Lego Lord of the Rings is perhaps the best game in the Lego franchise series. It is a triumphant mixture of a classic epic tale with an art style that is both recognizable and child-friendly. Set in an open world, this game does an excellent job of convincing the player that the Lord of the Rings universe was always meant to belong in Lego form. While taking the player through a sizeable portion of the story-line of the full trilogy, this game is full of recognizable environments and even Easter eggs for fans of the trilogy to discover. The gameplay is an enjoyable take on the Lego series style of 3-D action and loot discovery, and the graphics are superb. Utilizing a fantastic sense of humour, there are many laugh out loud moments throughout the adventure. This is also one of the first games in the Lego series to use voice acting from the movies that it is based on. This is done masterfully, and really adds to the atmosphere as you play. Lego Lord of the Rings is an adventure well worth the journey to Mordor for LOTR and Lego fans alike. I highly recommend it.
As Lego games go, they don't get much better than this. As a Lord of the Rings fan, this game pays homage to the series better than you would expect from the child friendly Lego series. The story is masterfully retold using colourful blocky characters, and infused with a fantastic sense of humour and plenty of Easter eggs for LOTR fans to find. The gameplay is fun and interesting throughout, and the graphics shine. As one of the first Lego franchise games to use voice acting from the movies it is based on, this welcome addition simply draws you in deeper to this universe. The path to Mordor is fraught with blocky dangers, but each one of them is worth facing in Lego Lord of the Rings. A must play for Lego fans or LOTR fans.
Take all of the best elements of the Lord of the rings trilogy. Mix it with the charm of the lego universe. Add some very funny LOTR based jokes and Easter eggs. On top of all of this, include beautiful graphics and engaging gameplay. These elements are the recipe for a great game. Lord of the Rings fans will be more then satisfied with the level of depth and detail provided in this game. As one of the first Lego games to utilize voice acting from the franchise on which it is based, this is the cherry on top of a pretty sweet treat of a video game. Highly recommended, 10/10
Simply the best and most diverse lego game around. I played the entire game and enjoyed it from the beginning until the end, i found it to be great when you play it with friends. I did every achievement and it felt like never before. One thing is for sure LEGO Lord of the Rings will drain all your time in a pleasant and entertaining way. Lego games are full of that amazing sarcastic humour that characterizes this series and LEGO Lord of the Rings is not an exception. Visuals are what you would expect from a lego game, not overwhelming but satistying. You should definitely give this game a try if you're a LOTR fan.
I love LEGO games and this didn't disappoint. The game is very faithful to the storylines but in classic lego fashion. Being able to roam Middle Earth as a tiny lego character feels good, and the number of characters which are playable means there's endless hours of fun to be had. Like any lego game, you'll never be stuck for anything to do. With quite a long story mode and lots of mini games to play, theres lots of fun to be had and it can be made even more fun by doing it in co-op with a friend!
