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.

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.

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.

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

Could be fun but unfortunately it's very buggy on my computer. Often the music seems broken - it stops in between, continues and then stops again. Or the whole game start to stop every few seconds. And I'm not that happy with how they handled the savegames. Sametimes it takes a while until you find a stone where you can save the game.

It's a pitty because it really feels like under different circumstances it would be quite enjoyable! Of course in terms of storytelling it's nothing new and basically like playing a funnier version of the LoTR movies and the gameplay is simple. But anyways if you're like and you don't have the same problems I experienced it might totally be worth it!!! But of course that means taking a risk...

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.

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.

It has alot of good stuff but... It has too many problems that ruin the good things about it :(

Good things are it has a large open world to explore in-between missions, but I don't like that you need to beat the campagin to be allowed to use any character in-between the missions, it makes it so you pretty much should jsut bum-rush all the missions so that you can REALLY have true freedom in the open world.

The cast of characters is okay, im not a fan off it having say 3 costumes for certian characters like arigon, frodo etc. and it counting as 3 seperate characters, though for actual number of characters that are unqie in their abilites their is not too much (check lego marvel for chracters with a wide variety of abilites) However Lego LOTR has a pretty infuriating chracter select method, after you beat the main campagin the main fellowship members are set as your PERMENANT quick select characters and if you want to switch to ANYONE cool like golum, saroun, ghost king etc. you have to g to choose other character option, then hcoose from large list. If that was not bad enough, if you get to an area that requires you to have a certian characters ability to get by (i.e gimlis boudler smash) when you switch to that character, if you try to go back to your cool character they have been replaced by the default fellowship character!

Its ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, you should be able to customize the character wheel to have any 8 characters you want ready whenever.

The mithril and treasure item system is really cool! Being able to collect a huge amount of items that augment your abilites of just look cool or grant entirly special abilites is awesome, but same as the character select its a total chore to do. Say you find a rope section but you can't be bothered switching to sam (the rope bearer) to get past it? No problem, if you have a mithril rope and your in free play mode you can just summon it out your trove and use that with any character, HOWEVER, your items are NOT saved to characters AND if you pull out another mithril item that is a tool/weapon it will overide your current item.

So even if you have 6 empty slots, bring out the mithril trowl and now have 5 empty slots you will NEVER get to equip another thing in them, your trowl will jsut disappear.

So basiclly if you had hoped to ever create a badass custom character with aragons sword, then give him all the tools and special armour peices to have all ablites you get to EAT ♥♥♥♥. Because the best you can do is give him the armour, one tool, but then, if you switch to someone else, yo uwill have to re-summon them AND re equip all the items. Which is pretty ♥♥♥♥ing terrible desgin. (oh and yh, in frodos house you can make custom characters)

The game incorpirates a side quest system, however they ALL seem to be fetch quests, though they do net you access to more treasures since whatever you fetch you get a copy of or your trove which is good.

actual story is a highly watered down version of LOTR, giving you most of the important stuff to know whats going on, though some things are completely missed like that idiot king/mayor in gondar who is included as a buyable character even though you literally NEVER see him in the campagin.

So the game is decent, the large open world is overwhelming and the sheer armount of unlockables is like a wet dream for digital hoarders such as myself, however its almost completely ruined by the fact that any awesome stuff you find or characters you unlock take far too long to switch too and equpping them is only temporary. To the point it actually does ruin the game. Also most fights/bosses can be very repetative, requiring you to do the exact same action multipel times OR situations where you should win without hassle, i.e hitting golum taking a heart, but hitting him again does no dmg becaused he is scripted to jump back onto cliff and keep throwing ♥♥♥♥ at you until you do the exact same repatative task for bringing him down.

Also I need to mention the controls are terrible, I mean, a lego game with no controller support? Really? and the default keyboard controls are actual dirt, I rebinded them imedtially.

Overall, Its maybe worth it if you are gunning to play all the lego games or are a big fan of the series, but I would highly recommend lego Marvel over this game.

Lego Lord of the Rings has a massive good amount of content that is ruined by the way its accessed/handled... Its a shame, I really found myself wanting to like it :(
