With the larger-than-life Indiana Jones slashing his whip across the big screen in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a smaller, blockier version is leading families on a humorous romp through the earlier movies in Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, a video game that goes on sale across all platforms June 3.

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.

The latest in the LEGO series is all-in-all a fun and replayable single player game with some great additions for multiplayer as well, if you can overlook the sometimes hideous camera problems. The game is not only fun to play it can be fiendishly addictive and will have you coming back for more.

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".

Gamer 2.0 (Jun 18, 2008)
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.

It doesn't change the LEGO formula but with great movie moments and loads of genuine-if-simple fun, it's still a good little game.

Nintendo Life (Jul 05, 2008)
Overall LEGO Indiana Jones is a very good quality game that comes highly recommended, it sticks to a perfect difficultly level for the majority of gamers throughout and should be a huge hit with fans of the franchise. Puzzles do become slightly tedious towards the end, but it still remains one of the most enjoyable and well rounded titles so far this year.

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.

Cheat Code Central (Jun, 2008)
If you're looking for an entirely new gameplay experience from the folks at LucasArts, then you won't find it in LEGO Indiana Jones. However, this is the most polished and enjoyable entry in the LEGO series of games. The great puzzles, platforming mechanics, array of collectibles, and quality presentation make this title an outstanding option for EVERYONE 10+!

EmpireOnline.com (May 07, 2008)
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.

IGN (May 29, 2008)
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.

GameSpy (Jun 02, 2008)
That's the real charm of these movie-licensed LEGO games. The gameplay may be relatively simplistic, but with their great sense of humor, clever level design, and tons of hidden secrets, gamers of all ages can enjoy them. Now the real question is, how long do we have to wait until we see a LEGO-ized "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"?

GameSpot (Jun 02, 2008)
Lego Indiana Jones serves as the expected progression from the Lego Star Wars games. The great pacing, humorous cutscenes, and challenging-but-not-cheap puzzles make this the most enjoyable Lego game yet. It's not the hardest game, but it has enough hidden goodies to make you play through more than once. Both newcomers and diehard fans of Traveller's Tales' previous Lego offerings will find plenty to enjoy here.

GameDaily (Jun 03, 2008)
Lego Indiana Jones may not offer a significant amount of difference over the previously released Lego Star Wars games, but it's a blockbuster anyway. The humor is on-target, the action never wears out, the unlockable content and co-op support guarantees numerous replays, and the presentation is mostly sufficient. Don't hesitate to unearth this treasure.

Gameswelt (Jun 18, 2008)
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.

Ultimately, the main draw of LEGO Indiana Jones is playing through many of the movies' most memorable moments in the charming LEGO style, and the game definitely succeeds in doing that.

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.

Cubed3 (Jun 27, 2008)
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.

Jeuxvideo.com (Jun 09, 2008)
Pour fêter son come-back sur grand écran, Indiana Jones nous propose de revivre ses toutes premières aventures par le biais d'un jeu vidéo qui se veut à la fois un hommage et une parodie de l'oeuvre originale. La deuxième grande saga de George Lucas après Star Wars se voit donc elle aussi convertie à la sauce Lego, pour un résultat qui s'adresse essentiellement aux fans.

videogamer.com (Jun 03, 2008)
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.

GamesRadar (Jun 03, 2008)
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.

DarkZero (Jun 13, 2008)
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.

The Video Game Critic (Jul 13, 2008)
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.
