LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac|Life has published a new review of LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. Brought to Macs by Feral Interactive, the game follows Indy’s escapades through the jungles of South America to the mountaintops of India. Mac|Life gave LEGO Indy a score of 4 out of 5.

When playing alone, you control multiple characters throughout the 3D environments, switching between them with a button-press. Sometimes two characters need to work together—say, Indiana stands on a platform while Marion turns a crank to raise him into the air. The cool thing is, another human player can join in (or quit) at anytime, even right in the middle of a level. Since two heads are better than one, co-op mode might help you solve some of the trickier puzzles too (search Google for “Lego Indiana Jones walkthrough” if you keep getting stuck). You fight enemies with punches, your trusty whip, or projectiles or guns. Occasionally you’ll need to pilot a vehicle, and the steering leaves a lot to be desired, but luckily those sequences are short.
Playing through everything in Story mode took us about 10 hours, but we’d still only unlocked 53 percent of the game, since a lot of treasures and special items can’t be reached with the characters you have available. For example, Short Round can crawl through hatches, but you only have him in the Temple of Doom levels. Still, the Raiders of the Lost Ark levels are silly with hatches. To complete everything, you’d have to go back and replay all the missions in Free Play mode, where you can use whatever characters you like.
