Rated 10 out of 10 by RootBeerOfDoom Better than I was expecting (a lot).
When I first saw this game advertised, my knee jerk reaction was "YES, another Lego game." Then I began to think about Lego star wars three, which while different from other games, had left me underwhelmed. However, as I heard more and more I knew I had to get the game to see what the future of Lego games was. And I am glad I did. First off, the game introduces better animated attacks, and a block button, putting the player more in control of the attacks. The greatest improvement I saw, was the fetch quests, now, instead of having you play free play to find a red brick to purchase, you find or forge an item and give it to a character, who will then offer you a red brick to purchase, and on top of that you get to keep the item they wanted. This lengthens the free roam aspect of the game, and to me is a much better way of handling red bricks. In short, if you want a good, much improved Lego game, I could not recommend a better one.
Rated 9 out of 10 Another great Lego Game
I was curious if I was going to get this game being such a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings because I didn't want this to be a case where a company screws up things throughout the series. Now that I have played the game, I am glad I purchased it. This is another great take on a franchise from the Lego perspective. The great character models and sound make you feel at times like your not even in a Lego game. That is, until the great parts of humor come along throughout the story. Little things like Frodo dropping the ring into a hot cup of tea to reveal the language of Mordor on the ring instead of by fire were a little bothersome to me at first, but after I got a better understanding of the humor Lego was bringing along with the game I welcomed it. A great game for Lego game fans and fans of the Lord of the Rings.

All right, I'm going to lay it out on the table...I'm not a huge fan of voice acting in these LEGO games. After playing the LEGO Batman 2 demo, I'm a little more on board, but I still wish they would stick with slapstick comedy that they have been doing before now. However, I feel that, if they are going to have voice acting in LEGO games, they need to make it original. Instead, LEGO Lord of the Rings chose to go the lazy route and rehash the dialogue from the films. That said...I'm SUPER excited for this game! I'm really hoping that, once The Hobbit comes out in December, they release that as a downloadable campaign. They already are doing downloadable characters (LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes), it only seems to follow suit. Man, these games just keep getting better and better!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Sorrows Fun game
As someone that saw the movies, free play is better than story. Only because I know whats going to happened so it left alot of the battles for me...just waiting to do whatever I needed to do to get to the next part. Like for example: When Gandalf fights Saruman. I knew he was going to lose so spending time fighting him, felt alittle "chorish" waiting for the cut scene to finally pop after hitting him 3 times or whatever. If I didn't know what was going to happen, then I probably wouldn't have minded it so much. Alot of the fights felt like to me. I just think it's LOTR though because I knew what was going to happen in all the lego games I played and I loved story mode in all of them.
I think Story Mode would be a pretty epic experience if you didn't know the story already. So I found myself just pushing through story mode, while I did enjoy it, to open up all my free plays. I ofcourse went back through all the levels which were much more enjoyable for some reason in free play.
All in all it's a good game that's really fun. And I love how you can switch to different parts of the story that happen simultaneously. So if you're tired playing Frodo & Sam's story, just switch over to Aragon, Gimli and Legolas.

This was the first Lego game I ever bought and it got me hooked on all Lego games, it was sooo good! I was surprised by how much I liked it. Any Lord of the Rings fan will appreciate all of the cute and funny characters and clips in this game. One of the best games I ever played.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Kingdomkid Good LEGO game. Has some issues.
This game was great. It had a good story and Middle-Earth looked amazing. The story is interesting, fast paced at some points, and funny just like a LEGO game should be. But sadly I saw some issues. First you don't get to ride the mounts (horses) where ever on Middle-Earth. You reach an invisible boundary that makes your horse kick you off and run back to where it was before. It is annoying. Second the restart characters. I call Frodo and Sam restart characters because of an annoying situation. Here is the situation: I am traveling around Middle-Earth and then I find out there is a character that is nearby but only available during the night but currently my map is on the day setting. So I click on the map and click the map stone statue and change the setting to night. When I get there my characters are not the same as they were before. Instead my characters are Frodo and Sam. And finally the wars. If anybody had LEGO Star Wars III you will see what I am talking about. In the Star Wars game you can command soldiers and lead armies into battle. You fought against droids and could customize your battle zone with cool buildings and weapons. But in this game you don't do that. I thought you would be able to fight the enemies like in the Star Wars game but instead you only fight a few. This was the biggest disappointment. Other than these three issues the game was good. I hope to see other Free-Roam LEGO games in the future.

Ok so i see a lot of people saying same old Lego game. Well im here to tell you your wrong, Yes we see a lot of the same stuff but there is tons of new like making your own weapons and items and i believe armor as well. This is going to be the best Lego game and only the 2nd to use voice's This is defiantly a buy for anyone who is a fan of Lord of the Rings or of Lego, and for anyone who has a child they want to play with. I'm buying this game the moment it comes out and you should too.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AppingnGaming Lord of the Rings in Lego?
When I first saw this I was surprised that they were making a LEGO game out of Lord of the Rings. They just keep making interesting LEGO games! I wonder if this will be a series with more than one game? I'm also curious to see if they will have a part for the Hobbit, Bilbo! As maybe an extra level for when you complete the main game? Just my thoughts, this game should turn out very good as the LEGO games just keep getting better and better!
Rated 0 out of 10 by morducto can't wait
i can't wait for this to come out after playing lego batman 2 dc superheros i was a little disapponted it wasn't as good as i was hoping i would be so im not getting my hopes up to much about this one but it should be fun and entertaning none the less i hope that they include the hobbit for download that would be more worth it pluse if they actually do what they say their doing with it will defently will be worth the time to play
