Firing Squad: LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures Review

Firing Squad writes: "Can you go back to the well too often? That's the big question that needs to be answered in any review of Traveller's Tales' LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (for PC, 360, PS3, and Wii). We already know that the concept is a great one, having already been thoroughly proven in the two flighty and fun mashings of everyone's favorite brightly colored Danish building blocks with the Star Wars saga. The basic idea, however, is so limited and so cute-dependent that you can readily imagine ennui slipping in before block-built Indy encounters his first snake.

But it doesn't. Although I came into this one with a yawn and a seen-it-all-before attitude, I was almost immediately charmed by the fast-moving action and the amiable G-rated take on what Lucas and Spielberg might have come up with if they'd worked in the medium of primary-colored building blocks. LEGO Indy plays pretty much exactly like LEGO Star Wars, however, so I was running on fumes by the time I discovered the Holy Grail in Last Crusade. Still, the affection that I have for Dr. Jones' first three adventures (yes, even Temple of Doom) outweighed any sense of boredom that began to creep in during the occasionally tedious final few hours."
