I bought the second game after I finished the first Indiana Jones which was a lot of fun too play. I was looking forward to the fourth installation of the movie series, and the new levels for the first three. But new levels here means that they totally made up scenes that don't happen in the movies, or are even contradictory to the movies. That didn't bother me that much, though.
Just like in the first one, the best thing is to simply smash everything. You might find keys or needed parts behind plants and furniture.
There are some improvements: It is mostly less frustrating than the first. Indy 1 had levels in which you are attacked from all sides at once by soldiers and flying weapons and what not, so you had a hard time getting closer to the villain. Here, you always know where the bad ones are. The levels are a lot shorter than the levels in the first version. That means you can save your progress more frequently, and it doesn't take as long to play through one level. You can now easily aim with your whip/weapon/tool at things or opponents instead of having to do a finger dance one your remote until your character faces the right way.
However, there are quite a lot of not so good things about the second game. You get confused about where to go to enter the next levels. True, there are big green arrows pointing at the doorway but you have to find these first. It's like going to a theme park in which you want to use the roller coasters in a specific order, only you don't know where they are. The levels are repetitive. Every part has one level with a never ending car chase in which you have to smash a number of villain cars. Once you finish off the first 5 or 6, you get 5 or 6 new opponents, and then 3 or 4 new opponents, then the main villain of that level .... The entire level is just driving around in circles and bumping into other vehicles. I found that extremely annoying and pointless. The final battle of the parts is always the same, the super-baddie is sitting on top of a tornado-like something and you have to throw things at it.
It is still fun to play but if I had to recommend one of the two games, I would go for part 1.
