The LEGO series has always been about one thing: good wholesome fun. The games present a great way to introduce a younger audience to the films we love. Oh, and it's a great way to relive your own youth! If you mix LEGOs with any of my favorite films, chances are, I'll like it. Enter Indiana Jones...
The concept is the same as previous efforts and includes tasks that center around collecting small LEGO bolts used to purchase extra characters, gear, and cheats. While exploring the setting of each classic Jones film, you'll find treasure, defeat the bad guys, reclaim the grail, and as always, save the girl. LEGO Indiana Jones is a fun game by itself, but if you want the most enjoyment out of the game, by all means play cooperatively.
Indy journeys through each of the classic films (Raiders, Temple, and Crusade), dedicating six levels to each. The cut scenes are humorous and enjoyable as always, making it even more fun for those familiar with the films.
The game is a bit frustrating at times simply due to camera angles and death induced by poor respawn points. As mentioned, these problems are generally easier to deal with when playing with a friend or child.
My main qualm with any of the LEGO games are the lack of replay value. Once you journey through the levels once, you probably won't feel the need to go back and find the missing treasure. While I wouldn't recommend this game to everyone, it is worth a rent for Indy film buffs or anyone looking for a quick platforming adventure.

This game is pretty fun but the missions are too hard. The graphics are stunning but the missions are just too hard. I mean I like hard missions but not this hard. This game doesn't follow the storyline in my opinion. This game is okay, but it's not great
This was a very fun game to play especially with younger members of the family. It was great until the game froze, which I came to find out is common with this game. I tried another copy of the game but it had the same problem too. This is unacceptable for a game that costs $60 (I'm glad I didn't buy it!), and reflects badly on the company that made it.
