Join Indiana Jones in three movies worth of LEGO-ized action, adventure and fun! We review this new game for Wii.

With the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie rockin' the theaters, the whip-crackin' adventurer is also appearing in the LEGO Indiana Jones the Original Adventures video game for DS, PC, PSP, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. It takes the awesome fun of the award-winning LEGO Star Wars games and puts a new twist on 'em. Is it any fun? Find out with Gary's LEGO Indiana Jones game review!

Building Blocks and Adventure

If you've played the LEGO Star Wars games, skip to the next paragraph. Otherwise - you play as LEGO versions of Indiana Jones and his friends, running, jumping, enemy-bashing and puzzle-solving your way through dozens of levels full of LEGO bricks. The adventures are all based on the original three Indiana Jones movies, with extra bits thrown in, LEGO brick-themed puzzles, boss battles and tons of LEGO studs to collect and spend to unlock bonuses.

Thrills, Spills and Treasure

The LEGO magic is back! This game is packed with fun levels, great action and tons of puzzles to solve with Indy and his friends. It's super easy to play and you can't really die, so anybody can have fun without worrying about restarting levels or losing. You can also play as 60 different characters, even the villains, and each one lets you unlock more extras on each level. Plus, the multiplayer mode lets friends join in and drop out any time they want. The final fun feature of this game is that the combination of LEGO and Indiana Jones means it's the perfect game to play with your dad on Father's Day!

What, No Lightsabers?!?

Indiana Jones is cool, but doesn't have the awesomeness of the lightsaber-wielding, force-using, robot-filled Star Wars games. That's the biggest bummer about the whole game, although it's based on a bunch of really old movies and doesn't have any Kingdom of the Crystal Skull levels, which is a bit annoying.

Indy - Hero or Old Man?

LEGO Indiana Jones the Original Adventures is an awesome game. It may not be as cool as LEGO Star Wars, but it's still fantastic and a great way to sit down and game with your Dad on Father's Day. Plus, there's enough to discover and unlock in this game that you'll be able to play it until LEGO Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull comes out!

Thumbs Up:
  • 60 characters to play!
  • Different powers and abilities for each character.
  • Find hidden LEGO Star Wars stuff.
  • Tons of crazy bonus modes you can unlock!
  • Awesome multiplayer options.
  • Great game to play with your Dad!
Thumbs Down:
  • Not as awesome as LEGO Star Wars.
  • No Kingdom of the Crystal Skull levels?!?

Game Rating: 5
