Tolles Spiel für alle Alterklassen (es fließt kein Tropfen Blut) mit stimmiger Grafik und super Musik! Ein gut integrierter Zweispielermodus und viele Stunden Spielzeit sprechen klar für das neue Spiel aus dem Hause Feral, für das man sich aber besser ein Gamepad zulegt.

Lego Indiana Jones on erittäin positiivinen yllätys. Tähtien sodat tekivät hyvän pohjatuloksen, mutta Indy onnistuu korottamaan rimaa selvästi ja heittää tiukan haasteen syksyllä julkaistavalle Lego Batmanille. Peli jättää jälkeensä iloisen mielen ja melkoisen halun palata takaisin piilotettuja salaisuuksia etsimään. Parempaa suositusta on pelille vaikea antaa.

I en jämförelse med Lego Star Wars är Indiana Jones snäppet vassare på alla sätt. Utmaningarna är lite klurigare och möjligheter att utnyttja och interagera med omgivningen är större. Lite mera djup är önskemålet inför nästa Lego-äventyr, men överlag känns legofieringen av Indy helt rätt och förrädiskt charmigt.

LEGO Indiana Jones isn't without its flaws-the lack of online co-op is almost criminal-but it so beautifully mixes the spirit of a beloved adventure series with the playful heart of cherished childhood toys that it feels like much more than the sum of its angular parts. The tone might be almost overwhelmingly saccharine sweet, with even the caricature Nazis of the films stripped of their insignia and leering malice, but all gamers, young or old, are virtually guaranteed a great time.

Despite this omission, Lego Indy is an absolute brick-breaking blast. Granted, some of the novelty has worn off since the first time we busted-up a plastic Jar Jar Binks, but that’s to be expected (this is technically the fourth such game using this formula.) The gameplay is addictive as ever and the Indy makeover oozes with style. From the excellent visuals and famous cinematic score (you’ll be surprised just how cool you feel playing as a Lego when that rousing theme rises through your speakers), to the franchise’s trademark comedic cutscenes—some actually top the side-splitters from LSW, —it’s hard not to recommend this one. If you loved playing as tiny, blocky Jedi, you’ll likely have a similarly fun experience under Indy’s plastic fedora. And, if your adoration for the Indy flicks tops your love of Lucas’s other lucrative license, then you’re about to uncover an even greater gaming treasure.

PlayStation 3Extreme Gamer
The only real complaint about this game is that the friendly AI if not being controlled by a friend can be frustrating at times and do some pretty interesting things. Also when you’re surrounded by several bad guys with guns death is almost inevitable, so make sure to collect those hearts non stop. Other than that this is an excellent addition to any library and a great tie over until Lego Batman is released in early September. Lego Indiana Jones is a lot of fun, lengthy and family friendly, so the $ 80 price tag is most certainly worth it. If you haven't tried Lego Star Wars or wasn't a big fan of the game, it's still worth it to give Lego Indie a rent and see where it goes.

Trotz der Lego-Lizenz eignet sich das Spiel keineswegs nur für Kinder, sondern auch erwachsene Spieler dürften ihren Spaß haben. Das liegt vor allem an dem hohen Wiedererkennungswert der Schauplätze, den humoristischen Einlagen und nicht zuletzt auch an den abwechslungsreichen Rätseln, die sich zwar häufig in ihren Elementen ähneln, durch kleine Variationen aber Abwechslung garantieren. Wer Indy mag und auf Plattformspiele oder Action-Adventures steht, kann hier blind zugreifen.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why online co-op was not included in this game. In today's video game world, that is almost a must and its in the Star Wars game as well as the upcoming Batman. The ball was dropped here for sure. I'd also love to see online adversarial play in the LEGO world. Can you just see Team Deathmatch in LEGO style??? That would be too awesome!

Es ist auch schade (und unverständlich), dass der Online-Modus des unmittelbaren Vorgängers über Bord gekippt wurde - außerdem solltet ihr nicht mit Überraschungen rechnen; Indy setzt genau da an, wo Star Wars aufgehört hat. Nichtsdestotrotz gibt es eine enthusiastische Empfehlung für alle großen und kleinen Abenteurer: Weil Traveller's Tales mal wieder das Kunststück vollbracht hat, nicht nur die Essenz der Filme perfekt einzufangen, sondern das Ausgangsmaterial auch noch toll spielbar in das herrlich alberne Lego-Universum zu integrieren, ohne es lächerlich zu machen. Das ist etwas, was nur den wenigsten Entwicklern von Film-Umsetzungen gelingt.

I was worried that this game would dumb down the Indy films for the kids to enjoy but I needn’t have bothered as it doesn’t leave anything out and spares no punches in mocking what made the series great in the first place. To be fair you need to have seen the films to enjoy a lot of what takes place, but unless you’ve been living under a rock, that won’t be much of a pre-requisite. Grab a friend and sit back and enjoy the show – fortune and glory kid.

Traveller’s Tale has once again made another great Lego experience. These sort of games might seem like they are for children, but in reality these are the sort of games that hardcore gamers will enjoy. You can pretty much complete this game in no more than five hours so the $49.99 asking cost might seem too steep to some.

Without a doubt, LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a worthy addition to the witty and entertaining LEGO gaming franchise. Once you are comfortable using the occasionally awkward PC keyboard controls or preferably hooking up a game controller, you will quickly become immersed in the game's addictive gameplay. With plenty of goodies to collect and surprises to uncover, you will easily find a respectable amount of replay value as you attempt to obtain the best possible score for each episode. Anyone looking for a great family-oriented entertainment title for the PC would be hard-pressed to find a better offering than LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures.

