"Charming and delightful, faithful to the source yet cheekily irreverent, and packed with features that feed into each other in satisfying ways, The Lord of the Rings marks yet another highpoint in the Lego series." - Eurogamer.com
"Lego The Lord of the Rings is perhaps the finest treasure that the partnership has yet produced, a compelling mixture of cooperative gameplay, secrets galore, and a story that remains one of the most fantastic that Hollywood has ever captured on film." - Gamespot.com
Based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, LEGO® The Lord of the Rings follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events reimagined with the humor and endless variety of LEGO play.
Trusted with the dangerous task to destroy an ancient magical ring that threatens all that is good, Frodo is forced to leave his peaceful home.

To help Frodo, a Fellowship is formed —Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Boromir a Man of Gondor, and Frodo’s Hobbit friends Sam, Merry and Pippin. Players relive the legend through the LEGO minifigures, as they explore wonders, solve timeless riddles, and overcome endless foes in their quest to destroy the Ring.

The game is super fun, I enjoyed it with my kids. It's not only for kids obviously. Everyone loves legos right? Lord of the ring is just a topper. If I could sell my next child for other lego games I would. This is full of action packed and hours of fun. The puzzles aren't too hard but the script itself is funny. No regrets here.
Easily the best Lego gamecocoawolf29 | July 25, 2014 | See all cocoawolf29's reviews »
I've played most of the other LEGO games, and this one is easily the best. It has split screen, a very important part of two player mode to make the game less frustrating. When not playing a level, one can explore the entire world seen in the Lord of the Rings movies, though the map is of course not to scale. There are hundreds of things to collect and a lot of great characters to buy. There are great weapons and toys to make, my favorite being the disco phial. One of the greatest aspects of this LEGO game is that, unlike other lego games where the characters speak in almost Sims like language, this one actually uses noises and lines from the movies. The levels are great, though sometimes there will be irritating parts where it is difficult to see what should be done. However, overall, it is a very fun experience.
A Pleasant SurprisePwnclub | April 15, 2014 | See all Pwnclub's reviews »
I've played quite a few LEGO games over the past few years. These include LEGO Indiana Jones, Star Wars: The Complete Saga, and more. I've really enjoyed playing them, and I was excited when the announcement for Lord of the Rings. I happen to be a huge fan of LOTR! And, in my opinion, this game delivered. It was fun, the main campaign took me about 8 hours to complete, and it was filled with small bits of humour in between. Gameplay was solid, and it felt awesome using LEGO versions of my favorite LOTR characters. If you're a fan of Lord of the Rings and LEGO in general, I highly recommend this title!
Must have for any LOTR fancup99 | April 15, 2014 | See all cup99's reviews »
Although it is similar too many of the other Lego games this one seems unique. It follows all the fellowship, and you get to play every last event that happened in the movies. The graphics are a great mix of Lego blocks and 3-D visuals. This game features voice acting from lines taken straight from the movies. Of course it is a funny, fun, and light mood game so I recommend it for all ages.
Absolutely Amazing!!!Percyro | Jan. 8, 2014 | See all Percyro's reviews »
This game is phenomenal. Period. Yes it is LEGO, but that doesn't' detract from the gameplay at all. I've played older LEGO games, and at the time those were amazing, but this just blows that game out of the water! You get the whole world of Middle-Earth to explore and the story is like 12 hours if you search some extra stuff, but mainly focus on the story. It sticks pretty close to the movies, just LEGO style. The graphics also surprised me for a LEGO game. I don't think I can name any flaws about this game, if you like LEGO games or are a fan of the Lord of the Rings, I highly recommend this game.
