You know, LEGO is pretty magical stuff, even without the help of JK Rowling’s rabble. Ever clipped a normal LEGO piece to the underside of a Duplo monstro-block? Magic. Ever connected a man’s legs to his own head? Magic. Ever completed a Technic model? No, us neither, but apparently some people somewhere have...
If you thought last week’s trailer for the fourth Indiana Jones film felt a little flat with its combo of CG locales and one very old Harrison Ford, then you’d be happy to hear that you can trust LEGO Indiana Jones as a better outlet for your nostalgia. Developed by Traveller’s Tales - the team behind LEGO Star Wars - Indy will traverse locales from each of the first three films, while embracing youngsters who aren’t
The decision to immortalise the wise-cracking hero in LEGO form is clear: the Indiana Jones films are almost as iconic as Star Wars, and their cheeky humour runs parallel with the tongue-in-cheek approach of the recent LEGO games. With the building blocks already in place from the Star Wars games, it hasn’t been too difficult for Traveller’s Tales to whip the engine into shape and recreate the original three films in a style fit for
We've played levels from all three movies featured in the game. But how does plastic Indy stand up against plastic Han Solo? Let our words and videos inform you.
The LEGO games are coming out fast and furious (well, maybe not so furious with those affable yellow faces) with the latest Star Wars version recently released and LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game close on its heels, coming up already in May. Since it’s the first LEGO Pirates game, but the release coincides with the fourth Pirates movie, LEGO Pirates manages to cram all four Pirates movies into its story, which we’re sure will lead to bite-sized individual movie portions, but is that really a bad thing? Particularly with...
I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that I really liked the first LEGO Star Wars game. It was new, refreshing and based on fun, not realism. But since then, the sheer volume of LEGO releases has put me off somewhat. We've had Batman, more Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Rock Band, Harry Potter, even more Star Wars and now this... that's a lot of LEGO. But, based on what I've just seen, the series is on top form and slicker than ever before. Time to take notice.
Our guitars were tuned. Our amps were cranked to the max. It was time to rock. However, instead of a looking out at a packed house in a seedy dive bar, our band was on the deck of a rickety pirate ship in the middle of the frothing ocean about to open a can of rock-n-roll whup-ass on a giant, ticked-off octopus. Apparently the many-tentacled brute didn’t take too kindly to our decision to pass over his kiddo who’d recently auditioned to be our new drummer
Our first real glimpse of Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy was of Luke Skywalker running over pedestrians in a landspeeder. As he thoughtlessly careened around the streets of Mos Eisley, any Lego people who got in his way were reduced to flailing their limbs while lying helplessly on their backs. No wonder those goons in the cantina don't like him.
While it still features plenty of the adorable lightsaber-swinging, puzzle-solving, multiple-character-controlling action that made the
A rebel ship disappears from orbit, sucked into the belly of an Imperial Star Destroyer. Rebels hold their breath and take up defensive positions as a door is breached. Stormtroopers flood in. Shots are fired. Cute plastic heads clatter to the floor and slowly blink out of existence.
Beginning with the first scene of A New Hope, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy finally gives fans what they really want: the chance to play through Lego versions of the first three films. We've finally had
Hands-on time with LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy only confirms what you already knew: If this adorable game does not make you smile, you have no soul. Of course, cute ain't everything, and that's the real reason why our time traipsing through Episodes IV (A New Hope) and V (The Empire Strikes Back ) in a preview version of this Xbox 360 action/adventure was so satisfying. Not only is the game almost huggable (all these warm-fuzzy screens are taken from the Xbox 360 version), it's a