Like the LEGO Star Wars games before it, LEGO Indiana Jones – The Original Adventures is very much a tongue-in-cheek take on the first three Indiana Jones movies. Those who have seen those movies will definitely appreciate how each film has been recreated in the game and those who haven’t seen the films will appreciate the game for the enjoyable and humorous entertainment that it offers. It’s one of the finest family-orientated games on the Xbox 360 and can definitely be considered one of the gaming highlights of 2008.

Lego Indiana Jones kann nahtlos an den Erfolg der Vorgängerteile anschließen. Nicht nur der geniale Humor des Spieles sorgt für eine spannende Atmosphäre, sondern auch die deutlich anspruchsvolleren Rätseln. Abgerundet wird das Action-Adventure durch die liebevoll gestaltete Grafik und der tollen Hintergrundakustik. Wem das alles noch nicht reicht, der sollte unbedingt den Coop-Modus mit einem Freund oder einer Freundin anspielen. Trotz der vielen positiven Aspekte sollten die Entwickler langsam aus ihren Fehlern gelernt haben, denn die nervige Kameraführung und strohdumme K.I. haben wir schon damals beim Lego Star Wars-Review kritisiert.

Jawoll, so sieht ordentliche Unterhaltung für die ganze Familie aus. Auch wenn vielleicht die ganz Kleinen nur staunend vorm Fernseher stehen. Vater und Großvater werden mit Freude das neue LEGO-Abenteuer bestreiten und damit eine kleine Zeitreise antreten. Denn mal ehrlich, wer hat sich damals nicht gewünscht, dass die kleinen Knilche endlich lebendig werden? Genauso fühlt man sich nämlich beim Spielen. Die Aufgaben im Spiel sind durch die Bank weg auf einem moderaten Niveau. Wer also nicht gerade den IQ einer Zimmerpflanze sein eigen nennt, sollte ohne Probleme über die Runden kommen. Der Charme der ersten LEGO-Abenteuer kann zwar leider nicht mehr ganz erreicht werden, wer diese allerdings noch nicht gespielt hat, der darf ohne lange nachdenken zugreifen und wird jede Menge Spaß haben.

Lego Indiana Jones is a wonderful game for fans of the movies. Even if you're not a big fan of the movies though you will still get plenty of enjoyment from this action/adventure game. The omission of the latest movie is a little disappointing, but we're sure that may be covered in a game somewhere down the line (there were certainly enough action sequences to fill a game!). Lego Indiana Jones is highly recommended.

למרות הבעיות, לגו אינדיאנה ג'ונס הוא חוויה מהנה ומשעשעת. קטעי המעבר מספקים אין ספור בדיחות ומחוות לסרטים המקוריים, ואפילו ל-'מלחמת הכוכבים', כמיטב המסורת של כל משחק שאי פעם יצא מלוקאס ארטס.

המשחק מתאים לילדים ומבוגרים כאחד, במיוחד כאלה שזוכרים את אינדיאנה ג'ונס עם נוסטלגיה בלבם. אם אתם רוצים להעצים את החוויה, אני ממליץ לראות קודם את הסרטים, ולשחק בזוגות. אפשר אפילו עם הילדים, ולמרות שמדובר במשחק שקהל היעד העיקרי שלו הוא ילדים – יש סיכוי טוב מאד שתהנו ממנו אפילו יותר מהם.

Indiana Jones the original adventures is a fun and enjoyable game for all audiences, and that is what is important about the LEGO series brought by Tt games, most people who play this game will like it. We have too many games on the market, even more so for the Xbox 360 and PS3, aimed at a particular audience, and that is where I feel the next generation is failing. These LEGO series games have been well noted by designers and that is why I think we're are seeing the announcement of other platformers such as Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon. LEGO Indiana Jones is in no way a perfect title though, there have been noticeable bugs and inconveniences, such as the fixed camera angle & awkward respawns, and it is in no way anything original or groundbreaking in gameplay, but, it is amusing, entertaining and accessible. It started well with Star Wars LEGO, and it hasn't fallen short yet with Indiana Jones. Now, where's my hat?

Lego Indy doesn’t vary much in scope and content from the previous titles that the pair have worked on, but it’s still a fun game to play and a smart take on the game-from-a-movie process, which more times than not turns out to be lacking in the “game” portion. Most of all, it makes me wonder what they’ll team up on next.

Er sieht ungefähr aus wie Indiana Jones, und alles um ihn herum klingt nach Indiana Jones. Mit den Rechten für die Filmmusik haben sich die Entwickler auch schon einen großen Teil des Erfolgs gesichert, denn vom ersten Moment an hat man Indy-Atmospähre im Legoland. Dazu kommt der Spielinhalt: Genau wie in den Filmen geht es um Action und cleveres Verhalten beim Rätselknacken, die Umsetzung ist absolut großartig gelungen. Da verschmerzt man dann auch, dass der eine oder andere Sprung ins Leere geht, weil die Sicht nicht optimal ist. Denn: Hier ist einfach jede Menge vom feinsten Indiana Jones drin, den man sich wünschen kann. Die Lego-Umsetzung bürgt außerdem dafür, dass auch Kinder sich schon in archäologische Abenteuer stürzen können, die Optik und die Umsetzung sind ohne Frage kindertauglich. Und das finden wir rundum "gut".

