About the 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.

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.

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.

Of all lego games, this is the best one. Really fun and exiting, you can spend dozins of hours playing this and new things still happen. Simply very awesome game with the real voices from the real actors. You can experience all the awesome battles not just watch a cutscene of them. For an example the battle with the Balrog of Morgof :D You acually play the part where you fall down with the Balrog. And besides the real levels you can do quests, find secret places, do a bonus level, craft funny hats, weapons and more, you can gain money to buy all the awesome characters, red bricks, and so on. Don't compare this Lego game with another Lego game, because this is totally diffrent, in a very good way. Would absolutely recommend this for anyone. This game, is worth every single penny.

100/10

Great addition to the Lego game series. Love how they added in the voices from the movies in the appropriate places. If you like the lego series of games by Traveller's Tales you will love this one.
