Huge Fan of the Lego Adventure Series Until Now!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
Our entire family has loved the entire Lego Adventure series (Star Wars, Batman and the first Indy). We were so excited to see a new game out and couldn't wait to play. I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in a video game before.
It would seem to me that the programming and storylines were put together very sloppy. Definitely not up to the previous games standards. In previous games you could always find coins or something "special" hidden in the environment and architecture of the level you were playing. Most of the areas are now just graphic eye candy and very little is interactive.
To even try to explain how you enter the various levels is beyond me, other reviewers did it better. But you run around each level's entry areas aimlessly for eternity trying to find a level you haven't played yet.
As others have mentioned the replay value is nil. On all previous Lego games your aim was to get all the various characters and go back for "Free Play" to find the hidden items you couldn't get on the first round. Not applicable in this game.
There are WAY too many car levels. Basically, you jump in a vehicle and drive around destroying the environment or other vehicles. So boring and certainly not an adventure. Where are the puzzles? It really feels like they've dumbed this down or put it out too quickly to make a buck.
The one original and nice addition is the ability to fly a plane. It is cute and well done. Frankly, I think they must have put all their efforts into the plane programming because everything else is sorely lacking.
I never thought I would say this, but if another Lego adventure game comes out, I will definitely rent before I buy. Shame on Lego for putting out a this substandard game.