Eins lässt sich gleich bestätigen: Wem LEGO Star Wars nicht zugesagt hat, der wird auch keinen Spaß an der Indiana Jones Variante haben. Gameplay und Optik sind praktisch identisch. Die Mischung aus Plattformgehüpfe, Rätsel lösen und Bösewichte verhauen mit gelegentlichen Fahrzeugeinlagen sind noch immer die Essenz. Hinzu kommt der schräge, selbstironische Humor, der die ganze LEGO-Situation und natürlich die Filme auf die Schippe nimmt. Im Übrigen werden die Filme nicht sklavisch 1:1 nachgespielt. Zwar befindet ihr euch immer an bekannten Schauplätzen, aber diese sind frei interpretiert und meist weitläufiger als im Zelluloidoriginal.

Das neuste LEGO-Spiel macht trotz kleiner Wiederholungen im Gameplay wieder eine Menge Spaß und eignet sich nicht zuletzt für unterhaltsame Koop-Abenteuer (wenn auch leider nur offline). Der ausgebaute Rätselanteil könnte verstärkt auch erfahrenere Spieler ansprechen, macht das Ganze aber vielleicht einen Tick weniger leicht zugänglich als die noch stärker actionbetonten Star Wars-Geschwister. Großen Herausforderungen muss man sich jedoch trotzdem nicht stellen und so bleibt Indys Auftritt ein feiner Zeitvertreib für die ganze Familie, den man schon allein der putzigen Optik wegen einfach lieb haben muss.

Come for the Indiana Jones, not for the surprises. If you enjoyed the LEGO Star Wars games and want to see what that concept looks like when applied to everyone's favorite fedora-topped grave robber, you couldn't ask for anything more. This is a no-fooling-around sequel that doesn't mess with the formula in any way. And that was more than enough for me. That said, I'm not so sure what my reaction will be to a third go-round when LEGO Batman arrives this fall. There doesn't seem to be much room for evolution in this franchise when it comes to gameplay, in that it depends so heavily on charisma and gently poking fun at famous films and characters. Such a formula can only take you so far, as there are only so many iconic, family-friendly sci-fi and adventure flicks that would lend themselves to this sort of treatment. Whatever the future holds, though, this has been a great LEGO-inspired ride so far, and one worthy of continuing here if you have any affection for the intrepid Dr. Jones.

There's a lot of talk in the serious game reviewing blogosphere these days about how we should be looking for the Citizen Kane of gaming. Well I have to tell you, LEGO Indiana isn't it, but that really does not matter one little bit. This is a game that's about having fun in a Lego universe, and the many 'oh, I recognise that bit from the movie' moments that you never thought could be rendered in Lego. Revolutionary? No. But, just like the movies, it's a great diversion for a few hours... and the kids love it. Finally, I think my grade for LEGO® Indiana Jones© The Original Adventure reflects this solid, enjoyable performance, without overstating the strength of this title.

Normally, Lego Indiana Jones would get an A-rating from me. However, being the third in the Lego franchise based on Lucasfilm movies, there is not enough innovation here to warrant more than a B+. The addictive gameplay, well-rendered graphics (even on an aged system), easy control scheme, innovative cooperative features and tons of replay value make for a winner. I am a pretty critical guy when it comes to games, but playing this is just too much fun.

Lego Indiana Jones’s success comes from keeping the fun gameplay of the Lego Star Wars games, but injecting the classic Indy moments, music, and characters. This is the perfect way to introduce kids to the movies if you don’t feel the melting faces and the Temple of Doom are appropriate for them. For the somewhat budget price tags of the console versions, Lego Indy’s got a lot of gameplay and unlockables to make sure you get your money’s worth, especially if you have a friend with whom to play.

In the end, Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a game that combines two of the most iconic elements of most our youths together, and this works oddly well. Having access to the original scores while reinterpreting film sequences in comedic Lego fashion immediately makes the title utterly endearing, while the level of visual polish and OCD inspired collectionism should have you and a friend exploring and uncovering, cooperatively for quite a while. Traveller’s Tales have easily raised the Lego videogame bar substantially here, hopefully the forthcoming Lego Batman can maintain this new high standard.

When all's said and done, it only seems fair to note that LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is the best choice for parents who want to play a fun game together with their kids. What's more, collecting freaks should feel right at home. The sheer number of characters and unlockables will surely keep you busy and if you're ambitious and persistent enough to complete the Story mode and the Free Play mode (as well as getting all the Achievements), you'll find LEGO generally rewarding.

Auch mit Indiana Jones als Leitfigur kommt im Lego-Spiel eine Menge Spaß auf. Kein Wunder, immerhin mussten die Entwickler nur ihre großartigen Ideen aus den Vorgängern übernehmen und Indy-kompatibel machen. Dennoch gibt's sinnvolle Neuerungen, etwa die zusätzlichen Rätselvarianten und die Ängste der Figuren. Dennoch: Nach drei Spielen sollte man meinen, dass Traveller's Tales die störrische Kamera und KI-Macken endlich mal in den Griff bekommt. Egal, ich spiele ohnehin mit einem Kumpel.

