LEGO Lord of the Rings
I've been thinking for years: "The only popular classic movie series that Tt Games hasn't made a LEGO game off of was The Lord of the Rings." Well, I can't say that anymore! I've never been a really big fan of these LEGO games, but i liked the LEGO Star Wars series. I might get this, because the movies were good and This game looks better than the other ones.
i love this game, it's awesome!!!
this game to me is the best game that has been made. It is the best because it has great graphics, and it is just so awesome to play. It is just like the movie!!
Good game, if it worked properly
As with the recent LEGO games, the open world concept is fantastic. The story is as good as the books/movies with the game following the movies pretty closely. The music is straight from the movies and transitions nicely as you move through the overworld of Middle-earth. The graphics are good as long as motion is at a minimum. When multiple objects are moving at the same time the game gets awfully choppy. The game developers should have ha some of these animations packaged in a install to prevent the issue. The main gripe is the most troublesome part of this review. The game doesn't work. Not on a complete play though at least. I am only at the third chapter of Two Towers and the game has frozen twice. These instances were at the shore near the gap of Rohan, Fangorn forest when Merry and Pipin are on Treebeard, and in the field near Edoras. One of which caused the system to completely freeze. For a game that was delayed, I would not expect such issues and I hope they are fixed in a patch soon.
I'm proud to say I'm Buying this game
As far as I'm concerned Lego games, are awesome and downright fun but for someone who doesn't replay games to find the stuff I missed the 1st time, I find the Lego games have little replay value.
However, this is a game I will not rent(like the others) but buy. While this does have the stuff to hunt for, I am not buying it for that, I am buying it for these 3 reasons.
1st I want another Lord of the Rings game...this isn't to hard to understand.
2nd I want this game for the 85 playable characters. Now that means I can play characters in this I haven't played in any other Lord of the Rings game.
3rd and perhaps the biggest reason of all. Replay value for Lego game fans and/or Lord of the Rings fans like me...There will be stuff that would make me want to replay the game so I can't wait till this comes out.
Best Lego's Game to Date
My wife and I are big Lego's fans and we pre-ordered this game. First, it was only 49.99 and we received a Lego piece "Elrond" for free, as well as on the receipt was a redemption code for weapons upgrades. Those alone made it worth the purchase.
Gameplay: The graphics are STUNNING. Its beautiful and the background scenery is lifelike, a huge improvement from previous games. Also, the story is Free-Roam, you can do side quest and lots of exploring, another massive improvement. Two player co-op is improved as well, as you and your partner can play two stories simultaneously. I was fighting Sauron while my wife was playing Frodo fending off the black rider. First time I've seen that in Lego's or any video game.
This game is driven towards co-op, as my wife can branch off and do a side quest, while I am exploring or doing something else. The characters are well made and like previous Lego games have their own attributes to unlock different things specific to that character.
Voices! YES! This game has characters that speak, which I love tremendously. No more "uh" and "mmmm" and sign language. Adding the voices has implemented the serious undertone of the dangers the ring brings and how important it is to destroy it. All the voices are those from the Movies (Elijah Wood ect.) which just adds the icing to the cake.
Did I mention the graphics? They are by far the best I've seen for Lego's and are gorgeous in 1080i on my tv. The scenery is life-like, the water that flows in the rivers looks real, the tree leaves move independently, like something out of a Pixar movie.
They show concept art in the loading screens, I am HUGE fan of concept art and am so happy to view the small details as I wait. Speaking of Loading, its FAST. My PS3 loads levels in less than a minute, and you only have to Load when you are moving into a new location. Locations are MASSIVE, so you load very few and far between.
This game has customizing too! You can find Mythril and have a black smith make you a weapon, as long as you have the bluprint for it.
Hours of side quest, lots of loot, ton of fun with a friend, and overall the best Lego game I've ever played. If you are on the bench about purchasing yet another Lego game, then have no fear, you will not regret this. They really pull you in from the beginning and don't stop, you don't want to put down the controller.
Don't wait! Buy this game and relive your favorite moments from Lord of the Rings today!
LOTR, In Lego!
This Is Maybe A Buy From Me, Idk About Anyone Else But I Am A Gamer I Preorder And Buy Games Almost Every Week, I Love Games And I Love Lord Of The Rings, The Movies Amazed Me, Maybe Because I Am A Hack And Slash Type Of Guy, But I Also Love The Lego Games, I Loved Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga, Lego Indiana Jones And Lego Batman, Lord Of The Rings Is By Far One Of My Favorite Movie Series EVER So Basically This Is My Type Of Game! I Love The Price It Is Pretty Cheap For A Preorder Which Is One Of The Reasons I Might Buy It, Yes It Is Only 10 Dollars Cheaper Than A Normal Preorder But Hey, Its Cheaper. I Also Might Buy This For The 85 Playable Charecters. Hopefully Just Hopefully This Will Have Free Roam. I Have A Small Wishlist From This Game And Some Of The Things On There Are, Free Roam, Good Combat, Lots Of Levels And Lastly Great Charecters. I Have High Hopes From This Game, Probably Not GOTY But I Can't Say It Wont Make GOTY.
If this Does Come Out On November 13th Which I Hope Is The Final Date, I'm Hoping They Won't Push It Back Any Farther, I LOVE Lego Games, I Grew Up With Legos And I Purchased Several Lego Games, I Purchased: Lego Batman, Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga, Lego Indiana Jones And Lego Indiana Jones 2. I Am Purchasing This Tomorrow And Possibly The Guide, The Reason I Am Buying This Is Because Lego Games Were Always Fun And Sometimes Never Got Old. By Far My Favorite Lego Game Was Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga, Next Was Batman And Then Lego Indiana Jones. I Hear In This Game You Can Craft Your Own Weapons And There Is Free Roam And The Other HUGE Reason I Am Buying This is Supposedly 85 Playable Characters, I Am Looking Forward To That Elrond Mini-fig. Lord Of The Rings Was One Of My Favorite Movie Series Ever And I Even Had Some LOTR Games But They Weren't Lego. This Looks As If It Will Be A Big Hit For Tt Games (Travelers Tales). Nothing Disappointed Me with The Trailers And I Doubt The Game Will! I Am Really Looking Forward To This!
I have watched all the movies and read all the books and i cannot wait to play as a Lego elf that shoots 30 arrows per second!
Shut up and take my money!
I can't wait for this game! I've always dreamed of a Lord of the Rings LEGO game! I hope it's going to be a free roam sort of thing like in LEGO Star Wars III. I also hope I get to play as a troll and Lurtz!
All of my favorite Books and Movies and TV Shows are becoming LEGO Video Games!!! My only favorite show that is still not a LEGO theme is Doctor Who. Anyways, This will be one of the best I hope! I LOVE The Lord of the Rings so much! The trailer makes it look so so so so so cool! CAN'T WAIT!!!!
