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.

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!

Matching the intensity of Peter Jackson's iconic films, while staying true to the Lego based games with it's sense of humor and cooperative gameplay, Lego Lord of the rings shouldn't dissappoint fans of both the Lego brand and The Lord of the Rings franchise.

Best part about it all: The original cast from the films play as their characters. :D

As a fan of both Lego and LOTR, I'd say this was a good game. It may also be the first voiced Lego game that I've played, which was nice. The crafting system was pretty easy to understand and the achievements are completely doable. Good for hours of entertainment, and the fact that it doesn't suffer from technical issues like some of the other Lego games is a plus.

I have played this game for over 39 hours and I still didn't get bored of it. Playing through the storyline is really fun but trying to comlete the game 100% takes time, and as I told you I really took my time with it. I actually couldn't finish the game 100% because of a bug or glitch but it's still one of my favourite games of all time.

5 minutes in and i was already hooked. i am absolutely loving this game. makes me want to watch LOTR again.

it also has a funny twist on things in most of the cut scenes. one of the rare times when i utterly enjoy the cut scenes and wish they were longer.

This game has the perfect combination of Tolkien lore (the lore from the movies), LoTR art style and the fun that LEGO games always have. The world is vast but sometimes confusing to go around.

8/10

I highly recommend this game, however; if you play it with your keyboard you WILL have trouble sometimes controling the characters. Other then that annoyance it is a wonderful game.

Very fun game, follows the storyline from The Lord Of The Rings films accurately, a lot of the cutscenes are also exactly the same as the films, but with a bit of added humour (the bit where the Nazgul had the surfboard had me rolling). The open world is incredible, it's a scaled-down version of Middle-Earth which you can roam around when you're not playing story levels, fetching items and finding collectibles. Excellent game overall.

Open world LEGO game... set in Middle Earth. Seriously, who says no to that!? Oh, you just left Bree? Well why not go check out Isengard or Minas Tirith? You can with this game! The open world aspect was great. Random quest givers throughout the open world, hidden mini-figs throughout the open world, special items. It's incredibly fun, and very replayable.

50/10 will play again and again and again.

With the exception of the Fellowship of the Ring game (which came out before the movies) this may be the only Lord of the Rings game that is any good...which is weird...and kinda sad... but there it is. Open world which is kinda cool. tongue in cheek and slap stick comedy. good level construction. for a lego game oddly satisfying

EDIT: Somehow I forgot to mention that Battle for Middle Earth Is also on the short list of good lotr games

Lego Lord of the Rings is quite a good game. You are allowed to traverse the hole world of Middle-Earth and relive every moment of the movies with a small amount of humor that comes with all the lego games. In my opinion I would recomed this game to those who love the series Tolkien created.

As far as LEGO games go, this game is definitely... well, a LEGO game.

What I mean by this is that if you have ever played a LEGO game in your life then you already know everything there is to know mechanically about this game. In my experience, LEGO games are not so much about ground breaking, innovative gameplay; but rather, immensely enjoyable fun for the whole family that comes in all kinds of assorted flavors. Personally, I find the Star Wars flavor to be the best out of all of them, but for the same reason that a die-hard Harry Potter fan would tell you that the Harry Potter LEGO Games are the best.

Overall, if you haven't ever played a LEGO game, then don't just buy the "latest and greatest". Buy a flavor you love, and I promise you won't be disappointed :)

Lego and Tt Games have done it again. they have made another wonderful fun and funny game based off a popular movie franchise. Now i'll be the first to say that i normally do not play movie tie in games. But with it being a Lego game that doesn't really matter. And here is why:

THE GOOD:

Each film that the game is based on lasts only 6 levels each and is told from the major parts of the film.

The characters are all voiced by the same actors from the films.

Fun repeatitive gameplay. Not once did i ever get bored with the building.

Classic Lego humor we all know and love.

THE BAD:

Control wise all u use is the keyboard and that's it. Now me i have no trouble using that. But if you dont want to invest into a PC controller ore hate using just the keyboard then this and all other Lego games for the PC are not for you mainly cause they all use just the keyboard.

As most games they give you that others cannot but this can give you everything! It has action, adventure, open world, puzzle, family friendly, local co-op, comedy, and lots more! This game is so fun, I was thinking on buying this for $19.99 but I was lucky and got it for $4.99. Its worth full price. This game is also long which is awesome not to mention this game has Lord of the rings lines, this is the only LEGO do have that.

Heart-felt fun as always, though a bit overstuffed with collectables

Contains all the charm and fun Lego games are known for, and some surprisingly quality nods to Tolkien as well. An excellent choice for casual couch coop. A few areas feel lackluster (Minas Tirith being one room, for instance, and lacking any siege of Gondor level), but overall the world is well constructed and relaxing to gallop about.

I'll say this though, the collectables are obnoxious and perhaps the numerical peak in the Lego series. Playing through the game you'll come across quite a few blocked off areas and currently indestructible bricks. At first this makes you eager to go back and satisfy that completionist urge, but the sheer number of them quickly becomes overwhelming. Unlike Lego Star Wars (where a thorough first try would net you the majority of a level's secrets), you'll probably have to play the same levels half a dozen times before being able to sit at a comfy 100%.

But don't let that dissuade you from an otherwise enjoyable game! It's unadulterated Lego fun and a quality escape for a few lazy afternoons.

Lego: Lord of the Rings is a wonderful, delightful little platformer, that doesn't disappoint.
It is invariably plagued by all the usual issues of platformers, such as awkward camera angles, devolution of play style into repetitive button sequences towards endgame and iterative puzzles. Yet for all that it is entertaining to play, for any fan of the series (LotR or Lego). Telltale Games manage to make the game humorous, which is where its lasting appeal will lie. From ridiculous gags, such as carrot arrows stuck through Pippin's head and the inclusion of most of the comic relief scenes from Jackson's films, the game will at some point have you chuckling and deliberately rewatching some little humorous cutscene.
The game is also fairly extensive with lots to do, and may require multiple playthroughs to see everything and acquire all the items. There are lots of little secret areas tucked away to find, some of which are quite beautiful, even if rendered in lego blocks! It is this encouraging of exploration where the games longevity will predominantly lie, so in terms of time to money investment it is worthwhile, especially as it is relatively inexpensive now.
