LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures video review
Once again rendering a beloved George Lucas creation in LEGOs, LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures features the intrepid explorer in an epic adventure based on the film series. Developed by the same team that created the LEGO Star Wars series, LEGO Indiana Jones presents a tongue-in-cheek take on the first three cinematic adventures of pop culture’s most iconic archaeologist, including Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
He’s survived crocodiles, plane crashes, and far too many snakes, but how does Indy fare against plastic bricks? Find out in this LEGO Indiana Jones video review:
To quote the video review: “Successfully converting both Star Wars trilogies into LEGO form, Travellers Tales has turned its attention to Indiana Jones, employing the same quirky humor and block-busting gameplay that made its last project a fan favorite. Swinging through jungles, mountains, and lava-filled caves in search of the world’s most valuable treasures, Indy has always had trouble keeping one step ahead of the bad guys, but can he survive being transformed into a plastic plaything?
Above all, this is a game for Indiana Jones fans. Half the fun of LEGO Indiana Jones lies in seeing the classics reborn in a form that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The gameplay is simple enough for anyone to pick up–making it a great title to play with friends or family—but those who go beyond casual will find it a little too simple. It’s another coat of paint slathered on the LEGO Star Wars template, but at least it’s a pretty color.”
