Review – LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues (PSP)

If you’ve never picked up one of Traveller’s Tales LEGO-themed games, it’s something I’d recommend for most people. Sure, they seem a bit childish, but when you combine the nostalgic feel of LEGO’s with Star Wars, Batman or Indiana Jones you’re going to have a good time. The second LEGO Indiana Jones game has been released, and today I’ll bring you my thoughts on the PSP version.

If you’ve played any of the previous LEGO games, then you’ll be in familiar territory. The premise is to run around, smash things, build stuff and solve puzzles. Along the way you’ll collect studs and bricks that will allow you to unlock new characters, maps and bonuses.

Review – Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron (PSP)

I’ve played a number of PSP titles, and it’s always interesting to see how a developer gets around the limitation of having only a single analog stick to work with. It can provide some significant obstacles, but generally they overcome them. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for LucasArts and Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron.

This latest installment in the Battlefront series places you in the boots of a clone trooper who was created from the DNA of a Jedi Master. I’ll admit that playing a cloned Jedi does have its appeals, but the game never really follows through on this. You’re simply another trooper with skills moderately better than the rest. There’s also a story of two brothers on separate sides of the battlefield, which doesn’t end up being nearly as interesting as one would hope.
