Lego Indiana Jones features stories from the first three Indiana Jones movies; namely, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
However, as a common trope with all Lego games, they tend to follow a more whimsical version of the storylines from the original material with Lego Indiana Jones being no different to this style of gameplay; the developers focusing on giving a comedic experience suitable for players of all ages rather than exactly recreating the movies.
While playing, players may unlock many characters from the Indiana Jones franchise, getting the chance to play as those characters. The total comes up to 82 characters, each with their own special abilities for players to advance through the story. Additionally, the game allows the creation of custom characters by mixing parts of different individuals to access multiple abilities.
Although the game is fully playable with two players in co-op, it does not feature any online functionality; forcing players looking for an online co-op experience to put up with local couch co-op instead.