Lego Indiana Jones is very accessible and very well produced. Although for some endlessly smashing Lego scenery and finding keys to fit winches again and again and again in a desperate attempt to reach the next mildly humorous Mr. Bean-injected version of a scene from the classic films may get slightly tedious after hours and hours of it, and this is just about all Lego Indiana Jones' gameplay really amounts to. But it's not all about challenging gameplay, especially for kids. The colourful scenery, cheeky comedy, pristine production and cute Lego crafted world is just the thing to vacuum up a child's attention for hours and hours and hours on end; and that's exactly what this game will do. It'll do it better than any other game on the market, and hopefully it'll do it for long enough so that "Daddy" can finish his Ninja Gaiden II scythe-only play through undisturbed.

Overall it’s a great game and certainly offers a lot of whacky Lego Indiana Jones movie inspired fun. The puzzles will test your brainpower some and your ingenuity in certain levels, so it’s a good game for kids as well as adults that are fond of things like the Incredible Machine, where you have to slot parts together to make Rube Goldberg style device. It has a lot of replay value in collecting the various side items and characters.

Alles in allem besitzt der neue Teil jedoch zu wenig individuelle Klasse - es fehlt einfach an frischen Spielelementen. Da der Originalitätsbonus der Star Wars Legospiele zudem aufgebraucht ist, fällt unsere Wertung zwangsläufig niedriger aus, als beim spielerisch sicher ebenbürtigen Original. Dennoch ist Lego Indy ein sehr spaßiges Abenteuerspiel mit guten Rätseln und gelungenem Leveldesign, um das kein Indiana Jones-Fan herumkommen wird. Für das kommende Lego Batman sollten die Entwickler das Gameplay aber ein wenig erweitern, auf die Dauer wird es sonst langweilig, egal welcher Filmheld in Klötzchenform durch die Levels huscht.

Even with the bugs that need to be sorted out and some very difficult puzzles needing to be resolved, LEGO Indiana Jones is one of the most fun titles I’ve played in a long time. There’s a solid platform/adventure game to be had here, complete with its own sense of warmth and humor that keeps the player coming back for more and this can’t be denied.

Don’t let the franchise name deter you—Lego Indiana Jones is a solid platformer, a humorous ride, and a satirical look at one of films’ great franchises at the same time. The pathfinding, respawn, and aiming issues can be irritating, but they shouldn’t deter you from a warm, colorful romp. It’s probably the most wholesome entertainment you’ll have since fingerpainting.

"LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures" continua com o bom humor e a ação leve e viciante da mistura criada em "LEGO Star Wars". Não tenta arriscar ou inovar em nenhum aspecto, mas a fórmula e os personagens são cativantes o suficiente para prender a atenção por muito tempo. O conteúdo deixa a desejar, mas como há tantos itens a serem colecionados, é um jogo que deve ter uma vida útil bastante significante e que agrada a jogadores de todas as idades.

Besides being a fun adventure for Indy fans, this is a great game for adults and kids to play together, since you’re working as a team, and the auto-aim and unlimited lives make the difficulty pretty forgiving.

But once you get the hang of the controls, the game itself is a delightful, fun romp through some of the greatest adventure films ever made. Well, the ones that don’t feature Sean Connery, at least.

Ultimately, if you enjoyed the Lego Star Wars titles, you're going to enjoy this game as well, even if you don't have the same fanboy nostalgia here compelling you to play. At full price, it's a good buy, because the replay value makes it worth the money and leaves you with hours and hours of stuff to do. If you are new to the series, it's probably best rented or purchased used, although renting the game will not give you enough time to uncover everything.

To round off, as a game in itself, Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a fantastic game, even for people who haven't seen the movies. There's enough there to warrant you spending your hard-earned money on it, and there's plenty of things that add to the replay value. It's only when compared to Traveller's Tales' previous Lego titles when it begins to look sparse, but if you look past that, you can't go wrong.

Lego Indiana Jones periaatteessa rakentaa hyväksi havaitulle pohjalle entistä oivempaa elämystä, osa paloista nyt vain on hukkunut jonnekin. Legot heräävät jälleen kerran henkiin riemastuttavien yksityiskohtien ja terävän ja "uskottavan" grafiikan myötä – henkiin heränneisiin palikoihin ei vain ole istunut Indiana Jonesin sielu, ei vaikka John Williams kuinka huitoisi sinfoniaorkesterin edessä. Sellaiset yksityiskohdat kuin Indyn kyvyttömyys selvitä käärmeistä tai kaveria tietyissä olosuhteissa lyömällä ansaittu achievement nimeltä "that's for blasphemy" pistävät pakostakin hymyilemään, mutta juuri muuta lisenssistä ei irti saada. Kun leijonanosa kentistäkin perustuu vain tekijöiden mielikuvitukseen, voisi pelin nimi olla yhtä hyvin Lego Allan Quatermain: The Chamberlain Saga.

Lego Indiana Jones is precies wat je er van kunt verwachten: een leuke, humorvolle game, waarin het verhaal van de eerste drie Indy-films met een korreltje zout wordt vertaald naar de wereld van Lego. Het concept werkte al voor Star Wars, en Lego Indy is zelfs nog leuker. De puzzels zijn wat dieper, het spel ziet er mooi uit en is meer dan Lego Star Wars toegespitst op gameplay voor twee spelers. Daarom is het extra jammer dat er geen online multiplay mogelijk is en veel gamers het spel in hun eentje moeten spelen. Alleen spelen gaat prima, maar het levert minder lol op dan spelen met een vriend of vriendin.

