Lego Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues (Wii) Review – It’s Still a Great Misadventure Even Without Whiplash Restrictions.

The original LEGO Star Wars game was a uniquely created game. It provided a new and fun experience. Due to the success of the original game, the creators made similar games such as Batman and Indiana Jones. Now, its latest offerings include the sequel of Indiana Jones. However, the new game is more likely the same as other Lego games and the gameplay is more or less like the other LEGO titles. The character destroys everything that can be destroyed and collect the rewards.

In this edition, the most notable addition to the gameplay is the unrestrained usage of the whiplash already. In the first Indiana Jones game, the whiplash could only be used in a restrictive manner where you had to be near the target, for one. The Wii now allows you to use the whip your target whenever and wherever you need it; which gives you a wider spot, rather than a small or restricted area. The only limitation is you can only use it on specific characters in a certain level.

This new LEGO Indiana Jones 2 title put huge focus on the movie, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Surprisingly, the creators of this new game somehow ended up integrating the past movie editions of the Indiana Jones series. This created a mess as players are thrown into confusion on what really is happening; other things that are not part of any movie edition even happen inexplicably. Also, while all other LEGO games feature buying new characters and vehicles capabilities, that aspect does not exist in this new installment.

The story line of the game does not present any surprises and that makes the whole experience boring. The addition of bonus stages even fails to save it with the dismal approach that can really bore you to tears all throughout. Some parts of the games let you fight off enemies in bunches, but they’re not even particularly created not with combat in mind; you get the feeling that its sole purpose is only to make the game longer and the experience excessive.

The essence of having a single approach that focuses on a specific movie series of a certain movie to the game is gone in this new game. The game was not created in support of the Indiana Jones movie editions; it was then a destruction of the movie editions as it is put into a one single game that makes it confusing. The creators have forgotten the former aspects of the original game in this new game by now making the character purchasable. It is done through fighting enemies and acquiring them directly in a certain stage. It has contributed to lack of inventory and upgrades to the brick collected in the game. By reason of the integration, there some parts of the game that will eventually make you lost. It is already very hard to cope up with the storyline as it involves other storylines of other Indiana Jones movies as well.

A new thing introduced in the game is the level creator where you can create pre existing levels but it will never look good as to the original made by Traveller’s Tales. At first it would be exciting to create your own challenges but it will be for naught because there is no online connectivity for the game.

If you plan on buying this new game, my advice is to buy the original Indiana Jones game. with too many loopholes in this new game, any beginner would not be satisfied and would be asking for more.
