    I'm loving it at the moment - I did get a wireless 360 controller to go with it though. The keyboard isn't the most intuitive interface for a 3d platformer, but it's not that bad. Two people sharing a keyboard is not fun, I have yet to see whether one player can be on a controller, and one on a keyboard.

    The 360 controller wasn't just for this - it's also for a bit of casual GRIDding.

    Great review, but I don't find myself grading it a 7 - The lego games all fill me with a sort of child-like glee, and they're great for a quick half hour.

    Is the keyboard interface the only real complaint for the PC version? When we got the Lego Star Wars games, we bought a couple game pads for the PC, and I've been trying to decide whether to get the Indiana Jones games on PC or the Wii.

    I agree with the interface, i played the demo on the keyboard and promptly bought a x360 pad with the game. But thats the only problem i had with it being on the pc.

    I've got to say i miss my lightsaber though, gun battles are much harder when you can't bounce the blaster shots back at the bad guys.

    Oooh, I can't wait to play this. Probably on my DS, unless anyone convinces me otherwise.

    Did Lego Star Wars on the DS have cutscenes? I don't remember any :-S

    When I played the demo I decided it needed a controller, other than that it's brilliant; indeed, dare I say it, better than Lego:SW...

    looks decent but on an off topic moment who else thought the new Indie movies sucked, I mean really 19 years for that... what a joke...

    Bought the 360 version, apart from the odd irritating puzzle (I'm looking at the double rotating pillar bounce in ToD to get a chest here) I'm really enjoying it.

    Bought the DS version last night on the way home from work and it is great fun, only played through the first 3 levels (don't want to burn through it all too fast) and it is just what I was expecting

    I hope it isn't as buggy aas the lego star wars on DS. I had to return it because it was so bad it was unplayable! I'll wait a bit to find out....

    The original trillogy on the DS was very very buggy but the complete saga was fine, they redid all the original saga sections