Auch wenn in beiden Filmtrilogien Harrison Ford eine tragende Rolle spielt, ist Indiana Jones natürlich nicht Star Wars. Doch im Legouniversum sind sich die beiden beliebten Filmreihen deutlich ähnlicher als man glaubt. Spielerisch läuft Lego Indiana Jones genau so ab, wie man es bereits von Lego Star Wars kennt. Okay, ihr steuert keinen Jedi mit Lichtschwert sondern Indy mit Peitsche und statt Raumhäfen springt ihr durch Tempel oder Wüstentädte. Alles in allem besitzt der neue Teil jedoch zu wenig individuelle Klasse - es fehlt einfach an frischen Spielelementen. Da der Originalitätsbonus der Star Wars Legospiele zudem aufgebraucht ist, fällt unsere Wertung zwangsläufig niedriger aus, als beim spielerisch sicher ebenbürtigen Original.

This is the sort of quality, all-ages, inoffensive platformer that everyone can pick up and enjoy. It’s highly recommended for gamers with children, casual players, and Indiana Jones fans, and certainly worth a look for any gamer who enjoys a solid romp. It may be on the easy side, but it has oodles of charm and more than enough fun gameplay to last a weekend.

Für mich gehören die Indiana Jones-Filme zum Kulturgut meiner Generation, den vierten Teil einmal ausgenommen. Deswegen bin ich ehrlich beeindruckt, mit welcher Liebe sich die Entwickler von Traveller's Tales des Themas angenommen haben. Wer die Filme kennt, wird sich köstlich amüsieren. Denn alle bekannten Schauplätze und Szenen sind in Legoform im Spiel zu finden und toll umgesetzt. Abseits des vielgepriesenen Humors bleibt nur ein gutes Hüpf-und-Puzzle-Spiel mit einigen nervigen Passagen. Denn meist wiederholen sich die zu erledigenden Aufgaben recht schnell, Routine stellt sich ein. Teils sind die Rätsel aber derart knackig, dass ein Weiterkommen eine Frage von Stunden werden kann. Trotzdem: Wer Lego Star Wars mochte, kann hier bedenkenlos zugreifen. Einmal Affenhirn auf Eis, bitte!

Traurig, dass man mittlerweile erwähnen muss, dass man dieses Spiel gerne in die Hände von Kindern legen darf. Sie werden toll unterhalten und auch erwachsene Gamer können dem Titel etwas abgewinnen, vorausgesetzt, sie lassen sich auf die Welt der kleinen Männchen ein. Zusammen mit Birgit hatte ich eine Menge Spass in den Levels; der jederzeit aktivierbare Koopmodus ist nach wie vor Vorbild für andere Spiele dieser Art. LEGO steht übrigens für "Leg Godt". Das ist dänisch und heisst "Spiel gut". Na, das können wir allemal unterschreiben.

Als Indiana Jones-Fan hat mir das Spiel wirklich gut gefallen: Ich habe zwar in meiner Kindheit nie mit LEGO gespielt, doch der Knuddelcharme des Spiels hat mich rasch eingefangen. Gut finde ich, dass die Levels nicht komplett aus den Steinen gebaut wurden, so kommt viel mehr Atmosphäre auf und ausserdem sieht es auch erheblich besser aus. Eltern, die mit ihren Kindern auf dem PC gemeinsam spielen möchten, sei dieser Titel wärmstens empfohlen. Der angenehme Humor, verpackt in die LEGO-Welt, das ist etwas, was mir wirklich gut gefällt.

Lego Indiana Jones biedt het verwachte vervolg op de Lego Star Wars-games. De vlotte, humoristische tussenfilmpjes en de uitdagende puzzels maken dit tot het meest vermakelijke Lego-spel tot nu toe - daar zal Indy wel ook voor iets tussenzitten. Het is niet het moeilijkste spel, maar heeft genoeg verborgen goodies om je meer dan een keer te laten spelen. Zowel nieuwkomers als diehard fans van de vorige games van Traveller's Tales zullen genoeg te genieten hebben.

But while the game does little to evolve the Lego franchise, The Original Adventures boasts a razor-sharp sense of humour that’ll delight movie fans, with sequences such as Indy riffling through his bag to find the golden idol from Raiders Of The Lost Ark – but pulling out C-3PO’s shiny head instead – making this worth the price of admission alone.

Traveller's Tales has once again delivered an experience that boils down to smashing stuff over and over again while searching for secrets, while also managing to make that formula fun and addictive. It's certainly not a huge leap over the LEGO Star Wars titles, and in fact still has some of that series' issues, but it's no less enthralling and certainly a fun adventure worth taking on.

If LEGO Indy has any major drawback, it's that it's so dependent on its humorous presentation for its appeal. You can tell the developers know this, as the game's relaxed difficulty makes it more of an inevitable march to the finish line, ensuring you see every last cut-scene. Some might feel compelled to dig through Free Play mode and track down every last bonus item, but it's easy to see one run through Story mode being enough for many. Still, even if you make only one trip through LEGO Indiana Jones, it'll be a great ride.

All in all Lego Indiana Jones is a good game. The developer has cut the bits out that needed cutting and brought in some nice improvements. However the basics of the game seem to have gone backwards. The tearing issue and the fact characters and objects often go through each other and through walls is poor development. It’s even sadder when you think back to how good the finished article was with Lego Star Wars. But, that said. The story and general game play is very good. The game on a whole is good but is no better than Star Wars or any worse for that matter. It’s just a shame it’s let down by some poor finishing in places. If you’re a fan of Lego Star Wars, then you’ll be a fan of Lego Indiana Jones. I have no doubt about that.

