Playing with Lego

After posting my last blog posting on a Lego video game, I should point out that there are also versions of Lego Harry Potter for other platforms including the Mac and other platforms. There are also other Lego games for other films and these are quite a lot of fun too.

One the many games that are out that I have enjoyed is Indiana Jones. I have the first version on the PS3 and have played the same port on the Mac.

As with all the Lego games, there is a tongue in cheek humour about the game and this is not a Legolisation of the films, no this is Lego Indiana Jones, it looks and feels like Indianan Jones, but isn’t a copy or a duplicate, it is special in it’s own right! This has all the fun aspects of the films, but in Lego.

As with other Lego games, there are puzzles and strategies you need to do before you can move onto the next level. Freeplay means that even if you finish all the levels, this doesn’t mean you have finished the game. The little film clips are amusing and cleverly done.

Quite like the idea of the sequel which is available on the Mac.

LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues combines the fun and creative construction of LEGO bricks with the wits, daring and non-stop action of one of cinema’s best loved adventure heroes. With a unique and hilarious take on all the Indiana Jones films – including for the first time ever Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – LEGO Indiana Jones 2 follows Dr. Jones’ escapades from the jungles of South America to the Peruvian Ruins and beyond.

You can get LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure for the Mac and other platforms, Wii, PS3, Xbox and Nintendo DS. The first Lego Indiana Jones is also available.

The other Lego game I like is Star Wars and there are now quite a few versions out.

I have played the Complete Saga on the PSP (well part two) and the Mac.

This is the definitive LEGO Star Wars comprising the first two games and expanding them with new characters, enhanced visuals, and more bonus levels than you can shake a lightsaber at.

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a family-friendly game, which is both funny and challenging. Pick and choose your characters wisely to engage in combat, solve puzzles and work together as a team to defeat the dark side.

Like the other Lego games, much of the same kind of play, but in the Star Wars universe. Like Indy there is a tongue in cheek aspect to the game and the little film clips, which makes this great fun for all the family.

Quite looking forward now to playing Lego Pirates of the Caribbean having recently had a quick go in the local computer store.

Never liked the films though….
