All in all, it's amazing the amount of content that's packed into this game -- this is more than a sequel, even while including a redux of the first game's three movies. There's a little bit of something for everyone here, be it the completionist, level-builder, or those who simply like to explore the Indiana Jones world. And most of all, Lego Indiana Jones 2 manages to do something I never thought possible -- it makes Kingdom of the Crystal Skull not terrible. Truly, this is a treasure of a game.

Die clevere Idee der Erweiterung der Oberwelt in Zusammenarbeit mit der Verkürzung der Levels funktioniert wunderbar. Außerdem ist das Spiel weitaus witziger als der dunkle Rächerklotz - und obwohl der Editor derzeit aufgrund der Offline-Beschränkung eigentlich kaum eine Existenzberechtigung hat, finde ich es sehr gut, in einem Lego-Spiel auch tatsächlich mal etwas selbst bauen zu dürfen. Allerdings sollte man davon abgesehen keine Überraschungen erwarten: Das Spielprinzip ist seit Lego Star Wars unverändert und wirkt damit auch mittlerweile unverändert staubig. Außerdem finde ich es (in negativer Hinsicht) bemerkenswert, wie störrisch die Entwickler an der nervenden Vehikel-Steuerung festhalten, die seit dem ersten Teil unverändert schlecht ist. Doch davon abgesehen bekommen Fans mehr Futter vom bislang besten Lego-Teil: Der Humor stimmt, die Spielbarkeit stimmt, der Umfang stimmt mehr denn je. Lego Indiana Jones 2 ist ein großer Spaß!

Even so, there's little need to make your own stages. The game is already full of them, and they kept me plenty busy throughout. The established Lego game design wasn't broken, but, after so many games, it was beginning to get a bit stale. Those used to the previous titles might feel a bit disoriented at first, but you'll soon settle in and begin having fun exploring the large hubs and condensed levels. Now here's the big question: how long before we can expect a Lego version of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles"?
Worth Playing (Dec 11, 2009)
Overall, LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is a great addition to Traveler's Tales LEGO games and a fun follow-up to first LEGO Indy title. The small gameplay changes might not be significant for those who have grown tired of the formula, but people who still enjoy them will find that the new stuff makes enough of a change to improve the playability, which is never a bad thing. It's definitely worth seeking out, whether you're a fan or a new player of the LEGO titles. It's certainly a game that I plan on enjoying for a little while longer.
If it seems we've spent a long time talking about LEGO Indy 2's flaws, it's because the game is so similar to the first, save for different levels. The quality is still relatively high overall and there's an excellent level editor, even if the dodgy camera and samey design stand out. It remains a fun, affectionate homage to an awesome series of films - gophers and all.
Whatever its flaws, this game does a decent enough job of walking the line between sticking to the formula and mixing things up. The developers will need to refine some of the changes in future installments; in particular, the "where do I go now?" problem is serious, especially for very young children with short attention spans. Regardless, it's refreshing to see them try something new for a change, and given the constant stream of LEGO-themed games, the franchise has aged surprisingly well.
Vandal Online (Nov 27, 2009)
Lego Indiana Jones 2 es una secuela competente, que mantiene el estilo original sin cambiar demasiado la fórmula, lo que asegura que gustará a los que disfrutaron con el primero, pero no sorprenderá a nadie. Las novedades incluídas son acertadas pero les falta "algo", especialmente en el caso de su editor de niveles y su carácter offline, y los ligeros cambios incluídos en el juego lo hacen algo diferente al primero, pero no necesariamente mejor. Aún así, los que esperen un juego como el original no se sentirán decepcionados. Pero la fórmula, definitivamente, necesita renovarse para volver a resultar tan fresca como en el primer Lego Star Wars.

Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues was always going to feel a bit desperate, making the most out of a small amount of new content, but Traveller's Tales has done a decent job. There's nothing repeated here from the previous game, but the versions of the original trilogy are confusing and the Crystal Skull will appeal mainly to younger gamers and not nostalgic old-timers. So while it's not quite up there with the best in the Lego series, The Adventure Continues is still a fun romp, especially if you plan to play with some younger family members.

LEGO Indiana Jones 2: La aventura continúa nos enseña la tetralogía sobre las andanzas del laureado aventurero desde el nuevo punto de vista de una figura de Lego. Una ambientación y un diseño adecuados se combinan a la genial producción sonora de John Williams, proponiendo a los fans de la serie una renovada oportunidad de disfrutar jugablemente de una leyenda del cine como Indiana Jones.

If you’ve been waiting to explore these creative features, LEGO Indiana Jones 2 delivers in a big way. For other LEGO enthusiasts, keep collecting those studs in LEGO Star Wars or find that last unlockable LEGO Batman character. Indy’s newest adventure wasn’t built to last.
IGN (Nov 18, 2009)
LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues does try to do a few new things, but Traveller's Tales messed with the wrong stuff and essentially broke a solid, if aging, formula. The lack of secrets in the main levels is a mistake, the new hub worlds are confusing and the level editor is just short of being pointless. If you haven't already played it, the original LEGO Indiana Jones is a much better purchase.

I usually find Lego games to be moderately enjoyable, but playing Lego Indiana Jones 2 is an absolute chore.
