This is the first PS3 version of the Lego games that we have purchased, all others are the Wii versions. But generally speaking this game doesn't seem to be near as buggy as the last Indy game (which was terribly buggy on the Wii). It hasn't been without it's issues (we have had 1 freeze -had to hard power down the system and some minor buggy behavior. As usual, the graphics are nice. And, of course, it's always fun bashing things and collecting studs.
Some of the changes:
1) Each of the movies now has a separate "hub" from which you access the various levels. At first this was sort of cool. However the spaces are large and it takes a while to get to the next spot. There is a "Quick Play" option, but it's hidden in the Creator box, which you wouldn't necessarily look for.
2) They've done away with purchasing characters and extras from the store. These extras only become available one at a time as you complete certain things along the way. They are dropped in via parachute and you can elect to purchase them. If you don't purchase them right away you need to run all over the hub and try to remember where they where dropped in.
3) Bricks are different. There are 3 colors of bricks, which are now "hidden" in the hub areas.Read more ›
As every other reviewer has mentioned, the game is divided into six hubs instead of the usual one - three for Crystal Skull and one for each of the first three movies. The levels are then located within these hubs, as are the bonuses (bricks), characters, and vehicles you can unlock for purchase. The hubs are large, free-roaming areas that could potentially get confusing when it comes to figuring out the side missions, but when it comes to advancing the story along green arrows will help to point you in the right direction. Good amounts of critical thinking and planning ahead are required since certain levels may require a character with a unique ability (high jumping, shovel, etc.) to complete it, and you'll need a good memory when it comes time to go back and fetch the item/person you want because once unlocked they inhabit a specific area of the hub. Hence real young children may need guidance. The cut scenes are humorous, and some creative license was taken with the design of several of the boss fights and I thought it worked out really well. (Irina Spalko, Mola Ram, and the "ant man" were pretty cool.Read more ›
Then, there are games like "LEGO Indiana Jones 2", where the reviews are quite mixed. The general consensus seems to be, "If you love the LEGO games, you might like this game, but not love it." That's a fair statement, however, I have to admit that I enjoyed this game a lot for what it is. I think the concept of the game has confused and disappointed some of the critics and naysayers.
Here's the deal:
The first three Indiana Jones movies were already faithfully covered in the 1st LEGO Indy game. Was there any real reason for there to be a follow-up game? Not really, even though it gave us a chance to play through some levels inspired by the 4th movie. So, since Traveller's Tales and LucasArts felt obligated to recreate the 4th chapter, why not try something new?
A lot of reviewers have tried to explain how "LEGO Indiana Jones 2" works, so I'll give it a try. Basically, every one of these recent LEGO games starts with a Hub, which is basically a couple of rooms serving as the menu. Each Hub had a room for buying characters, for choosing your missions, and for few other simple tasks. When you picked a level, you'd have to navigate large rooms with plenty of secrets to find.
Now, that formula has been reversed for "LEGO Indy 2". Here, the missions themselves are just one room with some quick obstacles, and the Hub is the monstrous area with all the secrets and puzzles. In other words, the main menu of the game is where you'll spend most of your time, where the individual missions are bite-sized bits of action.Read more ›
