The Lego series has had a pretty loyal following since the beginning. It’s not hard to see why. These games feature Legos at their finest and re-tell some epic stories found in a lot of iconic movies.
From Lord of the Rings to Star Wars, the Lego games are always a good time for gamers looking to have a fun, yet casual experience. If you enjoy this series and have an Xbox Live Gold membership, then you can add to your collection for free as Lego Indiana Jones is going free on the platform mid-November.
This beloved action-adventure game originally debuted back on the PS3 and Xbox 360. At the time, it was positively regarded for its funny writing, enjoyable gameplay, and beautiful representation of the Indiana Jones franchise.
At its heart, Lego Indiana Jones is a game about re-living some of Dr. Jones’ best moments in the movies. You have the scene when he has to outrun the giant bolder, the part when the bridge collapses, and even the clip when Jones falls into a pit of deadly snakes. It’s all here in this Lego game, which is perfect if you’ve enjoyed watching these movies over the years.
The game also does a great job mixing in puzzle-solving with combat. You’ll move throughout different areas performing various actions, including running, jumping, and swimming. Your main resource — which comes as no surprise — is a signature whip. It can be used to attack enemies, disarm them, and grab onto levers. It definitely is a helpful resource to have as you make your way through the fun-looking environments that are spot on to what were featured in all of the movies.
You have other weapons to rely on as well, including swords, guns, and even chairs. If you can pick it up, you can probably use it as a weapon. Also unique is the fact that you can mix and match body parts of more than 60 characters, allowing you to tap into your creative side. You should since you’re dealing with Legos after all.
There are classic returning characters as well that you’ll enjoy interacting with again if you’ve seen the movies. The Lego games are pretty consistent in their fun nature and this offering is no different. You don’t have to pay anything for it if you have an Xbox Live Gold membership, which just further shows what incredible value this platform is for gamers looking to expand their library with all-time classics.
