LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues for PC, X360 and etc. is a continuation of the LEGO-based adventures of Indiana Jones, the famous archeologist/traveller created by Steven Spielberg. The second installment of the series enables us to take part in the events from both the original trilogy, as well as his latest adventure: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
When it comes to the original trilogy, we are left with additional missions that shed new light on the events that received less screentime, including the famous pursuit through the streets of Shanghai seen in the second movie. Our hero has also been subjected to a number of changes, as he is now equipped with a set of new animations, as well as a more useful whip which enables him to pull his opponent in and perform a wrestling throw. The story seen in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull allows us to assume control over Mutt William, and engage in adrenaline-inducing pursuits using his trademark motorcycle or witness the power of the titular Crystal Skull.
Aside from more detailed graphics, the levels are filled with additional interactive objects. The heroes can now pick up various objects (pistols, swords, bottles, or pieces of furniture) and use them in combat, or take control of a number of vehicles, including mining wagons or planes. As a somewhat of a trademark of the series, we can switch between heroes at once or invite a friend in order to complete the current level in both Story and Free Play mode. The authors have also introduced a level editor that can be used to create new levels, modify already existing ones, and finally share our works with other users. Finally, thorough players can unlock over 60 playable characters, including Marion Ravenwood, Short Round, Rene Belloq, Willie Scott, Marcus Brody, Dr. Henry Jones Sr., and Irina Spalko.