Still, just because it's not perfect doesn't mean that it's not very very good indeed. LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is a fun game that will divert you for quite a few hours. If you've got kids of a gaming age then they'll enjoy playing this and, thanks to the excellent two-player mode, you'll still get to join in. If you enjoyed the LEGO Star Wars games then you'll like this a lot. It's not quite the same as the films, but it's close enough to make you feel like you really are adventuring alongside Indy. Just like a real archaeologist. Now, where did I put that Fedora hat?

Ilahduttavasti Traveller's Tales on ymmärtänyt, mikä tekee Indiana Jonesista kaikkien aikojen arkeologin eikä ole vain kopioinut ideoita Lego Star Warseista.

Als ich vor drei Jahren das erste ’Lego Star Wars’ spielte, war mir sofort klar: Damit hat Traveller’s Tales seinen eigenen Sechser im Lotto programmiert. Zwei direkte Nachfolger, nun die ’Indiana Jones’-Version und das in der Entwicklung stehende ’Lego Batman’ zeigen, dass wir von den Engländern so bald nichts anderes sehen werden. Der Lego-Charme punktet erneut, allerdings blättert der Lack ganz leicht ab trotz neuen Settings: Was bei ’Star Wars’ noch für ein “Geniale Idee“-Gefühl sorgte, verkommt bei ’Lego Indiana Jones’ zu einem “Genau was wir erwartet haben“. Das familienfreundliche Konzept funktioniert natürlich trotzdem und Fans der Filme müssen sich das Spiel allein schon wegen der liebevollen Hommage sowie des Soundtracks besorgen. Es ist jedoch mehr als schade, dass der neue ’Indiana Jones’-Film fehlt. Ich würde mich jedenfalls nicht wundern, wenn in nicht allzu ferner Zeit ein entsprechend “aufgemotzter“ Nachfolger erscheint.

But, hey, don't get upset Indy fans! Like I said, the game is still fun. It's just not Lego Star Wars II fun. And let's be honest, Lego Star Wars II set the bar pretty high. There's still plenty to like about Lego Indiana Jones, from the John Williams score, to the clean, crisp visuals (although I would have liked to have seen more made out of actual Legos), to the plethora of unlockable content. Also, if you've got kids it's a great way to introduce them to the franchise without having to awkwardly explain why Indiana is pissed at his dad for knowing that Elsa talks in her sleep.

In my opinion Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is in fact just more of the same, but with a new coat and here and there some innovations (which don't have a big influence on the familiar gameplay). How LucasArts an Traveller's Tales pulled it off remains a mystery to me, but they succeeded to make a fun and interesting game with a reasonably large replay value while using the same concepts and gameplay. I wouldn't call this game a top title, but it's certainly worth playing, especially when you can find someone else to join you.

Lego Indiana Jones est un des meilleurs jeux 360 destiné au grand public. Simple sans être enfantin, drôle, bien pensé et relativement joli, il n'a qu'un défaut, celui de lasser quelque peu après un certain nombre de niveaux, variés visuellement mais souvent proche en terme d'expérience de jeu. On compensera cela grâce au mode coopération, parfait pour aider un jouer plus jeune, un(e) partenaire débutant(e) ou simplement s'amuser à deux. Revisiter sous forme de legos les scènes épiques d'une saga cinématographique que tout le monde a dans un coin de l'esprit au moment de sa renaissance sur les grands écrans est un vrai plaisir. Lego Indiana Jones est clairement un hommage à deux monde qui ont enchanté jeunes et moins jeunes, qui peuvent se retrouver manette en main, ce qui n'est pas forcément le cas dans de nombreux jeux.

I think that the Star Wars universe is naturally a better fit for Travelers' Tales' LEGO series. In LEGO Indiana Jones, for example, the combat isn't as fun, thanks to the lack of lightsabers. That said, this is still a fun spin on the famous Indiana Jones trilogy. The puzzle-centric level design is satisfying and adds depth. Personally, I think I just like the Indy series more than Star Wars, so for me, it's hard not to smile while playing through the game (although I have to say that there are moments where it feels like the game's attempt at humor falls a little flat).

Bienheureux seront les fans d’Indiana Jones parcourant pour la première fois cette transposition vidéoludique en mode Lego. Le titre est un vrai bonheur pour les amateurs de l’archéologue, tant l’ambiance des films s’y retrouve fidèlement retranscrite. D’un point de vue purement ludique, la production de Traveller’s Tales se contente cependant d’appliquer la recette éprouvée par Lego Starwars, sans vraiment prendre de risque. Les amateurs de puzzle apprécieront, mais si vous vous êtes déjà lassé des précédents titres estampillés Lego, celui-ci risque de vous laisser de marbre. Pour les autres, une seule chose à dire : la veste en cuir et le chapeau n’attendent plus que vous.

