LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues takes the full adventure of Indiana Jones and lets you play through the story in bite-sized levels. Here is our LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues Review.
The game is developed by TT Games and published by LucasArts and was released on November 17, 2009, for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii, and Nintendo DS. LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is also backward compatible with Xbox One and Series S|X.
The story of LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues is fine, but compared to the 1st game, they made the story a lot more confusing due to the shortening of levels and just removing a lot of the content that the 1st game had. Instead of copying the levels of the 1st game, they decided to make new levels in some sort of lite version to cram the 4th movie into the game. This is not something I personally liked because some levels are just boring now that used to be pretty good, although, I was not the biggest fan of the 1st game either.
they also added a bunch of levels that are made with the level maker, while they are not necessarily bad, they do end up being rather boring over time due to the lack of character and color to them. Where this game really shines are the open worlds each movie has. They are fun to explore and there are plenty of things to collect and characters to unlock.
Each movie ended with some weird boss battle that didn’t really fit into the story in any way, but for what it’s worth, they aren’t the worst at times, but sometimes they take longer than I would have liked just because you have to wait till the boss does something so you can do damage. The strange monster bosses do have a cool look to them, but that really is the only redeeming factor about them.
In the end, this game feels like a fleshed-out tech demo and template to build upon for future Lego games. While there is nothing wrong with it, I do think this game should have come out later and not in the state it ended up being, because it really does feel like you are playing a beta version of it, especially if you played a few games that released after this one.
The visuals are not bad for what it was at the time, the Lego characters fit perfectly with its setting and its darker colors and it just blended together pretty well. The level designs are the only thing that didn’t look that great, a lot of the time the Lego bricks stood out like a sore thumb and I felt like they didn’t really try to hide it. Especially when the colors were a bit more colorful and vibrant, it just felt really off.
