Lego Indiana Jones for the DS - Great Fun For Any Age

Lego Indiana Jones DS Review: So Addictive!

I've been playing Lego Indiana Jones non stop for the past week — in the car, on the train, and every spare second I have at home. It's really that addicting, and that much fun! When I first heard about the Lego series of games, I laughed it off thinking it couldn't really hold my attention. But after playing Lego Star Wars on the GameCube at a pal's house, I was hooked! It's a game that's not too hard, not too easy, and totally worth picking up.

In this puzzle game, you play as Dr. Jones, making your way through the jungles of South America to the mountains of India, collecting goodies and beating your adversaries in each movie themed section. To learn more about this game, see some screen shots and to find out what my favorite console is to play it on, just

.

From the start of this game, you'll have characters that you switch back and forth between to help you along the way, like playing as Indy to whip swing across a river of lava, and then switching to Short Round to squeeze through a tight entryway. How does the Lego theme come into play you ask? Well, Indiana can build platforms, bridges, and other helpful things out of Legos once he finds a hidden pile. And besides, seeing Indiana as a Lego man is pretty funny, especially when his head pops off!

Although you can choose between a number of consoles to play Lego Indiana Jones, playing on the DS is particularly fun. The magic of the DS comes alive while playing, and all of its features are utilized: you can use the microphone to blow out candles, blow up rafts to cross streams, and use the touch screen to activate your tools along the way. The graphics are surprisingly good, and I could see everything I needed to see without squinting. Plus, replay value is high with this title, since you'll never be able to find all the hidden treasures in your first try.

Overall, I think Lego Indiana Jones is a great game to play anytime, anywhere; and the $30 I spent for the DS version was the best money I've spent in a long time! What's more, the Lego fun won't stop here. There's a Lego Batman coming in September — surely to be added to the top of your Fall game wish lists!

Lego Indiana Jones is out now! Pick it up online.

I have for it the PS3, but I'm kinda wishing I got it for the DS now too. Portable Indy does sound like a good idea...

I have it for the Wii and I beat it! Woo Hoo! :) It has a learning thing on it where it can detect if it's too easy for you (or too hard). We also have the Star Wars Lego game for the Wii (the all three version) which has the same thing. The Star Wars Lego I and Star Wars Lego II doesn't and was kind of easy. Yes, we have them all. There is just something about breaking a lego person into pieces... ;)

It's definitely fun on a nostalgic level too! For those of you that were disappointed in Indy 4, romping through lego versions of the classics is a really good time. I love the DS version, portable Indy rules :)

I have Lego Star Wars for DS and while it's really cute, it's also really easy. I actually got bored with it and put it down. Maybe I can talk my dad into buying Indy for himself and I'll try his copy before I drop another $30 on a Lego game. I want to like this, but I'll have to try it first.

i was planning to pick it up for my wii but thought the demo looked to weird. maybe i'll camp out at game stop and get in some playing time to see if i really like it before i buy.
