About This Game

Based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, LEGO® The Lord of the Rings follows the original story-lines 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 re-imagined 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. But the ring wants to be found and the road to Mount Doom, the only place where it can be destroyed, will be perilous and riddled with Orcs and fouler things. 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 mini-figures, as they explore wonders, solve timeless riddles, and overcome endless foes in their quest to destroy the Ring.

Key Features:

  • Explore all of the open-world of Middle-earth and experience epic battles with Orcs, Uruk-hai, the Balrog, the Witch-king, and other fearsome creatures.
  • Wield the power of the Palantír or Seeing-stone (‘one that looks far-away’), and jump between multiple story-lines.
  • Experience the LEGO The Lord of the Rings heroes come to life in an all new way with the mini-fig characters delivering the dialogue from the films.

This is one of the best LEGO games ever made. Co-op is very good in this game, every map is fun and every collectible is great to find. Great LOTR game and great LEGO game.

This is a pretty good game, one of the best LEGO has ever made, but personally, I like the 3DS version of the game better.

LOTR was my first contact with the LEGO series. It received so many good reviews I thought it would be at least mostly fun.
Alas, it is mostly boring as hell.
I admit, technically it is expertly done. It looks good, play smoothly and is overall very polished. But the gameplay mostly consists of two extremely boring features:
1) Running around the area, looking for hidden LEGOs. Could be fun if it wasn't so overwhelmingly omnipresent. Looking behind every bush is somewhat fun when it's mixed with other activities, like for example killing stuff, but on its own it is about as fun as vacuuming a very complicated room with plenty of complicated furniture. Without using hands.
2) Rewatching long scenes from the movie, rendered in the LEGO world. What was the point of this? If they did an actual parody (with actual jokes), or I don't know, did something different, okay, but this? I've seen the movies, thank you very much, it looked better in the cinema, now give me stuff to do or at least let me skip the scene!
There are a lot of good elements too, I really liked the combat mechanics and some ever-changing level design (like the Black Rider motif). But when I finished Bree and I was immediately promised even more running around in search of god damn bricks, I said "Screw that" and dropped the game.
Seriously, I don't know how this title is so liked. Sure, give it a try, it might be perfect for you, but... don't say I didn't warn you.

If you like Lord of the Rings and like Lego poking fun at it, definitely play it for the story. To get it 100%, there are a lot of issues though. Some bugs regarding the achievements and very very (very very very) frustrating controls make it hard to gather all the collectibles.

Jumping and controlling the camera is really awkward, which can be frustrating at times, but when playing the story it is not as prevalent. So if you just want to play it for the story, go for it. If you want to finish it 100%, prepare for some frustration.

If you like Lego, buy this.
If you like Lord of the Rings, buy this.

If you don't like Lego or Lord of the Rings, you are possibly a robot. Or maybe Sauron. Buy it anyway.

Play this with someone who doesn't do much gaming, and if you both enjoy the license, you will have a blast. You can't die, and it's never hard. Just cute and endearing.

I am neither a big LEGO fan nor a big LOTR fan (I mean, I have seen the movies, but that is the extent of my interest in LOTR).

But this game is super beautiful, the game mechanics are easy to grasp, and puzzles while somewhat challenging at times, never held me up for more than a minute or two. The devs has done well to find a way to nearly-constantly trigger my brain's pleasure center (with rewards, sounds, and visuals) that I don't tire of playing it.

I can safely recommend this title to gamers of all ages and skill-levels. :)

Buy with impunity!

This to me was a departure from the slightly old feeling formula of the past games and an attempt to do some new things. I think this game is definitely a fun game even if there are annoyances to be found.

The game uses audio from the movies, which is good and bad for me. The audio is well done and as always it is nice to hear those familiar voices, but it does kill the humor and creativity of a lot of the cutscenes. I wish they had went back to no audio for the voices.

The character wheel in game is useful but can definitely be cumbersome as it becomes an extra step in getting to the full roster, which when you have a lot of characters of when free roaming is very important.

The questing is crap to me. Making me go back again to other levels and get items is not fun, it is boring. This is a feature I think was fixed well in more recent Lego outings.

The mythril equipment was very good and I think brought creativity to the game, especially with the musical shoes and the Disco Phial.

Combat was so so, I actully thought fighting would be improved for a game like this but it was the same.

Level design was done well and I think encapsulated those scenes very well. If not for the many game breaking glitches and the ability to somehow get 1 or 2 extra minikits or items over the limit effectively keeping you from reaching 100%.

Overall I would recommend this game with a 7.5 / 10. The newer games have improved this formula but this one is left in that time between old and new.
