    If you have played a video game in your life, then you probably heard of the Lego game franchise. Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman, Lego Lord of the Rings and many more...

    Lego Indian Jones 2 follows the Movie Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But of course has its silly moments, puzzles, jump tricks and cooperative game-play.

    Rule of Thumb
    High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
    Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Apply the changes and start your game.

    Conclusion:
    LEGO Indiana Jones 2 ran perfectly with hardly any extra configuration. I used the keyboard because Wine is known to not be totally compatible with controllers. The visuals were very nice and the frame rate was great with my GeForce 550 Ti.
