. New characters and vehicles are unlocked by finding stuff in the level hub. All in all this is very different to the original and still great fun so I would recommend getting both.
