With great humour to buoy a colossal adventure that's brimming with clever ideas, the new LEGO Indy is every inch the 'block' buster.
There are all kinds of reasons lately to marvel at computer games, keeping consoles the centre of attention this Christmas. In the case of LEGO Indy 2 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it's a combination of the visually authentic LEGO worlds sprung to life and the conveyor belt of gag-driven gameplay ideas. Even the original movies upon which the game is based do not boast the same intensity of comedic thrills and spills. Of course LEGO Indy cannot compete for grandeur, but makes up for it with style.
