I'm a real fan of the lego series of console games. Lego indiana jones follows the same format as the other lego games and is probably best described as a platformer. You play different adventures and collect gems along the way. It has good, clear graphics for a psp game and is suitable for all ages. It contains some good cartoon humour and i personally think the story line is great. The control system is very easy to pick up as is control of cars and trucks and other in game items. Not only can you work through the adventure but you can also go back to different levels in freemode and find secret areas and gems. You can also play as a variety of characters and some puzzles can only be solved if you play as a specific character. Overall, i think this an excellent game and very family friendly and i would absolutely recommend it.
As a complete novice to the gaming world, I have found that Lego Indiana Jones is one of the best games I have played so far. The graphics on the PSP are really good and extremely clear, you can even see the expression on Indiana's face when one of his sidekicks does something stupid! There are 3 main levels to the game, which are based on the 3 original films. Each level plays as close to the film as possible, giving you tips as you play the game. When you have completed each level you have a choice of carrying on with the game or returning back to that level with your choice of characters. There are a number of tasks that need to be done and they are not necessarily straight forward. For each item you hit or blow up, you pick up studs which are bronze, silver or gold, these add to your overall score and enable you to buy characters in the college, also you may hit an item and collect red hearts, this will prolong your characters life. There are also 10 artefacts pieces to collect which when collected together produce a complete artefact. Overall this game is suitable for the young and the young at heart, a game well worth playing
If you are familiar with the previous Lego games of past years (Star Wars...) you'll know that you have a very similar game here. The game is a platformer structured around the idea of collaboration between two or more characters. Each one has different abilities, and levels are a series of puzzles where you must use each character to do a particular task to allow the other to progress before both of you can go on. The idea is interesting and works good in a movie context. Going through the level is fun, although replaying for a better score often feels like a chore, and the recreation of the movies in LEGO form is really, really nice. If you've seen the movies the anticipation (to see how a particular scene has been rendered) is part of the enjoyment.
The formula works and that's why the LEGO games have spawned a whole series. The bad thing, if you want to find one, is that it's just not new. So, if you haven't played any of the LEGO Star Wars games before, you'll have fun with this. If you did, you might start to feel that you're bored by it too soon.