Er sieht ungefähr aus wie Indiana Jones, und alles um ihn herum klingt nach Indiana Jones. Mit den Rechten für die Filmmusik haben sich die Entwickler auch schon einen großen Teil des Erfolgs gesichert, denn vom ersten Moment an hat man Indy-Atmospähre im Legoland. Dazu kommt der Spielinhalt: Genau wie in den Filmen geht es um Action und cleveres Verhalten beim Rätselknacken, die Umsetzung ist absolut großartig gelungen. Da verschmerzt man dann auch, dass der eine oder andere Sprung ins Leere geht, weil die Sicht nicht optimal ist. Denn: Hier ist einfach jede Menge vom feinsten Indiana Jones drin, den man sich wünschen kann. Die Lego-Umsetzung bürgt außerdem dafür, dass auch Kinder sich schon in archäologische Abenteuer stürzen können, die Optik und die Umsetzung sind ohne Frage kindertauglich. Und das finden wir rundum "gut".

Lego Indiana Jones ist ein absolut gelungenes Spiel für die ganze Familie mit viel Abwechslung, einer Unmenge an freispielbaren Boni, einem hohen Wiederspielwert, sowie einem höchst unterhaltsamen Coopmodus, der aber leider nur an einem Rechner gespielt werden kann. Der Storymodus selbst sorgt leider dabei nur für ca. 6-7 Stunden Spielvergnügen, wenn man ihn auf die schnelle Art erledigt. Legt man aber mehr Wert auf Secretsuche und das "perfekte" Abenteuer, beschäftigt das Spiel locker für gut 20 Stunden mit einer stimmigen Mischung der Genre Action, Jump & Run und Rätseleinlagen, sowie einem einmaligen Sinn für Humor. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist moderat, wobei aber die zusätzlichen Secrets für Profis ausreichend Herausforderung bieten. Was will man mehr?

Lego Indy’s grootste nadeel is het gebrek aan karakteristieke personages, hierdoor voelt het avontuur leeg aan. Ik heb het vermoeden dat Lego Batman, met name door badguys als The Joker en Catwomen, straks meer tot de verbeelding zal spreken.

Indiana Jones is een buitengewoon leuk platformspel dat behoorlijk wat verfrissende spelelementen kent en de films op een komische manier weet te brengen. Vooral in de coöperatieve spelmodus is het een waar genot om te spelen, maar ook in je eentje staat Indy garant voor de nodige uren speelplezier. Daar kunnen de technische mankementjes, de ontbrekende online modus en de ietwat lage moeilijkheidsgraad nauwelijks iets aan veranderen.

Lego Indy is a thoroughly entertaining retelling of the classic film trilogy. Fans of either the films or previous Star Wars games will enjoy this the most, although knowledge of the film isn’t essential to take pleasure from it. There are concerns of whether or not the game progressed enough from its Star Wars origins, but considering the old formula worked so well was there any need to change it? Yes there are niggles, which need to be looked into before future releases, and the lack of multiplayer is a huge drawback, but the experience is still good. For a system that is criticised for the lack of games, you could do a lot worse that this.

If you enjoyed the Lego Star Wars games and didn’t feel that they were getting tired by the end of the second game, then you’ll love this release. However, if you were expecting this title to revitalise the franchise, or are deeply-offended by the thought of a watered down version of the Indiana Jones story being told, then this is probably not the game for you. For everyone else, sitting happily in the middle of those two extremes there are a few hours of solid, if uninspiring, entertainment to be had.

Despite the cutesy idea, there is a pretty solid game buried inside of Lego Indiana Jones. It may tell a story everyone has seen a million times on the silver screen, but the little Lego quirks and the odd level designs make it worth a look. Lego Indiana Jones is at least more solid than any Lego structure anyone will ever build.

The magic just isn't here. Repeating the success of Star Wars with a radically different license requires more than Star Wars as a foundation. It really never finds Indiana Jones' pulse, and ends up being somewhat a mess, albeit a moderately fun one.

What it boils down to is that if you've played any of the previous LEGO games, you know pretty well what you're getting into with LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. The shift in focus from combat to puzzles suits the theme, but it's somewhat marred in execution. I appreciate what the developers were trying to do, but a bit more polish really could have helped elevate this. It lacks the recent summer blockbuster from its roster, though it still seemed set to release alongside it. Perhaps a little more time in the development oven could have ironed out the last wrinkles and made it more solid and compelling. As it is, it's an OK title with lots of replay value for fans of the source material, but serious action junkies could probably get that itch scratched better elsewhere.

However, some crucial things are also missing. The graphics still lag behind other big releases on current gen consoles, even if the style works. The fact that online co-op is missing is totally baffling as it was in Lego Star Wars: TCS, and a real disappointment. Also, the gunplay is poor, with guns that run out of ammo far too quickly, resulting in far more hand-to-hand combat. Whilst it's more satisfying than before, you still end up dying a lot more than in previous titles. Then, the lack of modes compared to previous games is also surprising. It almost feels like a budget LEGO release. Therefore, despite the improvements, the game still feels like a step back from LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. If you love Indy, and you love LEGO games, then you'll still have a lot of fun, but you may just feel a little short-changed by the experience.

Like the DS version, we’re going to score this a very respectable and lovely seven out of ten. Not because it does anything majorly wrong, but because it does everything nice and right and doesn’t take any risks. At the risk of coming to a similar conclusion again, we’ll leave it at that. If you liked the Star Wars LEGO title then you’ll like this. If you like Indiana Jones you’ll like this. If you want a decent offline co-op game to play on your Wii, then you should get this. All in all, well worth a pop if it takes your fancy.

