After the always-brilliant 'Lego Star Wars' series, it made a lot of sense to turn to Lucas's other successful franchise, the Indiana Jones films. Yes, I greeted the idea with a firm head-nodding and elbow-jabbing. It seemed a shrewd move, considering the arrival of the fourth installment. And, as always with the Lego games, there is a marked improvement in graphics and playability.
But, as Mr. Burns said to Martin, "Where is the love?". This game stinks of 'going through the motions'. Lego Star Wars was made by Star Wars fans: the in-jokes, the scene parodies and the hidden winks to the films made the games what they are. Unfortunately, Lego Indiana Jones was also made by Star Wars fans. It just doesn't have the same love that its big brothers had.
There is something to be said about solving arguments with a lightsaber. The whip and shovel, I'm sorry to say, just don't stand up against it..
