LEGO is cool, Indiana Jones is cool, whips are cool and escaping fast moving boulders is especially cool. So   mixing plot elements of Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade with Lego is a  winning recipe. Just like Lego Star  Wars beforeit, this extremely tongue-in-cheek take on the movie trilogy  reinterprets classic Indiana Jones scenes to have you laughing from beginning to end. Be warned though: you can play this by yourself, but it isn’t any where near as fun without a friend in co-op mode. Simple puzzles and fight scenes occur non-stop, but the highlight is the sprinkling of very creative puzzles. These require significant teamwork and lateral thinking which provides huge satisfaction when complete, especially if you were able to  figure it out before your friend. I don’t know anyone who dislikes this franchise. It won’t ever be a blockbuster, but it is addictive fun.