Although quite a fun game, LEGO Indy shrinks in stature when compared the previous LSW games. The characters aren't as interesting, there's no Force, and there aren't any lasers. It does do a decent job of meandering through the three films, and there is something endearing about the collect-a-thon structure of the game. We just hope that Traveller's Tales doesn't keep pumping out the same game, or even the kiddies will get sick of it. Enjoy LEGO Indy for the movie moment flashbacks and block-smashing puzzles, but beware the repetition.

But love for the subject matter aside, the problems we mentioned at the start of the review make LEGO Indy the worst LEGO game to date. The levels aren’t that interesting, the mixture of real-world textures and plastic LEGO pieces jars and the characters are nowhere near as desirable as the Star Wars gang. It’s just never that exciting, which is surprising considering what a constant thrill the films are. It’s fun in small doses, but not as consistently entertaining as LEGO Star Wars.

Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures doesn't quite live up to its Star Wars cousins, mainly due to the fact that Star Wars is simply a more memorable series, but it's still a brilliant adventure and great fun. Although the gameplay is quite familiar, the settings and puzzles make for a game that feels quite different to Lego Star Wars. Traveller's Tales' latest is unlikely to evoke the same kind of memories in as many people as Lego Star Wars did, but Lego Indiana Jones is still an adventure worth taking.

The lack of online co-operative gameplay is also something of a disappointment, especially when all the current consoles sport parental controls that help protect children. The fact is that LEGO Indy, like its Star Wars cousins before it, is much more appealing during co-op play - so linking up for online co-op would have meant that there'd be a higher chance of getting the full experience. Hopefully this is something that Travellers Tales will look into for their next adventure in LEGO, revolving around DC Comics' Batman, which is due to arrive this Autumn...

None of my critical grumbles, therefore, should be taken to mean that LEGO Indiana Jones is a crushing disappointment or an easy cash-in on a popular template. In gameplay terms it represents a commendable improvement on an already solid framework and seems to captivate its young players with the same gently challenging grip o' fun as LEGO Star Wars did. It's just a shame that this evolution seems to have come at the expense of many of the peripheral activities that made the previous LEGO games a more robust and varied experience in the long term. Parents, and shameless big kids of all ages, should certainly snap up a copy - just be prepared to unearth most of its treasure sooner rather than later.

LEGO Indiana Jones gets a lot of things right. Aside from some outdated textures, this is a sharp-looking game that lovingly recreates the Indiana Jones universe in classic LEGO style. The soundtrack, too, is gorgeous, seeing as it's another one of John Williams' renowned scores. But we can't help but notice that developer Traveller's Tales has not done much to upgrade the gameplay mechanics. Fans of Indiana Jones, which is just about everyone, will still enjoy this game for its charm and co-op fun, but we've come to expect a bit more polish and refinement out of a series on its third installment. Sort of like the new film, this one's good, but falls short of greatness.

Wrapped in heart-warming nostalgia or not, shortcomings do exist, and all the Lego bricks in the world can't disguise that. The fact remains that Lego Indiana Jones, like Lego Star Wars before it, isn't a particularly great platformer when you take the licences away.

I really came into this with high hopes for Lego Indiana Jones. The very idea of it brought pleasant childhood memories to the fore, so I really did want the game to be good. Perhaps that very eagerness led to somewhat more disappointment than would have otherwise been elicited by the ultimate banality of the proceedings. Having said that, if you’re one of those who enjoyed Lego Star Wars, you should have fun playing Lego Indiana Jones as well. Very young or nostalgic gamers might really get a kick out of this one too. Sadly, those of us who can lay claim to having grown up in any respect may not.

Lego Indiana Jones är långt ifrån ett dåligt spel och hade det varit det första i Lego-film-spel-serien hade betyget förmodligen blivit högre. Nu börjar det redan bekanta bli för bekant i sig, och med ett kommande Lego Batman känns det kreativa i originalfusionen långt bort och det profithungriga lite för nära.

So, in the end, perhaps the worst thing you can say about Lego Indy is that it is not as instantly likeable as the Lego Star Wars games, and that it’s more of a relationship you’ll have to work at instead of being the love at first sight Travellers Tales' previous efforts were. However, many would argue that those are the kind of relationships that always end up working out best in the end. Although I would have to admit I’d still only give this one a six, even if I had a few drinks on me at the time.

On pouvait craindre qu'après le succès des LEGO Star Wars, Traveller's Tales se repose calmement sur ses lauriers et profite du bon buzz autour de l'homme au chapeau et au fouet, mais il n'en est rien. La recette pour Indiana Jones est, certes, à peu près la même dans les grandes lignes, mais exécutée non sans respect tant de la licence que du joueur. Notre Lego aventurier se lance donc dans un jeu mêlant plates-formes, action et recherche avec, qui plus est, la possibilité de jouer avec un camarade en coop. Même si le découpage des niveaux fini par être plus ou moins toujours le même avec une mécanique finalement répétitive, qui plus est déjà vue dans les autres jeux, LEGO Indiana Jones se laisse parcourir avec plaisir et légèreté. Les fans apprécieront... plus que le dernier film ?

WiiThe Video Game Critic
The game's musical score is first-rate, and the mildly amusing cut-scenes try to water down the more graphic parts of the films. There's an auto-save feature, but even when you complete a stage, it doesn't save until you continue, so don't be too quick to hit the power button. I hate to rain on the parade, but I found Lego Indiana Jones to be only moderately fun, and boring at times. It's interesting to see the game's interpretation of the films' scenes, but after a while you feel like you're just going through the motions.
