spruced up graphics, better co-op modes, more fun than the star-wars lego games. keeps the tongue-in-cheek humour of lego:star wars, controls a little better than lego:star wars it seems a little shorter though, which actually is not a bad thing because a times the other lego games seemed to drag on. if you want to have fun playing a "kids" game(especially if you have kids)than this is the game.
As an adult male who is into shooters/sports games mostly I must admit I was pleasently surprised by how much fun "Lege: Indiana Jones" is. I had a great time playing co-op with my wife and niece when she was over as well.
The Good: -The game play is very smooth and extremely easy to pick up. -Graphics are pretty amazing for such a simple game. -Co-Op is a lot of fun
The Bad: -The games is almost to easy so you will get through it all in no time flat. -There are some points of the game where the camera angle is unbearably bad causing you to die.
What should be a multi player game is not. Playing single player is fun but frustrating at times because of the lack of control of the charater. Once there are two players, the lack of control and glitches in how the game works makes the game nearly unplayable. For example, On the escape from the castle, I got a little head of the other player around a bend in the road. It took five minutes for the second player to catch up, because they were unable to see their player and kept dieing. Then the game would regen in the same spot. Then once we got past that, we couldn't both ride and jump over the bridge because we only had one motorcycle, the second one stop regening. Another 10 mins of trying to get both players over the bridge. I finally had to drop out of the game and rejoin the action later. There is just no excuse for a game to not be tested and fixed so it can be enjoyed with multi player.
