The second Lego Indiana Wii game is out now, but is the original still worth picking up too?

In My Experience

As mentioned, I love Indy and I used to work at Lego. So this game was always going to rock with me. If youíve played any Lego game before, then this is the same, but with the Indiana Jones storylines, locations and the characters. Special mention for the music, as itís so atmospheric and added to the experience. The puzzles were linear and obvious, only made tricky by some awkward jumps and lack of clarity on certain sections. But that might just be me!

The collecting aspects really played to my compulsive nature as there are so many characters and power ups to collect, as well as trying for True Adventurer status each time. It really offers a challenge. One thing, with the camera being unforgiving and loads happening on-screen, 2 players may find it a bit frustrating, depending on your daily mood.

Last Word

Indy + Lego = gaming magic. Itís a great game with atmosphere in buckets, loads of things to find and captures the Indy films perfectly. The only minor concerns might be the two-player camera issue and the samey style of smash, build, explore and collect. But these are nothing really and the game is totally endearing and yes, F-U-N.

One of my favourite Wii games for sure.

Quote

Lego Indiana Jones is quite simply terrific. Itís all good. More atmosphere than Lego Star Wars and Batman, Indiana and pals deserve your attention.

"I remember watching and waiting for Teletext pages to tell me the latest and greatest video game news in the 80s and 90s. What better way then, to review the best of those old games with some choice new titles here and there."

Here are the games I've been playing recently:

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
