First let me say that I'm 28, but I'm still a huge fan of Legos. although I've never played a "Lego" video game, so this was a first. I rented Lego Indiana Jones because I thought it might be a cute fun game I could play for a few days, then return... I started playing through the "Raiders Of The Lost Ark" missions, then my brother decided he'd like to try it, and he enjoyed it too... and then so did my wife! Alright, now you know it's fun, but what makes it fun? Is it the simple controls? Maybe the sharp, yet simple graphics? Could be ability to break apart some of the objects in the scenery and use some of them to build other objects in order to complete the mission? Whatever it is, it works! The game is very fun, and the animated cut scenes are quite funny too as they tell the Indiana Jones stories, but with a Lego twist.. so don't expect an exact re-telling. I also enjoyed the fact that it's not just a "beat-em up" game. There are puzzles that you have to figure out in order to move to the next level. The only down side, is that some of the puzzles can be a little difficult. I think that this game is suitable for any age, but I would recommend it for teens to adults. Because the game is fairly simple, it needs something extra to make it a buy instead of a rent. This game is packed full of 60 different unlockable characters, bonus content, and artifacts. You cannot collect all the pieces for these artifacts as you go through the missions, you MUST play the "free play" to collect everything, and it's even more fun with a friend. All in all, the game is simple, very wholesome, and just a lot of fun to play by yourself, or together with someone. I ended up purchasing this game because I wanted to complete the game, and get all the extras. In fact there's even the ability to use pieces of Lego guys (and gals) that you've collected, and make your own character to play with in the free play! Guaranteed, this game will keep you busy for hours, if not days..or longer!!
this game was awsome. the cut sceens where just as funny as lego sw. the omly thing that keept it from being a 10 is the lack of being able to play the 4th indy movie. other then that a great game for lego and indy fans alike.
